Wedding and Event Makeup

THE BEST! Honestly !!!!!! Since the first day I messaged her she’s responded to me ASAP and I already felt like she was my best friend! She did my makeup for my wedding and everyone knows how stressful planning even the smallest wedding can be. I asked her for her opinion about my hair she even watched a tutorial video to make it happen with NO hesitation. I asked her opinion about earrings, she gave me her opinion! She contributed so much more than just hair and makeup and thaaat is the type of professional you want to hire for your events! Not who strictly stay to their job title but the ones who actually care to make your day so special! Thank you Jocelyn ❤️ I hope people believe in you and your work just as much as I do !!! You truly made my wedding day so so special. Thank you for your advice on everything and being so open with me!! You are a Blessing !!

Wedding and Event Makeup

Jocelyn was a delight to work with in every way. Friendly, knowledgeable, punctual, professional, cleanliness and sanitation standards... I could not speak more highly of her and her work. Both for the trial and event. At my ceremony on 5/10/21 everyone was stunned by how gorgeous my hair and make up was. Her work speaks for itself and I would recommend her to anyone hosting an event or doing photos - or just to pamper yourself and feel beautiful!

Wedding and Event Makeup

Jocelyn did an amazing job! She arrived right on time and was ready to get started. I was worried about her having to do my makeup while I sat in my kitchen chair however she provided her own salon seating which I thought added the extra touch of professionalism. When she was all done and I looked in the mirror I couldn’t believe how amazing I looked! I stared at myself for a few in awe! This hire was for my engagement shot however because of the amazing job she did and how pleasant she was I will be hiring her again for my big day!! She still keeps in touch which I love it makes me feel like more than just a customer! Thanks Jocelyn!!!

Wedding and Event Makeup

Jocelyn is amazing! I needed her for my brother's wedding and as soon as I sent her a message and responded to me right away. She was available for us for the 3 days we needed her. She's very professional and sweet and works fast and beautifully! The bride's makeup was gorgeous and we were all stunned by her work! She's very reasonably priced and was able to take on more than I promised her. She was supposed to do the bride plus 3 others but when other people wanted their makeup done she was able to accommodate everyone. If you need a makeup artist Jocelyn is definitely the person to go to!!

I had last minute request and Jocelyn came to my rescue! She was quick when responding and very professional. I even asked same day if Jocelyn could curl my hair and she was able to do that as well! I loved my Halloween makeup and my hair. I’d use Jocelyn again for sure! She arrived on time with a big comfy chair and everything needed based off of our conversation and picture I provided on what I wanted my makeup to look like.

    Please understand that Thumbtack charges us pros when you reach out to us, so please take that into consideration when requesting a quote!

Prices Traditional Makeup Application: $80 (lashes included) Airbrush Makeup Application: $90 (lashes included) Bridal Traditional Makeup Application: $100 (lashes included) Bridal Airbrush Makeup Application: $115 (lashes included) Travel $.50 a mile roundtrip -For travel over 75 miles (or 1.5 hours) I do have a requirement of a party size of at least 4 people (I am located in Norwich CT) Bridal Trial: $75 I require a 25% deposit to secure your spot! I will send you all the info on that when you reach out to me! You can choose any look you would like, whether it is super natural, or super glam! I do not charge less for natural looks vs glam looks, the price is always the same!

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    My goal is for every one of my clients to feel like my friends by the end of the appointment. I absolutely love learning about things that make you happy, that you love to do, your life etc. I want to build REAL relationships, because that is what I would want out of a makeup artist myself! As I start to learn likes and dislikes the process becomes easier, quicker and more enjoyable for both of us!

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am a self taught makeup artist, and very proud to be! I have over 7 years of experience and practice. As for formal education, I worked in the retail beauty industry for 3 years, I worked for Ulta as well as Clinique. I have been trained by both companies, sent to schools and trainings! I have learned so much through them about skin types and skin tones, and so much through my constant practice on my own. I also am certified in sanitation through the Sanitation Conversation.
