Hi! I’m Jill and I’m an experienced and dedicated professional NYC based Makeup Artist. I’ve been told having me on set helps make a production go smoother. I have over nineteen years of professional makeup and on set experience. I book frequently for broadcast television, television commercials, makeup for high definition video, photography, test reels, network and local news, headshots and You Tube series's, live events including makeup for talent and emcees for concerts, comedy shows, fashion runway and red carpet preparation for award shows & movie premieres. Whew, that's a mouthful.
I've been the Key Makeup Artist on local and national projects. Directors appreciate my ability to work quickly to create clean, camera ready looks. I have a way of making someone look natural while wearing the appropriate kind of makeup for each job. I enjoy a good reputation for on set professionalism and promptness. I'm helpful, patient and “go with the flow.” I help nervous talent feel calm and relaxed with positive energy and a gentle touch. Talent & professionalism is what I bring to my work and as such I prefer to work with organized and talented producers/directors. I find that good, clear, prior communication is key. I also do light hairstyling: curling, straightening, smoothing, putting it up, etc. I am also willing to help out in other capacities of production if requested of me, within reason.
Available for travel outside of New York and internationally.
Extensive experience in corporate headshots and video projects for prominent companies & philanthropic organizations.
