Terri Carter Donohue, Makeup Artists/Hairstylists

With over twenty years experience, a 'light hand', infectious laugh, and strong work ethic, makeup artist, Terri Carter-Donohue proudly serves as the Television Academy Governor of Makeup. Upon arriving to Los Angeles (just a couple short decades ago), this east coast transplant hit the ground running.

As a beauty artist, music videos marked her first foray onto the entertainment scene, where she quickly gained experience working with high-profile artists such as Prince, Paula Abdul, and Usher, to name a few. Expanding her repertoire, Terri branched out into other mediums, honing her craft in the world of beauty, high fashion magazine editorials, and eventually commercials. Although her love of fashion ran deep, she soon discovered her niche was television - which in turn, led to an Emmy nomination.

With a vast array of TV credits under her belt, Terri has most notably worked several seasons on Grey's Anatomy, All My Children, Splitting Up Together, Dear White People, Dr. Ken, Access Hollywood, The Mayor, Stitchers… and so on.

In addition to being an accomplished makeup artist, Terri has also lent her talents to education, having taught beauty makeup at MUD (Make-up Designory). She received her formal training years ago at the Joe Blasco Makeup Academy.
