LaDonna Stein has been exploring beauty in the usual and most unusual places since 1995. Every project is approached with a deep passion for delivering the client’s vision while bringing her unique style to the table. Her extensive education and background in the history of art, fashion, and pop culture allows her to recognize the elements of a concept and execute quickly and with creative abandon.

LaDonna’s journey began in Amarillo, TX with the Diane Dick Agency and has led her all over the world as she chases the pursuit of beauty. She later studied art history and theatrical makeup at the University of North Texas while working as an advanced artist-in-residence for MAC Cosmetics. Her continuous desire to create and learn has brought opportunities that can be seen on stage, screen and print around the world.

When not making magic for her commercial and bridal clients, LaDonna can be found educating makeup artists and helping women see their most powerful selves in one of Dallas’ most popular boudoir studios. She and her husband have chosen Arkansas to make their home and she splits her time in Dallas, TX and Northwest Arkansas.
