Hi! my name is Jessica. I never thought I could do make up, the best I would do is a bad eyeliner and a terribly bright blush. I got into Ru Paul's drag race and was absolutely in awe of these men turning into gorgeous women and just needed to know what they used, how they used it and what kind of things could actually be created.
I threw myself into the makeup world, collecting products just so I could see them, feel them, play with them and see what they could create. I actually got called out by a makeup artist who got mad at me because she was a professional makeup artist, so how dare I even consider my work art, it was quite insulting, but I hate to ruffle tail feathers, so instead I decided to figure out how to become a makeup artist!

I found QC career school and really enjoyed the professional layout and the types of programs they offered, so I just had to do it! As a mom of three and a CEO of a large tourist organization the online program worked well with my chaotic life.
I am unsure where I want my makeup career to take me, but I know I love it and just want to learn and explore everything!
