Dawn Shand Johnson

Professional Make-up Artist Dawn Shand Johnson started her career in Vancouver, Canada and is now based out of Los Angeles.  Since moving to LA, Dawn has become highly experienced in all facets of the entertainment business, from Editorial, Runway, Commercial, Film, Music Videos, TV, and Red Carpet events.  

In addition to her freelance makeup work, Dawn served as Beauty Editor of Genlux Magazine, a Los Angeles based luxury fashion and beauty publication for over five years. Both positions were the perfect mix for Dawn, allowing her to grow as an artist and having access to cutting-edge trends and products as a Beauty Editor. While at Genlux Dawn was tapped to create high-profile magazine cover looks for actresses Emmanuelle Chriqui, Hayden Panettiere, Alicia Silverstone, Estella Warren, Misha Barton and Helen Mirren. 

Dawn left Genlux when she became pregnant with her second child and took a break to be home with her kids. Getting pregnant inspired Dawn to make a switch to a greener healthier lifestyle, green her makeup kit and launch an “Green Beauty and Wellness” blog Pink Kale. As the Editor in Chief of Pink Kale Dawn combines her extensive beauty and makeup knowledge along with her beauty editing background, and her passion for health, wellness and green living.  

Dawn loves being part of the creative process, discovering innovative eco friendly beauty products and working as part of a team. Her light touch and intuitive make-up application skills - coupled with her professional on-set personality and dedication - make her a wonderful addition to any project.  Always looking for fresh, new challenges and constantly working on perfecting her craft, Dawn continues to make her unique mark on the make-up and beauty industry.

She is busy, loving every minute of it and currently resides in Los Angles with her husband, and two cute kids.
