AWESOME WORK! Throughout the eighteen months of our engagement, I worked with Jae Lee several times. I opted to have my make-up professionally done for our engagement photos, and so many friends and family complimented my make-up. I do not often wear make-up (like only several times a year), so I was initially weary of having make-up done because it wasn't something I did often and I wasn't used to seeing myself "all dolled up." Luckily, Jae Lee was great at listening to what I wanted and helping to enhance my natural beauty rather than using so much product that I did not even look like myself anymore. Note: I would definitely recommend a trial before your wedding day! The morning of your wedding day is so chaotic and full of emotions that the last thing you'll want to be worrying about is whether or not you will like your make-up. During the trail, Jae Lee is very organized and carefully notes what products she has used on you so that she can replicate the same look on your wedding day. The morning of my wedding was particularly chaotic (at least for me!). My grandmother was sick and I went to visit her that morning, so I wasn't even home when Jae Lee got to the house to start doing everyone's make-up. And you know what? She didn't miss a beat! She was totally professional and just jumped right in, working on a bridesmaid until I got there to check in with her. Jae Lee arrives on time and is efficient so that plenty of time was left to take pictures and have a few family moments before heading to the church. I'm a generally anxious person, but Jae Lee is calm and personable, which helped to ease wedding day nerves :) On top of being good at her job, she's an entrepreneur and an overall inspiration to women everywhere!
Flawless and Beautiful!!Reviewed on 4/25/2014 Jamie T
I found Jae Lee online and noticed all the wonderful reviews. I contacted her and she responded to me immediately. She was so amazing. After the trial I decided I wanted my eyemakeup a little heavier. She changed it for me with no complaints and it was amazing. On the day of my wedding, she did the makeup for myself and my bridesmaids. My junior bridesmaid decided she wanted some more makeup after everyone was done and Jae Lee responded to her with no questions asked. I had 2 bridesmaids switch to the airbrush makeup and fake eyelashes. Jae was ready for whatever we wanted or needed. Our makeup was flawless! I would highly recommend anyone to Jae for their makeup. She is so personable and does a fantastic job! We all looked amazing when she was finished
Beautiful and FlawlessReviewed on 4/03/2014 Maura B
Jennifer did my makeup for my wedding on December 28, 2013. I chose Jennifer because I liked that she did the airbrush makeup, a trial session, and was not ridiculously expensive like some of the other makeup artists. Jennifer was very flexible with planning my makeup trial session and very open to hearing what kind of look I wanted for my wedding. I have to admit that I was a little picky with how I wanted my makeup, but Jennifer made my skin look flawless and beautiful! I also was nervous about the fake eyelashes, as I have never worn them before, but I was OBSESSED(!!!) with the way they looked! Jennifer also did the makeup for my mom and bridesmaids, who loved their makeup as well! I would definitely recommend her to any bride or anyone looking to look beautiful for a special occasion!
I was in a crunch when I was a month out and didn't have a makeup artist yet!!! I reached out to several in the Pittsburgh area to see if anyone would take my request, meet my expectations and budget. I was willing to spend more to get a look and experience that I loved but with Jay Lee I didn't have to sacrifice either!!!! She was the first to respond back when I inquired of several different artist. She genuinely wanted to make sure that my needs and expectations were met and answered ALL my questions honestly and quickly! As an African American who rarely wears any makeup, I was concerned that on my wedding day the makeup would be too heavy, wouldn't match and I just wouldn't look like myself. She did not take offence when I asked if she has worked with my skin type and gladly assured me that she could accomplish the look I was going for. I arranged a trial and LOVED EVERY BIT OF IT!! Her personality matched the beauty that she enhances with her clients (nobody wants an awkward vibe lol). There was a major event going on in the city on the day of my wedding and so I was having to make some changes with her as far as time and location. She was flexible beyond measure! On my wedding day she arrived EARLY and was ready to begin applying my makeup ON TIME!!! If I could personally prefer her to any bride I would totally do it without a doubt!!! Jae Lee made my day even more special...I was beyond pleased :-)
Jae did a great job with my makeup! She was very patient with me during the two trials before my wedding so that I got the look I had envisioned. Everything turned out great for my wedding in December 2015. She was on time, set up quickly and was very professional throughout. Would definitely recommend her to a friend!!
I highly recommend Jae Lee Paredes!!! Jennifer did my make-up for my wedding, and did a fantastic job. I have extremely sensitive skin and am very cautious about what I put on my face, she was very helpful with this. I actually use the soaps she makes (#northeastoilandsoap) every day, which has helped clear up my skin. Jennifer was very helpful and accommodating; my mother in-law had never had her makeup done before and Jennifer helped calm her nerves.
Jae Lee was extremely helpful and did a wonderful job on my make-up. I didn't have time to schedule a trial session with her, but she was able to do a fantastic job based on my color preferences and style. My pictures turned out amazing and I couldn't be happier with how I looked. Thanks, Jae!
AMAZING! I am not someone who wears makeup on a regular basis and if I do it is usually mascara and blush. Even though I am a simple girl I knew for my big day I wanted to have my makeup professionally done. After meeting Jen I knew she would be the perfect person to work with. After my trial I had changed my mind on what I wanted my eye makeup to look like. I was a little nervous to bring this up in fear of being an annoying bride but once I told Jen you could tell she is very understanding and her priority is making sure your makeup is exactly how you want it to be. As most brides know there is somewhat of a timeline on the day of your wedding and it is important to stay on track. Since there were so many girls getting their makeup done I was nervous we would get set back. Jen assured me everything would work out and she was true to her word. Jen and her assistant worked so well we were done in time and the best part no one felt rushed and everyone loved there makeup! When you look back on your wedding you might think oh I wish I had done this or that but I guarantee you will be happy you went with Jae Lee Paredes Makeup!
Jae did an amazing job on my make-up for my wedding day! She also did my mother and bridesmaids make-up which looked amazing too! Jae listened to everything I wanted and came up with a perfect, natural look that was perfect for me! My make-up stayed on for the entire day/night, I couldn't believe it! The bridal mink eyelashes were so awesome! I was a little hesitant at first but they are the perfect finishing touch! Jae coordinated with my hairdresser on her own and they both came to my house on time and with everything she possibly needed. She was so easy and fun to work with, I would highly recommend Jae for any wedding or special occasion!
HIGHLY recommend! Jennifer is incredibly talented, and I am so happy with how my makeup turned out for my wedding day! I do regularly wear makeup, but I have a pretty low-maintenance daily routine, so I didn't want to be so overly made up and unrecognizable. Jennifer gave me the perfect blend of enhanced while still looking natural. I am so happy with the end result! Also, it would be a disservice to Jennifer not to mention how unbelievably sweet, funny, and accommodating she is! She and her (also incredibly talented and wonderful) assistant Allie did makeup for myself, my mom, and 7 bridesmaids so quickly and flawlessly, and we had the BEST time with them. It also took so much stress out of the day that they came to us. I couldn't be happier with my decision to go with Jae Lee for my wedding! (Also, if you get the chance, check out her studio in Canonsburg: ADORABLE)
Jae did an amazing job with me, my bridesmaids, mom and other family members. Everyones make up turned out beautifully -- whether someone just wanted barely there make up or a more dramatic look. For me, Jae made the entire process so simple and I was totally comfortable with her around while we got ready. I wanted to look like myself, just more glammed up and she did just that. LOVED everything -- Thank you!!!
Jae is great! I hired her for my wedding and was very happy with the results. She is very accommodating and willing to work with you to ensure that you get the look that you want. I am extremely picky with my makeup, and Jae complied with the dozens of changes that I made, both at my trial session and afterward. Most importantly, I realized after I left my trial session that my airbrush foundation was the wrong color, but Jae ended up matching it perfectly on my wedding day. She even let me do certain portions of my makeup that I wasn't comfortable allowing someone else to do (brow pencil/gel, blush, and lipstick). Almost everything stayed in place the entire day--my only issue was that my false eyelash strips were both falling off by the end of the night, but luckily I don't think that anyone noticed because everything else remained pristine. I would definitely recommend Jae!
Jae Lee did an absolutely incredible job with my bridal make-up. I switched up the look last minute and went for a more dramatic make-up application, and she nailed it. Not only did she do an incredible job with me, but all my bridesmaids absolutely loved their make-up. Highly recommended.
Jae Lee did an amazing job on my engagement session and wedding day makeup! She made me look better than I ever have. I have received so many compliments on my wedding day makeup. All of my bridesmaids and my mother had their makeup done by Jae Lee as well, and they all looked stunning. Hiring Jae Lee was one of the best vendor decisions I made and I would recommend her to any bride.
This review is long overdue! Jae Lee is personable, professional, and extremely talented! At my initial consultation we chatted like had known each other for years. She was even able to do a pre-wedding consultation for my mom and sister who had some concerns about their sensitive skin. She was able to accommodate an additional bridesmaid with only a few weeks notice. I should also say my wedding was on the hottest day of July. It was well over 90 degrees with what felt like 100% humidity, and my makeup still looked fabulous 14 hours after it was applied. I would recommend Jae Lee to anyone! She books fast so don’t hesitate!
Jae Lee Parades Makeup was one of the best parts of my day! She arrived on time, did my makeup beautifully and it didn't budge all day. Originally, she was just supposed to my makeup and the MOB's makeup, but the bridesmaids ended up all asking her if she could help with their eyelashes, or if she could do a quick touch up or eye make-up look for them and she was able to accommodate everyone. She was a blast to work with, friendly and she fit right in with our group. I would definitely use her again! Thanks so much for everything!
Jennifer is simply amazing at what she does. I had a large bridal party of 7 bridesmaids, mother of the bride, mother of the groom and a family member. Jennifer and her team arrived on time, were organized and listened to each person, making adjustments as needed. They were never flustered. With respect to makeup, Jennifer nailed my 60s inspired look and, most importantly, made me look glam while still distinctly like myself. I received compliments all night (even during an ill advised 3:00am pizza run!) and my bridesmaids felt the same way. Thank you Jennifer for all that you do!!!
Jennifer did my makeup for my wedding this past june (june 6, 2015). I am so happy I went with her!!! I couldn't have been happier with how my make up turned out. I was very nervous about having my make up done because I can be particular about how it looks and am used to doing my own makeup. Jennifer made me feel so comfortable from the beginning. She allowed me to have an early makeup trial to try some looks out that I had been thinking about. She also answered any questions I emailed her extremely fast and was alway easy to get a hold of. Jennifer is very skilled and listens to her clients. My whole bridal party was extremely happy with her services. What I liked most was on my wedding day while she was doing my make up, Jennifer would show me each step and get my opinion. She changed what I wanted changed and had suggestions for me for what she thought would look best. Overall I couldn't have been happier that I went with Jennifer for my wedding!!
Jae was AMAZING!!!!!! I have never felt so beautiful i my life!!! She was patient as everyone came to the hotel at different times from getting our hair done. Jae made everyone feel comfortable & relaxed. The makeup was flawless and lasted ALL day (in the heat) & all night!!! I would recommend her to everyone!!! Thank you Jae for everything!!! #muddwedding72515
SO happy I went with Jae Lee. All of the ladies looked absolutely gorgeous - just like themselves, but enhanced just a bit! Jae lee stayed with us throughout the morning as she did 10 ladies. She is sweet, ncie fun and fun and fit in with our group well. She was very genuine too! As I was getting ready with the final touches with my dress on you can just see in her face that she truely cares about the women she works with. I asked that Jae Lee just complete my makeup and not have an assistant, I was a little worried about the timing of it all, but it worked out perfectly. I have absolutely no complaints!
Jae Lee is phenomenal! She was suggested to me by my planner, and I was immediately blown away by all of her beautiful brides. I loved how simple and gorgeous her style was, and I was in love after my trial. I appreciated how she really took the time to hear about my usual look and thoughts on what I wanted. I knew I was in great hands! I loved the airbrush style and I felt so amazing day of! She totally nailed the natural/dramatic look I wanted. She also did the make up of my 5 bridesmaids and 2 moms and everyone was thrilled. It was so amazing to see her work, everyone looked gorgeous. Jae Lee was so lovely and wonderful. Her combination of amazing talent and warm, calm personality was so perfect. She was so fun, it was so nice to step away from all the crazy energy of the day and just chat with her. I could not have asked for a more perfect person! Would highly recommend to any bride!
I cannot say enough good things about Jae and her team. I knew I had picked the right makeup artist at my trial session. I had booked Jae well before my trial hoping that things would work out. Holy cow, was I so glad I did. Jae and her team are very professional and courteous individuals. They listened to every question and concern I had and even made special note on the way I liked things (like my eyebrows done). The brushes and makeup kits were clean and I felt as through they genuinely cared for my skin as much as I did. I got the package with a makeup touch up kit, which I found to be EXTREMELY helpful the day of. I would recommend Jae and her team to anyone looking to get their makeup done for any special event and especially their wedding. I loved my makeup so much--- I'm hoping to have a reason to go back to her!
I was so excited when another bride chose a destination wedding so that Jen would be available for mine :) I wanted to look like me, only better and she nailed it! I didn't feel overly made up and everything stayed in place the entire day/night. I had a large bridal party and Jen was able to keep everything on track and cater to each person so that everyone loved how they looked. I really can't recommend Jen enough! She is professional, timely, creative, and talented- pretty much the ideal package for your big day!
Jae did my bridal makeup, as well as the makeup for my 6 bridesmaids, and my mom and mother in law. She did an amazing job. I had a hard time describing to her exactly what I had in mind, but she managed to pull it off perfectly. The rest of the girls all had different makeup styles (some wear no makeup, others wear it every day) but she listened to everyone's preferences and made everyone look gorgeous. It was about 90 degrees on my wedding day but my makeup didn't budge and it photographed flawlessly. Jae is great to work with and does a beautiful job!!
Stunning Make-Up!!Reviewed on 4/30/2015 Julie W
I was having trouble finding a make-up artist for my engagement session last summer and reached out to Jae Lee based upon her outstanding reviews. It was one of the best wedding choices I made! She was beyond accommodating when we rescheduled our engagement session 5 times due to weather. When I finally got my make-up done it was exactly what I wanted (glamorous but still natural) and photographed beautifully! I knew what amazing work she did and booked her for our wedding day make-up. Jae and her assistant did a phenomenal job listening to what each of the 8 individuals wanted (ages ranged from early 20s to 80s) while also creating a fun atmosphere. She also perfected my bridal look and was more than willing to make minor tweaks from my trial (mink lashes were a must!). My bridal party was so happy with how flawless their make-up was and they looked like old Hollywood starlets. I felt amazing and loved how glamorous I looked but still looked like myself. I received soo many compliments throughout the night and the make-up photographed stunningly! I am so glad I went with Jae Lee and cannot recommend her enough for brides or any special occasion!
