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, 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. I love to know I have helped someone feel a more beautiful and confident 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.
A little about me… As well as my sixth wedding season, 2020 will also (hopefully) be the year myself and my fiance buy our first home ready for our wedding in December. I am wedding mad! I love a good Pinterest board and I have pictures saved in so many places on my phone! Scarborough has some beautiful wedding venues and I love to travel to surrounding areas to visit different venues. So please come and say hello to chat all things weddings and to discuss possible arrangements.
