Celebrity makeup artist Beau Nelson has been creating beauty for over half of his life. Working professionally at the age of 14, Nelson’s ambition was apparent from even a young age.
Nelson’s work is generously informed by his passions for contemporary art, art history, high-end architecture and design and music of every tone. He reveres all the great icons of glamour, especially such late 20th Century style stars as Halston, Guy Bourdin, Jerry Hall and Carine Roitfeld of Vogue Paris.
Originally from a small town in Southern Alberta, Canada, Nelson now resides in New York City where he maintains a much varied, star studded clientele including women like Kristen Stewart, Nicole Richie, Jessica Alba, Christina Hendricks, Sienna Miller, Iman, Mary J. Blige, Brooke Shields, Lindsay Price and Blake Lively.
