Yinna’s love of makeup stems from her background as a fine artist. After graduating from Cooper Union with a BFA in Printmaking and Sculpture, she was drawn to the intense colors and textures of the fast paced world of fashion. 

She honed her skills with top makeup artists such as Fulvia Farolfi and Diane Kendal, and quickly found herself working on-set with world renowned photographers such as Peter Lindbergh, Patrick Demarchelier, Tom Munro, and many others. 

Additionally, she has brought her creative artistry backstage to show such as Tom Ford, Alexander Wang, Jason Wu, Marc Jacobs, Vera Wang, Balenciaga, Elie Saab, Sonia Rykiel, Donna Karan, and Tory Burch, to name a few.

Today, Yinna enjoys being a valued part of the creative team. She looks forward to sharing her vast understanding of makeup techniques and experience to help build the perfect image. Her clients include Victoria's Secret, Moda Operandi, Saks, True & Co, Chromat, LaGarconne, Shipley & Halmos, Mary Meyer, Joseph Abboud, and Upstate.
