MEET YOUR Make-Up Artist
From a young age Jess was always very artistic. From drawing little doodles on the un-carpeted wooden floors of her parents house, when she was a toddler, to growing up and painting cavases and pictures which now have pride of place on their walls, instead of just the floor.
Art was her favourite subject in school which she continued to do right through until college. One day, when her father noticed an advert in a newspaper advertising make-up design in a prestigious academy in London, she knew instantly that it was something she wanted to do. She lived and worked in London for the duration of the course and put all of her time and effort into gaining her qualification. During her spare time outside of the academy she also gained a lot of work experience in her field. She worked on many film and television sets and also fashion shows and theatre productions. She loves every type of make-up there is, so was able to help out in all areas confidently. Since then, Jess has gained more qualifications and turned her hand to more permanent styles of make-up by training within the semi-permanent make-up industry. She has gained qualifications in Microblading and AirbrushFX eyebrow enhancements. Who knows what else the future holds. Jess currently works for herself from her studio in Morriston, Swansea and is available for all of your make-up needs - permanent or otherwise.

Microblading is a cosmetic procedure that gives definition and structure to the brow area using hairlike strokes. This hair stroke technique implants pigment into the skin using a handheld tool called a microblade.
Microblading is more suited to healthy, normal to mildy oily skin types and can last anywhere between 1-2+ years depending on skin type, correct aftercare and lifestyle.
Powder-Ombre eyebrows are a cosmetic procedure that gives definition and structure to the brow area using a machine, similar to a tattoo device. Pigment is implanted into the skin by creating lots of tiny dots in the desired area and creates a more softly shaded result.
Powder-Ombre eyebrows are suited to all skin types and can be built up to any given result, depending on personal preference. They can last for 2+ years depending on skin type, correct aftercare and lifestyle.
