ABOUT:

I’m a professional makeup artist with over 14 years experience working in Chicago and New York.

I’ve always been drawn to fashion– as a little girl my mother filled our home with rich and exotic fabrics and designed her own dresses and gowns. She was the inspiration in my love and appreciation for fashion and makeup.

I studied cosmetology at Truman College and fashion design at Columbia College, worked with a variety of photographers and modeling agencies in Chicago, Boston, DC, Miami and NYC, and have been privileged to do makeup for Americas Next Top Model and work in the beautiful madness that is Fashion Week in NYC.

Whether it’s fashion, commercial, video or bridal, I love the opportunity to help people achieve their desired look.

Sincerely,

Jolie

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:

Fashion Week mention in The Huffington Post for Isis King debut collection Feb 2013.


“Jolie is always awesome to work with. We hit it off right away when we first met on set of my photoshoot in Chicago. She showed her extraordinary makeup application skills when she later flew to NYC to do makeup for my Fashion Week presentation. She managed to execute the dramatic makeup look on all 10 of my models in an extremely short period of time. Months later she did my makeup for an appearance and even accompanied me for touchups. Jolie is professional, kind, timely, and one of the most dependable Makeup Artist I know.”

“Jolie totally blew me away! I’m a fellow makeup artist and EXTREMELY picky about who I let work on me, and Jolie completely exceeded my expectations. I hired her to do my makeup for a co-worker’s wedding party. She really understood my vision of what I wanted because she took the time to ask a lot of questions do a full consultation before we started. The finished product was exactly what I wanted. Everyone at the event I went to was amazed at how good I looked. I felt beautiful, and I couldn’t have been happier! Highly recommended!”

-Emily Nill / Client


“I wanted someone that could do my wedding day makeup off-site and help me to feel comfortable on such a big important day. Jolie was perfect! She got to our hotel early and paid incredible  attention to detail. I really appreciated that prior to the wedding we had been able to schedule a practice session. It helped us try out some makeup and find some colors that were a great fit. I wanted a simple, natural and polished look and she did just that. I highly recommend Jolie for your wedding and special event makeup needs!”
