Hi! I’m Danielle of Fabulous by Danielle.
I am a creative professional makeup artist.
I’ve been an art-lover and –doer since jumping in puddles and making mud pies as a toddler, and excitedly anticipating art day on Fridays in elementary school.
Eventually I grew up and chose to study painting and photography at Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia.
(At art school, I learned skills like color theory, composition, material use and problem solving. Little did I know that they would be invaluable to my makeup artistry practice!)
You’ll never guess what my first summer job was: face painting at Dutch Wonderland, a children’s theme park in the area!
This was no ordinary cheek painting – each day I got the chance to transform girls, boys, men and women into princesses, tigers, monsters, and masquerade-goers. The transformative power of makeup had a huge impact on me.
I have been a licensed cosmetologist since early 2015. I decided to pursue a career in the beauty industry because transforming a man or woman’s appearance can give them new confidence, just as painting a boy or girl’s face can make them feel extra-special.
I love building relationships with all of my clients and showing them how beautiful they are and can be. I believe that everyone is a work of art, created intentionally and carefully by a Greater Power.
I have chosen the art of makeup to emphasize this truth.
