    Jill is always pleasant and professional. She provides quality service in a timely fashion. I received wonderful skin care tips from her each time she performs services on my face for makeup. I am so thankful I connected with this beautiful person inside and out. She knows skin care, make up and techniques to make me always look beautiful.

    Jill is a great makeup artist. She is professional, personable and passionate. I had the pleasure of hiring Jill to do my makeup for an outdoor day wedding. I'm not much of a pink person but I loved and appreciated everything she did. The makeup lasted all day, even the lipstick! Jill is a beautiful person inside and out and it is reflected in her work. I highly recommend Jill and look forward to hiring her in the future.

    It is very rare that I meet people I endorse in terms of professionalism and excellence. In fact, most people, friends, coworkers, and family describe me as hard to please. I hired Jill to do my mom's makeup, as well as mine for my brother's wedding. She is a class act on all accounts. She was prompt in her arrival, accommodating, knowledgeable, and demonstrated great expertise. The application of makeup was flawless. In fact, the hired makeup artist for the bridal party approached me during the night and commented on how well my makeup was done. Both mom and I were looking and feeling our best. Thanks to Jill! P.S. I met her for the first time, and felt as if I has known her all along. I'll definitely be using her again.
    Jill F. Jun 25, 2015

    Karen, What can I say... you, your mom, and your aunt are dolls. I not only enjoyed making you all more beautiful on your brother's wedding day, I truly enjoyed the time I spent with you all. You are all not only beautiful on the outside you all are equally as beautiful on the inside. In quoting your husband.... I can't wait until the next occasion to make "you look like a movie-star!"

    I am 16 and I had Jill do my makeup for my junior prom. She was here and set up on time. I requested for a smokey eye for my makeup ans that's exactly what I got. She added her own twist with loose glitter and I received compliments on it all night! She is very clean and professional and knows what she is doing. I would recommend Jill to anyone looking to et a full face done.
    Jill F. Jun 25, 2015

    Maria, A special thanks for you and your mom choosing me... I can't wait to glam you up again for your senior prom! I'd be more than happy to service your friends too! So please spread the word. ;)

    Jill absolutely made me look and feel extraordinary for my special day and I received a ton of compliments!!! I am very particular about my makeup and Jill not only met, but exceeded my expectations. Looking forward to the next big occasion so I can go back to Jill again :)
    Jill F. Jun 25, 2015

    Thank you Faiza. I truly enjoyed doing your makeup for your last two big events as well as doing your sister-in-law and nieces makeup as well. You all have beautiful pallets to work with and looked drop dead gorgeous heading out to the party. I can't wait to July 30th when I get the chance to make 4 more of your relatives standout at the party. Thanks for trusting me with your beauty! Hugs & Kisses!!!

    I have had the pleasure of hiring Beauty Behold three times. Yes, three times. I noticed how beautifully done her makeup was and inquired. She was humbled and her professionalism spoke volumes. I contacted Jill Foster because I had an upcoming event and wanted my makeup to look stunning, but not overly done. At the consultation, Jill focused on what I was “trying” to convey and walked me through what she was doing every step of the way. When she was finished and I slowly glanced in the mirror, I was so shocked at how beautiful I looked that my eyes started filling with tears. I could not believe it was me. Not only was I now stunningly beautiful, it felt like I did not have any makeup on at all. All I could say was WOW! I did have a major dilemma… It was the consultation and I had nowhere to go except home. I stayed up very late that night because I could not stop looking at myself in the mirror and I did not want to take the makeup off. Jill Foster was a life saver for me. One of my girlfriends was throwing a masquerade ball for her 40th birthday. I let time slip by and a week before I could not find a mask. I called Beauty Behold and viola, Jill Foster came to my rescue. I wasn’t even sure what I wanted. She then asked me what I was wearing and I explained by dress. She was an absolute genius! She made a mask complete with jewels, pearls, eyelashes, and even helped me with putting up my hair accented with feathers to complete my look. It was 100% phenomenal. When I arrived back home, my husband was speechless (and he is a man of many words). Again, my only dilemma… My makeup stole the spotlight at the party -- oops. Everyone wanted to know who did my makeup. And while others got hot wearing their masks and dancing all night long, my face literally stayed flawless even after dancing nonstop for hours. I was so impressed that I took a selfie in the car on the way home to show Jill Foster. Jill also did my makeup for my best friend’s wedding. Others in the wedding party lost their eyelashes and sweating profusely, but not me. The makeup that Jill Foster applied was not only light and airy, but again, stayed on flawlessly all night. It’s just amazing. The professionalism and timeliness that Jill Foster displays will keep me coming back to Beauty Behold Makeup Artistry for years to come. She provides a service that is unmatched, makeup that does not feel heavy or irritate my skin, and she makes me feel so comfortable that when she’s finished, I’m like “you’re done already.”

    Michelle, Thank you for this beautiful review. You did convey to me in person how beautiful you felt but reading your words really validates why I do what I do. I am SO HAPPY that I contributed and made each and everyone of your occasions that much more memorable. Thanks again for such a shining review and I can't wait to makeup your face again! :)

  • Alicia M. Jan 22, 2015
    Jill Foster by far has been my favorite makeup artist. I have done local fashion show and usually I always get put in makeup that I hate the color of and it makes me feel a little un easy. Jill made me feel beautiful! She was on time and for the work she produced, I believe she took just the right amount of time to complete everything. She not only showed that she can pull off a natural look but an edgy one as well. I hope to work with Jill in the future.
    Jill F. Jun 25, 2015

    Awe what an honor to be called your favorite makeup artist. Thank you so much Alicia. I hope to work with you too again... the feeling is truly mutual!

  • Tewelde D. Jan 22, 2015
    I am a photographer in the New Jersey, New York area who shoots mostly fashion. I had the pleasure of collaborating with Beauty Behold on a beauty photo shoot and one thing that stood out was professionalism. The other was the space she gave me as the photographer to be creative, which made the photoshoot run seamlessly hence a timely conclusion. I will be working with her in the future.
    Jill F. Jun 25, 2015

    Twelde thanks for taking the time to write a review with regards to my makeup talent, expertise & professionalism. The feeling is so mutual. You are an awesome photographer as well! I enjoyed each and every time that we've had the opportunity to collaborate together. Can you believe it's been 4 times already! We truly make an awesome team! I can't wait to get the final pics from our last shoot as the proofs were fantastic! Anyone reading this response who may need a photographer in the future... I highly recommend Twelde Davis... so check him out @ www.medhinsphotography.com! Trust me you won't regret it! :)
