My name is Dina Philippeos, I have a degree in Makeup for Media and Creative Arts from Sheridan College. I am a young makeup artist who loves, and is passionate about her work.
Why makeup? I am, and like to be creative. I work hard and strive for perfection which makes me valuable to my Employers, co-workers and clients. I will not give up on a project until it is perfect because I strongly believe that my work is a true reflection of my character. I have a passion in making people feel good, it makes me feel good. When I am doing somebody’s makeup, I enjoy giving tips and/or advice on how they can enhance their best features.
As I am working, I strive to really become a part of my work. Whether I have to research, find references, or draw my client’s desires, I am always fully committed. At times, my own visions motivate me, and I do whatever it takes to fulfill them. I am always on top of the new and upcoming trends. Being current and up to date on all new trends is very important in the beauty industry. I love to play around with different looks, especially from past decades; old Hollywood really interests me.
Give me any project from a historical period until the 1980s and I will recreate it with ease. I am one of few makeup artists that have a background doing hair, but that is something unique I bring to the table. I spent some time in hair school, I focused my education in hair styling, and can do anything aside from cutting. I have also received my certificate in waxing (body and facial) and a certificate in doing manicuring.
Contact me for your wedding, grad, prom, special events, or even a tutorial! I will be more than glad to do it!
