About Me
Welcome! Thank you for taking the time to explore my website, showing interest in what I do, and sharing in my passion for makeup artistry. I am Darcie, an esthetician makeup artist in Lansing, Michigan.  I successfully established Darcie L Makeup in 2011, specializing in on-location airbrush makeup for weddings, fashion, and other special occasions.  I am a very passionate person in general and it is certainly no different in my professional life. I take my craft very seriously but have plenty of fun in the process. I pride myself on providing an excellent customer service experience to my clients. My career goal is to make Darcie L Makeup synonymous with beauty in Michigan's capital area through enhancing my clients' unique, natural beauty and delivering to all the local women that coveted feeling of confidence we so often crave. 
I give my all to my clients, genuinely listen to the vision they have in mind for their special occasion, and do everything I can to bring their concept to life. I love what I do and it is because of you, my clients, that I get to do it. I appreciate the joy you bring to my day, every day. My goal is to return the favor, pay forward the joy, and deliver to you an exceptional experience from beginning to end. 
It would be a pleasure to work with you and be part of your special moment, even if just a brief escape from the day-to-day monotony that comes with being an adult. Please see my contact page to connect with me, I hope to hear from you soon!
