Emmy Award-Winning Makeup Artist & Breast Cancer Survivor Whose Experience Changed Her Perspective on Beauty

With almost 30 years in show business, Emmy Award-winning makeup artist Jan Ping has worked on some of the most famous faces in the world including Sean Connery, Betty White, and Cindy Crawford. She has worked many different formats from talk shows, talent competitions, movies, episodics to photo shoots and live TV.

Ping, a former actress and print model, was diagnosed with stage II breast cancer and said it completely changed her perspective on beauty. That experience, which she describes as “endlessly profound,” changed her life forever.

Now, a cancer survivor herself, Ping enjoys teaching the practicalities to cancer patients, both privately and in classes. From skills to keeping skin hydrated to how to compensate with corrective makeup for the discoloration caused by chemotherapy, Ping shares all of her expertise and life experience to others in an emotional and impactful way.

After winning her own fight against cancer, Jan won an Emmy Award in 2007 for her work on the first two seasons of the "Tyra Banks show."

Ping now continues to work in television and also enjoys speaking at conferences discussing the emotional effects cancer treatment can have on one's self image, in addition to keynote speaking.
