Makeup by Jessalyn
Behind the magic wands
My name is Jessalyn I am 34 and I grew up in the state of Live Free or Die! I am still based out of NH. I love art in general, and making up faces has been a great way for me to utilize my creativity. I still paint from time to time when I actually have time. I have been working as a free lance makeup artist in the New England area for almost 15 years now! (or over 30 years if you count using my Moms makeup to dazzle my dolls when I was a babe)
Most of the makeup I do is for weddings and special events, which I love because it's an honor to be a part of someone's important day. It is my passion to make women feel beautiful! Confidence is key! When you feel good about yourself I feel that you can conquer anything! The most rewarding aspect of my career has been the fact that I've helped to build the confidence of so many women that I have worked with.
Aside from weddings I work regularly with Kreativ Studios in NH as their key make-up artist as well as Caroline Talbots in MA where I am their lead gal as well! During my years in college I was into theatrical makeup. I give them the credit for when my roots and makeup got planted and my passion for makeup really bloomed! I tell everyone theater makeup came first "pretty people makeup" came second, and its true!! It was after college that I had worked for Lancome then MAC then on my own!
When I'm not making up faces I am a part time esthetician at Dolce Vita Salon and Spa in Windham NH I do lash extensions, dermaplaning facials, waxing, spray tanning ect. basically anything that you'd need to get done before a big event I do!
When I put my brushes down I am Mommin! I had a baby during the pandemic his name is Bodee!! We also have two cats, Townie and Stella whom you'll most likely meet if we work together in the future and if we've worked together in the past you've most likely met them, they are my other babies. I will take them out on their leashes or in their stroller. If you are thinking I am a crazy cat lady I'm thinking you might be right.
