Makeup by Jessalyn

Behind the magic wands

My name is Jessalyn I am 33 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 10  years (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.

As a makeup artist witnessing the impact that I have had on many of my clients gets me all emotioinal. One of the biggest compliments in my career is the amount of repeat clientele I have. The loyalty of my customers is truly something else.  A lot of people ask how I get my customers and surprisingly its all word of mouth. Referrals have been my greatest advertisement and it is humbling. It validates that the customer was happy with the work that I did for them. It also shows that they trust me to take care of the person they are referring as well.

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 enjoy spending time with my 2 black cats and my husband! We 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 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.

I'm also into fitness and I'm not just talking about fit-tin-this burger in my mouth! On the subject of food, I LOVE to cook I love food a lot and I'd say I'm pretty good at making it. I also love the ocean! I love summer I love boogie boarding with the husband. I love the salty air in my lungs. I love ocean life whale watching shark cage diving, just being one with the sea. If you have been following for a long time you'd know that I was once known as The Makeup Mermaid and I used to do blog posts, however, that is of the past, my schedule doesn't really allow it anymore and I figured makeup by Jessalyn was a better fit for business.
