Born and raised in California, Jill Powell’s love for all things beauty and fashion started at an early age. While in high school, Jill was recruited by her friends to do their hair and makeup before events.
While in college at San Diego University, Jill began working for MAC Cosmetics to expand her training and this is where she started working with a celebrity clientele. From there, Jill became lead makeup artist for the Sephora Pro Team of international makeup artists.
Jill has taken numerous Master Classes in makeup & styling and has trained with top brands (Givenchy) and makeup artists (Alex Box, Sarah Lucero and Billy B).
Jill finds inspiration in her surroundings and in fashion. She says ‘I am a visual person and love to look at textures and colors and get inspired by everything I look at whether it be on the internet, magazines or even just walking down the street.’
Jill now works throughout the country and abroad on magazine shoots, press junkets, tours and red carpet events. Photographers she has worked with include Bleacher + Everard, John Russo, Matthew Tammaro, Miranda Penn Turin and Nino Munoz. Directors include Chris Applebaum and Max Gutierrez.
