Having a makeup look you love is great - but when you work with First Looks LLC, you're getting a beauty and service experience that leaves you feeling truly seen and truly celebrated.
Planning a wedding often involves LOTS of logistics: we’re balancing expectations (our own and others'), priorities, timelines, and making endless decisions...and the emotions, relationships, and conversations within all of that stuff can be totally overwhelming.
When we’re stressed or overwhelmed, our brains react to our environments and interpret communication signals differently, and we actually have a harder time making decisions - and that's why having one on one support (from someone who’s been there!) for processing those feelings, navigating and planning for tough conversations, and managing stress is SO important!
That kind of experienced, judgement-free support is exactly what First Looks offers.
First Looks LLC blends experienced, multi-award winning makeup artistry with training and expertise in advising and educational counseling for a one-of-a-kind beauty and emotional support experience. Whether you're looking for gorgeous on-site makeup applications with our all-inclusive bridal makeup package, or personalized support to guide you through the emotional aspects of planning your wedding, First Looks makes sure your beauty experience is rooted in connection, compassion, and celebration.

Professional, Kind, Talented
Thank you, Jacquelyn!!!! You are so professional, cheerful, and of course talented. We felt comfortable with you from the beginning, and we left your studio feeling like the best version of ourselves. 💞
Also, major thank you for the snacks. Nobody wants a hangry bride 😂

One of a Kind Full Package Deal!
First Looks LLC did my makeup for a wedding I was in a few months ago. From the point of view of someone that doesn't wear a lot of makeup, I was shocked when I saw the cases of makeup that Jacquelyn brought with her. But as soon as I sat in her chair, she made me feel comfortable and excited about getting my makeup professionally done!Sent on 10/31/2020
There were some bridesmaids that initially declined having their makeup done. But once they saw Jacquelyn's work on the day of the wedding, they quickly changed their mind. Jacquelyn was flexible and worked to get all the last minute additions in with the time we had left. She made everyone feel beautiful and confident for the big day!
First Looks LLC is the way to go for whatever special occasion you have coming up. You won't regret working with Jacquelyn. She's a one of a kind full package deal!

Wedding make up
Jacquelyn is absolutely phenomenal! She knows how to give you the desired look with her added touch of magic. She made my sister and I feel more beautiful than ever! She taught us every step of the way on how to do the make up routine of our choice. She took it 10 steps further by adding skin care and product knowledge as well. Not to mention, she made me feel more beautiful than ever! My favorite part of her art is, BLACK OWNED products that she uses. A s a black woman that is beyond important and supportive. It really shows that she is passionate about making every client feel valued and beautiful! I a thousand percent recommend her! She really adds the energy needed for any wedding to be successful and for any bride or bridesmaids to feel beyond beautiful and CONFIDENT! Thank you Jacquelyn! Thank you First Looks!Sent on 10/28/2020
