Jon - Makeup Artist

Jon is an experienced makeup artist from Allentown, Pa and a licensed cosmetologist. His love for makeup was born at the age of 18 when he began to study the art of female illusion, assuming the alias of “Akasha Couture.” He is a graduate from Metro Beauty Academy and has worked in many salons including an Aveda Lifestyle salon in the Lehigh Valley. Although he loved working in a salon setting, he had a true passion for makeup artistry, transformations, and making people feel beautiful. That passion for beauty eventually lead to Jon to becoming a freelance makeup artist for Aveda, and an educator for Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics.

He has had an impressive career thus far, being able to work in both print and film, traveling to salons to educate other artists. Jon has also had the honor to be apart of iconic events as working artist for New York Fashion Week, Men's Fashion Week, and New York Bridal Week, working closely with many different designers.

Jon now works for Sephora when he is not freelancing which has afforded him the opportunity to learn about a multitude of luxury and trend makeup lines inside and out. He loves to learn from other artists to be able to further evolve and perfect his technique. Jon joined Team Makeup by Roxy during their 2017 season and is a staple artist both on-location & in studio.
