About the artist
Artist since her childhood, Geneviève Houle, better known under the name of Jinny, specialized in artistic makeup.
She has been able to take her place in this field for more than twenty years. She travels around the world and
shares her techniques and creativity with her students. Despite her ability to create a panoply of style to meet the
demand of her customers, she still has a style of her own that people recognize. Thousands of “fans” follows her
work. What sets her creations apart from others is her way of using colors so that contrasts and shapes follow the
lines of the body and facial features. Her work has been published in several international media, magazines,
books, TV, movies, commercials, conventions, “shows” and corporate events.
In 2001, her collaboration with Mehron Inc.’s chemist in New York City made her the
CO-CREATOR of the makeup line PARADISE MAKEUP AQ. She is the only artist to have contributed to the
creation of a line of artistic make-up from A to Z. The line holds the “JINNY APPROVED” stamp since its creation.
She has worked to create products that are not only natural by their ingredients but also good for the skin and in
addition 100% vegan. PARADISE MAKEUP AQ is sold internationally.
