Founder Jillian Dempsey is a celebrated makeup artist, entrepreneur and animal activist known for her innovative approaches to beauty. Dempsey is best known for creating masterful makeup looks that allow her clients to reveal their most authentic and beautiful selves. The world’s top photographers, editors, and Hollywood talent (Kristen Stewart, Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Winslet, to name a few) seek out Jillian for the precision of her hand and her special skin-enhancing techniques.
After learning her craft in Paris and London, Dempsey relocated to Los Angeles to try her hand as a key artist on films, television, and music videos. An A-list client roster quickly ensued, all while Jillian built an impressive editorial portfolio, shooting for some of the most highly regarded beauty and fashion magazines in the world.
But Dempsey didn’t stop there. A true artist, Jillian is never complacent when it comes to product quality and innovation, which is why she has created two highly respected independent makeup collections. Delux Beauty, her first makeup brand, was an industry favorite that simplified blending and application by abandoning tools and encouraging users to trust their own hands. Jillian continued to trail blaze in the industry and soon followed with the launch of her eponymous makeup line, Jillian Dempsey. Known for her warmth, authenticity, and unparalleled sense of design, the signature line is steeped in Dempsey's meticulous appreciation of the interplay between color and texture.
With a non-negotiable insistence on clean ingredients and a commitment to filling a genuine need, the Jillian Dempsey line is tightly edited, effortless and most of all, high performing.
