“Music moves us All - and I love to make The people Move & Feel good!”
Born in the Golden State, the city of San Francisco, Jenny Ruby embraced the infinite culture of the Bay Area and its diversity of art, food, fashion and music. As top-tier professional makeup artists ran within her family, her constant need to creatively express herself, along with her appreciation for the arts, grew as she later attended and graduated from The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising.
Jenny’s adventurous, ambitious and free-spirited lifestyle naturally began yearning for another big city challenge- New York City. Moving across the country in the height of winter and the holiday season, she knew that the Big Apple would aggressively push her out of her California comfort zone.
Within Jenny’s first year in New York City, she was able to successfully pass all invitational certifications allowing her to work alongside with the world’s top designers, photographers, stylists, models and other elite makeup artists such as herself. Having worked over 16 seasons of New York Fashion Week, she was able to work as a creative for major fashion houses such as Givenchy, Kenzo, Jeremy Scott, Michael Kors, VFiles and Balmain to name a few. In turn, she then had taken the opportunities to key photoshoots, assist fashion shows for creative direction and was able to have her artistic abilities featured on the red carpet for the Met Gala, Vogue and Cosmopolitan Magazine.
As an adventurous and an extroverted woman who is constantly seeking novel experiences to add to her resume, Jenny then found her passion for travel reignited while attending music festivals globally. Her charming and outgoing personality introduced her to a plethora of like-minded individuals that she would connect with and subsequently present her with opportunities in the entertainment world.
Jenny Ruby is an experience within itself as she naturally curates every moment to be one that is memorable. She is either making you laugh with her witty banter, enhancing your beauty inside & out or sharing the sacred lessons of what her life experiences have taught her. If you are lucky, you’ll get to experience all three.
