ROMERO JENNINGS

Moving from Jamaica to New York when he was six years old gave director of make-up artistry Romero Jennings a dual heritage that offered him an eclectic and fruitful taste for both the fast pace of the city and the more wholesome approach of island life. Jennings describes his style as having four main aspects: color, nature, futurism and technology – a heady mix that he terms “organic alien.” Not the most typical approach perhaps, but certainly a winner that has propelled him to worldwide acclaim.

Joining M.A.C. in the 1990s, Jennings has always felt at home among the brand’s team. After working in Japan, where he was offered a place to study and assist make-up artists such as Mitsuru Kohno and Savaro Watanabe, Jennings returned to the Big Apple with big plans.

In the spirit of his chiseled icons, Jennings’ preferred look involves a perfected skin with a strobing face effect and an architectural eyebrow. Landing a full-page interview in the New York Times Magazine was a standout career moment, second only to being interviewed by Kim Kardashian, whom he describes as “a living doll.”
