“Dani was so easy to work with. She listened to what I wanted and followed through. Her work is amazing and all of my girls were very happy with their results!”

Cayla C.

“I hired Dani to do my makeup for engagement photos. Right off the bat she was very responsive. She checked in on what type of look I was going for and was willing to answer any questions I had. Dani came over at 6 am (since the photographer wanted to do 7:30 am photos to catch the golden light) and she was amazing to work with. She is very easy to get along with and makes you feel comfortable. My makeup looked amazing and was exactly what I was envisioning. Plus my makeup still looked great ALL day! Can’t wait to work with Dani again for my wedding day!”

Brynn L.

“Dani was a highlight of my wedding planning.  

She was relaxed and, in turn, made me feel comfortable from my trial to the day of my wedding. I didn't have a completely clear vision of how I wanted my makeup to look, so I just trusted Dani...and I am so glad I did. I felt beautiful on my wedding day thanks to her. I would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat.”
