She’s a former tomboy turned glam maker… He’s an artist, pushing the limits with any medium he can find… the beauty divinities unveiled the destiny for wife/husband Gina and Josh to also partner up as a compelling hair and makeup team.
Gina left her accounting pedigree to pursue her love of makeup, working with some of the industry’s finest brands including Christian Dior, M·A·C, Stila, Laura Mercier and Bobby Brown. After honing her skills with various product formulations and a clientele representing all faces and skin-types, Gina launched GP Makeup in 2007. A loyal clientele and solid reputation kept Gina in high demand, ultimately leading her to meet Josh.
An avid drawer and painter since childhood, Josh was eager to translate his love of art to the face. His approach and innate gift brings a complementing edge to their work together. In 2012, the couple relaunched the company as GP Exclusives, a full-service beauty collective, including an in-house production company to capture every flawless moment.
Their portfolio represents a vast range of styles and capabilities, from natural looks to special effects and all brush strokes in between. Their international clientele is equally diverse, representing leading fashion designers Elie Tahari, Betsy Moss, Lila Nikole; celebrity productions for Jennifer Lopez, Ne-Yo, Pitbull, Rick Ross, Spike Lee, Vivica Fox; print and broadcast shoots for Elle, Marie Claire, Maxim, Vogue Italia, Ocean Drive, Bravo Network, Telemundo, Google TV; bridal parties of all sizes, as well as the everyday woman who wants to elevate her style. Among all, Gina and Josh are revered for their ability to truly listen, interpret, and actualize what their respective clients want.
Gina and Josh continue to create from their new studio in Wynwood, where they fuse their beauty services alongside other curated artistic genres inspired by the neighborhood. The duo most recently launched GP Exclusives Academy that attracts both aspiring and established makeup artists. The ongoing program comprises of seminars, tutorials, and other education platforms that impart the latest practices, techniques, and insider tips honed from their personal expertise.
