Jan was a total joy to work with! I would highly recommend her to any bride who wants beautiful make up from a true professional. I wasn't sure I wanted to get my make up done for my wedding. I have freckles and usually wear little to no make up so I was worried that I wouldn't look like myself if I let someone else do my make up. Once I looked into how much it would cost to buy the products necessary to ensure any make up I put on would last the full wedding day, I realized that I might as well hire a professional. I am SO lucky that I ended up with Jan. Right from the get-go, she was incredibly responsive, organized, and straight forward about services, prices, etc. I did a trial, and Jan could not have been more patient, making thoughtful suggestions and giving me options, but also respecting where my comfort zone was. On my wedding day, she did exactly what we had decided on at the trial and was totally accommodating when I said I was wiling to go a little bit further on some of her suggestions. She was great with my family and friends who were there, too, making easy conversation with everyone. I loved the way I looked on the day/in the photos (freckles and all!). If you're lucky enough to have a wedding on a day that Jan is available, definitely book her - you won't regret it!

Jan is simply amazing--a true artist who will make you feel incredible on your wedding day. A few highlights:

1. Jan is incredibly talented. She knows how to make you feel special yet natural on your wedding day. I don't typically wear much makeup and didn't want it to look too heavy. Jan somehow managed to honor that request while taking my wedding-day look to the next level. She also patiently put up with my multiple changes of lipstick color and helped navigate the whole process with such ease. Plus the makeup stayed on all night, through rain, humidity, dancing, etc. I'm so happy with her work and thrilled that I felt so comfortable and confident on my wedding day.

2. She is great with everyone. She did my MOH's makeup plus my Mom, Mother-in-Law, and Officiant. She does a beautiful job with women of all ages and knows how to make everyone feel comfortable and heard.

3. Jan is a true professional. Leading up to the wedding she was prompt, courteous, and made her expectations very clear. Then, on my wedding day, she did her work in a small space surrounded by my girlfriends bouncing around talking to me and being generally distracting without missing a beat. She's so experienced and talented that she was able to do a perfect job in less-than-ideal conditions, which really impressed me.

4. She goes above and beyond. Jan has great tips about skincare and makes sure you have everything you need to look and feel your best on your wedding day. She took time to follow up with me about a skincare issue after my trial, which I really feel made a difference. She repeatedly exceeded her makeup artist duties and I am so grateful for that!

Overall hiring Jan was one of my best wedding decisions. Everyone raved about her personally and the beautiful work she did. Thank you, Jan!

Jan is such a joy to be around. Her amazing talent, kind and warm personality and true professionalism make a brides special day even more special. I highly recommend her to my brides.

Jan is one of the best make up artists in the area! Jewel Hair Design has worked with her several times over the past few years and we have grown to thoroughly enjoy working along side of her and seeing her beautiful work and techniques. She is professional, sweet, talented, and calming ( all things that you would want in a make up artist on your wedding day) If you want a make up artist who is seasoned with plenty of experience, as well as someone who will listen to you and make you look and feel like yourself and not "over- done" Jan is your gal! You will not be disappointed!

Jan did outstanding make-up for my clients! Many Kudos to her professional set-up!

I can't say enough good things about Jan and her amazing talent! I worked with Jan on a number of weddings. I am always in awe of the the beauty she creates. She has such an eye for makeup! Each face she does is flawless! Even when it calls for smoky eyes or retro, she rises to each challenge and creates art that compliments every aspect of the bride! Not only is she truly an artist and professional but she is so sweet, so fun and I just love sharing space with her at any event. She is a full of energy, life and passion for her craft. I would refer her to any of my closest family or friends.
