My love affair with beauty products began too long ago to remember. For as long as I can recall, one of my greatest passions has always been sharing my knowledge of makeup, skin care and wellness, and guiding people to find products that bring them joy. Whether these products dramatically change your skin, or are just something that looks beautiful, smells delicious and feels luxurious. I take great pride in researching and curating the products and technology that we offer at Beauty Muse. Every brand we work with has an intentional place on our shelves and each product has been chosen for its ingredients, efficacy and purpose.
When the time came to expand the footprint of my private practice and makeup agency, it was clear to me that I wanted to create a beauty and wellness community. I wanted our space to be inviting, and our staff to be helpful guides who are just as excited about education as I am. If we don’t know the answer - we’ll find it! On any given day you may walk into the store to hear us passionately discussing ingredients or swapping beauty secrets. Whether you are a novice, or a total product junkie, we welcome you to come in and experience clean beauty with us. Welcome to Beauty Muse.
Owner | Master Clinical Esthetician | Makeup Artist
After graduating from Boston University, Dana moved to New York City to pursue her dream of working in the beauty industry. As her career progressed, Dana became an in demand makeup and brow artist for top New York City salons and photographers. She began to notice, time and time again, that her clients were trying to conceal their skin’s imperfections with makeup.
Realizing that helping her clients first achieve healthy skin was the best route to ultimate beauty, Dana went on to obtain her esthetics license from Atelier Esthétique in Manhattan and to continue her studies in specific skin conditions, such as acne and rosacea, at the International Dermal Institute. Over the past 20 years, she has worked and trained with the worlds' top skincare lines, as well as with expert estheticians and chemists alike. Her boundless passion for getting clients the best possible result has led to her exhaustive reading and researching about skin, skincare products and the latest facial techniques and technologies.
Dana Thomases is a graduate of Pastiche Method’s “Advanced Skin Analysis” training program which is recognized as the most progressive skin analysis education available worldwide. The post-graduate curriculum is the first of its kind to recognize and teach the importance of linking skin structure and function to skin condition. Her advanced education makes Dana a sought after educator and product consultant for many skin care brands.
Dana has been recognized for her work in skincare and makeup in publications such as Allure, ELLE, InStyle, Lucky, BRIDES, Sports Illustrated, Boston Common, Boston Magazine, The Improper Bostonian, The Boston Globe and The Boston Herald. She has treated the faces of fashion designers, celebrities and olympians, but her favorite thing to do is to be in the treatment room with her amazing clients.
Camilla De Souza
After earning a Bachelors Degree in Psychology from Framingham State University, Camilla De Souza worked in the field for 2 years, before deciding she wanted to try something a little different. Camilla has always been passionate about all things beauty - from makeup to skin care - and so, she decided to transform her interest into a profession. De Souza earned her esthetics license from The Catherine Hinds Institute of Esthetics and soon after joined the Beauty Muse Team to begin studying under Dana and the brands, chemists and experts we work with.
“I was lucky to have had the amazing opportunity to join the Beauty Muse team; working alongside Dana was when my interest became a passion. I enjoy making the connection between skin and psychology, my first degree. I love that skincare is a form of self care, that improving one’s skin can help improve one’s self esteem and confidence, and especially that skin care is part of whole body wellness. I’m looking forward to continuing to learn and work with our amazing team, and the incredible brands we have at Beauty Muse.”
