This review is long overdue but it’s been nagging on my mind to give this woman the credit she deserves! Jennifer shared her niche is natural wedding day makeup but I wanted something a little more glamorous. I lived in CO at the time of my wedding and was unable to meet in advance for a trial. Jennifer was so incredibly responsive to emails and the many pictures I sent of the look I wanted. She guided me in finding the right lipstick color (which was very important to me). One of my bridesmaids is super glamorous with makeup, while my mom wanted extremely natural. Literally everyone was thrilled with their look. She checks in and has you look in the mirror for feedback numerous times to make sure you’re happy.
Beyond her skills as a makeup artist, she also has such a relaxing presence. My nerves were high but she helped me feel at ease.
Almost forgot, a woman in the catering staff at the end of the night told me I looked beautiful AND most importantly, that my makeup still looked and incredible. It lasted all night!! My face did not melt! So important!!
HIRE HER. You will not regret it.Sent on 01/25/2021

Felt like a movie star!
Jennifer was fantastic to work with for my wedding this past Summer. My makeup looked natural and stayed put from getting ready in the morning until way after the party was over the next morning! She is so kind, and such a great energy to have around on the morning of the wedding when nerves are running high. Everyone’s makeup looked fantastic, and she kept all of the bridesmaids/flower girls/ mothers looking like themselves with the makeup still reflecting their individual personalities. I’ve struggled with combination skin and acne, and all that I wanted on my wedding day was to have perfect looking skin. A few days before I broke out with a pretty large blemish, and on my wedding day you couldn’t even tell it was there with Jennifer’s wonderful makeup! I don’t wear makeup on a normal basis (I’ll take extra sleep over getting ready), so I was concerned about having a look that my future husband wouldn’t recognize while still wanting to feel special and that I had makeup on for the big day. Jennifer followed my direction perfectly and I’m so happy with how the final look came out! I am so grateful that we were able to have Jennifer there for our wedding day!Sent on 12/17/2019

BEST makeup artist!
Hire Jennifer!! We needed makeup for 9 bridesmaids, my and my husband's mothers, and myself on my wedding day (12 total), and the afternoon ceremony dictated everyone needed to be done by 12:30pm. Jennifer assured us she could handle them all - not only did she run the entire morning ahead of schedule, but everyone looked and felt absolutely stunning. I knew I was in good hands after my trial, when we walked through every step together to create the perfect look that made me feel beautiful. I could not have been more thrilled on my wedding day. Thank you Jennifer!Sent on 08/15/2019
Jennifer is truly a master of her craft! She has an amazing ability to listen to her clients, help them find their perfect look, and (seemingly) effortlessly put it all together. She is so easy to work with, fun, and professional. She makes her clients feel relaxed, and brings out their very best beauty, both inside and out. If you're to choose one indulgence for yourself, make it booking Jennifer - she is worth it!
We love when our couples choose Jennifer for their special occasion! Jennifer's brides are stunning in person and, just as important, perfect in their photos. Always the consummate professional, Jennifer follows up promptly, arrives with everything she needs to tackle even the most surprising last minute change, executes a beautiful finish, and works well within our timelines and also with our coordinating staff. Thanks Jennifer for all you do to make our Round Barn families happily ever after.
Jen is a makeup wizard. Every bride I have photographed who had their makeup done by Jen were simply glowing and gorgeous.
