Absolutely loved my experience with Jenessa

I found Jenessa online while looking for my bridal hair and makeup - after seeing her work portafolio I decided to contact her. From the beginning the communication was excellent and within minutes. She answered every single one of my questions and we were able to schedule the bridal trial a few weeks before the wedding. During both the trial and the wedding day, Jenessa (makeup artist) and Cathy (hair stylist) were amazing, they surpassed my expectations and did a beautiful job with my skin tone and hair, they also made my bridal party look incredible. Throughout the process Jenessa communicated with me and kept me updated which is a huge relief when dealing with tight schedules. I cannot recommend her enough, I really enjoyed working with her and her work and ethic is simply outstanding!!!
PS: I will share my experience with photos as soon as I get the professional ones

Jenessa is wonderful

We hired Jenessa for wedding makeup for me (the bride) and the whole wedding party. She did a great job - everyone looked fabulous. She was also patient and helpful when working with people who weren鈥檛 used to getting their makeup done or who wanted nontraditional makeup styles. I鈥檇 highly recommend hiring her for your big day.

Wonderful To Work With

Jenessa was amazing to work with. I was a decisive bride with photo inspo and a clear vision but my sisters and mother didn't have a clue what they wanted. Not only did she perfectly execute my look, she took the time to help each individual look and feel their absolute best. She was quick to respond to my messages and punctual for both my trial and day of. Highly recommend her services and will be using her for any event I find myself at in the future.

From a very young age it was obvious I had a natural gift for doing makeup. It was only after graduating from Columbia College with a degree in Fashion Retail Management that I began to realize makeup artistry was truly my calling. I went back to school at Makeup First School of Makeup Artistry in Chicago in 2010 and later honed my skills at MAC.

Makeup is my passion and I love to work with all different types of people. There is nothing better than to make woman feel beautiful on their most joyous occasions.

In my free time I love spending time with my husband, three pomeranian babies (Peaches, Oreo and Pepper). working out and traveling the world.
