The story of me…

(told in third person which is always been a little weird to me)

Originally from San Diego California, Jaiya Rose a.k.a Makeup Ninja has been a resident to Nashville since 1998.

Her love for makeup and costume design  was originally inspired by the West coast club scene and Vegas night life which she brought with her upon her move to the South.

What started as just an obsession for playing dress up and a flare for fashion inevitably blossomed into her career as a makeup artist and image consultant

She studied theatrical makeup application for stage, film, and print  under the instruction of the founder of Performance Studio’s Nashville and has continued to educate herself in the art of makeup artistry through classes, seminars, and apprenticeships over the last 15 years. I have  learned a lot  while working among some of the most amazing artists while freelancing for MAC over the last 10 years and am currently a color artist for Sephora nashville In Green Hills.

okay this third party thing is getting to weird…….

I have worked on several projects over the years, including fashion shows, hair shows, bridal shows, live stage performances, photographer and model portfolio shoots, artist promo videos and head shots, Independent films, special FX and character makeup,  personal makeup application instruction and image consultation. Pin-up, Boudau, Glamour, Prom, black tie events, and last but certainly not least…Bridal!!!!

It is my true passion and goal to make women and men feel and look their best, and create stunning images that will last a life time.

I am the Makeup ninja!!!!!!
