All shots, Jesseca Jade - Mega Models, Miami. Makeup and Hair, Jonathan Rebolledo
With a great new face available it's hard not to ask one of my favorite makeup artists to come over for some beauty work. Jonathan Rebolledo had not met Jesseca, but they immediately became new best friends. Jonathan's like that, I call him "Party in a Box" because he makes all the girls (particularly the new faces) feel relaxed and beautiful. Jonathan's always been a wonderful makeup artist, but when we first started working together, his idea of doing hair was basically emptying a can of hair spray and scrunching the girl's hair with his hands. No more, he has all the tools and he knows how to use them.
(A quick sidebar: Jonathan saved a catalog shoot I was doing two weeks ago. One of the models had come from an earlier assignment and was not in the best of moods to begin with. My client was dragging the shoot out and as a result she was almost out the door when Jonathan took over. He spent some time with her and put her in such a great frame of mind that the later shots actually looked better than the first ones we did. Any professional photographer on assignment is lucky to have someone on his team who knows how to pour oil on those troubled waters, I'm sure the shooters who have had to work with several models at once on location are familiar with these situations.)
Jesse has been doing tests with photographers the agency has set up for her and as befits a young new face, she has been shooting a lot of clean, almost no makeup pictures. She has such great skin that is more than appropriate, but I wanted to do a stronger look just to see how it would change her appearance. Anyway, here are the results. I'm going to submit these along with a story I've been working on to a couple of Florida magazines to see if we can't get them published.
Jesseca really is an amazing person, if she can learn to handle the distractions here in South Beach I expect her to be one of the top girls in fashion very quickly.
