"It's my job to show the world a woman's beauty, it's my joy to help her see it." – Jackie Shawn

Incredibly down to earth and real for an award-winning artist and globetrotter, Jackie Shawn is the go-to makeup artist for magazine editors, celebrities, and major global beauty brands. Her diverse roster of print, online and advertising clients includes VOGUE, ELLE, GLAMOUR, FLARE, MARIE CLAIRE, FASHION and ROUGEMAG, as well as beauty giants DOVE, P&G, MAYBELLINE, and MAC. At ease in front of a camera, crowd, or on a radio Jackie effortlessly engages a broad audience of women and men alike with her wit and insightful thoughts on beauty. Shawn cites one of the highlights of her multifaceted career is her collaboration on a VERSACE campaign with the legendary photographer RICHARD AVEDON.

An expert on global beauty trends with a background in the healing arts Jackie excels at quickly yet adeptly assessing any situation she walks into to ensure she manifests a memorable experience and stellar results. Whether it be amid backstage chaos at a MARC JACOBS fashion show or at THE ACADEMY AWARDS, the making of a NELLY FURTADO music video, or a portrait of SHAKIRA for ESQUIRE, grooming JUSTIN BEIBER and VIGGO MORTENSEN for Red Carpet, or going on tour to Japan with CYNDI LAUPER, Jackie keeps the art of beauty fun and engaging.

Overcoming her acute shyness - just ask her - Jackie has parlayed her warmth, wit and extensive knowledge into public speaking at industry and special events, online how-to videos, creating  a MASTER CLASS for MAC COSMETICS and as keynote speaker at THE CANADIAN MAKEUP SHOW where she curated top artists in her field to discuss the industry. Her segment "CHICK CHAT" was a crowd favorite. 

Jackie is a true believer in the expression of beauty comes from within. Her passion is natural beauty, health equals beauty. * Certified Aromatherapy Health Professional (CAHP)
