Hello, my name is Jess, and I am a professional freelance makeup artist based in the seaside town Scarborough, North Yorkshire.
In 2013 I qualified as a beauty therapist, and through the summer I enrolled at Bath Academy of Media Makeup where I was taught by numerous renowned makeup artists on the fashion, bridal and beauty makeup course. It was here my passion for creating bespoke bridal makeup flourished.
My style is very natural, and I knew this from the beginning of my training. I love to meet brides-to-be who never wear any makeup or very minimal on a day-to-day basis and amaze them with what makeup can do, how it can define and highlight their natural features. Yet, working with other makeup artists early in my career, I soon understood that makeup is also very significant to every individual and can show off their personality. So whether it is working to create a flawless base, adding a little shimmer and sparkle to the eyes, or going all out with a glamorous winged eyeliner and red lip, I love to know I have helped someone feel a more beautiful version of themselves, for one of the most special days of their lives.
As well as a love for makeup, I am highly passionate about the beauty industry, especially skincare products! I truly believe a good skincare routine creates the perfect base for makeup. I am always trying out and researching products for myself and my kit, as well as offering advice and recommending products and regimes to my clients, which I believe will enhance their complexion and everyday routines.
Over the past five years most of my brides have got married in Scarborough and the surrounding areas, however, I am happy to travel further across North Yorkshire, so if you have any other questions or would like to discuss possible arrangements, just come and say Hello!
