Gail Johnson

Gail Johnson, soap actress turned Emmy nominated makeup artist, knows beauty. Gail, who starred as "Mimi" on Days of Our Lives, went from soap star to premiere celebrity makeup artist. As a Hollywood makeup artist for the likes of Kathleen Noone, Susan Seaforth Hayes, Barbara Mandrell, and Lee Taylor Young, Gail worked her way up to Dept. Head (Key Makeup) on NBC's Sunset Beach where she and her team were nominated for a Daytime Emmy.

Gail has also created a new innovative product, (true)Promise, that addresses the real concerns of actors and actresses who are working in High-Definition, where even tiny lines and wrinkles can no longer be hidden by conventional makeup and lighting techniques. This product was designed to instantly smooth out fine surface lines and give a matte finish upon application leaving the user with a smoother canvas for makeup application.
