Meet Danielle Rochon
Danielle Rochon is a Chicago-based professional makeup artist working in TV/Film (Local IATSE Union 476 ) and bridal makeup. Danielle’s signature style of clean, timeless, and beautiful photo-ready makeup has earned her an admirable bridal following, especially among brides of color looking for a luxurious bridal experience. When Danielle entered the Chicago bridal market as a makeup artist, she noticed there was a lack of resources catering to the upscale bride of color. Images of clean, polished, magazine-worthy brides of color were few and far between. Danielle wanted to change that so she focused on creating "clean and beautiful photo-ready" makeup. She used her customer service experience working for MAC Cosmetics and the invaluable makeup education from teachers such as Mali Thomas (King Mali Magic), Mario Dedivanovic, Renny Vasquez, Malika James, Kai Pritchard, Tiyana Robinson and Alexandra Butler to take her to the next level. With over 11 years of experience, Danielle has helped hundreds of brides feel absolutely beautiful and amazing on the most important day of their lives.
Danielle takes her to time to get to know her clients likes, dislikes, and pain points. It is important to her to provide the best experience possible to her clients.
Danielle Rochon does not only cater to brides, but anyone from a business woman who wants new images to revamp her website to celebrities walking the red carpet or appearing on television to corporations looking for grooming for company executives.
Danielle has worked with celebrity clients such as singer and Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson, actor and rock star Lenny Kravitz, actress Ebony Obsidian, and Grammy-nominated rapper Rhapsody. Danielle has worked with Illinois State's Attorney Kim Foxx and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and producer of the 1619 Project Nikole Hannah-Jones.
Danielle worked on Season 1 of Saturdays on Disney and Season 1 of Big Leap (Fox). She day played as an additional makeup artist on Force Season 1 (Starz), Ironheart, and Tyler Perry's upcoming film Mea Culpa. She was one of the makeup artists for Black Ink Crew Chicago Season 3 and 4 (VH1) and she regularly works with CBS providing makeup for anchors, reporters, and guests. Most recently Danielle's work can be seen on Soledad Obrien for HBO Real Sports.
Danielle also prepares her clients for appearances on Fatal Attraction (TV One), The Jam TV Show, Fox32's Flannery Fired Up, and Windy City Live.
She has also had the privilege to work with the CEO of the Dallas Mavericks Cynthia Marshall, Facebook, Leo Burnett, US Cellular, and Donnelly Financial.
