Before she was the personal makeup artist to Barack Obama during his campaign for the presidency, Jennifer Bradley was a stage and screen actress who struggled with acne-prone skin. To combat it, she started creating her own skincare formulas that were free of mineral oils, fragrances, and fillers. Those formulas soon became her business, Jennifer Bradley Corporation products, which she now wields as a makeup artist to the stars.
In addition to being touted in the pages of People and US Weekly, her makeup and skincare lines have graced the faces of Michelle Obama, Kelly Clarkson and Pamela Anderson. She regularly teaches clients how to become their own makeup masters during Makeup 101 classes, where she shows them how to cover age spots, contour cheekbones, and create a smoky eye that doesn't induce cravings for barbecue.
