As a makeup artist,

Jessica Reid is transforming Sky Ferreira for her roll in The Trust Starring Nicolas Cage & Elijah Wood.

Jessica Reid was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada. She grew up behind the scenes of the entertainment business, which brought her a greater understanding of the film industry as a whole.  Jessica has always been organized, business minded, and creative. She has continuously found a way to turn art into a business, starting at the age of 7.

Jessica’s most enduring creative passion started in her teens when she began experimenting with hair styles and hair color.  As a result, she won “Best Hair” three years in a row.  Friends began booking appointments to have their hair styled for school dances.  Hair artistry had become the new artistic passion.

Jessica was determined to have a career in business management.  After a number of successful retail jobs, she was asked to bring her organizational skills to restructure the Expendables Department of the family business. During this time, Jessica received her Associates degrees from the College of Southern Nevada in both Art and Business.

It became apparent that lighting and grip was not her passion.  It was time to resign and dive into the beauty world.  Jessica realized that she could combine her knowledge of the industry she’d been around her whole life, her business knowledge, and her desire to have a career in artistry.  Jessica enrolled at The Academy of Hair Design in Las Vegas, NV where she studied Cosmetology.

Jessica quickly began to turn her name into her brand once she received her cosmetology license. With Las Vegas being a smaller market, the need to expand into makeup artistry became apparent. She completed a course in beauty, media, and airbrush in Los Angeles. Upon return to Las Vegas, she received her first Key credits on the independent films “Rabbit Days” and “Pop Star Puppy”.  A few months later she received her first Department Head credit on the independent film, “Viena and the Fantomes”.

Jessica has continued to pursue her career in hair and makeup artistry, focusing on film and television production. Recent notable projects include “The Trust”, a feature film starring Nicolas Cage and Elijah Wood, and a few episodes of “Lopez”, a new show for TVLand.
