About Jordan Hanz

Self-taught makeup artist Jordan Hanz says that each of her wild creations “isn't so much about the makeup, but the message behind it.” The trained portrait artists uses herself as a canvas, transforming into everything from the Game of Thrones Night King to a Wonder Woman (“the most bad ass of bitches”) that looks torn from the pages of a comic book. Jordan has a dedicated following—700K+ fans on Instagram and 600K+ on YouTube—who know her as the queen of #HANZOWEEN, reveling in the spooky season by creating tons of makeup-focused costumes and giving tips and tricks on YouTube. The Massachusetts-based artist also began live-streaming makeup tutorials on Twitch this year, giving even more access for fans to learn her techniques for themselves.
