Drawing her inspiration from art direction, music and the world around her, she loves to play with color and texture and enjoys blurring the lines between traditional and avant-garde takes on beauty. Her specialty is that clean skin or the ‘no-makeup’ look.

Jessie was drawn to beauty at a young age and used to mix her own makeup concoctions using a chemistry set she received as a gift. Having grown up with feminine style icons of the late 70’s and early 80’s, including women like Linda Carter, Joan Collins, Linda Evans, Grace Jones, and Cyndi Lauper, she developed a sense of beauty and style that was anything but subtle. Her teaching style is very interactive and she works one on one with students so they leave confident and full of new tips and tricks.

Jessie worked with MAKE UP FOR EVER since 2000, as the Managing Media Educator, she now runs her own successful business in Portland Oregon.
