About Me

"Denise inspires the already creatively inspired, making every photographer she works with a better artist.  A good photographer, great.  A great photographer, genius.  For the past six years it has been my pleasure to call her my colleague and my friend." --Richard Marz, Marz Photography, Los Angeles, CA

MAKEUP | for me is a true art form, and every face is a unique canvas.  It simply enhances, or completely transforms.  It expresses identity, or completely changes it.  It’s subtle and it’s powerful.  It’s sophisticated and it’s unconventional.  It’s my inspiration, my motivation, and my passion.

PHOTOGRAPHY | the ultimate artistic adventure.  A collaboration of creative minds.  Fantasy becoming reality.  From editorial and high fashion to glamour and boudoir.  Even simple bridal portraits.  Let’s create magic together.

SPECIAL OCCASIONS | nothing compares to seeing the teary smile on the face of a beautiful bride… or the giddy joy of a teen going to her first prom… when she sees her makeup for the first time. She feels like the princess she’s always dreamed of being. Those are the moments I live for. I’ve had thousands of those moments in my career, and I hope they never end. Your wedding, your formal dance, your special dinner or party… whatever the occasion may be. I’d be happy to put that giddy smile on your face, too.

LESSONS | I truly believe that everyone has the ability to be an artist. If you can dream it, you can create it. What’s the harm in doing a little experimenting with color and technique to find all the different versions of you? It’s only makeup. You can always wash it off, right? So let’s have some fun! Let me help you do a little self-discovery and find the real you. I’m available for private and group sessions.

ME | 20 years of doing makeup professionally, a lifetime of being fascinated by art and beauty. I’m self-taught and proud of it, with a lot of inspiration from the trainers at MAC Cosmetics and the other incredible artists with whom I’ve surrounded myself. I’m a perfectionist and I’m a visionary. I have an innate patience and compassion for people. People say that I have a very positive, warm and calming energy surrounding me. I’ve won customer service awards at every job I’ve had since high school, but attribute my professionalism to Nordstrom, my employer and mentor for 10 years. Makeup and beauty is my passion, and I like to share it with the world.
