Today we’d like to introduce you to Jessica Marie.
Hi Jessica Marie, we’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
Hi, My name is Jessica Marie and I am a Professional Makeup Artist, Influencer and Global Beauty Guide for LimeLife by Alcone.
I have been in the industry for well over 11 years now. My introduction into Makeup Artistry started a little after 2010. I had been watching and learning from my Mother growing up as she was a Plus-Size Model. She sometimes would have to do her own makeup and didn’t trust many on her face. I then took what I learned from her and applied it, kept practicing on myself and others. I took plenty of classes from other Pro Makeup Artists, attended Pro Shows and it just grew from there.
Being connected to the Plus Sized Community as a Plus Sized Woman myself had led me into doing Makeup backstage for most of the Plus Size Fashion Shows in the DMV Area, Models and photographers. I was even blessed with the major role of Lead Makeup Artist for a few of those same Shows. Yes, I have done celebrities and authors that have come to the area but I don’t like to claim that title. Celeb or not, once you leave my chair, you will definitely feel like one.
A year before the pandemic hit, I added an extension to my business by becoming a Global Independent Beauty Guide for LimeLife by Alcone which is a Professional Skincare and Makeup Company owned by Alcone Co. A Professional Makeup Company based in NYC that has supplied Professional Artists like myself with Pro Products and Supplies since 1952. Since I was teaching others how to do simple everyday looks and growing tired of sending clients to different stores to get products and oftentimes other associates interfering with recommendations ….It just made sense to become a Beauty Guide for LimeLife by Alcone. So, the same products that I use on my clients and even use on myself now my clients can purchase those same items from me and don’t even have to leave the house. I’m something like being your all-around Beauty Bestfriend!
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
It definitely has not been an easy or smooth ride at all. The pandemic has caused me to pivot more. Challenges are always there. In the beginning, the challenges were networking, financing and marketing. Greatest lesson learned was staying true to my work and staying in my lane. Now, I have truly found my tribe and it is continually growing.
As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work.

My enhancement looks are very neutral looking with a pop of GLAM either at my location or your location. That is what I am known and consistently booked for.
