2020 Convention and Print Comp Postponed
It is with an abundance of caution that PPA NJ has postponed the 2020 Convention and Print Competition
due to the Corona Virus Covid-19.
We will postpone for at least two to three months (maybe more), depending on knowing the extent of the virus in New Jersey. We will provide an update as soon as we have more information.
PPA NJ appreciates your understanding and continued support.

The 2020 PPANJ Annual Convention is here!
In 2014 Geniia was invited to work with award-winning photographer Tatiana Lumiere , which enabled her to travel nationally and attend exclusive workshops in which she demonstrated her makeup skills. Her artistic collaboration with Tatiana Lumiere’s photography received multiple awards with the WPPI, the world’s largest photography association.
Geniia has experience in fashion, theater, workshops, individual makeovers, weddings, and photoshoots. She is known for achieving flawless skin and a natural, sophisticated look for her wedding and portrait clients. Her strength is in her ability to bring out the natural beauty of every subject, regardless of gender or ethnicity. She is capable of achieving any desired look in a creative and professional way.
