Jennifer Paredes made all 10 of my bridesmaids, my mom, myself AND my cousin absolutely stunning on my special day! From the first trial through several changes, Jennifer worked with me until I was truly happy with my look. I normally do not wear a lot of makeup and got a great balance with her patience and creativity. If you want the best, call Jae Lee!!

I used Jae Lee Paredes for makeup for my wedding on 1-4-14. It was a great choice. I wanted dark makeup since I wear a lot of makeup daily and with Jae Lee I got exactly that. She was fun to be around, open to anything and everything I wanted and fast and efficient. I am very, very picky and I was exceptionally satisfied. Expectations exceeded!!!

Jae Lee provided bridal makeup application services to me, my bridal party and mothers on my wedding day. This was my first experience using a makeup artist, and I could not have been more pleased. She and her assistant came to us at our hotel, and the whole experience was so easy and we all looked fantastic. Jae has a wealth of knowledge about how to make you look fabulous in photos, and she also does a great job of taking feedback to make sure you feel great about how you look in person as well. In addition she is quick to respond to emails/questions and overall great to work with! A perfect choice for wedding makeup!

When I started planning my wedding, I decided I really wanted to have airbrush makeup for the wedding day. I searched for makeup artists, and found Jae Lee Parades. She was highly recommended, and had great reviews. I met her for a trial of my wedding makeup. I liked the look, but later decided maybe I should do something more dramatic. I contacted Jennifer, and she scheduled me for another trial. After the second trial, I absolutely loved the way I looked.
On the day of the wedding, Jennifer and her assistant showed up early and did my makeup along with my three bridesmaids and my mom. My babysitter didn't show up, and my baby was screaming pretty much the whole time. Jennifer was so friendly and patient. By the time she was finished, we all looked amazing!! The day after the wedding, Jennifer came to my house to do my makeup again for our day after pictures.
I love how I looked in my wedding pictures, and I am so happy I used Jae Lee Parades! The entire experience was amazing! I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of professional makeup!

What a great experience! Jennifer was an absolute pleasure and a true professional. From my first communication to my trial run to the Wedding Day, she was reliable, responsive and professional - plus a pleasure. Jennifer's skill was obvious she made me look and feel absolutely beautiful and as the other reviews indicate my makeup lasted 24 hours! Originally there were 5 of us and when my Mother in Law and Sister in Law saw how beautiful Jennifer's makeup application was, they asked for their makeup to be done by Jennifer as well! Jennifer was on time, she made us all feel so comfortable and spent an entire morning with us, listening to our requests and worked her magic on all of us. I highly recommend her and without a doubt trust her for any special events I will have in the future. A true professional talented and skilled!

Jae was absolutely perfect! As someone who doesn't wear a lot of make up on a daily basis, I was worried about my make up not looking natural. Jae did a wonderful job applying my make up in a way that looked natural and flawless. She took her time, paid great attention to detail, was very personable and made the morning of my wedding fun and stress-free! I was extremly happy with the way my make up looked and it lasted all night - even through my tears at our ceremony! If you are looking for a great make up artist look no further, Jae is your girl!

I could not have more happy to have Jen as a part of our wedding. Due to inclement weather there were a lot of things that did not go as planned for our wedding and it was so reassuring to have such a professional, talented artist to ensure that the make up for myself, my bridesmaids, and my mother was one thing we would have no concerns over. During the trial Jen was attentive to my requests and very understanding of what I wanted. She is knowledgeable, well-equipped , uses fantastic products, and clearly has a natural talent for make-up artistry. I would highly recommend Jae Lee Paredes Makeup to anyone that is seeking a look that you just will not get from going to your local make up counter or salon.

I am so happy that I picked Jae to do the makeup for my mom, mother-in-law, bridesmaids and myself for my wedding this past weekend. She was very professional yet personable at the same time so each of the girls felt comfortable with her, she listened and incorporated each of their personal styles into their makeup, and she was patient. She transformed me into a beautiful bride!! I went for a bridal trial before the wedding and she was very accomodating on scheduling a time that worked best for my matron of honor and I plus she answered all our questions and took the time to find out exactly what we were picturing for my big day.
Do yourself a favor and please book Jae to do your makeup, you will be nothing less than pleased!

Jennifer was absolutely amazing to work with!! I found her on wedding wire, and I can certainly say that I am so happy I chose her to do my make up for me! She did an OUTSTANDING job! I have never felt so beautiful! at first I was a little hesitant with the price because I also wanted a trial done, but it was well worth it. The make up she provides you just makes your bridal look, look complete!! I was so pleased with my make up and I couldn't even thank her enough. I didn't get in touch with her until late August, beginning of September and my wedding was the 21st of September. She responded right away to me and she was already booked that day but being that my ceremony start was later, she told me she would squeeze me in and come to my hotel and do my make up for me with no problems at all! She was, and is such a nice person and she makes you feel very comfortable! She is up for anything you want, she's great and I would definitely recommend her work to everybody!!!!! :) and the make up lasted all night long!!!..and the next day!

I saw her beautiful work on her website and knew instantly that I needed to use her on my big day! The trial a month before the wedding went smooth which made me feel even more comfortable about the big day. On the wedding day she showed up on time, was so much fun to talk to and of course, did a fantastic job on everyone's makeup! I highly recommend Jae Lee!

Jae Lee did a fantastic job! We met about a month prior to the wedding for a trial run so that I knew what to expect the day of the wedding. On my wedding day, Jae Lee arrived on time, was helpful, and was very friendly and professional. I looked simply amazing on my wedding day, and I received so many compliments. Jae Lee was able to travel to my house, and she also did a fantastic job on my bridesmaids' make up as well!

I booked Jae Lee for my wedding. She did my make-up as well as the bridesmaids' make-up. She was so sweet and accommodating. She did a fantastic job with my make-up and the girls make-up as well. She was on time, very professional, and did exactly what everyone wanted. I loved the airbrush! It gave a perfect touch to our final looks! She was amazing and I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to have their make-up done! :)

I used Jae Lee Paredes Mapeup Artistry for my wedding. I thought Jennifer was great! She was so sweet and easy to work with. She did the makeup trial for my wedding shower and I got rave reviews, so I was excited for Jennifer to do my makeup for my wedding! I was not disappointed. I loved the final result and was told my makeup looked perfect and could not have looked any better! My bridal party was thrilled with the way their makeup looked. Half of the bridesmaids got airbrush and the other half didn't. Both types had a beautiful final product. One member of my bridal party had never gotten her makeup done before and was so impressed with the way everyone looked she decided to get her done. Needless to say she looked beautiful and was really satisfied. I think Jennifer is worth the price and I would definitely recommend her to any bride!

Jae Lee traveled to my bridal party on the day of my wedding and did an incredible job! She was professional, on time, and really listened to what each girl wanted. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a make up artist!

Jae provided makeup services to me, my mother, and my bridesmaids on my wedding day. Not only was she professional and worked quickly, but she made us all look our best! I never thought I could get airbrush makeup and still look like myself- just a better version! She even took the time to give my groom a touch up before the ceremony! I was so surprised when I got her price quote after viewing her portfolio. For the level of her talents, I couldn't believe how reasonable her prices were! I couldn't have been happier with her services and would recommend her to anyone looking for makeup!

Jae Lee is amazing and so accommodating. I waited until the last minute to find a makeup artist and she was able to fit me into her schedule with no problem. She is so nice and amazing to work with. She knows how to make you look gorgeous on your wedding day. I had myself and 4 other girls and she gave us all a different look but we all looked great. She keeps the makeup simple yet stunning for a wedding. She doesn't make you look like a clown and works with you until your happy with your look. I would highly recommend Jae Lee.

I almost didn't book a makeup artist, because I didn't think I needed one. After my trial, I can honestly say I could not have been more wrong! Jae made me feel more beautiful than I have ever felt in my whole life, and did a wonderful job with my entire bridal party. My husband could not get over how I looked- I looked great, and it lasted ALL day! Jae is professional, flexible, and a true artist. If you're looking for a makeup artist, look no further!

I do not wear a lot of makeup in my everyday life. For my wedding day I wanted to look natural but enhanced. She really listened to what I wanted. I was also provided with a touch up bag. Everyone's make up looked amazing and the price was very reasonable. I have and would recommend Jae Lee for any Pittsburgh area bride.

Jennifer was wonderful! I had a trial run which paid off! I completely changed my look! She is so attentive and listens to what you want! Be careful about pictures you want to look like, and go with your gut! I ended up picking a natural airbrush look...and couldn't have been happier! Guests said my face was like a china doll! No shine the whole day...absolutely flawless! Book her you won't regret it!!

I used Jae Lee Paredes Makeup Artistry for my wedding day and I could not be happier. Jennifer is an amazing makeup artist and made me look and FEEL gorgeous on my big day. I set up a trial appointment about a month before my wedding. Jennifer told me to bring in some inspiration photos and also a photo of myself showing my normal day-to-day makeup. I told her that I don’t wear a WHOLE lot of makeup normally, so I didn’t want to go crazy with my look on the wedding day. Jennifer listened and gave me a naturally polished look. I was completely satisfied and told her to go ahead with the same thing for the wedding day! Jennifer showed up to my hotel where we were getting ready earlier than our scheduled time (which was awesome). She did my makeup and also my Mom’s (which was a last minute request). We chose to get the airbrush application, thank God for whoever invented that! My skin looked flawless and the makeup really did last all day. It was an insanely hot and humid 90 degree day, and after doing a bunch of photos outside, I was worried my makeup would be dripping off my face. Amazingly enough it stayed put! I looked exactly the same at noon as I did at midnight when I washed it off. The services were a little pricey (because she travelled on-site to do makeup for only 2 people), but you get what you pay for – totally worth it. If your entire bridal party uses the services, the per-person cost is much lower. I highly recommend Jae Lee Paredes Makeup Artistry for your makeup on your wedding day. Thank you again, Jennifer, for making me look my best. I cannot wait to see my photos!
