Visited Asheville to explore my new Trans personality and Jennifer brought my feminine side out with a wonderful makeup visit. She was very personable and friendly, She took her time and made sure I was comfortable with what she was doing as we walked through each step.

I stepped out that night as a beautiful woman and felt very confident being in public with her makeup help.

I would highly recommend Jennifer for any trans woman who is looking to find themselves or step out in public for the first time. Even if it's just a one evening make up session.

I had never been out in public before. I was always hiding in my house. I finally got the courage to call Jennifer after months of emails. It changed my life....she has a huge support network from local shoppes and vendors there in Asheville. Plus her talent and patience with me while she taught me make up was appreciated....I now have the means to do my own make up and go out and meet people. I am taking my wife back this spring to do couples make up lesson...Jennifer and Holly are great!!
