Hi I’m Dori!

Organic Headshots

Commander of the makeup brush and carrier of more lip stick and glosses than one person should be allowed to carry with them (just ask to see my zip lock bag).  I'm a freelance makeup artist living just outside of Chicago, but, I'm happy to travel anywhere you are!

Let's get deep about me for a second, I’m obsessed with iced coffee and the ocean, lipstick... ANYTHING coconut, making people feel their most beautiful, "The Bachelor", and a really great cocktail...

I've been playing with makeup and beauty products for as long as I can remember. It’s been my greatest love and has remained my constant. I can remember being a little girl and sneaking into the bathroom to play in my mom's makeup bag. I was also so obsessed with my grandma's Chanel Powder. To this day, that scent brings me back to my childhood (I actually love it so much, I found and bought the exact vintage one she had, so I could keep it forever).

Makeup gives us the ability to transform, not only features but emotions too, all while creating self confidence! That's why I love makeup. Because of that love, I moved to Los Angeles 12 years ago to follow my passion and became a certified, professional makeup artist (I am forever indebted to Makeup Designory for the education I have been given, and the relationships I made). I’ve been working in bridal, theater, photography, film and fashion since then.

I love being the one that gets to bring out the beauty in every face I am lucky enough to play with. I work with each client to create looks that reflect them and their personal styles.

Thank you for visiting my little piece of the universe!

Lets get started!
