Terri Carter Donohue, Makeup Artists/Hairstylists

With over twenty years experience, a 'light hand', infectious laugh, and strong work ethic, makeup artist (MUA), Terri D. 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.

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 a Daytime 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, Access Hollywood, and most recently, new hit show The Mayor. Stitchers, an hour-long, sci-fi episodic (involving considerable Special FX), was also 'home' for two seasons, the second of which Terri served as Department Head of Makeup.

In addition to being an accomplished MUA, Terri has also lent her talents to education, having taught beauty makeup at MUD (Make-up Designory) - currently the top-rated makeup school in Los Angeles. She received her formal training at the Joe Blacso Makeup School.
