I was born and raised in the beautiful Blue Mountains, NSW Australia. I nurtured a passion for arts, creativity and style at a young age. (Some styles can stay in the vault!) When I was old enough I moved to Sydney and took in all that this cosmopolitan city could offer.
After a many years living in that wonderful city, I met the love of my life. A great story if you ever want to hear it. :) Alas, he is an American so a decision on a location had to be made. I decided to pack up and move to an even larger wonderful city and marry. During this time I was finding my direction and started using my creativity and art painting faces. This was a remarkable moment for me as I knew this is what I wanted to do but didn't know how great it would be. I studied and became certified in facial artistry at a leading Long Island beauty institute. Then 'Jesella Beauty' was born. Now, in its 6th year, it is going wonderfully and I continue to learn and create new styles as I go.
My goal as a make-up artist is to enhance a person's natural beauty, not to hide it. It gives me great pleasure to see my client exude confidence as she leaves my chair. There are so many different styles of make-up and there are plenty of examples here and on my Facebook page. Please check it out, like my page and share with your friends!
When I work with a client I always recommend a trial as it is during this time I get to meet you, understand what you want and make that vision a reality. It also makes you more confident that you picked the best person for the job. My work speaks for itself!
I hope I get to meet you and be a part of your special day.
