Meet Our Team
Daniella (Owner/Lead Makeup Artist)
After obtaining my bachelors degree from California State University Fullerton, I decided it was time to truly pursue my passion for Makeup Artistry. I graduated from the Couture Academy of Modern Makeup Artistry in 2010, specializing in T.V, Print and Airbrush makeup. While working at photo shoots, film sets and salons, it wasn’t until my own wedding day that I realized I wanted to focus on the Bridal industry. Since starting Smoky Eyes Artistry in 2011, I have had the pleasure of working with over 200 brides and feel honored to have been a part of their special day. I am very proud of my team of stylists. We have a perfect 5 star rating on all of our review forums and have won The Knot and Wedding Wire’s Couples Choice Award for Southern California’s Best Hair and Makeup Team 2 years in a row. Every bride dreams about what she’ll look like on her wedding day and it is our goal to turn that dream into reality.
Brittany (Lead Makeup/Hair Stylist)
After obtaining a Merchandising Management degree at Oregon State University I pursued my dream of becoming a personal stylist by attending the Champion Institute of Cosmetology and completing the CAMMUA Makeup Academy to become a qualified makeup artist. Through my training, passion, and experience I am sure to make your special day a memorable and beautiful one!
Creating the perfect look for my client is more than completing a job. It’s about the experience, the vision, the beauty and the love I have for the process. I constantly strive for perfection and achieve the highest possible results based upon my training and experience. There is beauty in everyone, and it is my goal to highlight that beauty in each person I work with so they achieve their personal best. I execute my client’s vision and often surpass their expectations.
Kathleen (Lead Makeup/ Hair Stylist)
I graduated from Golden West College cosmetology school in 2008. From there, I started working in a full service salon doing haircuts, color and styling. I have been with Smoky Eyes Artistry since 2011, and I enjoy making clients beautiful on their wedding day or special event. Makeup to me is like art on a canvas. I love seeing the joy on my client’s faces when I use my knowledge and skills to create a glamorous look for them.
Andria (Lead Hairstylist)
I have been in the hair industry for over 15 years and branched off as a wedding/event stylist about 4 years ago when my passion turned to the artistic world of updos and special event styles. From doing models for photoshoots, engagement photos, live events, weddings and special occasions, there is always one thing in common, making women feel beautiful. I continue to further my education and knowledge on bettering my skills, and providing the most up to date hairstyles. I love taking a photo a client gives me and recreating the look on them while tweaking it to best suit their needs. I look forward to making my clients look and feel beautiful.
Valerie (Lead Makeup/Hairstylist)
Developing a deep passion for makeup at a young age, I traded my books for brushes and ventured out as a raw artist to become a professional. With certifications from TNT Agency and the famous M.U.D (Makeup Designory Burbank) I have advanced my skills acquiring the art of Airbrushing, Hair Styling, Character and Special FX makeup. Now with over 8 years of immense experience working with a diverse media clientele and countless faces in TV/Film, Bridal, Editoral and Print, I feel that I have mastered my skills in beauty and look forward to utilizing them on my new clients.
