Gillian Mortiz is the founder and owner of Beauty Artist Group
She has over a decade of experience as a hair and makeup artist and industry innovator specializing in Brides and weddings. She styles clients herself and also curates and leads teams of top stylists for your groups and large-scale events.
Her passion for hair, makeup and beauty has driven her success as a trusted and sought-after stylist and teacher. Gillian earned her cosmetology license in hair, makeup and skin care from Capri Cosmetology Institute (New Jersey). In addition, she completed specialized hair and makeup certification in movie screen, special effects, animatronics, stage, print, fashion and runway from Make-up Designory (California).
Gillian’s career has taken her from NJ to LA (and back!) as a freelance artist for individual clients and top companies such as MAC, Nars, Lancome and Laura Mercier. She gained business and management experience working at Stila Cosmetics and co-owning various small companies. She has gained high accolades from her clients on review sites such as weddingwire.com, as well as a thriving career based on word-of-mouth referrals.
Gillian is very excited to take her career and client services to the next level as the sole founder and owner of her newly launched company Beauty Artist Group. Beauty Artist Group is headquartered in Millburn, NJ and provides in-studio and on-location hair and makeup services throughout the NJ/NY Metro Area.
Besides her two children, there is nothing Gillian loves more than enhancing the beauty of someone’s special day and the memories that are carried from it every day afterward.
