hi, i’m dana!

I created Dana Michele Makeup, because I see beauty in its entirety and intricate detail. As a professional makeup artist, I hold responsibility in providing an exceptional makeup experience while educating and introducing simple techniques in makeup artistry that create a feeling of beauty and empowerment.

When I’m not at the makeup chair you can find me with my two crazy kitties Boots and Nash, or enjoying life with my husband Mike.  I love to travel and explore new places, try new restaurants and coffee shops, and go on outdoor adventures. I thrive in the summer, but fall- Green Bay Packers football season- is my jam! When not attending a game or tailgate, you can find me pacing around or sitting on the edge of my seat cheering at the TV.
