To any bride searching for beauty services for your wedding day: please stop searching now, because I can't think of anyone better than DMC Makeup Artistry. Dana (makeup) and her partner Jina (hair) did such an amazing job on our hair and makeup. All the ladies looked so... Read More beautiful- our hair and makeup stayed perfectly the entire day, even through strong winds and many happy tears! :) Besides the wonderful job, it was a great help to have everything figured out logistically before the wedding. Prior to our wedding day, I met Dana and Jina for a hair/makeup trial, so we could figure out exactly the look we needed for the wedding. The evening of the trial, a very humid evening, I might add (for those summer brides), I had a rec league softball game: the style stayed intact even under those conditions! I also appreciated that we were able to pay for everything beforehand, just to keep it simple the day of the wedding. Dana is a true professional! The morning of the wedding, both Dana and Jina showed up early to get us ready. Everyone was very impressed at their level of efficiency, and how easy it was to relax before all the day's chaos started. It was worth every penny to not have to go somewhere for hair and makeup. Dana and Jina are a fantastic team! Thank you both for being a part of our day!

Dana did a SPECTACULAR job on my bridal makeup. I generally do not like the look of makeup on my face, but she utilized it in such a way to highlight my natural beauty, rather than covering it up. I was also nervous about pricing with a tight budget in mind and was pleasantly... Read More surprised at the very competitive pricing offered. The level of professionalism was astounding! For my consultation she showed up with a mock up drawing of makeup design based on my facial shape, skin tone and my requested makeup style. She took all of my ideas seriously and delivered a stunning bridal look. On top of it all, she showed up with the same level of pre-work (mock ups) when arriving to do the bridal party make up. She is a true PROFESSIONAL! Dana also was instrumental in setting up my bridesmaids with an excellent hairstylist, Jina. Jina and Dana kept us all entertained on the wedding day and made us feel extremely glamorous after their work was done. I am EXTREMELY happy with how my wedding day turned out and know it wouldn't have been as special without the beautiful work of Dana of DMC Makeup Artistry.

Before Dana did my makeup trial, we met for drinks and appetizers (her suggestion) to get to know each other and just talk over ideas and thoughts about makeup for the wedding.

She listened to my preferences and came to the trial with three different makeup look options, all sketched out. I told you, she's a professional! Being indecisive as I am, she even did different looks on each eye so I could choose between two and really helped ultimately guide me towards the best look that will totally complement my dress, which she also asked for pictures of and considered when she was drawing up ideas. Dana even found the absolutely perfect shade of red lip stain. Even though I am usually terrified of bold lips, Dana made the whole look work and found the exact shade that looked just right without being garish. I admit I am picky when it comes to my makeup, and Dana listened very patiently and responded to each and every tweak we went through. I used my trial as my makeup for my bridal shower and was so happy with how pictures turned out. I am so excited to work with Dana again for the wedding!
