Dina Gardner Makeup Art


I have over 20 years of experience in the beauty industry as a freelance makeup artist with many major cosmetic companies such as MAC, Prescriptives, Clinique, Lancome, Sephora and Estee Lauder.  I am a graduate of Christine Valmy Skin Care Institute in NYC and I am licensed in New York State to practice esthetics.

I offer professional makeup services for all of your special occasions. As a Professional Makeup Artist my goal is to provide you with the best service for your special day.  I provide services throughout most of New Jersey and Staten Island.

I offer a wide range of make up services, please see my services page

Every woman I have ever talked to has had a bad experience with makeup-whether your mother convinced you to let her do your makeup for the prom or the "makeup artist" at the “XYZ Cosmetics” counter in the department store ambushed you into a makeover.

I remember mine--I was 19 and one of the ladies at one of the better known cosmetic counters convinced me to “fill in my eyebrows….a little.”  I was wary, but I let her do it.  Five minutes later she stood back and admired her work as she proudly handed me the mirror.  I was shocked and horrified to see Bert from Sesame Street staring back at me.

When I started doing makeup professionally I made a promise to myself to never let anyone leave my chair feeling like they needed to make a beeline to the nearest sink to get it all off.  I make sure that before the brush touches your face that I know exactly what you want.  I know because I listen to you;  (Radical idea, I know) and if there is something that you want to change, I am happy to do it because it’s your face and your day; you know what you are comfortable with.  At the end of the day it doesn’t matter how great I thought you looked-you had to feel great about it. 

My goal is to make you feel lovely, and happy you decided to get your makeup done.  So….I’ve gone on and on, but I hope you’ve gotten a feel for what’s important to me. I look forward to working with you.

Best Regards,

Dina Gardner
