With 10 years professional makeup artistry experience, Jillian B provides on site makeup services for every occasion. Jillian's love of makeup began when she was on the dance team in high school. She loved applying makeup on herself and her fellow teammates before games. In college, she started by selling Mark makeup by Avon to help earn extra money while going through college. Jillian continued to practice makeup on her fellow sorority sisters for events and learned she had a true talent and passion for makeup and makeup application.
After college, Jillian took a job in the field she studied and worked as a paralegal. After a year, she soon realized she missed doing makeup and making people feel beautiful so she decided to follow her heart and change careers. A part time opportunity came about at MAC Cosmetics in 2007 and from there she worked her way up to management and developing trainer for 9 years. Jillian was sent to NY Fashion week every season and worked on shows such as Thom Brown, Valentino, Carmen Marc Valvo, Theory, Carolina Herrera, Ohne Title, and Nicholas K to name a few. Jillian was also in charge of teaching classes for MAC Cosmetics for their new hired employees as well as teaching seasonal updates to the tenured artists.
Jillian then moved on to opening her own business in 2015 and opened a studio in her home taking clients by appointment as well as providing on site services in clients homes, hotels and venues.
Soon after, Jillian was approached to take on the opportunity to manage the Cosmetics Department at a high end department store. She managed the counter managers for numerous brands such as Estee Lauder, Clinique, Lancome, Bobbi Brown, Dior, Chanel, MAC, Inglot and Impulse Beauty. Her knowledge of all makeup brands and experience in managing artists made this a perfect fit. After a few years Jillian loved managing but missed being hands on with clients and being behind the chair doing what she does best-making people look and feel beautiful.
