Nothing could be lovelier than the sight of a happy bride on her wedding day. Her flawless face that beams with glee is enough to make her groom feel that he's the luckiest man alive.
Diana Santos gifts brides with remarkable makeovers on their big day. With her precise makeup application and contouring techniques, her brides will look gorgeous and photo-ready as they walk down the aisle.
According Diana, her favorite look for brides is the no-makeup look. She relays, "Natural beauty always comes first. Classic beauty never goes out of style."
Before she works on a bride, Diana first analyzes the bride's facial features. By doing so, she learns which details to highlight or downplay, and which type of makeup will go well with her skin type. Her final work is not only aesthetically appealing, but long-lasting as well. She makes sure that her brides still look stunningly beautiful as the event wears on.
Diana definitely knows a lot about beauty--even before she held a makeup brush, Diana made a name for herself as a professional model. She shares, "I've worked with people in the fashion industry such as photographers, designers, and seasoned makeup artists. Denise Go's work, for one, had inspired me to pursue makeup artistry. I want to be the one who brings out the beauty in women by enhancing their looks."
Her exposure in the fashion industry paved the way for accomplishing her dream. It made her realize that she didn't just want to be in front of the camera, but she also wants to play an important part behind it as well.
To keep abreast with the newest techniques and products, Diana continues to study and hone her skills through constantly practicing and attending lectures. She adds, "Before the year ends, I'm planning to attend a short-course training abroad to keep myself updated on the latest trends in airbrush makeup application and hairstyling."
Diana's unrelenting thirst for success is what makes her one to watch for in the bridal scene.
