About Me

I have always had a love for the beauty industry from a very young age. I graduated cosmetology school in 2005 and my love for beauty continued to grow. I got started in the wedding industry in 2014 while living in Pittsburgh, PA. After spending three years in Pittsburgh doing hair and makeup for weddings and special events, I was able to apply my passion for the beauty industry by helping open the first stand-alone store of MAC cosmetics in Utah. This venture allowed me to bring high quality beauty products and professional expertise to the local community with the commitment to enhancing natural beauty. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband and three boys. We enjoy getting away on the weekends to go camping, dirt biking, and hanging out with each other to create new and unforgettable memories.

The Beauty Philosophy

At Beauty by Darlene, my philosophy is simple: beauty is a celebration of individuality, a way to honor our inner and outer selves. It’s not about transforming into someone else but about accentuating the unique beauty that each person possesses. This belief drives everything I do, from carefully selecting high-quality products to crafting personalized looks that reflect each client’s personality and desires.

"Darlene’s talent to take makeup across ages and ethnicities was noted. Despite the heat of yesterday the makeup held up and we all received so many complements on it. Her ability to bring calming and good vibes was amazing!"


"Darlene made me look so pretty on my wedding day. I loved my hair and makeup she did such a wonderful job. All the bridesmaids look beautiful too. She also went out of her way to help calm my nerves while she was getting me ready. I loved working with her and would recommend her to anyone. "


"Darelene is absolutely the best makeup artist! Sha has an incredible talent and an eye for exactly what you need. She has a love for the job and she truly cares about you as a client. We use her for all of my daughter’s cheerleading photos and events and she always looks absolutely stunning and gets so many compliments. Darlene is always professional, easy to communicate with, and fun to be around. I highly recommend her and wont use anyone else!"


"I have used Darlene for multiple family photos and special events. She is amazing and makes me feel absolutely beautiful. Darlene does exactly what I want. I have loved working with her and recommend her to everyone I know!"
