I had a great time working with Dawn, she is one of the best makeup artists around and her work is flawless. I am pleased to say I will work with her again. She was a delight to work with and was very professional.
I had the pleasure of recently working with Dawn on a photo shoot that involved a lot of makeup and special effect work. It was a lot of work for one person, but she got it done and was patient and sweet the whole time. The end result was absolutely stunning. I am so impressed by her, any time someone asks me if I know a makeup artist I immediately refer them to her. Dawn was very professional and worked efficiently, getting things done in a timely fashion. She is very creative and her special effects work looks legitimate and very realistic. It was an awesome experience to work with her, she is very inspirational to me and I hope to get with her again soon!
Working with Dawn is always amazing. Not only is it a blast to be in her chair, but she’s super talented! No matter the job, she always delivers. A true artist in every sense of the word.
As a model and actress I have worked with many Makeup and hair artist. However, Dawn not only did an amazing job on my makeup and hair for my photo shoot, but I enjoyed her company as well. She is amazingly talented and highly motivated in her profession. I was so impressed I referred her two Producers for MUA.
I have had the pleasure of working with Dawn for several photo shoots now and I think she is great. She is so talented! She is pleasant and professional and really knows how to make you look beautiful. Don’t think beauty is all she can do though. I have been present to see her transform people into numerous horror, and movie characters.. Basically, if you need makeup for any event, Dawn is your girl!

I’ve worked with Dawn on many different occasions over the last year and her talent always amazes me. She not only can make people simply gorgeous and photo shoot perfect, but she can also do special effects makeup which will blow your mind. She’s always punctual, works well with others, is very knowledgeable in her craft, and works very well under pressure. I’ve always been very pleased with Dawns work and would definitely hire her for any occasion or event in the future……

Dawn and I went to makeup school together and since then have had the chance to work together on many projects such as film, photoshoots and weddings. I love working with Dawn as I can count on her to do a great job with clients! She is a true artist not just with makeup but also tattoos, paintings and drawings. I would recommend her services to anyone

I worked with Dawn on my “Biker Beauties” photo-shoot, and we had a blast! Not only is she an amazing make-up artist, but she also helped me with my wardrobe styling. She is a complete professional, and very personable. Dawn kept me laughing, and made everyone feel at ease. She was a treat to work with, and I look forward to the day we get to work together again.

I am so honored to have had the creative support of Dawn Harlan since day one of Pin Up America, Inc. From her makeup skills on all 12 models of our pinup calendar, our first ever magazine cover, and now our most recent issue of Pin Up America Magazine where her talent is featured in two different articles…Dawn has definitely set the bar with her amazing creativity and professionalism! I am so proud to now have Dawn on board as an official writer for the Magazine. It goes to show that she rocks out anything and everything she puts her mind to, going over and above all expectations!

Where do i start…I first met Dawn in 2009 at a group shoot in Ybor. It was the first shoot I had done where the Makeup was provided & I was sooo excited. I was not, however, prepared by the dramatic difference it would make in the images. Dawn did both my hair & makeup, and to this day, those images are some of my favorite I have ever taken. We have worked together on several shoots since and I have loved every minute of it. She did my makeup for the cover shoot for the first edition of Pinup America magazine, the results were stellar. I had no idea i could look like a china doll with perfect skin, but she did it! Anytime I have a shoot, she is my go to girl, my favorite to work with, not only for her talent & professional attitude, but also because she is one of the most fun people in the industry. In closing, if you are looking for someone to do ANY type of makeup, pinup, horror, dramatic, wedding, ANYTHING Dawn is your girl.

If you are looking for a professional, talented and truly dedicated MUA you have found her. I have worked with Dawn on many shoots. She helped make my daughters wedding day as beautiful as it could be. Dawn is so talented in so many different areas of her trade. Pinup, horror, special effects, I dont think I have ever had the Privilege of working with such talent. Dawn is always prepared, and always on time and dependable. As always I enjoy working with Dawn and always look forward to every chance we get to work together.
Dawn was my makeup artist for a pinup theme photo shoot I did and her work was excellent! Not only was my makeup beautiful, but she was very personable and easy to work with as well, and made me feel at ease. In addition, I have some pretty noticeable scars on my skin from past acne and you couldn’t see them at all! I wish I had Dawn do my makeup every day!
Working and learning from Dawn has greatly impacted my life. She is a talented artist with imagination, creativity and most of all patience. She prepares ideas and supplies in advance and comes on set knowing exactly what she wants to do and has a timeline to meet the needs of the photographer and more importantly, the client. Learning what I have from Dawn has landed me my favorite jobs in Ohio. I look to her and her portfolio for ideas and consultations throughout projects. My only negative is that we are not in the same state where we could work together more often!Christina Siciliano
