Love what you do and the rest will fall into place,” April Epps of A Renee Makeup Artistry says.

She is a Best of Jackson veteran, winning Best Facialist/Esthetician in 2018 and 2019, and she was a finalist in 2017 for Best Makeup Artist. This year, she takes the win in both categories. Epps has worked in the makeup industry for 16 years and in skin care for six. She regularly takes the time to learn and stay up on what’s trending.

One of her favorite aspects of her job is meeting people and building relationships with them. “I love my clients. They become my family,” she says. She values whenever she is specifically chosen to do work for important events in people’s lives, like weddings. Recently, Epps did Elee Reeves’ makeup in preparation of Gov. Tate Reeves’ inauguration on Jan. 14.

“It means so much when people trust me enough to pick me. You know these huge moments will last forever for them,” she says. — Sarah Kate Pollard
