MEET THE TEAM
The founder and owner of Kiss This Makeup, Jenna has been providing professional services for special events, print, TV, and film for over a decade. Her company has grown exponentially in recent years, becoming a veritable one-stop, regional beauty powerhouse. Jenna chalks this success up to her team’s remarkable customer service, extensive knowledge of the industry, and marked professionalism.
Having worked extensively in film, video, print, and runway, some of Jenna’s most prized work includes a photoshoot for Vogue Italia, working alongside Hasselblad Master and Pulitzer Prize Photographers, creating looks for music videos that feature artists like Enrique Iglesias, working behind the scenes at Latin Billboard Music Awards, developing makeup design for feature films, and working on fashion shows for Luca Luca, Botegga Contessa, Bulgari Jewelry, and Cynthia Rowley.
Jenna is also honored to have been part of more than 1,500 weddings since 2009. Her solutions-based approach, calm demeanor, strong organizational skills, and reliability — not to mention her passion for her art — have grown her brand as a trusted, go-to source for beauty packages of all sizes.
While she spends a lot of her time developing a business that now includes services far beyond the standard — including hair extensions, hair accessories, skin and nutrition care, hair cuts and color, threading, and waxing — Jenna is still a devoted makeup artist and hair professional at heart, and is a master at color matching for skin tones, and getting curls to last, last, last.
She loves getting to be a part of someone’s very special day, going through their emotions with them, hearing love stories, and making them feel like the most beautiful version of themselves.

I had Jenna on the day of my wedding do my hair and makeup! I have to say, Jenna and her team are 5 stars and beyond! She was the fourth person I contacted about my wedding hair and makeup for my big day. The only reason being was that I had not ever heard of Kiss This Makeup until the catering manager recommended her and the Kiss This Makeup team to me. I lived in NY but my wedding was in Florida so I needed someone who was willing to do a trial for me at a reasonable price on a Saturday and Sunday. Jenna went above and beyond to make it happen for me with short notice!! I had a vision for what I wanted to look like on my big day and everything from beginning to end was seamless and amazing with Jenna. She executed the look exactly to my specifications which truly takes talent! (It is really amazing that there are bridal makeup companies out there that don’t know how to do a beautiful natural makeup look). Once I had the trial I knew I wanted to book with Jenna and have her team work on my large bridal party and family (her girls did hair and makeup for 11 people)!! ALL of my family and bridesmaids looked absolutely stunning as well! Her team was early on the big day and everything was easy effortless and stress free. I also purchased a hairpiece from Jenna and she had a great selection to choose from! I added on the service to have Jenna stay after my ceremony to touch up my hair and makeup. I have to say I still look at my pictures from my wedding day in awe of how amazing I looked and how beautiful my girls looked as well! If you are thinking of booking with Jenna and her team do not hesitate!
Amazing staff, beautiful bridal looks!
I booked Jenna and her team for my June 12, 2020 wedding as soon as found them and I could not have made a better decision! For the quality you see in every photo I was expecting to pay way more than we did. Also, I had such a unique situation during my wedding planning and Jenna was so very responsive and accommodating. My original venue cancelled on us TWO WEEKS before the wedding due to COVID. Not only did Jenna rearrange everything for a new date and new venue, but she worked with me on adjusting pricing and services since I had multiple bridesmaids drop out last minute as well. I cannot say enough great things about Jenna. I booked her for a one-on-one service as well as for touch ups and bridal valet and I could not imagine doing it any other way! She stayed with me for every photo taken before the ceremony and was making sure my hair and makeup looked flawless in every single one. She was there to give photo tips and even carried my train to all the different locations! I highly recommend booking the bridal valet and touchups to every bride with Jenna, she truly went above and beyond! The rest of her team was also AMAZING with my bridal party! They were creative and knew exactly what hair and makeup looks would work best for every individual person and we all left the bridal suite looking and feeling our absolute best. Thank you all so much for a wonderful experience and amazing looks!
Felt So Beautiful!
Wow, I cannot say enough positive things about Jenna and her team. I reached out to her early on in the pandemic and throughout my planning, Jenna was awesome with my 3 venue changes. Not only was she understanding, she offered to send me venue ideas of places she knew that were reopened following the pandemic. Dorthy was my hair/make-up artist for the big day. I did a trial with her about 2 months out and gave some feedback that she took and crushed it on my wedding day. I've never felt so beautiful as I did on that day. Dorthy was so professional and made me feel so relaxed throughout the day. Could recommend Kiss This Makeup more!
Went above and beyond!
I looked around quite a bit before coming upon Kiss This Makeup. My wedding was moved due to COVID but they were very understanding and helpful during the changes it brought on. I had Jenna do my hair & makeup along with keeping her for 3 extra hours for touch ups. At the trial, my sister (MOH) and I were both very happy with the services we received so then I booked them right away. I did not have a hair piece at the time but Jenna was able to recommend what to get and she also sells hair pieces to use for weddings. I highly recommend keeping Jenna for touch ups! I booked her for touchups based on reviews I had read and honestly was the best decision I made. Having our wedding in south FL includes a lot of heat and humidity but Jenna was there able to consistently fix my makeup during pictures and even re-curl my hair before ceremony along with her using the hair dryer to help cool me down. Jenna went above and beyond to keep my look intact during photos and before she left for the day. Definitely book them and also add the hourly touch ups!!
Best There Ever Was
I absolutely loved my wedding hair and makeup thanks to kiss this makeup. ALL of their staff was fabulous and truly reliable. My whole bridal party, MOG, and MOB look gorgeous and people complimented them the whole night. 10/10 would recommend upgrading your package to the bridal valet and having your grooms hair done. Also try to have Madison if you are in Chicago. Madison is a gem and instantly becomes your best friend.
