Kennedy is a makeup artist based between New York and Los Angeles.

A Southern California native, Kennedy became fascinated with the art of make-up at an early age. Encouraged by her artist grandmother, she spent her childhood drawing, painting, and sculpting as she absorbed the principles of color theory and formal composition. This love of the arts soon connected with a growing interest in the world of beauty and fashion.

Quickly adapting to the demands of the industry in Los Angeles, she sharpened her skills in fashion editorials, runway shows, fine art, and advertising. As opportunities mounted, she began to develop a singular touch and sharp eye for the bold and unexpected while maintaining a veneration for colorful abstraction that her grandmother instilled in her. Kennedy’s intrigue lies in her passion for the unexpected— the subtle or bold twists that can transform ordinary makeup into boundary-pushing art.

Kennedy’s work has been published in Vogue US, Vogue Italia, British Vogue, W Magazine, Dazed, Acne Paper, Pop, amongst others, and has worked with photographers like Carlijn Jacobs, Steven Klein, Juergen Teller, Jamie Hawkesworth, Renell Medrano, Collier Schorr, Michael Bailey Gates and Theo Liu.

Kennedy’s advertising clients include Loewe, Fendi, Valentino, Balmain, Blumarine, Marc Jacobs, Jacquemus, Manu Atelier, MAC Cosmetics, Calvin Klein, Gap, amongst others.

She has worked with actors and musicians like Madonna, Alexa Demie, Sabrina Carpenter, Troye Sivan, Charli XCX, and Yves Tumor to name a few.
