Beauty background: I started working in the beauty industry in 2009 in Metro Detroit as a professional makeup artist and event hair stylist.

Since then, my passion for all things makeup and hair continued to grow into what it is today.

“Jean Kim is an experienced hair and makeup specialist and I couldn't be happier with her services. She is reliable, fair and extremely professional. I had a difficult time articulating my vision for my engagement shoot, and Jean was able to manifest the dream look I had been yearning for! She provided suggestions the week before and was really flexible. Her set up and approach adhered to all COVID safety measures, so I feel comfortable the entire time. As we were finishing the service, my fiance mentioned he was insecure about his rosacea and Jean kindly agreed to help him out. She made him look completely natural and I have never seen my fiance so confident!

Highly recommended :) ”

“Jean was my makeup artist and hair stylist for my wedding. She did an excellent job-my makeup was flawless and my hair was beautiful. From the trial to the finishing touches on my wedding day, she asked the right questions to understand what I wanted and made sure her work matched my expectations.

She was also easy to work with and very communicative, from setting up my trial through finishing touches on my wedding day.

I highly recommend Jean for her makeup and hair services”

"Jean made me feel like an absolute princess on my wedding day! I didn't really know what I wanted, so Jean put me at ease and made great recommendations along the way.

I really appreciated her ‘chairside manner’ as she always checked in with me to make sure I was doing ok or was satisfied with the work she had done.

My husband absolutely loved the final result. Thank you so much, Jean!”


We’d be delighted to make you look & feel
beautiful on the big day.
