thumbnail (2)Jessica Padilla- fell in love with makeup backstage at a dance performance at the age of three and hasn’t stopped “playing” with makeup since. She has done make-up for NYC and Paris Fashion Week, TV, Film, Theater, Editorial and Commercial Photo shoots, Headshots, Weddings, and is a proud member of Local 798.

Jessica is a makeup maven who has an endless passion for her work and a curiosity to keep learning which has led to an in depth understanding of the makeup industry, various brands and products,  and the specialized requirements necessary for various jobs in different arenas.  Jessica also teaches women of all ages the art of makeup and how it applies to their individual needs.  Coming to makeup as a performer herself, she has a flair for the theatrical and time period specific creations, but can also deliver the basics of beautiful skin and clean beauty. Jessica currently freelances throughout NYC but can’t wait to see where her artistry will lead her next.
