About Jillian Dawson
My career as a makeup artist is built on a solid foundation of education, beginning with the Make-Up Designory in Burbank, California. There I studied all aspects of makeup artistry from beauty principals, prosthetics, air-brushing and special effects with a focus on artistry for film/television and photography.
Over the course of the past ten years, I have worked as an artist for MAC Cosmetics, an artist/store educator for Sephora as well as attending the Gill Tech Academy for Cosmetology. My experience through these positions have lent to an invaluable number of trainings in product knowledge and artistry as well as introduced me to hundreds of wonderful clients each with their own unique vision.
My artistry has been utilized through bridal, boudoir, senior portraits, editorial photography, commercial work and independent films. I also offer makeup lessons, whether you’re applying makeup for the first time, transitioning or simply looking for help with the products you already have in your kit.
