I cannot say enough good things about Dina! I had a bad experience with another make up artist and Dina was an absolute pleasure to deal with and really saved me, She was happy to spend a ton of time with me at my trial and took all of my comments to heart and gave me exactly what I wanted I felt completely confident on the day of my wedding and knew she would do a phenomenal job and I was totally right. Dina made me look like myself, just a better version. She also did an amazing job with my 11 year old daughter and made her feel special, but age appropriate. Next time I have a special night out, I know who I am gong to!

Dina did my makeup for myself and my sister for my wedding. Absolutely stupendous job. My husband and I did the first look before the ceremony and the first thing he said was "you look so pretty". My $ well spent with those words. Thank you Dina for making us look beautiful! And airbrush makeup, do it. Lasted all day, I would do it again in a heartbeat.

After bad experiences with several hair and makeup artists, Dina was recommended to me by an old friend. From the first email, I knew she was the one!

She did my makeup and the makeup for my 4 bridesmaids, my mom, and my grandmother. Everyone looked beautiful.

Not only is Dina a fantastic makeup artist, she's so much fun to be around. Instead of spending the morning of my wedding worrying or being nervous, we laughed the whole time.

Dina knows exactly what to do to bring out your best features. Book her!! She's amazing!!!

I have worked with Dina before for a wedding I was in and when I got engaged, there was no question... I wanted her for my wedding.

Dina did a BEAUTIFUL job. I could not be happier. My girls looked amazing and the makeup lasted all day!

I would refer anyone who needs their makeup done for any occasion to contact Dina. She is funny, makes you feel very comfortable and does an amazing job.

The hair stylists who were hired to do the hair of the bridesmaids and guests were supposed to also provide makeup services but "forgot" to bring their makeup. Thankfully Dina was able to help by agreeing to do the makeup of my friends and family who were left with no way to have their professional makeup done. Everyone looked wonderful and I was so happy with my makeup. I would recommend Dina for any occasion in which you would need a makeup artist.

After having quite a few makeup trials, and being horrified-- I saw a friends wedding pictures, and the natural beauty of her makeup. She told me about Dina, so I immediately called Dina and booked her for our wedding. She did 6 girls makeups, and everyone looked stunning! I have never worn a lot of makeup- so I was worried. But Dina listened to me and did a beautiful job! I have never looked so pretty in my life :) And the airbrushing is amazing! Thank you so much Dina!!

Dina was fantastic. I did a bridal trial and was thrilled. She is so funny and personable and really listens to what you want. She did my makeup in the bridal suite at the wedding venue. She also did my mother and a couple of my bridesmaids. You get to keep your lipstick if you get a full makeup application! I love her and would definitely recommend her!

I can not say enough about how amazing Dina was on my wedding day! I had 9 girls getting makeup done and every girl looked beautiful! Nobody looked exactly the same! My girls are still raving about how great she was! I highly recommend Dina to any bride, bridal party or event goer that needs beautiful makeup done without looking caked on or fake! She is friendly, professional and provides an EXCELLENT service. THANK YOU DINA!

I'm already thinking about my next event where I can use her to do my makeup!

Dina was simply amazing. As a girl who doesn't wear too much make up, I was looking for a very natural look for my wedding day. It's hard to find someone in Jersey who knows what "natural" looks like... haha. Dina did exactly what I was picturing. My make up was perfect and lasted from the morning until it was time to go to bed.. and then some. She's so easy to talk to and really listens to what you want. All of my bridesmaids and my mother had their make up done by Dina as well. They all looked so beautiful I couldn't even get over it. She really made my day that much better and made us all feel beautiful. Cannot thank her enough for everything she did. What a pleasure it was to work with her. Thanks again for all you did, Dina. I hope I can use you again in the future and will certainly recommend to friends and family!! xoxo

Dina Gardner went above and beyond to make me and my girls BEAUTIFUL!!!!!! She really listened to the look I was going for and made each of the girls look right out of the 50's... dramatic and breathtakingly beautiful. Dina stayed to make sure that I got a touch up after pictures and even re-did lipstick on all of my girls too! She also gave each of the girls lipstick so that they could re-apply throughout the night! She is a truly gifted make-up artist who really puts you at ease on your special day. She was calm and relaxed, even when my nervous mom was asking her a million questions! Dina will make every bride feel extra beautiful and she will transform your bridal party into a unified group of stunning women. EVERY Bride should hire Dina!!!!!

Dina was amazing! She was professional, personable, and approachable. I found her through another wedding. I asked the bride in August 2011 after the wedding who did her make-up. From the moment I contacted Dina, it was an easy process. I would recommend her to every bride!!

Dina is absolutely amazing! She has an energy to her that as soon as you sit down to get your make up down its like a calmness. I am not kidding before I had my makeup done, I had my hair done and was beginning to stress out a little and I just got so calm as soon as the make up began, she is awesome! My veil fell out during make up and Dina stayed long after I was done to help put my veil in again!! She is amazing and my make up came out perfectly, I would highly recommend her to anyone who is getting married or for anyone who wants a night out and look amazing!! Thanks Dina!!

Dina did an amazing job on not only my make up but my Mother's and 2 girls. My oldest is 15 and Dina made her look like she was her age not older. My other daughter is 11 and she put just enough make up on so she would look great in pictures. She even put eye lashes on my Mother which is a very tough job. She made her feel beautiful. I looked absolutly amazing. Normally I only wear mascara and blush. Dina didn't over due my makeup but it was enough to enhance the natural side of me. My fiance said I was breath taking when he met me at the alter. Dina played a big part in that. I would highly recommend her for any occasion you maybe having. She listens to what you like and dislike. and will make you feel wonderful.

Where do I even begin?

Dina is amazing! I am not only referring to her work as a make up artist but as an all around professional. Our wedding consisted of two brides, which in and of itself is a task. But from the moment we met Dina at her home for our trial we knew she was "the one". She was so welcoming and immediately made us feel comfortable. Our make up was flawless, and that was just the trial. We had such a good time with her that by the time we left I considered her a friend. During the months following she stayed in constant contact with me. And for a control freak like me that was so calming.
The day of the wedding she arrived early and kept the atmosphere in the room calm and so much fun! She had us laughing for hours! If I thought my make up was amazing the day of the trial, the make up she did the day of the wedding was STUNNING. I was receiving compliments on my make up all night long and still now on the pictures.

Not only did she make us beautiful for our special day but she helped my mom figure out how to lace up my dress and even set the hotel room up so the photographer would have amazing pictures of the dress, shoes, jewelry etc. She was a one stop Bridal Goddess

! I would recommend Dina to ANYONE and EVERYONE! I am now looking for excuses to have her do my make up again!

Here are my three suggestions when booking make up with Dina:

1) Be prepared to have an amazing time with her.
2) Remember that she is a professional and knows best. When she asked what I wanted I told her that I wanted her to do what she thought was best and I am so glad I did! She made me look like an A List Celebrity! If i had my choice, something tells me I would have walked out with bright pink eyeshadow. ;)
3)Count yourself lucky when you book her. She is SIMPLY the best and I know people are hunting her down to get her to do their make up!


Two Thumbs WAY Up!

Thank you Dina!! :)

I cannot say enough good things about Dina and her work. She is a true professional and a great person besides. On such a stress-filled and chaotic day, Dina's humor, fun personality and true professionalism were a joy to have in the room with everyone getting ready.

Dina truly went above and beyond the call of duty. Not only was my make-up, my partner's make-up, my mother's make-up and my mother-in-law's make-up completely flawless but Dina (when someone wasn't sitting in her chair) set-up my dress, shoes, jewelry etc. for the photographer to save time so that none of us had to worry about running late.

On a day when there are a million details running through your mind, I never once had to think or worry about Dina. I completely trusted her to have free reign over my make-up and i have never felt more confident and beautiful as when i looked in the mirror after she was done. I truly appreciate the job title "make-up ARTIST" now!

Dina also generously offered to stay throughout my cocktail hour and give touch-ups to make sure I wasn't tear-streaked for the reception.

I am seriously considering having a cape made for her, because the woman is a super-hero!

I would, without hesitation, recommend her to anyone and hope to have the opportunity to use her services in the near future!

Dina's work was absolutely flawless! She made me, my bridesmaids and my mother look wonderful on my wedding day. I loved working with her because she's personable and very professional. I would highly recommend the airbrush to anyone who wants their makeup to last from day to night. I've tried many different makeup artists over the years and Dina by far is the best around! I would definitely recommend her services to any bride!

I hired Dina to do my make-up and my stepdaughters make-up for my wedding day! She did such wonderful job! She is kind and calm (which is what every bride needs on their wedding day)! My husband wants to hire her everyday to do my make-up he loved it so much and I dont think my stepdaughter wanted to take it off. It was perfect - she is truly amazing and talented! I will always use Dina in the future and will recommend her to everyone I know!
Thank you,

There are almost not even words for how fantastic Dina is. I first saw her work on the bride and bridesmaids at a friend's wedding. When soon after I was planning my wedding, I knew she was who I wanted for my makeup. From the first contact to the end result, she was professional and as well as an amazing talent. I agree with the reviewer who said to let her take the lead as she is the professional - I repeatedly told her that I was putty in her hands and I trusted her recommendations. I could not have been happier with the end result! I felt like a princess and my photos were just amazing, in large part due to Dina's incredible work! I have since recommended her to anyone and everyone who would listen - and as a result she recently did the makeup for a wedding I was just in and the results were also amazing! She is the best!!

Dina was extremely helpful and knows what looks best on you. She made me feel beautiful and gorgeous on my wedding day. My mom and bridesmaids also had their make-up done by Dina and they couldn't have been happier. She really knows how to bring out your best features without looking "over done" or caked on makeup. If I could have my own daily personal make-up artist, it would be Dina!

I couldn't have asked for a better makeup artist than Dina Gardner. I am very picky when it comes to someone doing my makeup for me, so I was a bit nervous about having it done professionally the day of my wedding. I like my make up to be natural looking and every time I had gotten it done previously (by Mac, Bobbi Brown, etc.), it was always too much! Dina listened to everything I wanted and my makeup came out exactly the way I wanted it! Not only is she great at doing makeup, but she is a wonderful person as well. She made myself and my entire bridal party feel at ease; I felt like I had known her for years. I would recommend her highly to anyone needing their makeup done!

It was pure luck that helped me find Dina when I Googled "Air Brush Make Up Spring Lake, NJ". I emailed her, and let her know that: 1) My wedding was in a little over a month; 2) I had extremely sensitive skin, and was worried about ending up in the hospital with hives. Luckily, she was able to accommodate me for my date. Prior to my trial with her, she asked me a number of questions about what type of make up had caused issues in the past, etc. Not only did she do a beautiful job at the trial, but it was such a natural look, which is what I wanted. She really listened to what I had to say, and had lots of great suggestions. She even emailed me after the trial to make sure that I didn't have a bad reaction, and to tell me that she saw a lipstick color that was going to be perfect for me.

Besides being a talented professional, she had the ability to totally put me at ease. At the trial and my wedding day, she had us laughing the whole time. It was like hanging out with an old friend while she was doing my make up, and I didn't stress out one bit!

The end result was that I looked and felt beautiful, thanks to Dina! And, just to give you an idea of the kind of person she is, she emailed me after the wedding to make sure that I didn't have a reaction to the make up. That really impressed me! This was just a wonderful overall experience, and I would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat.
