  • During her school days, she started working at a salon and selling private-label lash conditioning oil to classmates at school at the age of 14. After developing her makeup skills in Paris and London, she moved to Los Angeles to practice her craft in the entertainment industry. She decided to follow her beauty instincts and attend Charles Ross School of Hair Design in West Hollywood.
  • Thereafter, she worked for the cosmetics company Shu Uemura for a short period of time.
  • Later, she opened a hair chic L.A. salon Delux in collaboration with her sister, Kristen Fink. Apart from running her salon, Jillian was also worked as a makeup artist in the American films ‘Something to Live for: The Alison Gertz Story’ (1992), Bad Love (1992), and The Crew (1994).
  • Jillian got her big break when she got booked for a magazine shoot with American actress Brooke Shields in the ’90s. The magazine shoot attracted an abundance of opportunities for her.
  • Despite being in a relationship, Jillian got attracted to the popular American actor Patrick Dempsey when he visited her salon for a haircut. Thereafter, Patrick continued to visit the salon for haircuts over the next three years, and finally, when Jillian became single, he asked her out. The couple tied the knot in 1999 after Patrick divorced his first wife, Rochelle Rocky Parker, in 1994.
  • Patrick, 21, and Rochelle, 47, got married in 1984 when he met the widowed mother of three during one of his first acting jobs. After eight years of togetherness, Rochelle filed for divorce, citing ‘irreconcilable differences’ and accusing him of adultery and physical abuse. In legal documents, she wrote,

    While we were on the set of his (1987) movie Can’t Buy Me Love, he beat me up because he claimed he ‘wanted to see what it was like to beat up a woman!’ I now suffer from arthritis in my hand from where Respondent injured me.”

  • In 1998, she sold her salon, Delux. In 2000, her plans to establish a cosmetic range got a jump start when the renowned American actress Drew Barrymore asked her to create lip glosses for the American film Charlie’s Angels (2000). Consequently, she founded Delux Beauty, a cosmetics line of lipsticks, blushes, eye shadows, and liners. The brand simplified blending and application by abandoning tools and encouraging users to trust their own hands.
  • Her makeup brand eventually caught the eye of the multinational cosmetics and skincare company Avon. In 2006, she became the Avon Global Creative Color Director. Thereafter, Jillian created various products in collaboration with Avon for the next six years.
  • In 2014, she launched her eponymous makeup line, Jillian Dempsey. In 2015, the makeup line debuted with Khol Eye Liners. The products were created with Jillian’s non-negotiable insistence on using organic and naturally derived ingredients that are vegan and cruelty-free. The collection includes five finger-friendly products  Lid Tints, Cheek Tints, Khôl Eyeliner, a Mini Fan Brush, and a Makeup Bag, sold in stores nationwide, including Sephora and Fred Segal. She styled her iconic Gold Sculpting Bar, a skin-care tool made of 24K gold in Japan. The vibrating bar helps to tone and lift the face by relaxing facial muscles with 6000 vibrations per minute.
