Hi! I'm Joleen, a French-American make-up artist based in Paris and California. I travel regularly between both places. Message me for availability and location.
Professionally trained in Paris, I have been in the makeup industry for 10+ years now working in television, fashion, photography and theatre. I have worked with brides all over France, Italy and California. I work with many different bridal photographers from around the world and several of my weddings have been featured in various French and American wedding blogs and magazines.
I am in the business of making women look and feel beautiful and I absolutely love it! A true Parisian Californian, I love the sunshine and a good glass of wine! I am a romantic free spirit, a yogi who runs and a pretty cheerful person in general!
I am based in Paris and Northern California, but I can travel anywhere. Travel fees are covered by client.

Joleen went above and beyond to help make our event, a masquerade ball at Versailles, incredible! While we had transportation issues getting to our appointment, she remained communicative and flexible the entire time. When we arrived at our meeting point, stressed and tired, she offered us a seat, some water, and let us take a breather before diving into her amazing creations. We were running late for another appointment, and she took it all in stride and made adjustments to get us back out the door amazingly fast...and her work didn't suffer a bit! She did up two hair dos and one face of make up so beautifully! She is very knowledgable about 18th century styles, and made us look (and feel) like ladies going to the court of Marie Antoinette! She is friendly, welcoming, incredibly accommodating, and does beautiful work...a true Fairy Godmother. I cannot recommend Joleen enough!

Definitely recommend Joleen!
Joleen was great from the moment I was in contact with her. She was extremely responsive and showed up on time. She was very easygoing and it made getting up early for the makeup session a breeze. Hair and makeup turned out great, as did our engagement photos.
