As a professional makeup educator for over 15+ years, Yvonne worked as an international training artist for both Marc Jacobs Beauty and Make Up For Ever.

She loves sharing her knowledge and experience on stage with pro artists as an educator with THE MAKEUP SHOW (dates for 2022).
Yvonne continues to expand her reach in the digital space to her over 36k reach as contestant on World Of Wonder’s Painted With Raven, S1. Yvonne showcases her limitless creativity and devotion to creating safe spaces where makeup is used as a form of art and self expression.

As a natural extension of that philosophy, Yvonne and her wife, Lijha Stewart, developed The Creative Makeup — a makeup company devoted to creating artistic mediums, classes and tools for fellow professional artists and makeup enthusiasts. Their credo and guiding light from the beginning has been “we are all artists, makeup is our medium.”
