Meet Denise!

….”I love helping people FEEL like a million bucks on the inside!”

For over Ten years Denise Nedev’s talents have been dedicated to working as a highly skilled makeup artist in the Greater Pittsburgh area.

Denise has always had a passion for helping others feel good about themselves. As a child she could often be seen playing in her mother’s makeup and giving her friends makeovers. The passion only grew bigger as she got older:I love it that the personal attention I give to my clients improves their mood and sometimes their self-confidence.”

She graduated college with aspirations of being a teacher. However, she continued to do makeup and skincare as a passion. Denise began her journey at Boscov’s Department Stores as a beauty advisor for Estée Lauder. Over her 9 years of experience she has been in many different roles in the cosmetic industry. She was a featured regional artist for Estée Lauder, a Business Manager in cosmetics at Nordstrom, Account Coordinator for Estée Lauder at Macy’s, and a Product Area Specialist for Kate Somerville. Denise has worked and trained with some of the worlds greatest artist’s including Derek Miller (Global Artist for Estée Lauder) and Tammy Slider (makeup artist to celebrities).

It has taken a lot of work, prayers & earning her dues, but Denise is a hard worker & has learned everything just by DOING. She learned how to blend, shade, manipulate products, color theory…everything needed to do beautiful makeup work!”

It is also her believe that good makeup starts with good skincare. This is why she continued her road to success by becoming a licensed esthetician. She is highly passionate about skincare and the science behind it. The almost immediate results, achieved from basic care for the skin or a facial are what made her excited and curious about the rest- treatments, chemical peels, body wraps, etc.

Over the years Denise has worked with many prestige lines such as Estee Lauder, Dior and Kate Somerville to name a few. She takes pride in being knowledgeable about all the products she uses. “I always ask myself these key questions:

Who makes this product?
Who can use this product?
What is in this product?
Why does this product work?
When do I use this product?”

When not at work, Denise is a wife & mom. After getting home from a long day, she clocks in as “mom” & her other life kicks in…cooking, taking care of the family, errands with children in the back seat, REAL LIFE! Denise is also a kind and compassionate person & is very down to earth. “I love connecting with the person in my chair. I love sharing stories, laughing, etc. Very often makeup goes beyond making someone beautiful on the outside, I love helping people FEEL like a million bucks on the inside!”

With her professional background in makeup glamour and model styling both in personal appearance as well as production and print, Denise has been taking all that experience into the Greater Pittsburgh Area wedding industry. Denise loves her occupation and is looking forward to a long and successful career…one face at a time!
