My name is Jessica Kesby and I am a makeup addict.
I have had a passion for all things beauty since I got my hands on my Mum’s red lipstick at the age of 5.
Art and design has always been a strong focus through both my educational and personal life. It is something I had always considered to be the dream career, playing with pretty colours and textures for a living, until I found my forte in makeup artistry.

I have attended a Professional Make Up Artistry Course with the Illamasqua School of Make up Art in London where I have been trained by tutors with a lifetime of experience. The knowledge I gained on the course was invaluable and has already seen me progress miles in my career in a short space of time.
I am a self-confessed brow addict, I’m obsessed with everything brows. I just can’t get enough of them. I always make it one of my missions to leave my clients coming out of their sessions with brows “on fleek”.
Instagram has been a very strong influence in driving me to pursue this career. I have followed the likes of Lora Arellano and Dana Bomar from their freelance careers to the launch of their own brand Melt Cosmetics and becoming tour artists for the likes of Rihanna. It has proven to me that dreams really can come true and has given me the drive to be the best artist I can be.
