Jillian Dempsey Will Serve as Consultant For Cosmetics Industry Giant
Avon Products, Inc., has announced a collaboration with celebrity makeup artist Jillian Dempsey, a beauty industry icon and the wife of Grey's Anatomy star Patrick Dempsey.

Jillian, whose client roster includes some of Hollywood's freshest faces, will take on an enterprise-wide consulting role as Global Creative Color Director for the company, working to refresh and revitalize Avon and its flagship color brand.

The alliance with Dempsey represents the first time Avon has partnered with an outside makeup artist in a role of this kind. The cosmetics giant will collaborate closely with her in a campaign to refresh its shade palettes, launch limited-edition seasonal color collections, as well as new product concepts, beginning in Spring 2007.

"Avon was the only beauty brand in my house when I was growing up. I've always known it was a global beauty leader. As a makeup artist, I am passionate about helping women recognize their own beauty, and so it's an honor to collaborate with Avon and embrace their philosophy that every woman can have great style," Jillian said.

Mrs. Dempsey is well known within the cosmetics industry as one of the most talented, influential artists in the field. Jillian's career has taken her around the world -- from Hollywood to London, Paris and Tokyo -- and she has worked as a key makeup artist in films, TV and in the music industry.

Her work has been featured throughout the pages of countless beauty and fashion magazines, including Allure, Elle, Marie Claire and Vanity Fair. She resides in Los Angeles and Maine along with Patrick and their young daughter, Talula.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
