Joanna is a very talented makeup artist! I did a bridal trial with her and my makeup looked flawless. I also chose her as the makeup artist for my wedding - she did my bridal makeup as well as the rest of my wedding party. Everyone looked so beautiful and the pictures came out great! Joanna is very professional and thorough. We e-mailed multiple times back and forth and she provides a lot of detailed information about her services and products. Her prices reflect the quality of her work and her experience. I highly recommend Joanna for her makeup artistry services because she's the best in Boston! Thank you Joanna!Sent on 10/26/2015

There is no other like Joanna Petit Frere, she is truly the best in the industry. Before meeting Joanna, I had met with a number of make-up artist and was highly disappointed with the results. I went to Sephora, Bobbi Brown, Mac, and I met two other make-up artist that owned shops and specialized in make-up for brides, still the results were horrible. While I love the products at Sephora the Make-up artist applied my make-up just as I would, their skills were basic. Other had applied tons of make-up on my face, filled my eyelids with eyeliner and make-up, by the end of it , I did not recognize my face and to top it off my face became so greasy.Sent on 02/06/2013
I looked into Joanna's work and I could not believe it! In fact I was convinced that she photo-shopped her work before displaying it, and I learned that this was not the case. Joanna, really brought out the beauty in me. She didn't apply tons of make-up on me. But she applied it so that it looked natural and emphasized certain feature. The day that I went in for my trial, my eyebrows weren't done, and I have acne. Yet when Joanna was done my skin looked impeccable and my eyebrow were suddenly done. As I mentioned before I suffer from acne prone skin, with dark spot and large pore. However, when Joanna finished none of this was evident, for the first time in my life my face was flawless. I was so overjoyed and I knew I was going to look stunning on my big day. Not to mention the makeup lasted all day!! My bridesmaids were speechless when they saw the resulted. Joanna, suggested using a blotting powder if I got oil during the day and I didn't even need it. I had some scheduling issues with around my trial, however she is so phenomenal, that its not worth getting into. This woman is amazing! if you are looking for a make-up artist, she is the way to go. She is pleasant, she's fast and she truly will make you BEAUTIFUL.
