Dylan Michael Cosmetics is named for my children, Dylan Matthew and Brandon Michael. One year ago Dylan lost his battle with FD (familial dysautonomia), a devastating genetic disease. He was 19 years old. In my continuing effort to raise awareness about the prevention of this and other rare genetic diseases, Dylan Michael Cosmetics donates a portion of all net proceeds to the Dylan Singer Education Fund at the Victor Center at Einstein Healthcare and to PIXIE DUST WISHES – A nonprofit dedicated to sending individuals with disabilities and their families to the magical world of Disney.
I believe that the way a woman wears her makeup should be a direct reflection of her personality…a collaborative relationship between artist and bride- one that matches my ability to transform and create to a bride’s unique & individual style. I also love that for a brief moment, I am able to become part of a bride’s family and share in one of the most joyous time in their lives.
I am blessed to continue to be surrounded by an amazing team of artists. Each one brings their unique style and love of their “work” to the table. As a team we have been presented for NINE consecutive years with Wedding Wire’s Couples Choice Award, The Knot Best of Weddings. Five years ago we were introduced into The Knot Hall of Fame.
Truth: “love what you do and you’ll never work a day in your life”
I was “bitten” by the “makeup bug” as a little girl hitting the stage for dance recitals. Initially, I learned the “basics” from a local modeling agency. As theater major in college, I was easily the makeup artist for all of our shows.
I have been blessed with working with many great mentors over these last 17 years. I love collaborating with “my brides” so that they feel the most special and beautiful on such a life-changing day. After all, what’s not to love about sparkles, lipstick and “girl talk”?
My motto: may your foundation match your neck, concealer be creaseless and winged eyeliner sharp enough to kill
