Jen is absolutely fantastic!
I booked Jen for my engagement shoot and wedding. For my engagement, I had a bold red lip and beachwaves. Then for my wedding, I wanted a natural look so you could still see my freckles/moles and a half up/down hairstyle. Both looks were beautiful, which shows just how versatile she is as a makeup artists. She also did the makeup for my maids of honor and they were also extremely happy with their looks! Jen is an all-around warm and friendly person so having her do our makeup the morning of my wedding felt like she was just one of the girls!Sent on 10/17/2019

I Highly Recommend Jen!
I am forever grateful that Jen was recommended to me by a friend. She did an AMAZING job and I felt sooo beautiful on my wedding day. Honestly, I’ve never liked getting my make up done by other people because I don’t wear a ton of make up and don’t feel myself when I get it done. I had a really bad experience with a trial and decided I was going to do my own make up for my wedding. However, I’m so glad I was talked into having 1 more trial. That’s when I found Jen. My trial went great and I actually felt myself. I loved the look of the airbrush and it all looked so natural. Fast forward to my wedding day, I got 2 hours of sleep the night before so I was exhausted that morning. I was really worried about having bags under my eyes.. but Jen worked her makeup magic and I felt so beautiful! It was a perk that Jen was so sweet and professional as well. I would highly recommend Jen. She knows what she is doing and will make you feel like a million bucks! 💕Sent on 10/03/2019

Jen is amazing!
Do yourself a favor and hire Jen RIGHT NOW! She is a total professional and delight to work with!Sent on 09/17/2019
I did a make-up trial with Jen first. Her communication was timely and responsive, and she showed up on time to the appointment with a big smile. I don't really wear makeup often and I didn't have a clear idea of what makeup look I wanted for the wedding, so Jen took the lead and I am so glad she did! I LOVED her work - she made me look beautiful, but still like myself. As a woman of color with brown skin (I'm Ethiopian) I especially appreciated that she perfectly matched the foundation to my skin tone. I hired her immediately!
When it came to the big day, Jen was so flexible and sweet - exactly the kind of person you want to hang out with on your wedding morning. I changed the getting ready time on her at least twice, which was no problem, and on top of that she ended up doing my bridal hair (without a hair trial) and she NAILED IT. I showed her a picture, she straightened my hair, curled and put in my extensions, and did the updo in no time. We were all so impressed and my hair came out really beautiful in pictures!
Also, my mom is picky about make-up because she doesn't wear it, and frankly I was most worried about my mom not liking her look. But Jen totally made my mom feel at ease and reminded her the make-up was for the pictures. Wow I have never seen my mom look so beautiful. Best part was that my picky mom also LOVED her look! Honestly one of the best decisions I made for our wedding was hiring Jen. I plan to hire her for future events when I need to get dolled up! Hire her now - you won't be disappointed!
