When people ask Dana how long she’s been a makeup artist, she can hardly remember a time when she wasn’t obsessed with creams and concealers, eyeliners and exfoliants.
With a background in the fine arts, and after graduating from Boston University, Dana moved to New York City to pursue her dream of working in the beauty industry.
She’s worked as a national makeup artist for Trish McEvoy and as a member of Bobbi Brown’s elite New York team. Dana quickly became a favorite makeup and brow artist for top NYC salons such as The Mark Garrison Salon and Loft 26.
With skills in high demand she soon started a beauty consulting company — Beauty Muse, specializing in makeup for brides and special events, personal shopping for cosmetics and skin care, makeup lessons, and brow shaping.
Dana has worked on the wedding of Robert Downey Jr and his wife, Susan Levine, with celebrity wedding planners David Tutera, Preston Bailey and Bryan Rafanelli, and was a featured artist on the We Network’s “Get Married” and BRIDES Magazine “Dream Team Wedding.” She was honored be recognized as Boston Magazine’s “Best of Boston” for her brow shaping talents and to be named “Boston’s Best” bridal makeup artist by The Improper Bostonian.
Her clientele includes celebrities Ivana Trump, Bethenny Frankel, Emmy Rossum and Michael Phelps, and designers Vera Wang, Marchesa, Jenny Yoo, Reem Acra, Abaete, Foley + Corinna and Cynthia Steffe. She has been recognized for her work in skin care and makeup in magazines such as ELLE, InStyle, Lucky, Sports Illustrated and BRIDES. Television credits include Entertainment Tonight, Good Morning America, Ugly Betty, Lifetime, ESPN, Life and Style Television and The Food Network.
After years of honing her skills in New York City, Dana is ecstatic to be back home in Boston.
