Comfortable & Beautiful.. what more could you want!
Jess was so kind and quick with her reply for a seemingly last minute inquiry. I had other services scheduled around her appointment, and she was willing to work with me on this. She did not make me feel anything but comfortable, and just was a true natural at what she does. Also, she seems to have a vast knowledge and makeup choices, no matter what your style. I received so many compliments on my makeup, and it truly felt like I had nothing on my face. Sometimes airbrushing can feel somewhat heavy, and everything felt light and flawless. I highly recommend Jess for your bid day :)Sent on 05/31/2021

If you don’t book Jess, you’re missing out!
Jess was amazing! She applied makeup for myself and several family members. She was very responsive and answered all my questions. She was on time and set up before I even arrived at the venue. She made everyone feel comfortable with their choice in makeup and felt like a friend. I felt gorgeous, and my makeup held up even after doing pics in 95 degree weather. Like I said, if you don’t chose Jess as you MUA, you truly are missing out.Sent on 06/22/2021

Jess was nothing short of amazing. She was great to work with. Scheduling was very easy and she was super responsive. She took the time to listen to exactly what I wanted and seemed to genuinely care about making it look just the way I wanted. She was also super understanding and accommodating when I needed to bring my son along(I lovvve businesses that are family friendly) her personality also radiates so you feel super comfortable sitting in her chair. Her application skills are top notch. I looked amazing and the makeup lasted through the entire event(outside in the hot sun) and into the night. I was super impressed as usually I have to blot my face. I also have sensitive skin and the products she uses did not cause any irritation to it. I would highly recommend her to anyone else and I will definitely be using her again for any of my makeup needsSent on 06/24/2021

I've loved makeup ever since my first Dr.Pepper Lip Smackers!
In doing makeup professionally since 2014, I have learned how to work with all skin types, tones and ages. I use water based, naturally flawless airbrush pigment that is suitable for all skin types. There is nothing I love more than making people feel beautiful on their special days!
I always knew I would want to combine my love of all things beauty with my entrepreneurial spirit. This led me to Ball State University where I earned a business degree in Entrepreneurial Management. I then went to the Aveda Fredric's Institute and obtained my cosmetologist license. I've done makeup professionally ever since, and it is an absolute dream come true! I have also worked and trained with high end makeup brands such as Urban Decay, Too Faced, It Cosmetics, Lacome, Smashbox, & Tarte - among many others!
When I'm not painting faces, I’m spending time with my full house which includes my husband, son, son’s uncle, three cats, and two dogs! It’s a loud house but it’s also full of love <3
