As Series 2 of The Voice kicks off, its another chance for us to admire Jessie Js pre-buzz cut hair (it was filmed just before she shaved off her signature dark locks for Comic Relief).
We love her rich espresso-toned bob with slick dark eye make-up, and high gloss pout to match. In fact, we love this look so much that we went straight to her hair and make-up team for an exclusive insight into how they achieved the look.
Make sure you check back here when the live shows start as well have all the insider info on her make-up looks, plus if she decides to have some fun with her shaved hair well have the lowdown on that too. Make sure you follow us on Twitter @ELLEUK and @ELLEBEAUTYTEAM to get the information first.
Jessies Make-up Artist, Karin Darnell, wanted to create a soft and glowing look with a little bit of drama.
Using Guerlain Perfume de Lumiere Foundation, Karin created a glowing base under Crème de la Mer concealer along with face powder, also by Crème de la Mer. For dramatically defined eyes Eylure eyelashes layered up with Givenchy Phenomen Eyes Waterproof Mascara did the trick. A little eye pencil pushed into the lash roots defined the eye and removed any tell-tale signs of false lashes. She then used a black pencil inside the waterline and blended around the eyes to give the look a soft focus. Armani brow defining pencil shaped Jessies brows, but Karin didnt want to make the eyebrows too bold - this pencil is super soft and buildable.
Alisha Dobson, Jessie Js hairstylist whos responsible for the buzz cut, shares her tips on how to recreate the judges asymmetrical bob at home
We used bumble and bumble 'deeep' conditioning treatment to keep Jessie's hair healthy and shiny.I then blow dried Jessie's hair with Phillip Kingsley 'Maximizer', using a round brush, (GHD ceramics brushes being my favourite!). To get the hair super smooth Alisha then went over the hair with straighteners for added shine and to control the hair. To finish I added some bumble and bumble classic to flatten any flyaways.
