    Fantastic Experience For My Daughter's Wedding!

    JL Makeup and Beauty Studio absolutely did a beautiful job on all of my Daughter’s Bridesmaids, Flower Girls, Grandmothers, Moms and especially my Daughter!! Joy had a timeline for all of us for hair and makeup. Joy and the other stylists that worked on us were extremely efficient and had all of us done in plenty of time to get dressed! Everyone looked radiant and beautiful!! I would definitely recommend JL Makeup and Beauty Studio for any occasion!!

    Amazing makeup artist!

    Joy did an amazing job doing my makeup for the trial and wedding day! I had the trial on the day of my bridal shower to enjoy it and received so many compliments. Everyone said my makeup was flawless and that they had to know who did it. She listened to exactly what I wanted and gave me a beautiful super glam look! For the wedding day, we did the same thing and it lasted all day. I was nervous at first about the airbrush and if it would make my face break out but it did not and it lasted all day through sweat and tears. We had it done at 7 AM and it lasted until midnight +. I highly recommend Joy and will absolutely use her again in the future if I need to get my makeup done for anything. She was also super sweet and we had great conversations during both sessions.

    Makeup perfection

    Sooooo incredibly happy with my make-up by Joy for my wedding day. It was honestly PERFECT.

    Joy is so extremely talented. I was very worried about my make-up for my wedding day because I wear very limited make-up on a daily basis and really don't know much about make-up products, etc.

    I explained to Joy that I wanted a simple/natural look but also wanted it to be special and enough for my big day. She totally nailed it. I was SO happy with it, 100% confident that it was perfect. I received SO many compliments all day.

    In addition, my bridesmaids, moms & flower girl LOVED their make up as well. Two of them even said to me that this is the first time they had their make up done and actually loved it.

    Joy and her team are so incredibly professional, respond to you immediately, show up early, really everything you could ask for.

    JOY - THANK YOU!
