Lera Juno has been inspired by makeup from a very young age. Growing up in the 1980's and a serious music lover, she was inspired by the looks of Prince, Bowie, Madonna and Duran Duran. As she got older and dabbled in all kinds of artistic mediums (paint, photography, sculpture), she realized her true love of makeup. She started doing makeup after high school in 1994 with a small natural products company in the suburbs of Philadelphia and moved onto a career that has led her all over the US, most of her time spent between New York and Philadelphia. Lera relocated to Sarasota, Florida in 2012 and it hasn't slowed her down one bit. She can also be found working in production (film, video and live television), as well as a brand representative for several high-end cosmetic companies. When not creating in the makeup field, Lera enjoys trying to be a better cook, learning how to not kill all the plants she buys, beating her husband and his friends in fantasy football, and hugging her Shiba Inu, Leeloo.
