Makeup Artist

Everybody loves Jeff! This is no secret. From the bay area to Sactown Jeff has made a name for himself both as a former trainer for MAC cosmetics and as a talented independent makeup artist. It all started for him in high school when Jeff would do makeup for the school actors in the school plays. Naturally his passion for makeup led him to esthetics and all things related to the health and beauty of the skin. For Jeff, the proof is in the pudding – he is all about results. There is nothing better than having an impact on the client and having that client return after noticing the positive changes in his or her skin.

Jeff gets inspired by color, the seasons, textures and the world around him. His makeup hero is Pat McGrath. His obsession started when he saw the Spring 2004 John Galliano runway video he was amazed and started following her career.

Jeff is certified in Obagi, advanced peeling with Image along with a clinical background after having worked in a cosmetic surgeon’s office. He has been dubbed the eyebrow master and the skin whisperer because he is passionate about perfect brows, peels and results. He goes the extra mile to do what it takes to get clients where they want to be. When asked what he loves about Deeda Jeff says: the building, what it stands for and the commitment by everyone here to being the best at what they do. To him, Deeda means being different and cutting edge without being over the top.

Jeff has worked with the comedian Anjelah Johnson, doing makeup for her wedding, for her stand-up shows and two of her DVDs. He has worked with Fergie on two Black Eyed Peas concerts, the Food Wars host, Sacramento Kings and more. When Jeff is not at Deeda making pretty you can find him at Second Saturday, concert in the park, Folsom lake and just plain enjoying our town.
