JD Makeup Artistry
Be your own kind of beautiful.
My name is Jessica Mitchell and I am currently studying to become a Freelance Makeup Artist. From working with blushing brides helping them feel stunning on their big day, to mothers-to-be emphasizing their glow for maternity shoots, I look forward to working with client from all walks of life. My attention to detail and creative spark will help bring any dream to reality for whatever special occasion I can help you prepare for .
My love for makeup begun as a little girl secretly playing with my mothers extensive make up collection. As I grew up my desire to learn new things and practice only grew stronger. I never had the opportunity to study any proper makeup techniques until high school, however I always excelled in creative arts, paying close attention to detail, understanding colour theory and studying facial shapes. Due to my creative personality and phenomenal grades in all arts classes, I was asked along with a few other students to participate in a cosmetology pilot program my school wanted to start. We were given the opportunity to study hair, makeup and all other aesthetics during this program, which is now, due to our success in the pilot program, a full time program offered at the school. By the end of my high school career, I was assisting in teaching the course, gaining leadership credits, sharing my knowledge with other students in the newly formed program. After high school I had to put my love for cosmetology to the side and attended school for Social Service work. Fast forward 5 years, two beautiful baby girls and a loving fiancé later I finally decided to put my love for makeup closer to the top of my priority list. I now love what I do now and it never feels like work to me. I look forward to growing within this industry and helping my clients feel their best.
