The Beauty Bible: Jessica Speight Permanent Make Up
Morning gorgeous ones, Happy FriYay!
I hope you’re all looking forward to the weekend – what are your plans?
We’re hard at work here at The Wedding Affair prepping for another gorgeous show this Sunday at the chic Deighton Lodge. And, whilst we’re neck high in gift bags, confetti and just about running off caffeine we thought it was only right to introduce you to this lovely lady, Jessica, as part of this weeks Beauty Bible feature.
JS Semipermanent Make Up will actually be exhibiting with us at Oulton Hall, an opulent venue near Leeds (you may also recognise from Leyla and Pete’s wedding in Emmerdale!). Anyhow, as you may have already gathered, Jess specialises in semi-permanent and permanent make up; creating beautiful and natural bridal looks for your special day.
Of course, semi-permanent make up is something that not many of us actually know about, and are quite often not informed of the different procedures. So, to help out a little we’re going to pass you over to Jess to tell us a little more about her business, the processes and her passion for make-up… Pst, there’s a great offer for you girls to snap up in there, too!
Tell us a little bit about you and what made you start up your company. Are there any highlights in your career that are special to you either professionally or personally?
“Hi Im Jess, a 27 year old permanent makeup artist from Leeds and the owner of JS semi permanent makeup.
I have always been a creative person and loved makeup, art and any thing that requires a lot of patience and detail. I wanted to train as a permanent makeup artist for years before I decided to take the plunge, but never had the means to do so. I needed a career change 2 years ago and finally decided it was time to go for what I really wanted to do! A personal highlight within my career would definitely be the first few times I had a great customer review, I take my work very personally and it’s a great feeling to hear that you’re work has made someone feel amazing.”
What makes you different and inspires Brides/Grooms to book your services or purchase your products. For example, do you have a particular style or theme, what materials and colours have you used?
“The style of my work is unique within the industry. I specialise in natural permanent makeup which involves a measured shape and colouring which is tailored to every individual client.
I am also the only semi permanent makeup artist in the north of the UK that is a recommended wedding supplier. My style of work also gives a fantastic natural finish which caters beautifully for wedding photography… head over to my instagram page @js_semi_permanent_makeup, to see examples of my work, I do not use ring lighting or filters on any of my photos so that you can see how JS semi permanent makeup looks in natural light.”
Is there anyone in the industry or in the World for that matter, that inspires you and gives you a sense of direction:
“There are plenty of people within the industry that are extremely talented and that I admire, however I try not to focus too much energy on my peers and their work. My real inspirations are my clients… I get to work with so many great ladies and they are the ones that really give me a sense of direction and satisfaction.”
What type of Venue, Style of Wedding or Theme would suit your products or services and why?
“JS semi permanent makeup would be relevant to any bride that would like long lasting makeup effects throughout her wedding celebrations, honey moon and beyond. Furthermore, this would be relevant to any mother of the bride or groom that would like to look fab for the big day; good permanent makeup can give better lift results than botox in a lot if cases, which makes it very desirable.”
Can you tell our Brides/bridal party what is available?
“Semi Permanent eyeliner, lip and brow makeup is available not only for the bride, but is also incredibly suitable for ‘mother of the bride’ or ‘mother of the groom’.
You can contact me regarding a query for your self or alternatively, you can also gift a treatment as a thank you to your mother in law or your own mum. This is certainly a unique gift idea, so get in touch, as I have a range of elegant JS semi permanent makeup gift box vouchers available for you to purchase.
The unique gift boxes do not stop there… HD browmaid boxes are also available for to purchase for your bridesmaids, which is a unique way of saying thank you. You can contact me for more information regarding these.”
Do you have any exclusive offers for Wedding Affair attendees or subscribers?
“Yes, any one that subscribes to my mailing list via my website home page or likes my facebook page @JS Semi Permanent Makeup, will receive bridal discounts of up to 10%. The same will be offered to wedding fair attendees.
It’s definitely worth a subscribe and like if permanent makeup is something you are interested in and would like to make a huge savings on, for either yourself or as a gift.”
What do you love about weddings, what makes you get up in the morning and do you have any stories to tell or embarrassing moments:
“I love the excitement that comes with the planning of the whole event, the preparation to make sure the bride looks sensational for her big day, and the work that goes into making everything personal and perfect for each couple.
I do have a wedding related embarrassing story actually; I was a bridesmaid a few years ago for a friend, and after the ceremony had finished, the bride and groom began to exit the church and all the bridesmaids proceeded to follow one by one. The bridesmaid who was to follow after me, accidently stood on my dress as I was trying to leave the pew, so I fell head first into the aisle, with the whole of the wedding party watching! Certainly wasn’t my finest moment! So cringe worthy! ha!”
If you were to offer three tips to a Bride/Groom, on planning their wedding, what would they be?
- Leave yourself contingency time for planning; you can never be too prepared
- Enjoy you planning, I know at times it can be stressful; but often when you look back on your wedding; you’ll reminisce about the whole experience and days out you had looking at venues etc. These days are also precious memories too, so enjoy them!
- Make sure that everything you choose for you big day is to your taste, it is easy to feel overwhelmed and allow other people to influence your decisions, take you time when making big decisions for the day.
Where should Brides/Grooms go to find out more information? Are you looking for further stockists and if so, in which areas?
