Interview with a Beauty
Where do you see yourself as a model in five years?
Established comfortably in LA with my own brand, so definitely stay tuned.
What is the meaning behind your favorite tattoo?
I love them all. If I had to choose one, my elephant, represents my grandmother that raised me and till this day is my number one fan(:
Tell us a little about your passion as a makeup artist?
Well I’m a 5 year certified Makeup and Special FX Artist. Worked with Sephora for 3 years. Now Manage my own beauty company KwnJess & Co. offering services from application to education in Makeup, Hair, Photography, and Lifestyle. I travel when needed and specialize in Skincare. This month I celebrate a successful year of work with KwnJess & Co.
What is the funniest thing that’s happened to you on a modeling set?
Lol ok, one of my sets I accidentally put my bottoms on inside out didn’t realize till they were finalized and edited… But you will never know which bwahahaha (;
Name a hidden talent you have that not many know about?
I’m a fantastic Cook and Baker, Chef Jess is what I go by in my circle. The kitchen is my Zen area.
What is your biggest pet peeve?
Don’t beat around the bush with me, clarity is what we need in this world of uncertainty. Spread kindness, never use your words to cause harm, choose them carefully.
Would you rather go out on a Saturday night or stay in and chill?
I’m always chilling, unless its a special occasion or event. you can catch me in my comfy clothes, working from home trying to grow and build myself in some way… Buy me Chinese food and let’s talk about life, listen to music, watch Bones, or read to each other all night(:
If we asked your best friend to use three words to describe you, what would they be?
Depends who you ask… Combined Genuine, honest, and selfless. Straight from all 3 of my besties DM, love you! (:
