Lena Chavez is a Bay Area native residing in San Francisco with a client roster that spans nationwide. From a very young age, she always knew she wanted to do something creative while uplifting others, but wasn’t sure how until discovering her calling in the beauty industry during 2001.

Graduating from esthetician school along with her role at Sephora gave her a glimpse into makeup artistry where she continued to carve her path. The training received from senior level trainers from some of the top artistry brands around the globe established her foundation, and through the years she further honed in on her craft while tenaciously refining her skill set.

Lena credits being part of Laura Mercier’s artistry team for nearly a decade as one of the largest sources of her inspiration and growth. She specializes in bringing out the best in her clients based on the needs of the occasion and her ability to connect with others on an emotional level. Clients often describe her as an attentive, grounded and creative spirit. Whether it’s a personal branding photo shoot, a musician’s album cover or a bride on her wedding day—Lena’s arsenal of talent has earned her wide recognition as an established makeup artist in the industry today.

In constant collaboration with other inspiring creatives on her path, she remains grounded and extremely grateful to be able to do what she loves—you will see and experience it in the breath of her work.
