BEHIND THE BRAND
Raven J is a highly trained, New York based Makeup Artist and Enthusiast , servicing the NY/NJ, CT, PA areas. Her love for art and beauty started at a very early age and she took her creative talents of designing, drawing, and creating and brought her artwork to life through makeup artistry.
Raven describes makeup artistry “as the special connection and opportunity to bring inner beauty to life” she explains, "every canvas (face of a client/model) is different. whether that be in shape, color, texture, etc. each canvas has a vision, an opinion, and a story. Each must be specially prepped and painted to create a customized and flawless application. The makeup products are my mediums, artfully layered and blended to achieve the desired effect. In makeup artistry, no canvas is exactly like another. No face is exactly like another. That is what makes it so beautiful and exciting."
After attending and graduating cosmetology school, Raven dabbled in hair styling, but she found her passions taking her down the path of makeup. At that point, she spent time tirelessly honing her craft, learning, and growing, and ultimately becoming self-taught with the help of some influencers she has admired along the way. Raven has spent over 5 years refining her skills and broadening her makeup experiences. She continues to acquire education on current makeup trends, techniques, and latest product knowledge. While a licensed Cosmetologist , Raven will be continuing this growth of knowledge by enrolling in a Certification Program for Makeup Artistry in the Fall 2019.
Raven J continues to work passionately, creating exquisite makeup looks on faces everywhere and helping her clients to feel confident and look their best!
