We looked so beautiful!

I鈥檓 not exaggerating when I say you need to RUN to book with Jennifer! She is the sweetest, friendlist makeup artist who has such a talent to make those she works with feel so beautiful on the most special days. I knew after I left my makeup trial that I was going to feel so beautiful on our wedding day. All of my bridesmaids, moms, and grandmothers said that Jennifer was a joy to work with. My makeup application lasted from 11am until 3am on Sunday morning! It lasted through so many tears and many smiles. Thank you so much, Jennifer!

I have never felt more beautiful!

Jennifer is the real deal! I found Jennifer through some online and social media searching and was immediately drawn to her style. The consistently clean, natural, bridal looks that she produces are breathtaking. As someone who doesn鈥檛 wear much makeup normally, I wanted a look that wasn鈥檛 over the top but also reflected the beauty of the event. From our first meeting to our trial, she was so professional and detail oriented to ensure we had the same inspiration in mind. On our trial day, Jennifer took the time to sit and piece apart every single inspiration photo. I never thought to analyze an image in the way that she does. I left the trial absolutely in love with our final makeup look, excited to work with such a bubbly personality on the big day, and with a new education in makeup and my skin. On our wedding day, Jennifer was the first vendor I saw and to say she kicked off the enthusiasm of the day is an understatement. The immediate excited greeting and hug was such a great way to begin the day. Jennifer brought a second artist, given the size of our party and timeframe to get ready. I have been to weddings where it has been extremely clear that there were two different artists based on the discrepancies in styles on each person. Nicole and Jennifer were in step with the exact style we were looking for but tailoring it to each person鈥檚 colors and features. The makeup was perfect on everyone. Jennifer put together a touch-up kit and took the time to walk me through each product and teach me how to use them. I looked photo ready through the whole day thanks to her application and instruction on how to maintain it all. The beauty was the talk of the wedding. Many guests commented on the natural glam that she produced and how the looks lasted all night. At my trial, Jennifer took the time to photograph me with a professional camera. This was such a phenomenal thing to do as she was able to show me how the look would present on camera. She even had looked up my photographer and talked me through her lighting style and editing to discuss how the look would translate. She was one of the best investments for our wedding and I am so thankful for her skill and wonderful personality. She is the best hype woman on the big day!

The best!!!!!

Jennifer is without a doubt the absolute BEST! Not only is she the most talented makeup artist I鈥檝e ever encountered, but she鈥檚 also so sweet & personable, makes you feel so comfortable and she鈥檚 very organized with communication and timelines leading up to your wedding and on the day of. She felt like a long time friend from the first time i met her.
I wear makeup regularly but am no expert by any means and before Jennifer I always hated getting my make up done professionally and never felt like myself. After extensively researching Instagram pages and wedding website reviews for makeup artists, I chose Jennifer and I am SO thankful I did!! She truly does make you look and feel like an elevated version of yourself. I was so impressed with my trial that I even decided to book her for my rehearsal dinner too! I wish I could hire her to do my makeup everyday 馃槀
It was so nice being confident beforehand that I would love my wedding makeup. Truly could not recommend Jennifer enough!!!
