Born and raised in Japan, Yumi Mori has been a makeup artist for some of the world’s most famous celebrities, models, photographers, and fashion designers for more than 15 years.
As a young girl, she loved pouring over fashion magazines. At the age of 25 she trained under legendary artist Pat McGrath, and was her first assistant for nearly 5 years.
Yumi is known for her natural “no-makeup” look. With an eye for color, she has created stunning looks for celebrity clients like Priyanka Chopra, Drew Barrymore, Emma Watson, Julianne Moore, and Gisele Bündchen.
Her editorial credits include Vogue, W, Marie Claire, Harper’s Bazaar, Allure, and Vanity Fair magazines.
Yumi has collaborated with industry leaders such as Norman Jean Roy, Cass Bird, Sebastian Kim, Thomas Whiteside and Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.
