There’s no doubt that Jolie knows what she’s doing when it comes to make-up. In all her pictures, whether for a photo shoot, or a real wedding her brides look beautiful and flawless. Plus it definitely doesn’t hurt that her reviews are amazing, I’ve never heard a bride offer anything other than amazing words of praise about her and her work. Here’s a little more about her business, Jolie Artistry:website, Facebook, Wedding Wire
Where do you live, work, and play?
I live in Mission, KS and have clients from Topeka to Independence, Mo. I’m always on the go, because I specialize in on-site wedding applications. When I’m not working, I’m with my taking my two boys to the pool, the park, ball games and museums.
I have been interested in makeup since I was in high school. I knew I either wanted to be a fashion photographer or makeup artist. I started doing makeup right out of high school for major brands like Lancome.
When and why did you decide to start your business, Jolie Artistry?
I have worked for every line that you can think of, but I knew I wanted to do my own thing and start my own company where I could express my artistic side! I started my own Jolie Artistry just over 4 years ago, but have been freelancing for 8 years now.photo via Tom Foley Photography
What’s your favorite type of job to do make-up for other than weddings, and why?
Besides weddings, my favorite is editorial. I just did the KC Magazine Fashion Issue coming out in August and have my work featured in the recent KC Weddings, and Her Life magazines. I have always been influenced by fashion and photography; that is why I love my job so much because I can use these sources of inspiration to achieve the bride’s desired look. I would say that I specialise in the “beauty” part of makeup artistry. I love bringing out a woman’s already attractive features.
I would say to future brides that it is never to early to find a makeup artist for your upcoming wedding. I have so many inquiries about popular Saturdays that I must refer else where. At least make sure that you set up a meeting or trial with that artist so that you know you to have a connection. I truly am blessed to have the most amazing brides.
