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 and beauty. 

After sharpening her skills with top makeup artists such as Diane Kendal, Val Garland, and Fulvia Farolfi, she spent years working on-set with world renowned photographers such as Patrick Demarchelier, Tom Munro, Ben Watts, 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.
