Over the past 20 years, Fiona has built a steadfast reputation as one of the top celebrity makeup artists in the industry today. Known for her finely-honed techniques, supernatural skin and awe-inspiring lips and eyes, she has garnered increasing recognition and respect among the fashion, music and entertainment industries. One of her key talents and missions is removing the intimidation of cosmetics and encouraging confident self-expression through meaningful education, quality products and creative techniques.
Fiona discovered her creative talent early on as a photography student at the Rhode Island School of Design, where she paid close attention to light and color and began to develop her aesthetic sensibility. A combination of serendipity and chance veered Fiona away from fine art photography and into the world of beauty and fashion. After diving into the world of beauty, she exerted herself as every opportunity arose. This eventually allowed her to reveal a natural talent that quickly became respected and landed her on the sets of the industry’s most influential models, photographers and celebrities.
Within the industry Fiona believes that the uniqueness of every face should be celebrated. “My work highlights someone’s natural gifts and makes them even more spectacular through the power of makeup. I love to transform and re-imagine women in the most beautiful way possible,” she says.
Fiona’s regular clients are some of the world’s most recognizable faces, including Jessica Alba, Jennifer Garner, Nicole Richie, Jessica Chastain, Elizabeth Banks, Gabrielle Union and many others. Over the course of her career, she has showcased her skill on countless iconic women for special projects, including the likes of Natalie Portman, Gwyneth Paltrow, Demi Moore, Lily Aldridge, Eva Mendes, Carrie Underwood, Amy Adams, Heidi Klum, and Helen Mirren.
Fiona’s work and expertise has been published widely in America and beyond, including Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Allure, ELLE, InStyle and Vanity Fair. She was nominated for an Emmy for her work on Madonna Live: The Drowned World Tour (HBO). She has also worked with many of the world’s most elite photographers and directors including Mario Testino, Steven Klein, Inez & Vinoodh, Annie Leibovitz and Ellen Von Unwerth.
When she’s not traveling the world, Fiona lives in Los Angeles with her husband and daughter.
