Hi, my name is Jesus Rivera, also known as Jesse. I am a professional Makeup Artist with over seven years of experience. Makeup is my true passion.  I started pursuing my long time hidden talent over seven years ago when I decided to take a makeup course at Ruby Makeup Academy in Temple City, California.  This is one of the most popular schools for makeup in Southern California. beauty, bridal, Smokey eye, 1920`s, 1950`s, 1960`s, and avant-garde makeup. 

As I work my way through this very competitive makeup industry, I find myself navigating in a field of many opportunities; to grow as an artist and as a person. I am very dedicated to working hard and perfecting my craft.  I am always faced with new challenges, and my goal is to surpass them and learn from them.  I find this to be an awesome and adventurous field to work in.  I have worked with many very talented artists and have met wonderful people.

My work as a makeup artist has allowed me to work on many events, such as runways, photo shoots, weddings, fashion shows, sweet 15`s, and Latin celebrity makeup.  I have also worked with organizations and corporations, such as Univision Television Group, OC SOMOS, Miss Colima USA, photographers, and at Salon Le Rouge, where I currently have a permanent beauty station and have a steady clientele.

My ultimate goal as a professional makeup artist is to keep growing and working hard to eventually be a well rounded makeup artist in this industry of beauty, fashion, TV, and more. The sky is the limit. I'll stay inspired and hope to inspire others with my professional work.
