Danielle’s Story

Danielle Beyer, a freelance makeup artist and expert in custom-blended cosmetics, is the owner of  Beyer Beauty. Prior to starting her business, Danielle worked in the retail arena with a focus on personal shopping and bridal consulting. She has participated in the March on Madison Bridal Event, NYC and has attended the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC, where she has continued her education in Color Analysis, Trend Forecasting and Image Consulting.

Danielle has developed her own beauty and consulting business, Beyer Beauty. She has partnered with the internationally-known cosmetic line, Motives by Loren Ridinger. This cosmetic line is suitable for every age, every skin color and every skin condition. Danielle’s business provides advanced beauty application for all occasions, skincare recommendations, wellness solutions, tips and training. Danielle’s attention to detail, friendly disposition, and passion for making other feel beautiful is what makes her the premier makeup artist for any occasion.

L&S: Danielle, we absolutely love your work. In fact, we wish to thank you so much for making us beautiful for our recent headshots. So when did your interest in cosmetics begin?

DB: Growing up I never really wore a lot of makeup, however, I was always fascinated with color and taking really good care of my skin. My interest in starting a business with cosmetics and skincare began in 1998 and  I started to develop my own business in 2000.

L&S: Where do you get your inspiration from?

DB: The people whom I work with inspire me the most–my clients. When you can look at someone’s face, see beauty in it, and help them accentuate their best features — that’s inspiring! I also look to fashion for inspiration in creating certain makeup looks.

L&S: Wow! That’s how we feel about our clients…we want their events to be the best! That’s what inspires us as well. So in your eyes….is all makeup created equal?

DB: No. Looking past the price tag or cute packaging it comes in…if it’s of poor quality it will “sit” on your skin, almost like a mask. That’s why I often hear from many women that they don’t like the way makeup feels on their skin. If it is the right quality, you won’t feel it. It won’t sit on your skin like an extra layer. Also, the colors stay true to the color it looks like in the packaging and won’t fade on your skin.

L&S: That makes a lot of sense. How important is “photo-friendly” makeup? What doe that mean for pictures?

DB: When I think of photo-friendly makeup, I think of high-quality makeup and how it is applied to the skin. This will be the contributing factor to having your makeup last all day and night. It’s important to start with the right foundation as your base and build from there. This is essential, especially when being photographed. You want your makeup to accentuate your skin and make you look luminous. With the right combination of makeup, you will glow but not “shine”; this is photo-friendly at its best.

L&S: What tips would you give someone if they want to modify their look for a more glam finish?

DB: Try picking a feature you would like to stand out. Smokey eyes or a bold lip. Defined cheekbones with a dusting of bronzer or lush lashes by adding some false lashes. Have fun and experiment. The most important thing, though, is being comfortable in your own skin.

L&S: What types of services do you provide makeup for?

DB: Anything from weddings, special events, and photo shoot to fundraisers, fashion shows, and salon days of beauty. I also provide custom consultations for clients for their beauty, skincare and health supplementation needs. I help them find their perfect color palette and create custom formulas for foundation and minerals to exactly match their skin.

L&S: What are the 5 things most people may not know about you?

DB:

1. I’m a vegetarian but you may occasionally find me eating a meatball or hotdog.

2. I’ve always wanted to work at SeaWorld.

3. When I was five I wanted to be an actress/singer/dance/fashion designer; never wanted to be just one thing.

4. I fell off a banana boat in the Caribbean and broke my rib (I seem to have an affliction for “falling”).

5. My most favorite place on earth is the beach.

L&S: Any other tips or advice?

DB: Take good care of your skin. Your skin and health will shine through, no matter  how much makeup you have on. Be true to yourself, never settle, find what makes you happy and run with it:)

Today we are dreaming of…..Dessert Bars!

Today is Tuesday – and we are immersed in thoughts of Sweets!

This is because we’re working on a dessert bar for this weekend’s Surprise 40th Birthday Bash! Instead of having a Candy Buffet, we’ve decided to do a Dessert Bar, rich with not only candy, but a wealth of other treats too. We will have a cake/cupcake display and use this as the centerpiece for the table. Then we will add the candy, cookies, moonpies and other wonderful treats!  Whenever you’re building your dessert bar, remember that it’s important to add decorative accents to your table like a table runner, candles, flowers….anything that will enhance the theme. Stay tuned for our blog post next week as we’ll be sure to share the pics of this weekend’s creation! Below..we’re gathering inspiration from some great ideas we found online for dessert bars!

Down The Aisle!

These days a lot of the attention in planning your wedding goes into the reception. After all, your ceremony is probably only about 20-30 minutes, and the following 4-5 hours will be spent with your guests at the reception. Well hold on….that may be true, but let’s face it. If you really think about it, the ceremony is the most important and symbolic portion of your wedding day. It deserves some true attention to detail.

Don’t forget to be green! If you choose your aisle treatments wisely, you can even reuse them at your reception for your centerpieces or accents for your escort card table or at your sweetheart table.

I was browsing and found some wonderful photos of various ceremony wedding aisle treatments. Whether you will have church pews or garden chairs at your ceremony, one thing’s pretty certain….there will be an aisle for you to walk down. Make it memorable!! Here are a few ideas to ponder…the cost will vary depending on the elements you choose. Enjoy!!!
