About the Artist

Jennifer Thomson Trotter - Pro Makeup Artist and Bridal Beauty Expert


Hi there! I'm a pro makeup artist based in Dallas/Fort Worth, TX, as well as a beauty expert and writer.  I started my career by doing mostly TV and film, but once I discovered bridal makeup artistry?  I was hooked! I've beautified nearly 1000 brides over my 20+ years in the business, and I'm truly passionate about bridal beauty. 

Besides weddings and production work, I also specialize in customized group and private lessons, where clients can learn everything they've ever wanted to know about makeup.

Makeup 101, Anti-Aging Tips, and Smoky Eye Demystified are just a few popular topics that I cover. This is where my background in corporate training comes in REALLY handy!  In a relaxed and comfortable setting, I'll answer your questions and teach you tips and tricks you can use to create your own every day flawless face, complete with custom take home handouts.






Another thing I'm known for is amazing before/after transformations that demonstrate
the magical powers of makeup, posted several times a week on social media. You'll see brides, boudoir images, models, professional headshots...every type of makeup in every age group in a variety of styles. (Be sure to click over to the portfolio page to see more of examples of my work!)  These transformations are meant to show that ANY woman can be beautiful! Second, my signature style....flawless, long-lasting, perfectly enhanced...glamorous, yet natural. You'll look like the very best version of YOU!  All this
beauty is delivered with warmth, professionalism, and a totally client driven focus. I've been a makeup artist for a long time, but I'm still just as excited to work with YOU as the first bride I booked many years ago.  I absolutely love what I do, and it shows! 


Currently, my work can be seen on local and national advertising campaigns for companies including the Girl Scouts of America, Smart Barre, Tostitos, The LPGA, Nosh Detox and the Omni Hotel.....and of course on the faces of lovely brides in the Dallas/Fort Worth area every year!  
You'll also find my work (as well as beauty and wedding tips!) featured on popular blogs such as SHEfinds, Wedding Chicks, Style Me Pretty and the Bridal Guide, as well as in publications including 360West Weddings, D Magazine Weddings, Brides of North Texas, Borrowed and Bleu, and BRIDES Magazine (click here for examples and links!)



I'm honored to have been named a finalist in "Best Wedding Makeup in DFW" by the WFAA Dallas AList, a "Couples Choice" Winner on Wedding Wire, voted one of the top 5 Makeup artists by American Association of Certified Wedding Planners for the second year in a row, and featured as a speaker at the National Wedding MBA Conference in Las Vegas... and to be the number one referral choice of countless wedding vendors all over town.
