Celebrity Makeup Artist Reggie Wells Reveals his Extraordinary Weight Loss on the Jenny Craig Program

Celebrity Make-Up Artist Reveals his Transformation and Dramatic Weight Loss of over 50-lbs

Carlsbad, Calif.(September 1, 2010) — Jenny Craig, Inc., one of the nation's leading authorities on weight management, announced today that Reggie Wells, celebrity makeup artist with a client list that has included Oprah Winfrey, has achieved an impressive weight loss of over 50 lbs.* Wells is an Emmy Award-Winning makeup artist, with over 30 years of experience, and is an author of the book Face Painting. He is also the Creative Director of America's hottest new beauty brand, "Hissyfit."

Wells joined Jenny Craig after realizing that his weight was causing him various health problems. As a makeup artist who transforms women, Wells wanted to make himself over from the inside out. He wanted to make a change to how he looked but also to how he ate and thought about food so that he could successfully lose the weight and maintain his new self. He started the program in March 2009, and lost over 50 pounds in 54 weeks* with the help of his personal consultant who helped him every step of the way. "My consultant Michele was my rock through this journey, and I can't imagine getting to where I am today without her," said Wells.

Wells started working with Oprah Winfrey in 1986, and is the makeup master behind numerous covers of O Magazine. He has also had his work featured in publications like Glamour, Harper's Bazaar, Life, Time, and Vogue to name a few.

Wells believes that every woman is a beautiful individual and doesn't need an entire face of make-up. Though he has worked with a long list of celebrities, he strives to help everyday women accentuate the positive and bring out their very best. Hitting his initial weight loss goal of 50 pounds,* Wells is inspired to go for another 10. "My career is to not only transform women through the art of make-up, but to ultimately make them shine on the inside and out," said Wells. "I'm the one shining now thanks to my 50 pound weight loss* on Jenny Craig. I've not only transformed my body, but also my mind -- and I've really never felt better."
