Hello and welcome!  My name is Jill Sherrard and let me be among the first to congratulate you on your wedding/special event!  I am a licensed make up artist with twelve active years in the professional make up and skin care industry.  I have worked for and have been the featured make up artist for some of the largest names in the industry.

     At the age of 19, I started my career working in the cosmetics department at Macy's.  I loved doing makeovers all day and before long, management realized that I had a special talent.  I was promoted to various positions including featured artist and event make up artist for lines including MAC, Estee' Lauder, Lancôme and Borghese.  My love of cosmetics and skin care drove me to attend formal training as an esthetician and upon graduating, went to work for a plastic surgeon as a medical esthetician.  While learning all the aspects of skin care, make up was still my first love. 

     My husband's military service took me to Hawaii and foreign countries including Japan, Thailand and Korea.  I always took the opportunity to take classes and train in foreign beauty culture and customs.  Japan has one of the most intriguing and beautiful history of costume and theater and I was fortunate enough to attend classes in Japanese theater and to learn different aspects of make up design and application.  This training stirred my sense of creativity and love of my craft even deeper.  Upon returning to the United States,  I became an esthetician and make up artist instructor at the Dawn Training Center in Wilmington, Delaware. 

     My journey as make up artist has led me to owning my own business specializing in bridal and event make up.  I believe that the beauty of one's inner soul can be reflected on the outside of the body.  I love what I do and it would be a privilege to be a part of your event.
