Meet the Artist

Hi! It's so nice to meet you! (virtually at least :). Thanks for popping by! A little info about me is below :). If you have any questions, I'd love to chat!

Jessica created Just Gorgeous! By Jessica in 2010 as a professional calling to pursue her lifetime passion for makeup and creativity. Though Jessica loves the color and application of makeup, her passion lies deeper than the surface; rather, makeup is an avenue to honor our natural beauty, rather than "covering it up" to look like a different, or more glamorous person. 

Jessica received professional certification through attending Media Makeup Academy in Chicago, and furthered her education by attending Kandee Johnson's Glaminar seminar in San Diego, California. Jessica also studied and collaborated with artist Rachel Reiman of Chicago. In addition to professional training, Jessica has practiced for hours on friends since she could hold a brush (no joke!) and has provided bridal services and fashion makeup for many clients in the Chicago area. She hopes to meet you too someday!
