Jenny picked up a makeup brush and began dabbling in makeup over a decade ago unaware of its significance while an undergrad student at the college of Natural Sciences at University of Texas at Austin. Her world was always so set and finite, with little wiggle room for creativity working in university cancer research labs day after day in addition to her course load. The very act of creating inspired Jenny to take herself to the next level and began working hands-on with cosmetics part time. Her first opportunity arose when Jenny was approached to design makeup for her first short film. The catch was she would essentially not sleep for five days since she was already booked for work that week... at the end of that week, something ignited within and Jenny has not looked back since that first show with Ralph Smyth Productions. Fast forward a few years and Jenny's work has been seen on major motion pictures, television shows and national commercials. Beyond her video work, Jenny attained experience in makeup for commercial print ads and lifestyle shoots as well as a roster of celebrity, political and public faces for red carpet and special events.
Jenny Lin's work and herself has been featured in National publications such as Runner's World and local Austin Publications including Tribeza and Austin Woman Magazine. She has expanded her makeup bag of tricks to include special effect makeups, airbrushing, tattoos and the ability to do whatever it takes to get the job done beautifully, efficiently and quickly. Recent works include department heading Robert Rodriguez's From Dusk Till Dawn seasons 2 and 3 (shot in ABQ) as well as department head duties on video game giant Roosterteeth's first full-length feature Lazer Team, beauty and effects makeup for Demi Lovato's music video "Confident" and leading makeup designs/makeup effects for FOX 21 USA's 13 episodic Queen of the South shot in Dallas, TX.
Jenny recently wrapped filming in Austin department heading makeup for James Cameron/ Rodriguez feature film Alita: Battle Angel starring Rosa Salazar, Jennifer Connelly, Christoph Waltz, Mahershala Ali, and Lana Condor. Currently Jenny is on location shooting a Marvel pilot directed by Bryan Singer with her partner in crime on the hair side, Charles Yusko.
