MODERN BEAUTY: Photo-perfect makeup with a personal touch

All brides want to be beautiful. That’s why they call on Jessica Nagel to give them a flawless appearance that’s picture perfect.

Jessica, owner of Modern Beauty, is a cosmetologist based in Sioux City who specializes in air-brushed cosmetics. Jessica utilizes the highest-quality products – high-definition, professional-grade, camera-ready makeup that photographs flawlessly. Though it sounds glamorous enough for a runway, air-brushed makeup can suit any bride or special occasion.

Customized Makeup

Some brides prefer a dramatic smoky eye and red lip; others want a light, natural appearance. Jessica takes time to get to know each bride so she can select makeup that will best suit the bride’s style, personality and skin.

Pre-wedding Day Consultation

A pre-wedding consultation gives Jessica an opportunity to learn about the bride’s tastes and needs for her wedding day. The consultation also helps the bride understand how air-brushed makeup is applied, and the results she can expect.

Picture-perfect Results

Jessica uses a high-quality, professional-grade air-brushed foundation from Kett. The foundation is vegan, eco-friendly and hypoallergenic. In addition to 20 years of experience as a cosmetologist, Jessica is specially trained by Kett to use their makeup.

The airbrush mist is applied to the face in light layers. After applying color-correcting and

concealing products, Jessica goes over the bride’s face six to nine times to build natural-looking, flawless coverage.

Air-brushed foundation truly gives the bride a glow. The long-lasting makeup stands up to heat, humidity, weather and perspiration to ensure the bride looks picture-perfect all day. For eyes, cheeks and lips, Jessica uses a variety of high-end popular cosmetics lines, including Urban Decay, Tarte and Kat Von D. Completing the bride’s full facial makeup takes about 30 minutes.

For brides who want a flawless finish on their bodies as well, Jessica is certified through Kett to do tattoo camouflage and coverup. Like the foundation, the body makeup lasts for hours in all kinds of temperatures and humidity.

Jessica enjoys giving each bride a fun, pampering and personalized experience.

She works on-site, travels and even does destination weddings.
