Jessica is not only one of the most genuinely sweet girls I've met but she is talented beyond words. I met with her months before my wedding for a tan and makeup trial and I walked away so excited for the real deal the day of my wedding. I've been in 6 weddings before and had various beauty sessions but none like hers. She made my entire wedding party glow even more than they usually do and made me feel like a goddess. She is worth every penny and really loves what she does. I want more reasons and excuses to have her do my makeup again. Jessica is a true professional and cares about her work and the people she works on. Best "vendor" I've ever used. Thanks miss Jessica!!!

Jessica was exceptional - she is so sweet and was so easy to work with but most importantly, she did an AMAZING job!!! She did me, my bridesmaids, both moms, and a grandma. I have used her now three times, twice as a bridesmaid and once as a bride and each time I've used her, everyone was thrilled with the job that she did. I chose her because she perfectly masters the natural look, but can go as dramatic as you'd like too. I told her I wanted neutrals, but that on my eyes I like a big contrast between dark brown in the crease and white toward the inside, and she did exactly what I had in mind on the first try. It was exactly what I wanted, I loved it!! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for makeup, she is so versatile. She does air brush and false lashes that look amazing.

My bridesmaids and I ADORED Jessica. She is such a sweet person and amazing to work with. She came to our hotel the morning of the wedding and was so patient balancing us with our hair dressers. Our makeup looked fantastic (in person and in the photos); beautiful but not overdone. It also lasted all night. Even after a night of dancing, my eye makeup especially still looked AMAZING! SO glad we got to work with her :)

I recently had jess give me a spray tan and do my makeup for my homecoming. She was amazing!! The spray tan was exactly what I wanted and came out perfect, My makeup was very well done and matched my eyes and dress beautifully! She listened to what I wanted and made sure that I was comfortable with everything she did. I was so happy with the way she did everything and felt beautiful for homecoming. Jessica is super sweet and truly wants everyone to look beautiful and feel good about themselves on their special occasions. I would recommend Jessica to anybody!

Jessica not only did my make-up for my wedding, but my entire wedding party and what a bunch of stunners we were. She was punctual, professional and made us look absolutely....well.....gorgeous! We would have paid considerably more for the phenomenal work she did and how she got through us all, with the outstanding quality, I will never know. I highly recommend Jessica if you want to be the most lovely bride in exactly the style you request whether it's light and natural or heavier and eye catching. She's the right person for any time in your life that you want to look your best. I don't think I can upload a picture here to show you the proof, but there is no question who I will be calling for my next big event. Try her you'll love her. She's amazing.

Jess was professional, sweet, and talented. She did make up for several of the bridesmaids in a family wedding that I stood up in back in August. The eye make up was stunning and everyone got tons of compliments. She listened to each girls' preferences and style and did their make up accordingly. Everyone was very happy with the end result. Jess can make you look stunning on your big day!

Jessica was great, loved the makeup. Would definitely recommend her! Did many makeup trials, Jessica was the best by far!

I searched and searched for a makeup artist for my wedding day that would be professional but not cost a fortune! I tried one of the expensive groups from a wedding expo and they just were not worth the outrageous price tag and then I tried another freelance artist who was just not very professional (used pencil liner and I'm pretty sure I do my own everyday makeup better). Then I found Jessica through he Knot and have since referred her to two of my friends for their weddings (both of whom work in the beauty industry so they are even pickier than I am). Jessica is so talented and knows just what she's doing, but it's also like having your good friend do your makeup. She is such a calming presence on your wedding day, which is just what I needed (not to mention my makeu looked amazing). I cannot recommend Jessica enough and will continue to do so as my friends get married in Chicago!

Jess has been a friend since grade school and she continues to blow me away with her multitude of talents. From make-up to spray tans, I am convinced Jess can make any bride feel radiant. I always knew Jess embodied style from head to toe, but she completely blew me away on my big day. She listened to my desires and brought out the best in my natural qualities. Not only was she able to make me feel glamorous, but she also took care of four of my bridesmaids all while keeping me relaxed and comfortable. If you are looking for someone with incredible skills, a calming spirit, and a pure passion to share in your excitement on your big day, JUST CHOOSE JESS!

I've now seen Jessica perform magic at three weddings, one being my own. Not only is she crazy talented, but she is one of the easiest vendors to work with. You can tell she does what she does because she has a passion for making women feel beautiful! Prices are fair, she always shows up early and she genuinely listens to your wishes for make up on your wedding day!

I had Jess do my wedding party (and mine) make-up for our wedding in May and it was such a wonderful experience! From the trial tot he actual day, Jess was so professional, timely, and just a joy to work with! She is so sweet and really has an eye for making people look like their best self...my bridal party had a variety of beautiful women with different skin types and ethnicity and Jess was able to flawlessly make them all look unbelievable. I was a bridesmaid in another wedding that Jess did recently and once again had a great experience with her! I have recommended her to all of my friends and hope to see her at more events!

I met Jessica as a bridesmaids in my best friend's wedding. I knew I had to have her for my wedding too. She is beyond amazing! She is professional, sweet, and hands down the best make up artist I have ever had! I have gotten my makeup done in a lot of my friends weddings but none have done as great of a job as Jessica. She truly cares about what she does and it shows. I love the I looked like myself on my wedding day, but a very glamorous. And best of all my eyelashes stayed on all night which has never happened with false lashes before. Jessica is worth every penny and more!

Jessica did such a wonderful job for my wedding in September 2013. She did makeup for my sister, sister-in-law, mother, mother-in-law and myself. She was extremely focused on making sure each person was 100% happy. I loved the way my make up looked and it helped to make the day perfect.

Jessica did a phenomenal job! She truly made me look and feel like Cinderella on my wedding day. She is an absolute joy and I would definitely recommend her to anyone and everyone. Jessica made sure that I was perfectly okay with everything she did step by step and if I wanted something changed it was no big deal. She was so well prepared and I loved the fact that she was early showing up, that is huge for me, I love when people are on time! She is an incredible artist and I cannot thank her enough for how beautiful she made my big day!

Jessica did mine and my mom's makeup for my wedding this summer. She listened to my vision for my makeup and offered helpful suggestions without making me feel pressured. She came to our wedding location on time and finished both our makeup on time. She was very calm and professional and made us feel at ease. I would highly recommend her. Much more personal than going to a salon.

Jessica was the most amazing makeup artist I could have asked for for our special day. She was the sweetest, most kind person and made myself and my bridesmaids feel really comfortable. Our makeup looked amazing! She really listened to what we wanted and worked with our different makeup looks. My spray tan looked amazing and lasted over a week! It was the perfect shade, looking completely natural and not too dark. I can not praise her enough on the amazing job she did on our makeup and how incredibly nice and fun she was. I would recommend her to anyone!

Jessica was fantastic to work with and extremely reasonably priced. She was very reliable in her communication prior to the wedding via email, making hiring her stress-free. She was bubbly and pleasant to be around and made us all look impossibly beautiful in record time. Several bridesmaids said it was their favorite makeup they'd ever had. I woke up the next morning and it all looked just as good as it had the night before! She's brilliant! Hire her now!!!

Jessica did makeup for me, my mom and my maid of honor for my May, 2012 wedding. Everyone looked perfect! Jessica is very talented and my makeup lasted from 11am-2am when I finally was able to wash my face, thanks Jessica for helping me to look perfect for my wedding day!!
