Jenessa did a wonderful job the day of my wedding. My makeup looked absolutely beautiful and so did that of my bridesmaids and the moms. It did not look overdone at all, very natural, and when we got the photos back, I couldn’t have been happier! I would certainly recommend Jenessa as your makeup artist. 🙂


Jenessa is super responsive and easy to communicate with! She immediately picked up on what my vision was and brought it to life. I wanted something that didn’t seem far from what I usually wear, but a little more bold to stand out in pictures and last the entire night…and it did! Thank you, Jenessa!


I had a great experience with Jenessa as my make up artist for my September 2016 wedding. She was easy to communicate with from the beginning and I scheduled my make up trail right away. I knew she was the right choice when she listened to all of my make up fears before starting. When she was done my mom was practically in tears. Booked her for the big day on the spot. My make up from the trial stayed put during one of the hottest days in July.

The day of, she was quick and efficient working through my mom, MIL, 3 friends and myself. Each gal had an airbrushed finish complete with a set of lashes.

Overall great experience and it was so nice that she came to me at the hotel rather than having to run around from salon to salon. Would definitely use her again and recommend her to anyone in the Chicagoland area.


Jenessa is PHENOMENAL! I used her services for my wedding day. She was able to do makeup for seven women, including me, in just a few hours. She was very poised, prepared, and confident. Additionally, she made me feel very calm. She was great to talk to and very fun to be around. I would love to use her services again in the future. Highly recommend her!


Of all the things that I had to do for my wedding, finding a makeup artist turned out to be the hardest?! I tried a number of different artists/makeup lines and the look was just never right. The makeup was either too light or too heavy. Jenessa was recommended to me by my wedding planner and she did a fantastic job. The trial make up was perfect and struck just the right tone of light airy makeup that still looked good in pictures. Jenessa was responsible, responsive and had all-around great energy. I highly recommend her for any bride who wants to look their best on their wedding day.


Jenessa did a great job with my makeup for my wedding! She was extremely professional and so easy to work with! The makeup was perfect and I felt like a beautiful bride that day! Also, she was extremely efficient. She was able to get my makeup, two moms, and 5 of my bridesmaids in the timeframe we gave her and did a great job on everyone!! The makeup lasted all day and night on a hot August day/outdoor wedding!


Jenessa is professional, reliable and did an amazing job for my wedding this past June. I would highly recommend her to anyone that is looking for a phenomenal makeup artist!


Jenessa is a fantastic makeup artist. She helped make everyone look so beautiful. She is flexible and will come to you to help you get ready wherever you are. She was on time and a true professional. I would definitely recommend to anyone else who is looking for a great makeup artist.


Makeup Artistry by Jenessa Blaine is amazing!!!! Jenessa did my wedding makeup, as well as the make-up for my bridesmaids and mom. From the beginning it was an awesome experience. Jenessa came to me for my make-up trial, which was awesome, especially because a lot of places want you to travel to them. She worked with me to create a look that I loved, and really made me feel comfortable instantly. The day of the wedding, Jenessa was a dream to work with. Everyone loved their make-up, it photographed beautifully, but didn’t look harsh in person. It was especially impressive that she can work with all skin tones and skin types extremely well. Our makeup lasted the entire day- and looked flawless the entire day!! She truly is one of the best!


Jenessa did my makeup for my wedding in August. She was nothing short of AMAZING to work with!!! She was prompt arriving, efficient in getting done and the look she crafted for me was exactly what I wanted. She was flawless in her application and the makeup stayed set in place ALL DAY through a hot Chicago day & lots of photography, venue changes, etc! I was incredibly happy. She is a pleasure to work with, very personable, and worth every penny. Work with Jenessa. You’ll be so glad you did!
