Jaleesa Jaikaran | Makeup Artist Jaleesa Jaikaran | Makeup Artist

about

Jaleesa Jaikaran grew up in Trinidad, the small island where her life-long passion for makeup was birthed. Her involvement in a fashion show led her to purchase a foundation which became the spark that led her into the world of fashion and beauty.

In 2011, while pursuing her business degree, she landed a job with a cosmetic company, where she was exposed to the international scope of the beauty industry and the opportunity to train her peers.
Having worked with Trinidad’s most well-known photographers, designers, and artists and as a freelance beauty writer, she took her unrelenting passion and desire to learn, packed up her bags and moved to New York.

Jaleesa works to enhance a clients' natural beauty, “I like skin to look like skin,” she says. Obsessed with the transformative powers of makeup, her approach has always been to see the entire picture first and tailor it to suit the creative vision. Her inspiration comes from being exposed to diverse cultures and the desire to uplift the self-esteem of women as this was a struggle she experienced growing up.

The vivacity she possesses along with the tremendous expertise and enthusiasm she brings to every job are the driving forces behind her successes thus far. Jaleesa is proud to have been called on to assist Kabuki, Sir John Barnett, Ashunta Sheriff, Viktorija Bowers, Vincent Oquendo and Griselle Rosario.

Jaleesa Jaikaran is a bicoastal makeup artist.
