About the Artist
Yumi Mori is a fashion and celebrity makeup artist based in New York. She originally came to America in the 1990s to be that cool young woman dancing near a boombox. Born and raised in Japan, Yumi has been a makeup artist for some of the world’s most famous celebrities, models, photographers, and fashion designers for more than 15 years.
