Initiating her career in the Big Apple-at Makeup Forever Academy New York City, Jessica Monzalvo learned the tricks of the trade from New York's best working makeup artists. Jessica instantly fell in love with the bright lights of the city, and made it her mission to someday work in theater. Six short months after beginning her career, she found herself walking along the streets of Time Square heading to work an Off Broadway production.  While in NYC, Jessica came across many amazing opportunities such as working The Victoria Secrets Fashion Show and collaborating with numerous photographers.

Fueled by NYC's immeasurable energy she ventured back to Chicago and founded MAKEUP FIX by JEM. MAKEUP FIX by JEM is an educational program geared towards helping new and established artists with their artistry and career in Chicago and Mexico. Aside from educating in Chicago & Mexico, she's continued to expand her network and now counts Vera Wang, Kohls, Telemundo Chicago, Cao Cosmetics as clients among many others. Jessica Monzalvo believes that 'beauty is love' and her intense love for the industry will continue to drive her forward.
