Jhizet Panosian began her career in the beauty industry at 16 working at AVEDA. She followed her passion for film and earned a degree at the University of California, Santa Barbara in Film and Art History. With a unique eye for imagery, art, and the moving picture, she went on to work in film marketing and advertising, and producing promotional photo shoots. Through her work in production and working with hair and makeup artists, she rediscovered her passion for beauty and the power of transformation for the camera.
She has since developed a rising career as a makeup artist among award winning filmmakers, celebrities, singers, and athletes. Jhizet works with acclaimed talent such as Robert Redford, Quentin Tarantino, Oliver Stone, and Michael Fassbender. Her work has been featured in L’Uomo Vogue, Vanity Fair, Esquire, and W magazine, among others.
Jhizet sees each job as a creative collaborative opportunity featuring hair, makeup, fashion, and lighting. Additionally, she credits her traveling most of the globe as an intricate part of keeping a new and fresh perspective on her work.
Jhizet is also a firm believer in giving back and volunteers her time and talent to the charity “The Art of Elysium” where she works with children’s hospitals in doing makeovers and makeup applications to children with illnesses. She believes every experience and new face she touches can teach her something new and has the opportunity to make her a better artist.
