Makeup Artist Kelsey Deenihan was born and raised in Los Angeles but has had the opportunity to travel the world painting some of Hollywood’s most recognizable faces. As far back as Kelsey can remember she was waving a makeup brush at her friends and family or anyone that would let a toddler come near their face! At the tender age of 15 Kelsey’s parents graciously supported her in signing up for a summer makeup course guiding her through print, tv, film and fx makeup. That was it! She was hooked….from 15 years old on she knew she had a long career as a makeup artist ahead of her, and couldn’t be more excited.
Kelsey went on to complete High School in Los Angeles and continued on to the University of Colorado at Boulder. Already with her eyes on makeup for a long term career she focused on courses giving her a broader understanding and background in fine arts and art history. She graduated with a double major in Photography and Digital Medias with a double minor in Art History and Classical Arts.
Now as one of Hollywood’s go to artists Kelsey frequents between Los Angeles and New York. Her talents have taken her from Europe to Australia and many places in-between. You can catch her work on many television programs including Bravo’s Launch my Line, The View, MAD TV, E! News, The Academy Awards, Americas Best Dance Crew and many more including music videos for Britney Spears and Lady Gaga. Kelsey has worked with some of Hollywood’s hottest young talent including Audrina Patridge, Leighton Meester, Linday Lohan, JoAnna Garcia, Lauren Conrad and Julie Benz.
Residing in Los Angeles and with over 10 years in the industry Kelsey continues to be a celebrity “go to” for any, tv, print or red carpet event.
