Love, Jessica Markowski

With over 170,000 followers on Instagram, model Jessica Markowski makes the most of her platform to build her career while spreading as much positivity as she can.

Actress, model, and content creator? It seems safe to say that Brooklyn native, Jessica Markowski, is all in when it comes to the camera. First scouted when she was still in her junior year of high school, Jessica discovered her love of performance through her shoots and many commercials. We wonder if she ever has time to slow down since it seems like she juggles so much, but Jessica inherits her passionate work ethic from her immigrant background, as her parents emigrated from Poland to pursue the American Dream. And her drive definitely shows–with over 170,000 followers on Instagram, Jessica makes the most of her platform to build her career and spread as much positivity as she can. Honoring this romantic month, we sat down with Jessica to ask her about the things she loves.

Morning beauty routine you love…

I always start with cleansing my skin with Dermalogica’s Special Cleansing Gel. Then, I like to exfoliate and add an oil to hydrate my skin. For that I use Dermalogica’s Daily Superfoliant and their Phyto Replenish Oil. I follow by using a moisturizer I grew up using since I was a kid: Nivea!

Evening beauty routine you love…

In the evening, I love to take off all my makeup. I use Johnson’s Original Baby Oil to melt everything off my face. Then, I use the same cleanser to remove all the impurities before going to bed. Once I feel clean, I put on an oil or night cream.
 I love using Elemis’ Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream.

A “you-time” pamper/relaxation ritual you love…

I love to listen to music in the morning. It puts me in the right mood, energizes me, and gives me all the power to get me through my day!

Foods you love…

Anything Polish, Japanese or Italian!

Exercise you love…

I love cycling, barre and HIIT classes!

Travel destinations you love…

A travel destination I love is Vail, Colorado. Growing up in NYC, I really appreciate the moments when I can go somewhere that is very “outdoorsy.” I love to ski in the winter and hike in the summer when I’m there!

Skincare product(s) or trick(s) you love…

I love coconut oil! I use it for my hair as an overnight mask and also to whiten my teeth!

Makeup product(s) you love…

This is my everyday look that I love right now:

  • Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer
  • Becca Highlighter
  • Nars Blush
  • Maybelline Mascara
  • Burt’s Bees Lip Balm
Perfume(s) you love…

I love Rose Olivier by Bastide. I get so many compliments on it!

Restaurant you love…

I do not have to go too far to find amazing restaurants since I live in the West Village, but the top two favorites in my neighborhood are L’Artusi and Via Carota.

Neighborhood you love…

A neighborhood that is very near and dear to my heart is Greenpoint, Brooklyn. It is where I grew up. It is where my childhood was. It is also the place where my mom and dad immigrated to from Poland. It’s a place with a lot of Polish culture!

Activity you love…

I love to go for long walks around NYC. You can see so much– from people, to buildings, to restaurants. I get so inspired by the energy of NYC!

Passions and interests you love…

My biggest passion is to travel. I love learning about cultures, languages, and history.

Qualities in a partner you love…

The most important qualities I admire in a partner are honesty and respect. Being in a 3+ year relationship, you come to realize how nice it is to be open and trusting of one another. At the end of the day, you are a team and you should be an “open book” with each other. I think that carries a lot of value.

The part of your job you love the most…

I absolutely love the creativity. I love the fact that every day is not monotonous. I love being my own boss too!
