Lydia (also known as Cindy Huynh) is a certified makeup artist and freelance fashion professional. She was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Lydia specializes in HD (High Definition) beauty makeup for fashion, entertainment, film sets, and bridal clientele. She utilizes waterproof makeup, using the USA Olympic synchronized swimmers' go-to professional makeup line including Makeup Forever Aqua. Not a slave to one makeup branding, Lydia endorses celebrity and beauty ambassador-approved cruelty free makeup and vegan products.
Prior to obtaining her makeup artistry certification, she has done makeup for bridal parties, and worked on LA-based film sets and fashion shows. From a young age, Lydia has always been fascinated with makeup and cosmetics, following the footsteps of her dear mother, a cosmetologist, who has been working in the industry for over 35 years.
Outside of the beauty industry, Lydia leads drawing/painting fine art workshops and painting parties at a fine arts & crafts retailer. She is deeply involved in the local SF bay area music and art scene. Lydia enjoys working alongside theatrical production teams, film directors and fashion industry professionals, bringing her creative vision onto a myriad of ideas, collaboratively, on a greater level of production and visual installation.
