My name is Janine Ganan. I am a 25-year-old makeup artist. I currently live in Mira Mesa, but I travel all over Southern California to doll up my clients. I have been doing makeup for the past 4 years, and I love every bit of it!
I have always loved color, being able to create, and making my ideas come to live. I was originally self-taught and did makeup on myself, using YouTube as my guide. I completely fell in love with the art and versatility of makeup. I got requests from friends and family to do their makeup for them and was encouraged to pursue it as a career. I finally decided to attend Bellus Academy, where I earned my makeup certification as well as my California State Esthetician license.
I specialize in bridal and special event makeup, but I also work with photographers for photoshoots as well. For any event you need, I will definitely help you to both look and feel beautiful!
I am a born and raised San Diegan who currently resides in Rancho Bernardo with my husband and 2 little boys. Growing up, I was always fascinated with how creative hair can be to the point where I would use Janine as a doll head to figure out how to achieve certain looks.
I never thought I would be a hair stylist. It was never considered because the encouraged jobs back then were always business, nurse or lawyer. In my junior year of high school, we had to start thinking about careers. After doing some research, the only path that excited me was styling hair.
After graduating from high school in 2010, I attended Bellus Academy and got my cosmetology license. For a few years after, I worked at a couple salons and found that it wasn't really what I envisioned for myself. I realized that special events were definitely more exciting! Since then, I decided to specialize in updos; whether it be for bridal or any other occasion. I travel anywhere the events take me, primarily servicing in Southern California.
