Makeup Artist Briana Dai

Briana Dai has nine years of experience in the beauty and entertainment industry. She began as a freelance makeup artist helping newly signed models build their portfolio, doing makeup for weddings, proms, and other special events. At the age of 20, she moved to Los Angeles to work in the film industry and was able to work on numerous films with such stars as Vivica A. Fox, Michael Clark Duncan, and Janine Morris. She has also worked on many television commercials including two worldwide Nestle commercials. She has done makeup for the Emmy Awards and multiple premier events.

After about a year in the Hollywood scene, Briana began to miss the educational aspect of teaching women tricks to make them look red carpet ready. She loves making women look and feel fabulous by teaching them how to recreate their new look at home. Shortly thereafter, Briana fell in love with educating women through YouTube by featuring some of her favorite makeup looks and beauty tips. Briana thinks there is nothing more fulfilling than sharing with another woman a valuable trick that can make her feel like a million bucks, which she is now able to implement at home and feel like a million bucks every day.

She is not the type of makeup artist that “transforms” faces, but one that enhances the natural beauty that is already there. Briana now lives in Dallas, Texas where she continues to use her talent for makeup application for special occasions, instructional beauty lessons, brow shaping, film/television, photography, and other beauty needs.
