Hello! My name is Jacqueline Gellner and I’m a professional makeup artist based in Washington, DC. I’m dedicated to creating stunningly beautiful looks while making others feel and look their absolute best through the art of makeup. Specifically, I specialize in makeup artistry for weddings, South Asian weddings, commercial work, film and photo shoots, including makeup for headshots, fashion, beauty and editorial work. I’ve worked with notable clients from WWE to DC area news anchors and U.S. politicians.
I have 10 years of experience as a makeup artist and began working in the beauty industry during college, including several years as a certified makeup artist with MAC Cosmetics. After gaining experience with many of the top cosmetic lines in the beauty industry, I began freelancing independently in Washington, DC for weddings, fashion shows, special events, and film and photo shoots and have continued to do so since.
Makeup artistry and working in the beauty industry is a deep and true passion of mine, the main driving force being the positive and joyful reaction I receive from those I work with by helping them to not only look beautiful but feel beautiful. As a makeup artist continually striving to offer the best service, I place a huge emphasis on honing in and perfecting my makeup artistry skills and offering excellent client service. I take pride in staying on the verge of trendsetting beauty looks and having strong, open communication with clients to determine the best look for their needs. As an experienced and skilled makeup artist, I will spend the time needed collaborating with you to perfect the flawless look you’ve been envisioning. I hope to work with you soon!
