Makeup with Jenna: Jennas makeup aesthetic is polished and timeless. In her own words ” Brides come to me because they want to look like themselves but ‘better’. They don’t want to be unrecognizable to their fiancé when they are walking down the aisle instead the opt to look like the best version of THEM. My personal approach to makeup is less can be more depending on the clients vision, a polished timeless makeup look does not mean LESS makeup it simply means the artistry style will be different”. At the end of the day, clients come to her because they trust she will execute their vision regardless of the whether or not it is a fresh, minimal look or a Red Carpet glam.

Services with MBJ Team of beauty specialists: All beauty specialists have demonstrated a professional level of makeup artistry and hair styling. Makeup artists can execute a full face of natural aesthetic makeup to soft glam makeup. Hairstylists are licensed and can create a low bun chignon to glam waves.

To all the new couples, if you are looking for Quality Professional Service, someone who truly listens and able to make you look stunning but still as yourself, also with reasonable pricing, Jenna is the one that your are looking for!!! Mark my words. I found Jenna on the Knot kind on the last minute which was only about one month apart from my wedding day. Jenna replied me right after my initial inquiry with a very professional approach, we met on the second day for detail discussion and I decided right away to have her be a part for my wedding. I don’t usually wear makeups, so I was pretty worried about being put on makeup and don’t look like myself at all. But after checking Jenna’s works, my concerns all went away. She listened carefully to my stories and my ideas, and was able to give me suggestions that matches me and my fiancee perfectly. So, we chose Jenna with no doubt. On the wedding day, Jenna and her partner showed up exactly on the scheduled time. They were fast and did really good job on our makeups and hairs. They made us looked like princesses came from fairy tales. The wedding was so perfect. Everybody loves how our makeups and hair matches our gowns. Even until today, we still feel like living in the dreams! I can’t thank enough to Jenna and her partner’s beautiful work! Thank you so much for making our big day so wonderful.

I worked with Jenna twice this year. First for my engagement photos then for a boudoir session. Both times she was easy to work with and did an excellent job with my makeup! I love my pictures and the fact that my makeup looked so great! I would def recommended her and work with her again! She's also on time and easy to get in contact with if you need something. She's also very professional and takes her work seriously!

I went for a bold, dark look for my big day. Although many told me it was a bad decision, Jenna did not hesitate in supporting my request. She was very friendly and professional. She executed my look beyond my expectations.
