    I was extremely pleased with the makeover service Jennifer offered me. I am a 40 year old professional who was just needing help getting out of a style rut. Jennifer was easy to work with and her price was very reasonable. She made me feel at ease from the start. She did a very good job of explaining what she was doing and what products she was using. I left my session with a full list of products, brushes, etc. in case I would like to purchase on my own in the future. I highly recommend Jennifer as she is more than qualified to meet all of your needs.

    I would recommend Jennifer to anyone who needs a make-up artist. Her skill-set is excellent! She is very professional, dependable, and friendly, always making sure her clients are completely satisfied. She will listen to your needs and come up with a game-plan specifically tailored to bring out the best in you. If you're looking for someone to apply your make-up for that once-in-a-lifetime occasion or just for a special night out on the town, Jennifer is your choice!

    I would definitely hire Jennifer again. She was very professional, responded quickly to my initial inquiry, arrived on time to the shoot, and worked very well with all the talent. The video shoot went great!
