Meet Ioana!

Professional Makeup Artist

Why do you love makeup?
I have always wanted to make people look and feel good about themselves and makeup has been such a positive way for me to do that. I have always felt that makeup should be used as a tool to highlight your features and enhance your natural beauty. One of my favorite and most rewarding things about being a makeup artist is the ability to give people that confidence boost and make them feel beautiful and comfortable in their own skin. Makeup isn't supposed to be about masking who you are but about bringing out your beautiful features! 

What is your background in the beauty industry?
I am self taught makeup artist. Over the past 7 years I have gained experience working as an MUA for Gallery of Hair Salon  and for MAC Cosmetics. Working for MAC was an incredible experience that really helped me develop and fine tune my skills and grow as an artist! Currently, I specialize in bridal makeup and am so happy to be a part of the Deco Adamo team! 

What is your favorite part about working with brides?
Im a hopeless romantic! I love everything about weddings! My absolute favorite part is actually the trial because I can get to know the bride and her story one on one. I sincerely care for each and everyone of my brides and want them to be 100% happy with my work. And I do have to say that I love getting pictures and notes from my brides after the wedding letting me know how much they loved the way they felt and looked! That's the icing on the cake!

What makes you stand out?
This might seem like something relatively simple but I think it makes all the difference in the world. I LISTEN! My work stands out because I listen to what my clients want.  I feel like that's one of the most important things you can do. It's all about the bride and making her look and feel amazing for her big day!!
