Oklahoma native and celebrity makeup-up artist DILLON PENA, continues to impress the industry with his flawless approach to the art. At a very young age, Dillon discovered his craft by constantly beautifying his five siblings who knew his eye for beauty would take him far. They encouraged him to attend cosmetology school, and ultimately, Dillon’s talent led him to NYC where he was able to work closely under Bobbi Brown.
After thirteen years in the industry, Dillon has mastered the ability to make his clients’ skin appear to glow from within. He prides himself on creating natural, skin-like makeup looks that are fresh and clean. His time spent working with Bobbi Brown and other industry professionals has helped him create his own aesthetic, one which he strives to make people more comfortable in their own skin. Inspired by each individual's natural look, Dillon enhances each person’s inner beauty rather than creating an entirely new appearance.
Dillon is sought after by publications such as ELLE, Nylon, InStyle, GQ.com, Schön, Billboard.com, CLUX and many more. He has worked with impressive makeup artists such as Marc Carrasquillo, Lisa Houghton and Sam Bryant as well as a variety of clients such as Beyoncé, Nick Jonas, Bebe Rexha, and Paul Reiser, among many others. He has led shows at New York Fashion week, and is constantly sought after for music video shoots and television shows. As an expert of the no-makeup makeup look, Dillon’s work will continue to be vindicated by the greatest celebrities and publications worldwide.
Dillon currently splits his time between Los Angeles and New York.
