Bio: “I (Jacks Von Liria) was born in Barcelona, Spain in 1976. Very early in my life I knew that I wanted a career in the makeup industry. My first professional exposure to the industry occurred in 1998 while working at a dance club in Ibiza, Spain. I had the opportunity to work with several incredible makeup artists and fashion designers while supporting a performance group called LOS MONSTRUOS DE IBIZA. Through this experience I worked with amazing techniques, makeups and body paintings which created beauty and artistic illusions which can only be described as WOW. At that point, I knew that I was hooked.
I enrolled in the Stick Art Studio academy, (Makeup Forever) in Barcelona in 1999, under the mentorship of Corinne Perez. Following graduation, I worked as an intern on several movie films, and television networks. I had many opportunities to travel around the world and work with some of the big names in the industry, Jorge De La Grarza, MAC Cosmetics, John Galliano and Dior, etc..
In 2009, after 10 years of hard work, I moved to USA to follow my dream of creating a new and fresh style of makeup. As a result, I was able to develop a system to help others to understand the basic rules of makeup application whiling emphasizing the techniques needed to transform a face to the limits of its potential. My knowledge and skills are here for you to take.”
“Talent is a matter of emphasis.”
