A Chat with Dominique Janis Artistry
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Versatility is one of the most important qualities a makeup artist should possess. With roots in the theatre, and experience in film, t.v., print, and runway, my career has made me more multifaceted than your average makeup artist. I've worked with every skin tone, skin type, and in every style.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
A lot of people think that makeup is used to cover flaws and imperfections. I, on the other hand, use it as a tool to accentuate the beauty that EVERY person possesses. I became a makeup artist because I wanted to show every client how beautiful they truly are.
What do you love most about your job?
Teaching. Hands down. During the application, I give my client a hand held mirror if they're curious about any of my techniques. It's so fun to show a person how to amp up their natural features. I love when my clients leave finding new, unique things they love about their face!
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
Though always positive, every client's feedback is different. My favorite line to hear is "I refuse to do my own makeup now"!
