Bio

Jessica Yolanda Hernandez was born in Detroit, MI into a musical family, which moved to California to pursue the  family business (music).  She lived there until she was 13, and then moved back to Detroit, MI where she attended high school and eventually college.  After college, Jessica moved back to San Diego, but realized her heart was in the east coast and has since spent her time between New York and Detroit.
“I grew up in a family where artistic ability and originality were praised.  In my household, artistic talent and ability were just as important as scholastics.  My family nurtured my creative spirit and in an environment where everyone was amazingly gifted I came to expect the same of myself.”  Jessica studied fine arts and graphic design for four years and found that she excelled greatly at anything that involved creating with her hands.  She soon found that artistic ability and an entrepreneurial spirit came naturally .  She continued to build on her natural talents and abilities which put Jessica, on a path that led to a career as a Makeup Artist.

Makeup always came naturally to Jessica and it was something that she loved to experiment with.  “I loved the power it gave me to recreate myself and the control it gives you over your own appearance. While it was just a hobby for me I didn’t know what was possible.  I didn’t know what my options would be, or if it was a lucrative career.  I really wasn’t sure what the limitations were and how far I could go.”  After all the support from friends and family, Jessica started looking into makeup artistry, and realize that she could make a career out of something that  she loved to do.

Jessica’s background in the arts has had a profound influence in everything she does as a makeup artist.  “It affects everything I do from the way I hold my brushes  and manipulate products, to my composition, balance, use of color, and even the way I look at things.  Being an artist taught me how to view everything critically, how to dissect everything I see and then be able to regurgitate it with my own perspective and sensibilities.”

As an accomplished and creative makeup artist, Jessica displays her mastery for creating “the look”.  She has had great success in all aspects of media makeup, including film, television, video and print.  Her training and  multifaceted talents along with her amiable personality allow her to provide her clients with a level of professionalism that adds to the success of any team or production.
