Wedding Makeup Artist Jen Kinford Jen Kinford

Owner / Esthetician & Makeup Artist

As a licensed esthetician, a trained painter, and a makeup artist, I have been fortunate to work with over 600 newlyweds throughout my 15 + year career. I have also had the privilege of working on numerous beauty, media, and editorial shoots and have been published in various magazines. In addition, I have worked with major TV networks such as NBC and Bravo, as well as multiple New York Fashion Weeks.

I received my Bachelor of Arts Degree, with a focus on painting and sculpture. This academic background gave me valuable expertise in color theory, textures, shadows, and highlights, which I now apply to my clients' faces as if they were my own canvas.

I am constantly researching new ingredients, products, and skincare lines to remain informed and improve my craft. In fact, I am so passionate about skincare that I believe I would have become a Chemist, formulating beauty products, in another life.

When I'm not working, I enjoy reading and collecting books, snuggling with my many animals, puzzles, video games, and binge-watching shows. As a homebody, nothing makes me happier than spending time with my husband and kids or blasting obnoxious music from my car to embarrass my high schooler!

LGBTQIA+ owned. All are welcomed and celebrated.
