About Jenny Lin

Jenny picked up a makeup brush and began dabbling in makeup over a decade ago unaware of its significance while an undergrad at UT Austin. Her world was always so set and finite, with little wiggle room for creativity blindly trying to attain that science degree. 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 unexpected opportunity arose when Jenny was approached to do last minute makeup on her first short film Play Land with Ralph Smyth Entertainment. The catch was she would basically not sleep for five days since she was already booked for work that week during the day.. and these were night shoots... at the end of that very sleepless week, something ignited within her and Jenny has not looked back ever since. Fast forward, Jenny's makeups 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 faces for red carpet, special events and celebrity weddings.  

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 and trauma makeups, airbrushing, tattoo work and the ability to do whatever it takes to get the job done beautifully, efficiently and quickly. Past few nonstop years include department heading Robert Rodriguez's From Dusk Till Dawn seasons 2 and 3 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 seasons 1,3 and 4 of the hit cartel show Queen of the South shot in Dallas, TX, Malta and New Orleans. Jenny at the top of 2017, wrapped filming in Austin department heading makeup for James Cameron/ Robert Rodriguez feature film Alita: Battle Angel starring Rosa Salazar, Jennifer Connelly, Christoph Waltz, Mahershala Ali, and Lana Condor. 2019 began with the continuation of Queen of the South Season 4 in New Orleans…
