ASTONISH: How did you get started with makeup? What inspired you to start?

JENNIFER: Unlike many little girls, I didn’t have the opportunity of rummaging through my mother’s cosmetics bag. I was always intrigued by makeup. But I came from a very conservative family so I never grew up around makeup. It wasn’t until I was in college when I let my creative juices flow. I found that bringing out the hidden beauty of somebody is a work of art in itself. After countless weddings, photoshoots, and fashion shows, my love affair with makeup continued to grow.

ASTONISH: What can we find in your makeup kit?

JENNIFER: I get the most unique results when mixing different products together to create a new combination of color and texture. Whether I’m backstage at a fashion show or changing looks at a photoshoot, I love using products that can get the job done fast and effortlessly. Some of my essential products include clear gloss, cream shadows, and a rich black eye liner. You really don’t need a train case full of products to create beautiful looks!

ASTONISH: What’s your current makeup inspiration right now?

JENNIFER: Beautiful skin is always in! Although I love being inspired by current makeup trends, I like to give them my own unique twist. I’m currently obsessed with pairing a boldly stained lip with gorgeous, glowing skin. Dab a little bit of the lip product on your cheeks and you’ll have a nice rosy flush of color. For night time, add a bit of gloss on the center of your pout and you’re golden!
