Makeup By Jenifer Haupt
Tell us a little about your company? I am a Certified Makeup Artist and specialize in bridal make-up and hair.
When did you establish your business? I have a new studio set up in Midtown. But, not new to the industry of course.
What sets you apart from your competition? I LOVE what I do. You can see the passion I have.
Where do you find inspiration? Make-up comes natural to me. I am constantly looking at the current trends in magazines and online and take classes when I can.
When you opened shop, what was your promise to your customers? A flawless look you will love.
Do you have any hidden talents? I am a mini Martha Stewart. I can do anything crafty including baking.
What trend do you see coming for weddings in the next year? Right now for 2011 the romantic feel is big, but I think that brides are starting to want some color. A splash of color for the bride will start to become a trend. A colorful flower in the hair, color on the dress, or a splash of color for the makeup.
Do you regularly blog? If so, what’s your blog site? Yes! I just started and I have so much to say about wedding make-up. Click here for Jen’s Blog.
Do you Facebook? YES…. I am a Facebook fool. Click here for Jen’s Facebook page.

What are you most grateful for in life? My Husband!!! He treats me like a princess.
If you were to plan your own wedding, or re-do your wedding, what elements would be most important to you? I want a re-do with my flowers, cake and DJ.
What advice would you can give to brides and grooms getting married today? Take a moment to enjoy at your wedding because the day goes by SO FAST… pictures are worth a thousand words and memories.
