I am an internationally trained and highly acclaimed beauty expert, boasting a remarkable career spanning over two decades in the professional beauty industry. Throughout my journey, I have worked with renowned cosmetic brands, cementing my expertise and artistry. As a testament to my skill, my work has graced the fashion week runways worldwide, where I have contributed to the backstage makeup teams of esteemed fashion houses such as Alexander Wang, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Naeem Khan, Helmut Lang, Rodarte, Thakoon, Rag & Bone, Mansur Gavriel, Christopher Kane, Erdem, Creatures of The Wind, and various other luxury brands.

Originally hailing from Washington D.C., I relocated to Texas for a pivotal role at Nars Cosmetics, where I excelled in my craft. During my tenure, I was prominently featured on numerous news and morning shows, including Great Day Houston, Mirror Mirror, and Five to Fab. These appearances allowed me to educate viewers on the latest beauty trends, solidifying my reputation as a Global Senior Artist for the brand. Additionally, I had the privilege of making personal appearances at esteemed retailers worldwide. However, driven by an entrepreneurial spirit, I embarked on a new chapter and founded Yani's Aesthetic in 2020. As the proud founder, I'm not only a global beauty consultant. I currently provide essential tools to makeup enthusiasts and professionals. My job is to empower my clients by guiding them towards achieving a refreshed and winning aesthetic. My brand is showcased at trade shows across the country. You can find my products for purchase online and in retail. I actively contribute to industry events, participating in panels, conducting seminars, and delivering captivating keynote speeches and presentations nationwide. It is likely that you have witnessed my work on notable television shows and films.
Throughout my illustrious career, I have had the privilege of collaborating with esteemed celebrities, including Kirsten Dunst, Gabrielle Union, January Jones, Ava DuVernay, Danai Gurira, Tessa Thompson, and Zoey Deutch. Additionally, I have forged enduring partnerships with respected editors, photographers, and PR agencies, further establishing myself as a trusted professional.
