Hello! I’m Jen and I’m a freelance makeup artist based in Long Beach, CA. My job is to make people look good without long hours at the gym and plastic surgery. Jokes aside, I love the process of creating art with a team of talented folks - soup to nuts. Being an makeup artist for a living is my dream come true. If I were to describe my makeup style in three words, it would be: clean, glowy and fresh.

My peers often tell me I’m quick with my brushes. I’m also quick to open up a bag of potato chips on set at 10am. Other than that, my “set”iquette is pretty darn professional. Also, if you ask me to DJ on Spotify, be prepared to listen to 90’s hip-hop and R&B all day long.
