With a beauty background gleaned from MAC and Bare Escentuals, Danielle has a natural eye for gorgeous makeup. Hailing from the sunny west coast, her sartorial flair for modern meets vintage and a penchant for old Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn films, inspire her cosmetic creations and makes her a perfect fit for The Karcher. Says Hartnett, “I love to bring out the natural beauty in others by enhancing their favorite features, but I also believe a bold lip and cat eye looks great on everyone!” Danielle understands the importance of making a polished presentation every day with the confidence-boosting power of makeup. “If you spend that extra five minutes on yourself before you walk out the door, it makes a difference not only to you, but those who interact with you.”
“In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different.” —Coco Chanel
