All her life Devan has been fascinated with costumes and makeup. If she wasn't putting together outfits from her parents closets, she was painting her brothers face to be a character in her latest story. The passion for expression through appearance led Devan to pursue a career in the world of makeup, beginning with a license in cosmetology in 2009. She went on to work for MAC Cosmetics in 2011, providing her with the ability to expand her beauty skills and explore the makeup needs of many different types of people.

Devan completed the master makeup program at Cinema Makeup School in Los Angeles in February, 2013, where she was fortunate to be mentored by top professionals in the industry.

She was chosen to compete in the "Battle of the Brushes" student competition at International Make-up Artist Trade Show in Los Angeles where she won first place in the Beauty/Fantasy category. While Devan is a well trained and creative makeup artist, she also values her ability to connect with people from diverse backgrounds.

In all of her projects, it's important for Devan to have a vision of the characters she's creating and an awareness of their motivations, personalities and struggles. Whether Devan is working on an ethereal woodland goddess, a sci-fi underwater alien, or a beautiful ‘50s pin-up girl, she strives to bring emotion and purpose both to the characters she creates and the makeup she designs for them. This practice has led Devan to become invested not only in makeup art, but in costume design and hair styling as well.

Devan's work is designed to be a complete picture, and she is committed to creating an integrated package. Due to these practices, Devan has headed the makeup and hairstyling department on various feature films, worked on commercials, and fashion shows and works hard every day to stay current and active in the makeup industry.

Devan is based in Los Angeles and specializes in makeup for Film and Television.
