Yvonne is a pro makeup artist, educator and advocate for ethics and celebration of diversity in the beauty space. Yvonne has worked on and off camera for over 15 years and continues to push boundaries combining masterful beauty work with her flair for using color and texture in unconventional ways.
Yvonne has spent 10 years of her career working backstages in New York, London, Paris and Milan which keeps her eye on the next hot trend when conceptualizing ideas for makeup campaigns, hosting editor desk-sides events and photoshoots for major beauty clients like REVLON, Danessa Myricks Beauty, It Cosmetics, KISS, Pat McGrath Labs, Givenchy Beauty, YSL Beauty, MAKE UP FOR EVER and many more.
As a professional makeup educator for over 15+ years, Yvonne worked as global artist for Marc Jacobs Beauty and Make Up For Ever. It was there that she was able to use her skills as an educational expert for young artists in markets all over the world from Dubai to Singapore to Barcelona. She loves sharing her knowledge and experience on stage with pro artists as an educator with THE MAKEUP SHOW, touring the US in 2022.
Yvonne continues to expand her reach in the digital space as contestant on World Of Wonder’s Painted With Raven, 2021-2022. On the show, Yvonne showcases her limitless creativity, avant garde design and fearless devotion to creating safe spaces where makeup is used as a form of art and self expression.
As a natural extension of that philosophy, last year Yvonne and her wife, Lijha Stewart, developed The Creative Makeup — a makeup company devoted to creating artistic mediums, classes and tools for fellow professional artists and makeup enthusiasts. Their credo and guiding light from the beginning has been “we are all artists, makeup is our medium.”
