Diane is a highly sought after expert makeup and hair artist known for her fresh with an edge, modern beauty aesthetic. She's spent nearly three decades working in beauty, fashion, print, celebrity, red carpet, runway and commercials.
She honed her makeup skills early, at first by sneaking into her Mom’s “Avon Lady” stash each morning before first grade class, throughout adolescence she took inspiration from magazines, art books and films. After trading her Criminal Justice studies for beauty school she worked her way from the makeup counter and salon into a full time freelance career.
Her down to earth personality, attention to detail, and ability to put the talent at ease while delivering what the client needs has garnered an extensive resume' including: Allure, Elle, Vanity Fair, Sports Illustrated, Stila, Addidas, BMW, Levi's, Nordstrom, Nike, Glenn Close, Muhammad Ali, Antonio Banderas and more (below).
Her runway work includes shows for Michael Kors, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Ralph Rucci, Ralph Lauren, Valentino and many more.
Though her freelance bookings keep her busy and traveling often, Diane also owns a successful on- location luxury beauty team and through her My Beauty Muse + Makeup Artist Masterclass coaching and mentoring programs she helps newer artists transform their dreams into successful full time careers.
" Being on set or backstage is my happy place, and my purpose is not only to make the person in my chair look amazing and feel confident, it's also to contribute to the team for a successful end result that the client loves"
