She is also one fashion model-, and is represented by Elite Model Management. She has a younger brother named Andrew Clements, who is currently studying in Boston where he lives with their parents. Jessica moved to New York and still lives there because of her modeling career.
When she was young, she took gymnastics and ballet classes, and her mother encouraged her to keep dancing and try acting. When Jessica discovered a passion for modeling, her mother was her biggest supporter. Before dedicating her life to becoming a model, Jessica was homeschooled.
By the time Jessica started her YouTube channel, she was already modeling in Boston, MA. She has also modeled in Los Angeles, Miami and New York City. Her first modeling job was with “Newbury Street-based Maggie Inc.” She worked with them for a while and then moved to a better-known New York agency, lite Model Management – working for Aerie was her first “big” campaign.
She started her eponymous YouTube channel on September 3, 2011, but didn’t start posting until 2015. Her videos are generally no longer than 15 minutes in length and focus on style lookbooks, clothing extracts, and makeup. Some of her most popular videos are ‘Winter Everyday Natural Makeup Tutorial 2017’, ‘Natural Defined Instagram Makeup’ and ‘Single-Eyeshadow Everyday Makeup Tutorial’. She films her videos at home with her Canon 70D camera, her Canon G7x camera or her iPhone; she also uses a ring light and a tripod.
She likes it when fans share how her videos have inspired and helped them.
For her, the greatest reward for what she does is the knowledge that she has improved people’s lives. She has landed minor roles in several films. In 2011, she appeared in ‘Infested Ship’, a short horror film about four friends who break into a haunted ship and encounter the undead; on IMDb, the short received a rating of 7.2/10. In 2012, she appeared in the horror film “The Devil’s Nightmare” which received a 6.7/10 rating on IMDb. She also appeared in the short drama film “Real Estate” in 2019, which follows a young man who is a real estate agent in hopes of becoming a successful businessman; the film received a rating of 5.7/10 on IMDb.
She has founded two companies: one is a consulting firm focused on advertising, digital brand development and fashion, and the other is a personal investment firm focused on digital technology platforms. Her favorite professional project is her ambassadorship at Chanel Beauty. From a young age, she had a deep love and appreciation for Coco Chanel and always dreamed of working with them. She encourages her fans to never lose themselves in what they are doing and to always keep their most precious things private.
In 2012, Jessica began dating fellow YouTuber Erik Conover, after they met on a modeling job.
Jessica was featured on Erik’s YouTube channel a few times before they broke up in 2016. Apart from Erik, she keeps all aspects of her romantic life private and has advised her fans to keep their personal lives private as well so that negative influences and rumors can be avoided. In 2019, a 40-year-old man sent Jessica a photo of himself standing in the lobby of her old apartment building; he was arrested and charged with stalking. According to Page Six, the man said he was able to find her old apartment by watching her YouTube videos and eventually putting together the location.
Page Six went on to say that Jessica’s manager, Max Hirsch, had contacted the man and warned him to “leave her alone and not contact her in any way.” Max said the man’s reply contained a death threat. The man was charged with a felony and released upon his acknowledgment, and Jessica was issued a protection order prohibiting the man from contacting or approaching her. She also moved out of her apartment.
Hobbies, favorite things and interesting facts
Jessica has a pet parrot, which she named Picasso. Growing up, her family always had birds in the house and Jessica went to the pet store to buy toys and food for the birds.
On one visit, she fell in love with an Amazon parrot, but the parrot had already been purchased by the time her family was ready for another bird. Just like in a fairy tale, Picasso found his way to Jessica – the owners heard that Jessica’s parents had a shelter for “problem birds” and brought Picasso to them. According to Jessica and her family, the previous owners did not treat Picasso well and he developed disobedient behavior. The story has a happy ending, as Jessica and Picasso became best friends right away.
She has said that when she visits her family, her father always plays her YouTube videos on their home television and exclaims, “Look who’s on TV!”
People often confuse her with British actress and TV presenter Jessica-Jane Clements, who is eight years older. Her favorite foods are carbonara and bolognese, and she’s cut coffee from her diet.
She has brown hair and blue eyes. She is 1.78 m tall, weighs about 60 kg and her vital statistics are 32-24-35 (81-61-89).
