EARLY RISER: Jess (her friends call her Jessie) might only be 21 years old, but she has been YouTubing fashion and beauty videos since the age of 16. Her make-up tutorials and high-street hauls racked up 238k subscribers, addicted to Jess’ edgy style.
MOVING ON: Jess is currently at Edinburgh University, studying English literature and living in a flat with two of her best friends. Anyone who follows Jess on YouTube will know she’s a huge bookworm, racing her way through the best titles of the moment either bought for fun, bought for uni or received as part of a present haul. Now in second year, Jess has also got into homeware in a big way. Jess’ fans have also been loving her travel vlogs, as she backpacks her way across South America, Europe and Mexico. That’s a long way away from Barnstable, North Devon, where Jess was born.
EDGY STYLE: Peter pan collars and floral dresses might be cute, but Jess opts for styles with a little more edge in her lookbooks. Oversized, vintage sportswear and rock’n’roll accessories match Jess’ multiple ear-piercings and pared back beauty look to appeal to a whole new vlog demographic. We suddenly want to start layering our necklaces over American Apparel basics and roomy denim jackets…
IN HIGH PLACES: Jess has an incredibly loyal fan base of her own, but after Tanya Burr mentioned her on her channel, subscribers came flooding over to Sunbeamsjess.
