Discovered in Cleveland, Ohio at 15, Matthew started his career in Los Angeles as a model. With several years of modeling all over the world under his belt, an artist at heart, he got the bug and fell in love with make-up and set out to follow his true passion. Along the way he found himself running the top nightclubs across the country such as The Abbey in Los Angeles, Paris Cafe in Chicago and Club Cafe in Boston.
For over 16 years Matthew Jarrell has been a dynamic force in the avant-garde and creative world of international make- up artistry. After a successful relationship with Lancome that lasted over 2 years he went his own way and perfected his skills as an international freelance artist working on famous celebrities such as Jennifer Aniston, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Marc Wahlberg, Lenny Kravitz, Betsy Johnson, Marc Jacobs and many more. A true heavyweight in the industry, he has also been behind the creative
looks of countless models in Asia, Europe and all over North America for fashion shows, many different commercial and editorial campaigns, and TV and film productions. After a meteoric rise to fame and the Style Network proclaiming him at 27 to be “one of the most successful stylists under thirty” he is currently residing in Cleveland and back with Lancome. Glad to be back with the company that gave him his start and allows him to work creatively and passionately doing what he loves best, transforming faces and lives through makeup, he has never been happier!!!
