Eiléen grew up in New York where her passion for the transformational powers of makeup first became an obsession that launched her career as an international fashion makeup artist and beauty consultant. Eager to learn more, Eiléen completed every MAC Pro and Tobi Britton Makeup School class in NYC before her quest for proper training took her to London in 2005.
She earned an International Makeup Association (IMA) Fashion & Photographic Diploma and an IMA Makeup Application Certificate at the London School of Beauty & Makeup. She went on to teach professional and private makeup application lessons at the Jemma Kidd Makeup School until she began to get work in Dubai.
Based in Dubai since 2008, Eiléen consults local beauty brands, conducts workshops and writes for numerous media outlets including her recently-launched EileenEdit.com blog!
