Deborah loves humor, food, family and the beach! She also loves being around other women, and is passionate about encouraging them to embrace their natural beauty—becoming more confident and comfortable women.
She has always been interested in hair, makeup and fashion. As a teenager, her mother took her to a local beauty salon for a makeup lesson her 16th birthday, to ensure that she looked her best and knew what she was doing. From there, her interest in all things beauty and image expanded. She watched every TV show she could about makeup, took classes at the local mall, and generally, studied and practiced on herself. When friends and family would admire her look, she offered to teach them how to duplicate it. Soon, friends and neighbors were hiring her for special events, weddings, and private lessons.
After teaching in the public school system for 34 years, she retired to follow her passion and created DDFaces. Although makeup is her first love, she advises others about color selection for clothing, hair and makeup, does professional makeup for headshots, events, professional speakers and private industry. She enjoys teaching workshops about color, specific makeup techniques and helping women craft their overall image.
She and her husband, Dan, have 5 adult children and now reside in Flowery Branch, Georgia, where they share their home with their 9 year old Maltese, Roxy.
