I was married at The Kaaterskill in Catskill, NY and was determined to have someone come to the venue so we didn't have to shuttle everyone around.

Jillian was incredibly responsive to all of my questions and was very accommodating for our trial as I had to reschedule a few times. During the trial Jillian patiently let me explain what I was looking for and was so easy to talk to throughout the application. You can really tell that she loves what she does and wants to do best by the bride. I let her know I wanted to keep my makeup a little more matte for the wedding, but she explained that the shine would really help make the photos better. The day of, Jillian was prompt and efficient. She was super thorough will all of my girls, really taking the time to make sure everyone was perfect. We all had our lashes applied and they looked amazing. I was teary-eyed looking at all of my ladies since they each looked so incredible! She also applied makeup to my mom and mother in law-my mom was initially skeptical, but LOVED the results! It was so nice to see my mom really beaming in all of our photos! I can't say enough good things. Any bride would be in great hands with Jillian!!! *The price was actually a package price for all of my ladies (10 total including myself-WORTH IT!!!)
