Thank you for taking the time to browse my profile and view my work to date. I am looking to Collaborate as much as i can over the next few months so please contact even if i cant straight away i will do my best to make time.
I am a young, innovative and aspiring makeup artist currently residing in London, I have so far trained for four years firstly on an amazing course in Swindon and continued my visual make up artistry studies at the renowned West Thames College in London, apoligies if I don't get back to you straight away I do my best to keep checking messages, on request I will give you my email for an easier method of contact.
I am currently looking for firsthand experience within an array of work, I love all different styles of makeup from the 40s to obscure and abstract to the sublimely alterative and horror tinged genres and I am extremely passionate about each job at hand. I will always perform my own active research prior to each job to make sure that both the subject and I get the very best out of our time together.
I will try my hand at any style of makeup and I can also perform body painting art as well. My favourite type to do is a unique cartoon look or theatrical and can also offer airbrushing as part of my services, though this would need to be planned in advance to ensure I have obtained the relevant equipment and have had a sufficient amount of time for prep work.
At this point in my career I am looking to work with Models, Designers, Theatre, TV, Photographers, Promo Events and even Group Shoots.
I am currently available for work on a TP basis if I think that the project is of interest to me and will benefit my portfolio and personal goals, all i ask is for 2-5 good head shots and some full shoots aswell as these help my portfolio best. I thrive on a challenge and appreciate working with those who want to push boundaries and really create something versatile and eye catching. I also love to work on the classic and simple looks and can guarantee an efficient, reliable, friendly, professional and well prepared shoot.
I am willing to travel to you or a specific location on request and depending on the job and how far i need to go i generally need some help with travel, though at the same time will certainly not turn down any paid work.
If you have any questions or are interested in working with me I would be delighted to hear from you. Apologies my profile needs some new pictures but time has been a little sparse i will update ASAP
****Reviews From Previous Shoots****
"Jessica did makeup for our fashion shoot, we found her extremely professional, hard working, punctual and she produced a great work.
I had a great first shoot with Jessica-Kate. Despite suffering car trouble on the way to my studio she persevered and still came! She was very easy going and full of good ideas in terms of make-up and after she's been to Uni I see her skills going from strength to strength.
I really enjoyed working with Jess. First she did some really beautiful shimmery makeup which made me look like a film star. But after a few shots were done of that, she didn't hesitate in getting to work with the FX which involved ripping all my clothes and covering me (and herself to some extent) in fake blood and cuts. The transition from clean to muddy, bloody and bruised HORROR film star did not take long and the effects were amazing! She is a great person to work with, recommended.
Thank you for the shoot today.he make-up was gorgeous and it was really nice chatting with you. You're really easy to work with and I hope we'll collaborate again :)
