About Me

Deirdre DeRiggs-Cameron was born on the beautiful Caribbean Spice island of Grenada. She spent all of her teenage years in Toronto, Canada where delved into the world of beauty and fashion by modeling and producing fashion shows. She later moved to New York where she continued her career. Her interest in the beauty industry soon expanded to include skincare and makeup artistry. She thus attended Christine Valmy International School in New York City and became a certified esthetician and makeup artist. Not satisfied to keep her ever growing knowledge to herself, she decided to undertake her first entrepreneurial venture, the founding of Facile Beauty; a training center for those interested in various facets of beauty and fashion.
Throughout the years she has shared her wealth of knowledge by writing for magazines, newspapers and books on the topics of beauty and fashion. In addition she has conducted beauty classes, seminars and workshops and she has also been interviewed on numerous radio programs and has demonstrated her skills on television shows in the Caribbean and the US. In 2007 when The Miss World Pageant returned to Grenada after many decades she lent her talent as a makeup artist for one of the preliminary competitions.
Most recently she has added photography to her list of artistic endeavours. One of her very first beauty portraits was recognized, awarded and published in a coffee table photography book.
Deirdre currently resides in Connecticut, USA with her two beautiful and brilliant children, Jourdan and Kassidy and her very supportive husband Krys, where she oversees the day to day operation of her makeup and photo studio, Jourdy’s Makeup & Photo Studio.
