Jerry Lopez, Entrepreneur, Creative Director at Jerry Lopez New York™, and is a licensed international hair stylist and professionally trained make-up artist based in New York City. Born and raised in Lima, Peru, Jerry began his career in the beauty industry at the age of sixteen when he enrolled in cosmetology school.

Since moving to New York in 2001, Jerry has worked extensively with fashion photographers, top designers, models, celebrities, filmmakers and musicians in New York and Los Angeles. Jerry’s style & make-up artistry has adorned the faces of the fashion elite, including Donna Karan, Catherine Malandrino and actress Rosie Perez. As a make up artist and hair stylist and a very good listener, Jerry is committed to giving women important tools to make themselves look and feel more beautiful and confident. Using his wealth of knowledge, Jerry researched created and patented his own makeup line, Jerry Lopez New York™. The signature line includes affordable high quality lipglosses in 12 shades as well as mineral powder foundations, mineral eyeshadow, mineral blush and mineral bronzer.

"Hair, make up, fashion and photography play a very important role in my professional life as a beauty creator. The synergistic mix of these industries helps to channel my creative process to fully understand the complexities of women and men. I visualize, I focus, I create different looks and I love the end result. We are unique creatures in this world. Beauty is ethereal, it comes from your mind and soul and when you reach this level of understanding everything is possible,” said Jerry with his gleaming Hollywood smile.

Additional inspiration came from studying, networking and socializing in New York. Jerry has participated in several health and beauty conventions, TV Shows, fashion shows, charity events as well as magazine launches, red-carpet premieres and prestigious film festivals such as Sundance and Tribeca. "That's why New York is on my label,” said Jerry proudly. “New York is great fit for me. It is the most exciting and glamorous city in the word and it has given me the opportunity to find my niche, reinvent myself and of course share it with others.”

Jerry is well known and respected in the industry for his creativity, intuition and for paying close attention to the season’s most sought-after looks. Flawless skin with smoky eyes and glossy lips is his signature look. Trends are ephemeral but for Jerry his beauty philosophy remains simple and smart.
