Deanna’s passion for makeup artistry started at an early age, when mesmerized by the colorful costuming and makeup of the Wizard of Oz.  

During her teenage years, she was in constant demand to provide classmates and teacherswith makeup services for proms and class photos and later for stage participants in dance competitions.  

After college, she relocated to Toronto, Canada, honing her craft and earning her degree as a makeup artist at the revered College of Makeup Art & Design.   While in Canada, she worked on numerous projects as varied as television broadcasting, short-film production, and wedding services.

Upon returning to the United States, she joined MAC Cosmetics to expand on certain techniques and work with other established and talented make-up artists.  She was selected for the MAC ‘Impact Team’ and worked on special events to inspire other MAC Artists as well as clients. 

Deanna left MAC to provide her own full service makeup artistry on a free-lance basis.  She has worked on music videos, runway shows, theatrical productions, and extensively in commercial based and wedding applications.   Her love of people and individual challenge enables her to produce custom creations that are unique and personalized.

With over 10 years in the industry, Deanna continues to show her passion for makeup through every client she works with.  The possibility of creating and the challenge that each individual and circumstance provides is what drives her. She brings her innate talent, attention to detail, and enthusiasm to every project for a flawless outcome.
