Purity Movement: Celeb Makeup Artist and “Pure Beauty Project” Founder Jessica Hoffman
Written by Christi Given | August 13, 2015
Jessica Hoffman is a professional makeup artist and hairstylist who has been in the fashion/beauty industry for more than a decade and counting! She is a celebrity makeup artist who has worked with our very own Nicole Weider, is Carrie Keagan’s personal makeup artist and has worked with Colbie Caillat, the Backstreet Boys and more! She also has worked on different television shows, doing makeup for America’s Top Model and VH1’s Big Morning Buzz Live, and has worked on the Grammy Awards, the Critics’ Choice Awards, the American Country Awards and more! Whew! You can go to her website to learn more about her.
Not only is Jessica an amazing makeup artist, but she is also an amazing woman of God. Jessica is in her 30s and has remained a pure virgin until marriage. She has written on her blog about singleness, and has been on many adventures with the Lord, but also initiated a “Pure Beauty Project.” The “Pure Beauty Project” was initiated in 2008, inspired by Jessica committing to staying pure to God and to her future husband by waiting to have sex until her wedding night. Jessica wanted to help others see that they are also pure beauties and that waiting is worth it. She has done conferences and events for the “Pure Beauty Project” by doing fashion shows and having guest speakers. Hoffman also blogs about vision, value and true inner beauty.
Jessica truly sparkles for Jesus and is such a light! What a great role model for Christ, amen? I love how she says learn the difference between “rejection” versus God’s “protection.” Check out her YouTube channel -she is AMAZING!
From Jessica’s “Pure Beauty Project” blog:
“Today, April 22nd, is an important day to me…back in 1994 on this day, I signed a purity pledge and vowed to myself I would wait to have sex until my Husband and I could come together as one on our wedding night. Four years ago today, I held my first Pure Beauty Event that launched a beautiful, incredible journey for me and my team of friends who made the event happen. Our journey has taken the message of Pure Beauty Project around the WORLD! I’ve had the extraordinary honor of speaking to thousands of women and hundreds of men on the power of purity and how we can live a life of VISION, VALUE, PURITY and BEAUTY….”
“I’ve appeared on numerous television shows and radio shows, and publications from around the world—even in Scandinavia—have devoted articles and covers to me and Pure Beauty Project. I never knew just how big God wanted to take this dream of mine…in fact, this is HIS dream he placed in my heart…and I am beyond grateful God has allowed me to share this message with the world…with YOU.”
Jessica’s purity journey has continued, and she is working on some new projects such as a documentary on true beauty, is traveling and recently hosted with JUCE TV Network. Please pray for Jessica as she is traveling internationally and is continuing her faith walk in trusting God and is expanding her ministry.
PI Girls, do you just LOVE her or what?! Want to hear about a God-incidence (a coincidence but God-ordained)? She is Nicole’s makeup artist whom Nicole discovered on social media, and I met her not through Nicole, but through a Bible study for fashion! What a small world! God is so faithful and answers prayer! I even prayed for more awesome godly people to partner with Nicole and me! God is too good!
PI Girls, do you find that Jessica is a great role model and inspiration to you? Comment below!
