Hey! I'm Jaurdane. My friends call me DJ. I am a published makeup artist, creative director, and digital content creator based out of Dallas,Texas.
I began my professional career as a makeup artist and beauty content creator. My talent for impactful art could not be contained to just makeup. Using my 10+ year experience in digital marketing strategy and sophisticated design aesthetic , I get to work as a creative director who helps connect your message to your audience through beauty, art and design.
I worked as creative director, designer and social media consultant, for prestigious brands and organizations like Mercedes Benz, Michael’s, DayStar Network, The Potter’s House, Ornelia Kane & Botham Jean Foundation and notable individuals including Kierra Sheard, Pat Smith & Emmit Smith, and some of your favorite lifestyle and beauty influencers.
You’ve seen my makeup work on phenomenal faces like Christine Caine, Priscilla Shirer, Sheryl Brady, Sherri Shepheard, Kym Whitley, and with top brands including Essence and Lane Bryant.
When I'm not transforming brands, I am speaking, mentoring creatives, and providing resources to help working creatives navigate their professional career.
I went to college at 16! Yep, 16 years old. I was the youngest out of all my friend groups.
Speaking of college, I majored in Vocal Perfomance and Audio Engineering. LOL! Yeah I thought I was going to be the next Whitney Houston or Missy Elliot.
My favorite color as a child was purple and my fave color as an adult is almost any shade of green. But emerald green for sure.
Believe it or not, I am the 2nd oldest of 7 siblings.
I LOVE french fries, If I could, I would happily eat Mc Donalds EVERY DAY!
I have two first names and two last names.
