Assistant wedding Makeup Artist
Jenna grew up in Duanesburg, NY, and now lives in Albany with her friend—and outstanding photographer—Lauren. Jenna spends a lot of her free time with her boyfriend, Jake, who lives in Utica, and they both love to work out doing high intensity interval training—that is when she isn’t busy glamming beauties for all sorts of special occasions, of course! She graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Business Management in 2013 from the University at Albany. Jenna was very proud of herself for completing college and she loves the management side of business, which led her to her current full-time position as a bank manager, but she also felt that she had to pursue her dream of becoming a makeup artist.
Jenna has always had a passion for makeup, a passion for applying makeup (to herself and to anyone whom would allow her to put makeup on them!), for shopping for makeup (she can tell you about her first visit to Sephora when she was only in the 8th grade), for looking into the latest makeup trends, and for experimenting with different looks (from subtle to bold!). So, after achieving her degree from UAlbany she decided to make a move to begin working in the beauty industry. Jenna studied bridal and fashion/beauty makeup at the Make Up Designory in New York City, where she graduated in 2014. Since then she has worked as a freelance make up artist doing bridal, prom, fashion, and glam makeup before joining The Make-Up Lounge.
