Premiere Face Designer
Like so many in makeup artistry, Rhona came to her career in a circuitous fashion. She worked as assistant to a renowned news anchor at ABC, where she met the head of the network's makeup department. She watched and learned and found herself fascinated by the transformative power of makeup on a more mature face.
After leaving the network and moving to Houston, a chance meeting led her to becoming a makeup artist, largely based on her skill with her own look. From her training in New York, Washington and Houston, Rhona developed what she calls the nuts and bolts of the art.
Now she practices that art for Giorgio Armani Beauty. Her celebrity clients read like a who's who of beauty, including Kerry Washington and Solange among others. When she isn't creating faces for Hollywood elite and real women at Giorgio Armani counters in America, Rhona works behind the scenes all over the world alongside Tim Quinn, Linda Cantello and Mr. Armani himself.
Rhona's artistic philosophy is to enhance a woman's inner beauty and self-confidence. "A confident, beautiful woman transcends most anything, and I love to be part of that process", she says.
This approach has garnered a loyal Giorgio Armani following among the social network of Dallas and Houston. "Makeup is one of the ways we can honor our femininity."
