Wielding her line of DKM Cosmetics, which earned recent press from Examiner.com, Dina Racciatti and her artistic team beautify clients with makeovers and impart cosmetic secrets during makeup lessons. Clients relax in front of mirrored vanities flanked by exposed brick walls during the makeover, as makeup artists deftly paint long-lasting color onto visages, accenting features with a selection of DKM’s more than 100 eye shadows, dozens of blushes, and single blowtorch. Lessons couple take-home tips with a complete makeover, as experts discuss color palates before delving into the cosmetic lore of foundation, contouring and bronzing, and color placement. Shadow, liner, and brow shaping tricks turn eyes smoky and lip liner defines puckers’ contour better than a haphazardly gulped glass of fruit punch. Following both the lesson and makeover, clients can evict outdated products from makeup bags to clear room for a new stash, which includes a powder or custom-blended liquid foundation with a brush, lip gloss, and lip liner.
Dina’s Kiss and Makeup
Sitting in her first makeup class on her 18th birthday, Dina's Kiss and Makeup owner Dina Racciatti suddenly knew she wanted to be a professional makeup artist. Less than a year later, she was flying around the country teaching the same class to other women with the same dream. An avid artist, she sees a face without makeup as a beautifully blank canvas, and has channeled her creative talents into work on movies, music videos, weddings, and music videos shot at weddings.
Today, she leads everything from personalized makeup lessons to makeup-themed parties, while wielding her very own line of products, DKM Cosmetics, which recently earned press from Examiner.com. Inside her contemporary makeup boutique, mirrored vanities flanked by exposed brick walls reveal row upon row of DKM’s more than 100 eye shadows, dozens of blushes, and custom-blended foundations. Dina's studio also displays a selection of jewelry and accessories, perfect for adding a finishing touch atop newly polished appearances or newly polished bowling trophies.
