Celebrity Make up Artist Jen Farhood has created custom make up looks for celebrities on the red carpet and provided expert make up tips to magazines like Cosmo, Redbook, and Glamour to name a few. She has worked with Grammy Award winning Musicians, Oscar Award-winning actors, as well as music videos, commercials, album covers, and numerous major network TV shows. Jen was also the Talent Liaison and Make-up Artist for ‘The Tom Green Show’ for 5 years in Canada before MTV discovered the show and it became a cult phenomenon. Her clients include grooming and makeup services for iconic recording artists such as Rob Halford, The Police, Jon Bon Jovi and Olivia Newton-John. Trade magazine clients include Revolver, Guitar World, and Sound & Vision. Aside from doing traditional Make-up & Hairstyling, Jen is Certified and specializes in ‘AIRBRUSH MAKE-UP’. She was featured as a guest on ABC TV’s ‘The View’ for her skilled technique and demonstrated examples of beauty make-up, suntans, and body paint. Airbrush Make-up is extremely efficient and natural looking and leaves skin looking flawless. Celebrities insist on it because it’s the most sanitary form of make-up application (you’re not re-using product). It’s like live action photo re-touching and is the only make-up that can be used when filming in HD since it doesn’t translate to camera. It lasts for 18 hours and saves clients time and money!
