LaDonna Stein Makeup and Hair Artist

I am LaDonna Stein, a Texas based Bridal Makeup and Hair artist specializing in Vintage and Pin up, Gothic, and Steampunk as well as any style your creative heart can dream up! I am meticulous, dependable, punctual, and passionate about what I do and I will not disappoint. My approach to bridal makeup is focused not only on beauty, but longevity.

My application methods and products have been proven to last for at least 16 hours, even days in some cases. I had a bride fly to Paris after her wedding for a photo shoot immediately after they arrived and everything was still photo ready! That was over 24 hours after application. My bridal makeup is water resistant and smudge proof and will last through sweat, tears, hugs, and kisses.

For my brides, I prefer to use Airbrush Foundation and Blush, which looks very natural and flawless and feels very comfortable. I have a variety of brands and formulas to choose from, depending on the finish desired. It works great for guys too, because a light application is almost imperceptible. I also prefer individual lashes for bridal parties instead of strip lashes. Individual lashes are infinitely more comfortable and they won't go anywhere with your permission, unlike strip lashes which can be uncomfortable and tend to come unhinged on the inside if there are any tears involved. They also can last for days. I am a goth girl at heart but I love creating vintage hairstyles.

I have been the staff hair and makeup artist at Dallas Pinup Shop and Photography Studio for 5 years and been in the industry for 20 years. I can create any pinup look from the largest rockabilly liberty rolls to a sleek Dita wave. Check out my Instagram for a daily update on my creations.

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

I would love to cater to your personal style, even if it's a unique mix of different things! I don't believe in a "right" or "wrong" way to wear makeup and hair. It's all about how you want to look, and I am your tool to achieve that look! I also believe that preparing the bride for her wedding is a sacred act, and I love being a part of this process.

"LaDonna Stein is one of the best makeup artists I have ever worked with. She not only is intuitive to your needs but also makes you feel comfortable and beautiful! I have never worked with someone so willing to try anything but also willing to give you her opinion." – Megan E.
