The Change-Maker: JECCA Makeup's Jessica Blackler
Jessica Blackler is the founder of JECCA Makeup, which welcomes "all wearers who want to stand out from the crowd, feel confident, and celebrate their uniqueness." We are also blown away by the brand's fantastic dedication to shattering archaic cosmetic stereotypes (#MakeupHasNoGender).
As a makeup artist, you must roll your eyes at nonsense "beauty tips" that make the rounds. What's the most ridiculous bit of advice you've ever come across?
I believe every artist has different tips and ways of doing things, I was very fortunate to be trained by the top makeup artists in the industry and have worked alongside some fantastic people.
I do however see some beauty ‘tips’ on social media that I wouldn’t ever use. The most recent one is the eyebrow stencils; that’s an awful way of doing your eyebrows.
It's fantastic that your products are cruelty-free! Any particular reason you decided to go this route?
It’s very important to me (and to JECCA) not to use animal testing and to love our environment and animals.
Can you give us a peek into your makeup bag?
On a daily basis I don’t wear a lot of makeup but I do have must haves:
Anything else you'd like to add?
JECCA is introducing new shades in the next two months, so please follow us @jeccamakeup to keep tuned.
