Jenna Menard Named As Clinique’s First Global Colour Artist
Clinique named makeup artist Jenna Menard as its first Global Colour Artist in 2011. A rising star in the beauty industry, Menard brings a decade of expertise and a modern perspective to Clinique. She shares the brand’s philosophy that makeup can complement the natural beauty of a woman. Menard has received widespread recognition for her makeup artistry through her work in top magazines globally, with celebrity clientele, and from the runways of the fashion capitals of the world.

Additionally, she works closely with the Clinique Product Development, Marketing and Education teams to inspire the development of new products, trends and application techniques.
Menard was exposed to the transformative power of beauty at an early age. Her mother ran a hair salon out of their home, and Menard vividly remembers seeing her mother’s clients happy and confident with their new look. Her lucky break came during college when she had an opportunity to meet legendary, award-winning costume designer, Ann Roth, who helped her get her first makeup job as an assistant on the set of a blockbuster film in New York. Soon thereafter, she was mentored on the art of makeup under the direction of world-class masters who guided her artistic techniques.
Menard has collaborated with celebrated photographers, worked with award-winning actresses and has showcased her artistry on the runways of New York, Milan and Paris. Her editorial work has received worldwide recognition and her expert advice is featured in magazines and websites around the world. Vogue, Elle, Harper's Bazaar and Vanity Fair are among the publications in which her work has appeared.
Jenna’s partnership with Clinique allows her to connect with millions of women around the world and share her insights, knowledge and techniques to enhance their natural beauty.
Jenna is a graduate of Lafayette College and holds a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. In her spare time, she enjoys working out, running marathons and lives an active lifestyle in New York City.
