Excellent & Fun

Janine was very pleasant, comfortable, fun & easy to work with. She gave her time to come to the hotel I stayed at. My boyfriend and I enjoyed her presence & chatting (like we knew each other from before, first time meeting her), while she worked on my makeup & hair. Got a lot of compliments @ the ball. Thanks Janine!

Janine and her team were very professional. They were right on time which is always stress reducing, plus we actually finished earlier than anticipated which allowed some relaxing time. I couldn't be more thrilled with my hair and makeup for my wedding, I felt extremely beautiful. Also, my bridesmaid loved their looks too! Thanks Muah for all your hard work!!

We had the pleasure to collaborate on a wedding in June of 2016 with MUAH by J. I was so impressed with the work done by Janine! We were the DJ and the Photo Booth for a gorgeous wedding in Fort Collins on the Colorado State University campus. The outdoor wedding ceremony and separate reception facility made for lots of movement for the bride and she looked STUNNING all day and night. Because of scheduling, I had to meet with the bride and groom at the same time they were with Janine for the trial make-up and hair session. Janine was so accommodating for this to happen and it really set the tone for this wedding to be so successful for Jim and Sharilyn. Easy to work with, accommodating, professional, great results......Call up MUAH by J and talk to Janine right away! Can't wait to work with you again!

Janine I have used several times for photoshoots and special days and I can tell you that her work not only makes each client look fabulous but makes my job as a photographer so easy! My clients look flawless without any photoshop magic. And to be honest, that is how you should really look on your wedding day and feel like you are the most beautiful bride ever.
