OUR MISSION at Beautiful Faces is to provide an exceptional knowledge of techniques matched with unparalleled customer service for everyone on their Special Day.

All of our Senior Artists have over 5 years’ experience with diverse skin tones, which is most important to us. We use high-end, luxury products that are transfer-resistant, have a minimum 10 + hour wear, and are designed specifically to withstand sweat, humidity, etc., while leaving your skin looking natural and flawless in photos.

The way my clients look in the mirror… and see their transformation is what motivates me and keeps me inspired every day. I believe applying make up to a face is like painting a canvas. My job is to create a masterpiece!

You may be thinking: “I can do my own makeup, why hire a pro?” Well, is that how you want to look, like you did your own makeup? Or would you rather look like you just walked off the red carpet?

I will take your vision to the next level…you will be stunning!

A Glowing Review by Lizzie M

Talented Team That Made Me Feel Gorgeous

I have absolutely nothing but amazing things to say about Janis. She made me feel the most beautiful I have ever felt in my life, and every part of my experience with her was easy and enjoyable.

Before getting into my experience, I’d like to share just a few things of note that may help other brides in their decision to book (which they should!):

Affordability: Janis was by far one of the most reasonably-priced Artist I spoke with. She totally understands that brides are often charged an arm and a leg for hair and makeup services and her pricing was incredibly reasonable – my bridesmaids agreed with me.

Cleanliness: I was a COVID bride, and pretty attuned to the need for brushes to be cleaned / only used once. This was never a concern with Janis as her professionalism and experience showed in how she implements hygienic practices.

The look: I am NOT a makeup person. I have super fair skin and generally don’t wear much aside from mascara. I told this to Janis and mentioned that I wanted to look as natural as possible, but with some elevated glam for my day. She totally listened to what I was saying, and even adjusted my eyes / lips to be not as heavy so I’d feel more comfortable. She took copious notes from my trial, and I ended up feeling the most Beautiful I ever have on my wedding day. She has a ton of experience, and it certainly shows in her level of talent!

Now for some of the other reasons I can’t say enough good things. First, Janis was super responsive. She was easy to get a hold of, and even reached out to me preemptively to book my trial date/time when she noticed her calendar was filling up. She was also very understanding and did not charge me when I needed to reschedule during the pandemic (which was soo appreciated). When I came to her home for my trial, she baked blueberry muffins and offered me one! Which just shows how warm and inviting she is. Lastly, my sister-in-law, who was one of my bridesmaids, had begun chemotherapy in the months preceding the wedding. Janis told me she would make sure she felt beautiful. Janis gave her a look she loved, and Jojo (who did our hair) styled her wig in a gorgeous waterfall braid. It made my day to know she felt so Beautiful and I owe that to Janis and Jojo.

As mentioned, Jojo did our hair and was recommended by Janis. She is also amazingly talented, and super sweet. One of my friends, whose hairstylist bailed on her, recently booked Jojo for her wedding per my recommendation. Before meeting Jojo, I thought up-dos just did not look good on me. But she took my input and gave me a style that made me feel elegant and beautiful.

Thank you, Janis and Jojo! Me and my bridesmaids absolutely adore you.

a little about..


My experience includes over 15 years of working as a professional makeup artist for Weddings, Photo Shoots, and Fashion Shows and individual makeup instructions. My goal is to provide you with the care and individual attention that you deserve.

By using the latest trends in makeup artistry, the Airbrushing technique can achieve a flawless look without the heavy feel or look that comes from traditional foundations. Airbrushing is a high pigment, humidity resistant, long wearing coverage that blends seamlessly with all skin tones. Your make up will look natural, radiant and “camera ready”.


My daughter is still on cloud nine with her “look” on her special day!!

We are so thankful and thrilled that we had the honor and fortune to have met Janis. She is a joy! My daughter and I are very particular and so our search needed to find someone who truly understands our needs. From the first moment my daughter and I met Janis we knew we had found someone extraordinarily special. I can’t stop singing her praises. Janis is more than a phenomenal person and makeup artist. As we got to know her, we were more than correct in putting our trust and my daughter’s special wedding day in her most capable hands.

She is truly caring, most supportive and a fantastic professional.  You could not find anyone better for your wedding day or “day of beauty”. She truly listens!! She gives her very best in all aspects and beyond. She even stepped in and helped us in a delicate situation during the preparation of the wedding and during the morning of the day of the wedding.

Not only from the beauty aspects of the business, but as a human being, Janis only wants the best for her clients. You will not find better. She is honest and loving. If it is in her power to help in other areas to support the bride, she is there! She will put you at ease from the start.

She goes well beyond the expectations with great enthusiasm and a calm approach. 

In addition, her hair and makeup team will certainly deliver your “Dream Style

 Janis dedicated her time specifically to my daughter and calmly transformed the rest of us with great ease. Amanda styled the bridal party’s hair in such a beautiful romantic look.

How beautiful everyone looked! Flawless! 

So I highly recommend that you look no further than Janis (and her talented team) for all your wedding makeup and hair needs, as well as any special occasion.

She is Super Talented !!!!
