About Jen:

Jen Castelo is a Southern California makeup artist based in Long Beach. In her early years, she was strongly influenced by her creative and artistic family and picked up hobbies that included drawing, crafting and painting. During her high school years, she took several art classes but never saw her artistry as something that she could pursue as a serious career. She attended the University of Southern California and graduated in 2004 with a Bachelor of Arts in International Relations and Advertising.

After college, she got a job in marketing; however, she simultaneously nourished her hunger for creativity by doing makeup for friends and family for fun. In 2006, she was asked to do makeup for a international pageant and was flown overseas. On this life changing trip, Jen’s passion for art was reignited as she discovered that she wanted to pursue a career doing what she loved. By 2010, she received her makeup certification and her freelance business blossomed thereafter.

Now, with 10 years of makeup experience under her belt and working full time as a makeup entrepreneur,  she has been published in magazines, e-commerce websites, worked with several celebrities from soap opera stars to comedians, and has collaborated with clients such as Hyundai, Blizzard Entertainment, Wonka, Butterfinger, Revlon, Simple Green, Kaiser Permanente, InStyler, Vice News, HBO and Sudara Goods. 

Her years of professional expertise will put you at ease when you hire her for your next project or event. For rates and availability, please contact Jen Castelo at: 714.350.7853 or jencmakeupartist@gmail.com
