This week we have an interview with the talented makeup artist Dianna Quagenti. Dianna is located in Boston and has been an active member of the Professional Makeup Artist Industry for over 8 years. Her background in fashion design and fine art combine and result in fabulous makeup that brings out the natural beauty in all of her clients, making them look and feel their best.
How long have you been in business?
What inspired you to start your business?
I always knew I wanted to do something creative. I got my degree in Fashion & Fine Art and I always had a love for makeup. It evolved from there. For me, makeup artistry is the perfect blend of fashion and fine art.
What makes your business unique?
I am a full time, professional makeup artist that also provides service to Brides and their Bridal Parties. Because of this, I am always on top of the current trends, techniques, and products. It allows me to provide the best quality makeup application to my clients. I also offer airbrush makeup, which is amazing for Brides!
Is there a particular niche you target?
Not necessarily, just anyone who wants to look fabulous!
What is your company’s philosophy when working with wedding couples?
I want all of my Brides to feel their absolute best on their wedding day. Not only do I make sure they get the best makeup application, but, also soothing and providing a relaxing experience. The Bride never has to worry about anything. I’m punctual, professional, and pleasant to work with!
Tell us why you think your business is successful.
I believe in love. This attitude definitely translates into my work when working with Brides. Besides my dedication to my craft and constant attention to providing the best service, I care about their day; the details, and having her makeup be the icing on the cake. I make sure everything works together beautifully, and, most importantly – no one ever gets up from my chair unless they are 100% happy.
How do you help couples customize their weddings?
I have the Bride show me all the details of her day. The dress, the headpiece, the hairstyle, the colors, the venue, etc. This helps me to create something not only that she will love, but, that will also fit in to the rest of the feel of her day.
At what point in the planning process do you typically work with couples?
Typically after all of the large vendors are booked, although, since my services are in such high demand, I do book up about 1 year in advance.
Is there anything else you’d like to share about your business?
I use top quality professional products to ensure beautiful, long lasting results. I have trained with some of the top artists in the world and thus offer an unparalleled level of skill in my area.
