Terri Tomlinson Terri Tomlinson | @territomlinsonmakeup

Terri has been working as a hair and makeup artist in Dallas for over 25 years. I have done makeup on dogs, athletes, politicians, models, actors, and regular people. I have been hired to turn someone into a pirate, create tan lines, paint palm trees on kids faces, and of course to make people look haute! I love super natural, clean makeup and getting people “camera ready”. I have a light hand and am pretty quick. I am fascinated and love working in HD.

I create hair and makeup for print, film, video, runway, Television and the real world. Along with working as a makeup artist and hair stylist, I also work in front of the camera as a beauty expert, develop makeup rooms and train on-air personalities on makeup, and teach those that want to be professional artists.

During our “re-invention period” (the recession) I started teaching new and existing makeup artists the craft which led to the creation of Terri Tomlinson Makeup Training Academy in 2010. I offer full-time makeup instruction to new and existing makeup artists, as well as mentor those in the industry. In June 2014 I opened a makeup studio in Addison where I carry pro-focused makeup products, work with the consumer, and educate. I have created my own makeup line as well which I sell at and in the studio. I hope you will come by for a visit and espresso.
