Bridal & Engagement Makeup
Creating the perfect look for a bride’s special day or engagement is something I love to do. I enjoy being around the high energy that surrounds the bridal party as they get ready.
Every bride is different. My job is to provide a makeup application that enhances your look while maintaining authenticity. Having a skincare background I take into consideration all of that factors to 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 the makeup to the individuals specific needs whether that’s enhancing or reducing a feature.
“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. Side note- would totally just hang out with this girl too… very cool”
Stephanie Hurley, Bride
“After a not so great makeup trial at a different salon, I went out on a whim to see if Dana had availability for bridal makeup since I loved my makeup previously done for my engagement pictures. Dana was willing to shift around her busy wedding schedule last minute and fit me in for my bridal makeup. Most of all, I showed only 1 picture, and Dana was able to take it and make my makeup exactly how I imagined. I felt beautiful and my makeup lasted until 3am! Thank you so much, Dana!”

Why Invest in Bridal Makeup?
It’s a brides most photographed day with every smile and tear captured. Wedding photographs are an important part of a couple’s “history”, as they are the memories to look back on. When you look and feel beautiful, that emotion is reflected in your body language and onto the camera. It makes the photographers job a lot easier when hair and skin are at their best!

My Bridal & Engagement Makeup Process
I work with traditional and airbrush foundation, based on preference and what works best with that individuals skin type. I have found that when it comes to bridal makeup on a wedding day where you need that flawless longevity, airbrush foundation makeup is best. The finish can be matte or dewy, with a light to heavy coverage depending on what’s desired. (Check out this article on the differences between foundations here).
