Appleton, WI Wedding Makeup Artist

Hey, bride-to-be! Creating the perfect look for a bride’s special day or engagement is something I love to do. I thrive being around the high energy that surrounds the bridal party as they get ready. Each bride is different. my job is to provide a makeup application that enhances your look while maintaining your authenticity. Having a skincare background I take into consideration all of the factors that keep skin and makeup fresh all day. starting with skincare to prep, primers to hold in place, and determining which is best between airbrush and traditional foundation. choosing colors and details that go with their features and wedding details. applying makeup to your specific needs.

“I wish I could leave a higher star review!! Dana did an incredible job on my makeup this past weekend! I felt glamorous and my husband complimented me on how great I looked throughout the day. My makeup stayed just as beautiful through the entire night even though it was 90 degrees, windy, and humid all day! I would definitely recommend her for all your special occasions.
