About the Owner
A native New Yorker, Jennifer’s passion for all things beauty started as a young girl. She remembers getting into her mother’s makeup and transforming her already beautiful doll babies into something even more magical. With her hands hidden behind her back, she would often approach her mother with the biggest grin and then yell ‘surprise’ revealing her latest lip-gloss and eye shadows. Even the visiting female relatives knew they were in for a treat and a ‘makeover’ whenever they stopped over.
As a young woman, Jennifer would be asked by close friends and family to do their makeup for special events and weddings. Her love for makeup bloomed with each face she completed - Makeup artistry was inevitable.
Years later, she has cultivated that passion for making people feel beautiful, confident and fabulous about themselves into a life-long pursuit. Jennifer took her natural artistic abilities further and did a self-study of masters like Sam Fine, Pat McGrath, and Kevyn Aucoin. Always wanting to refine her skill and technique, Jennifer has invested in makeup education from some well-known makeup artists including, Sam Fine, Renny Vasquez, Nicky Posley, and Tatiana Ward.
Jennifer's warm and bubbly personality puts her clients at ease when working with her. She takes the time to explain the “what’s” and “why’s” of her makeup application. Jennifer is very skilled in her ability to understand her clients’ requests and she creates a finished look that accentuates their own natural beauty. Jennifer’s aesthetic is “you, flawlessly”.
She now resides in Maryland with her husband Theodore and daughter, Anaya Nicole.
Tens Across the Board
From the start to finish of my wedding planning , Jennifer's services exemplified flexibility and top notch accommodation. She went above and beyond to ensure that we received the best prices and made seamless adjustments to bridal party changes and extra family member needs. Her web site allows for a most efficient account and payment management system. My trial session and day of wedding prep were thoroughly enjoyable and her refresher and follow up services added a special touch. The results for both were nothing short of amazing. Most importantly, the personality and professionalism of her team ensures the perfect mix of first class expertise and the relaxing feeling of being right at home with friends. Highly recommend her for ANY occasion!
Jennifer is Magic!
Though there were many magical moments on my Big Day, easily one of the best parts of my day was Jennifer Thorpe and her team. She put a little extra magic into my look and I couldn't believe how beautiful she made me! I was married on a HOT summer day this past summer and not only did my face look stunning (my husband thought so!!) but the makeup held up through an outdoor ceremony in outdoor photographs (about 2.5 hours in 100 degree heat!). I danced and sweated and laughed and cried-- and when the night was over and I got to my honeymoon suite, I looked just as beautiful as when she first finished. I am so grateful to Jennifer for ALL that she did for me on my big day-- in so many ways she went above and beyond to make sure that my look was flawless, my bridesmaids and mother looked stunning-- I seriously could not have asked for more. Of all of the vendors involved on my wedding day, Jennifer's professional service stood out above all others. Thank you!
