Getting married soon? If so, this Texas born Chicagoan is who you need to call, for all of your beautifying needs!! Jessica is a Makeup Artist, as well as a Beauty and Lifestyle Blogger. She has liked make-up for as long as she can remember, and is motivated by the ability to do what she wants to do with her time; no corporate control here! (#IssaBOSS)
So how did Jessica get into make-up? Around the age of 4 or 5, Jessica’s Grandmother started buying her makeup kits for kids called, “Tinkerbell.” Not only were these gifts Jessica’s introduction into the makeup world, it paved the way for her passion. For Jessica, she had found something she liked, and her Grandmother did everything she knew to feed her passion and talent. (Now that’s love!)
As she began wearing makeup as an adult, Jessica noticed that getting glammed up made her feel better, which then made her decide to assist in making people look and feel beautiful.
Initially, Jessica faced the difficulty of support and believing in herself, but that did not last for long!! Once she realized that she could really turn her passion into a job, she stopped seeing limits. (Boom!) Though Jessica has an amazing support base, she is still her own biggest fan.
“If you’re interested in becoming a make-up artist, I would just say practice and perfect your craft. While learning the art, don’t forget the business. Make sure you’re able to give your clients an all-around professional experience.”
Jessica’s favorite look to do is “Bridal” and here’s why,
“First of all, I find it truly humbling that a bride trusts me to enhance their beauty on one of the biggest days of her life. I like bridal makeup because it lives forever! Your wedding photos are a forever keepsake and my art is a part of that.”
In general, most of Jessica’s clients prefer natural glam, which is her specialty! Even though she specializes in natural glam, Jessica states that both natural and glam looks have their appropriate times and occasions. But don’t worry ladies, as Jessica can deliver any look requested. Jessica provides various services and packages, such as bridal packages, prom and homecoming services, and any other occasion requested service, within reason, can be accommodated.
“I always advise my clients to invest in a good moisturizer. Also, no matter how much you love your makeup look, you have to wash it off at the end of the night. I cannot stress this enough. Do not sleep in your makeup! Always take care of your skin because flawless makeup starts with flawless skin.”
“If I could style my celebrity idol’s look for a day, it would be Naturi Naughton because she’s gorgeous! Lol! And I love her skin tone.”
Make-up isn’t the only service that Jessica provides, as she does product reviews and beauty related content on her YouTube channel and blog. (Yasss!!) Be sure to keep an eye out for Jessica, as you may see her at an event or show near you!
