About the Speaker

When she was a little girl in Buenos Aires, Argentina, the beauty rituals of Gabriela Hernandez’s older relatives fascinated her. The Burbank-based artist spent years studying vintage cosmetics and after graduating from Art Center College of Design, she began designing makeup packaging. She authored the book Classic Beauty: The History of Makeup,  and in 2004 she produced her version of a 1920s lipstick, launching and started her own cosmetics company, Bésame Cosmetics. Today the company manufactures mascara, lipstick, and powders; offers period beauty classes; and runs a boutique where patronsincluding makeup designers on period films and TV showscan immerse themselves in the charms of earlier generations.

Help Us Continue Our Digital Efforts

Since opening over 10 years ago, we have sought to make the museum a place where our guests could find animation, innovation, and inspiration and immerse themselves in the remarkable life story of Walt Disney—the man who raised animation to an art, tirelessly pursued innovation, and created a distinctly American legacy, transforming the entertainment world.

Over the course of our closure, we have increased our digital presence to stay true to our mission. Your donations ensure that we can continue opening our museum virtually to the world, and that future generations can continue to be inspired by Walt Disney’s life and legacy.
