It could easily be a nightmare being married to a man the world knows as McDreamy - Patrick Dempsey of Grey's Anatomy, duh - but so rewarding is Jillian Dempsey's own life that, well, if she were an actress, you'd say she was upstaging him. Founder of hipster makeup line Delux Beauty, the makeup artist was tapped by Avon to dream up colors and products shortly before giving birth to twin sons, Darby and Sullivan, and gussying up Kirsten Dunst for the red-carpet premiere of Marie Antoinette.
