You are in safe, reliable, and beautiful hands with Jan! I was searching for a makeup artist who was down to earth, not pushy about trends/style/or any "must-haves," and knew how to subtly elicit natural beauty. Jan was all of these things and more. She was patient and responsive throughout the hiring process, open to phone calls and emails. Jan's trial process sets her apart - she comes to your location (!!) and spends as much as needed to map out your day-of look. The trial was so comforting and thorough, my Mom felt comfortable using her for her makeup as well (this is truly a feat, she was beyond nervous to have her makeup professionally done, the next day she reported - zero shine, zero smudges, and all night long stay!). Jan even purchased products to match my wants/needs after the trial and gave incredibly helpful tips/advice. Her pricing is just icing on the cake. Jan is an expert with lashes, I was anti-lashes initially and she tested multiple options and ended up making me feel my absolute best with a natural pair. Each of my bridesmaids had this experience as well, one said it best: "She made me look like me, but better. Like the best natural version of myself." She has an easy, calm presence making her a seamless addition to your day-of crowd.Sent on 10/10/2018

Jan was great! On time, very organized, and so nice! She did some of my bridesmaids and my mom and mother in laws makeup for my wedding and they all looked amazing!

Jan did my make up for my engagement shoot and my wedding. She also did make up for my closest girl friends and my mom at my wedding. Everyone who worked with her said that it was the best professional make up experience they're ever had. I loved both looks that she did for me and felt like the most beautiful version of myself. My make up looked flawless for 12 hours on my wedding day. Jan is a really lovely person to talk to, and I enjoyed all of the tips and feedback she gave me. I wouldn't hesitate to hire her again in the future.Sent on 11/10/2018

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!
