As a California native who grew up along the coast in San Diego, the natural beauty of the area inspired me from a very young age. It was that inspiration that led me into the fine arts and ultimately into the beauty and skincare industry.
After completing my training as a professional skin care specialist in San Diego, I began my career as an esthetician and makeup artist in the summer of 2002. Very early on, I began to develop and refine the artistic philosophy that I live by today. I enjoy making people look and feel their best and my work represents this passion.
My career began as a professional makeup artist for M.A.C. cosmetics, representing one of the industries most innovative brands. My role as a M.A.C. artist was to create fresh new looks tailored to fit each client’s personal style. As an independent artist, I continue to stay on the cutting edge with the latest products and application techniques.

Ann is absolutely amazing at what she does!! I have seen her do my make up and three other friends of mine and every time I am blown away by how she can make the bride look like hte most beautiful version of themselves. Sometimes, too much make up can end up looking...um not so great....But Ann knows exactly how to make you look stunning without being too much. I am so happy I hired her for my wedding!!!Sent on 10/03/2012

Ann did the makeup for my wedding this past summer. Prior to my wedding, she came to my house to do a practice run. She had quite the challenge in front of her because not only do I not wear very much makeup, but nobody in my bridal party does either! She was so patient and she truly wanted me to feel comfortable wearing makeup. When she left my house, I was confident that I had the right person!Sent on 04/01/2013
I had 4 bridesmaids, as well as my mom, and of course myself, who all got their makeup done on the big day. She arrived at the hotel that where we were getting ready , prepared and on time. She was very professional and spent a generous amount of time with each one of us. She was very easy to work with and made us all feel very comfortable., and to top it off her work was outstanding! All of my friends, and my mom were very impressed with her work as well. I got married on the beach so we were really looking for a natural look, which she captured perfectly! I would highly recommend her services to any type of client, whether you love to experiment with makeup, or you are like me, and don't have a clue where to start! She does an amazing job!

I am a local wedding photographer that has worked with many make up artists. I have had the privilege of working with Ann DeNicolo at over a dozen weddings and she was naturally the first choice for my wife for our wedding in March this year.Sent on 06/11/2011
As the groom, I did not think much about the make up artist, but I am glad my wife did. i will never forget the way my wife looked on our wedding day and I can thank Ann for making her look gorgeous. The key to Ann's talent is her ability to make a bride look her best, without making her look like someone she is not. A bride wants to be the best version of herself on her wedding day, and Ann will help you achieve that.
I cannot recommend Ann enough for any of your make up needs!
We've worked with Ann on a couple of events and we have a couple of projects in the works. She is amazing to work with, friendly and professional. The brides couldn't have been happier. Her makeup style ranges from simple and elegant to dramatic and sexy but most importantly photographs beautifully! We look forward to working with her again.
Ann is an artist with make up! She knows how to make any bride radiate on her wedding day as they deserve to. She listens to her clients' needs and transforms you to a level beyond your expectations. I enjoy working with her and would definitely recommend her for brides, bridesmaids and any girls and/or women who need just the right touch to make them the center of attention on their wedding day!
The brides you've worked on are always glowing, that's probably because they are very happy and also because you use a great combination of MAC and Glo Minerals Cosmetics (which happen to be two of my favorite makeup brands) You've made our brides look stunning in our photos and we thank you for that.
