Make-up

After exploring a degree in communications, Ashley Donovan instead decided to pursue her creative passions in life. Always the risk-taker, she packed up her beat-up car and headed west from small-town Texas to chase the dazzling lights of Hollywood.
 
Armed with intuition, moxie, and a strong work ethic, Ashley carved out a 14-year makeup career that has attracted a list of celebrity clients including Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Nettles, Chloe Bridges, Camren Bicondova, Brandy Clark, Valerie Bertinelli, and Kacey Musgraves to name a few. 
 
Ashley's clients feel at ease with her relaxed demeanor and cooperative attitude on set, but remain impressed by her passion and eye for detail. She has the unique talent of allowing women to feel like their best selves by enhancing the natural beauty she sees in them, all while adding her own signature creative touch. Her resourcefulness and diverse skill set make her an asset to any job. Whether it be a red carpet, a music video, a photoshoot, a commercial, or a press junket around the world, she is always prepared.
 
Ashley’s work and expertise has been featured in publications worldwide including Elle, InStyle, Cosmopolitan, Rolling Stone, Redbook, Glamour, Billboard, Popsugar, and WWD.  She has collaborated with an impressive list of photographers such as Erik Asla, Thomas Whiteside, Jeff Lipsky, Jeremy Cowart, Jill Greenburg, Dominick Guillemot, Robert Erdmann, Ben Watts, Miller Mobley, and Jamie Beck.  Her  wide range of commercial clients have included Toyota, Pepsi, Ford, Amazon, Coca-Cola, Citizen Watches, Vera Bradley, Halebob, LNA Clothing, Lee + Lani Swimwear, and Microsoft.
 
She has worked with cosmetic brands Thrive Causemetics, Mary Kay, and Maybelline. She has also been an on-camera makeup artist for shows such as WAGS, America’s Next Top Model, and Fashion Star. She has also been the lead makeup artist for over a dozen runway shows.  Social media has become another creative outlet for Ashley, and her reach is over 15k across multiple platforms.
 
Looking forward, Ashley plans to combine her skills as a makeup artist with her media intelligence, social media savvy, and eye for creative direction to further herself as a multi-dimesional brand. 
 
Ashley lives in Los Angeles, but her bags are always packed.
