I was married on May 8th 2016 at the Garrison in Garrison, NY and Diana was THE BEST makeup artist ever. Initially I had found another (more expensive!) makeup artist, who then flaked out on me, so I was searching for someone a little last minute desperately and thank goodness... Read More I found Diana. She was super responsive, so incredibly kind and patient (and fun!) to work with and truly a magician with the makeup. She did my makeup, my mothers, and 7 of my bridesmaids in a limited amount of time and was receptive to everyone's demands all with a smile on her face. She was patient to changes at the makeup trial and she had me looking exactly the way I wanted for my big day (if not even better). Diana creates the perfect balance between dramatic while remaining natural so that I loved how I looked in person and also in all my photos. I didn't have to retouch (except a bit of lipstick) for the entirety of my wedding day (~8 hours) because she used such great product and knew how to make it last. I wish I could keep her always. :-) You will not regret booking Diana. Her prices are totally reasonable, the quality of her work speaks for itself, and she is a complete delight!!!!

I met Diana by an off chance at a salon while I was trying out eyelash extensions for my upcoming wedding. While I was laying on my back for an hour we sparked up a few conversations many of which revolved around my wedding plans. I had let her know that I was on the search for... Read More a makeup artist since everyone I had a consultation with did not make the cut and vwa-la Diana began telling me how her background was in makeup. I only had a couple of weeks left and was a little nervous that I didn't have time for a go-around before the big day but I had an innate trust in her. She drove over an hour to my parent's home where I was getting ready and showed up promptly. She quickly set up her station and was at my beck and call in no time flat. I can't believe how beautiful she "made" me! She brought out all of the natural enhancements on my face and easily covered up any flaws. My face was smooth and clean, did not feel heavy or cakey. Diana was not rushing to her next client or stressed under the pressure of an amped bride. She did nothing short of an amazing job and knows her product like the back of her hand. If I could hire Diana for every date night with my husband or family photo shoot, I would! Sweet, talkative, smart, and beautiful -- love her!

I was happy with the make-up. Everyone looked great.

As someone who doesn't wear makeup on a daily basis, I was a little worried about picking a make up artist for my wedding. Would I look like myself? Would I feel comfortable?

I'll start by saying that I was so excited for my trial. I had so much fun talking to Diana and when she finally handed me the mirror, I was completely blown away.

It was muggy out and I was quite hot in my dress, I thought for sure I'd be sweating it off, but it really didn't move. And I didn't even look sweaty! It actually still looked matte by the time I got to the hotel after. All my bridesmaids looked gorgeous the entire night, as well. She also did the groom and best man, which really evened their skin tones for pictures!! I was already recommending Diana to people before the wedding even happened, after my trial. And now I'm just going to continue and I will definitely get my makeup done by her again for events when I can!!!
