Jillian Dawson is a freelance makeup artist based out of Appleton, Wisconsin. Her business is built on a solid foundation of education, starting with the Make-Up Designory in California where she studied all aspects of makeup artistry from beauty principals, air-brushing, prosthetics and special effects with a focus on artistry for film/television and photography.
Over the past thirteen years, Jillian’s education continued, working as a makeup artist for MAC Cosmetics, an artist and in-store educator for Sephora, attending the Gill Tech Academy of Hair Design and eventually fulfilling her goal of working independently as a freelance artist out of her own studio.
