Hannah Dawson

A CMU College of Makeup Art and Design graduate in 2016, Toronto-based Hannah Dawson has been passionate about art for many years. Hannah instantly fell in love with the beauty industry when she first had her makeup done at the tender age of thirteen. Realizing that the ability to be as creative as you want to be, using your own face as a canvas and enhancing your natural features could bring you so much joy, it was inevitable for her to pursue a career in the cosmetics industry. As a makeup artist, Hannah loves the confidence and inspiration she can share with her clients.

“NUDESTIX allows you to easily achieve both complex/high fashion and simple, quick day-to-day looks. I could not be more excited to join the NUDESTIX Pro Artist Team and represent a brand I proudly use on myself and in my kit.”

PRO TIP: Apply Dewy Barrier Hydrating Stick under your makeup for a fresh, healthy glow. For a quick refresh, reapply on the high points of the face and on any dry areas. It can also be added to any matte blush or bronzer to create a dewy glow, under or on top of powder!
