I’m Gina “Jet” Ortiz and I’m a professional makeup artist and educator. I’ve been teaching makeup to transgender women and girls, as well as crossdressers and Drag Princesses, for 23 years. I am a cis-gender female and graduate of the prestigious Westmore Academy of Cosmetic Arts, and my degree is Makeup for Motion Pictures and Television, specializing in Gender Illusion.
If you’ve been struggling to learn makeup and you’re tired of sorting through a million YouTube videos just to find the information that applies to you, then it might be time to consult a professional who specializes in teaching absolute beginners, regardless of where you are on the gender spectrum.
I offer private, one-on-one instruction as well as courses, books, and videos that are designed for the absolute beginner. I have teaching methods that fit every schedule and budget, and I’m honored to be part of your makeup journey!
