See what I did there? I rhymed. Didn't mean to but I thought "All About Glam by Jeet" was a little breathy, haha...ANYWAYS. For those that have been following me for awhile, you know I've since moved from Tennessee to Virginia. For all of you that are new, WELCOME! I'm so glad you are here reading this! You're in for a special treat. Not only was I lucky enough to find a fabulous freelance make-up artist in TN, but I believe I now have one of the best make-up artists in ALL of Virginia. I literally cannot say enough about this beautiful girl that makes my clients look and feel amazing. Her energy is contagious and her skill and talent will blow anyone away. If you're lucky enough to treat yourself to a boudoir experience, just know that Jeet will have you feeling some kind of way. We're here to show you that it's ok to think you're beautiful. It's ok to look at yourself and think, "DAMN, I look good". It's not about being cocky...it's about having confidence and that's what Jeet and I will help you achieve. Finding someone like her is literally like finding a needle in a haystack. I have blogged a little about me so you know what to expect when you come to your session, but let's find out about the artist behind these flawless hair and make-up skills! Meet Jeet...
Tell us a little about you! Where are you originally from? How long have you lived in Stafford, Virginia?
I am from Silver Spring, MD originally but have been in VA since 2009 and love calling it home! I've been in Stafford since 2013 and it's been my favorite place to live so far. The community is amazing and tight knit and I've made the most amount of friends I've ever made in my adult life here. Woodbridge is a hop skip and jump away and so is Central Park so it's always fun no matter what.
How long have you been married?
Since September 11, 2009.
Do you have kids? If so, how many and how old?
I have one 6 year old daughter!
How long have you been doing make-up and hair?
I've been doing makeup and hair since 2005 when I met some fabulous girls at college that trusted me with their gala and ball looks. Later I helped them get ready for their engagements and Halloween parties!
What attracted you to start your business?
My daughter was going to go to school full time and I didn't have any intentions of going back to a corporate job because I hated it. I wanted to pursue what I love and make my own schedule to be around for my daughter when she needs me since her father is always away or working super long hours. This has been the best decision I've ever made!
If you had to pick ONE thing about your job that is your favorite, what would it be?
I love when everyone looks in the mirror at the end! The gratification is like no other. I have heard amazing things like "I look better than I did on my wedding day!" Or "I can't believe this is me!" It's the best.
Your top 3 favorite make-up brands...
Mac, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Morphe
If there was a fire, what 5 make-up tools would you grab?
I would grab my beauty blender, eyelash curler, blush brush, tweezers, and a small brush!
What do you feel is the most important facial feature to accentuate?
Contouring, don't talk to me unless you have bronzer on
(by the way she picked this answer from a list of choices I wrote out, so she might really talk to you if you don't have bronzer on, I think.) haha ;)
Flat iron or Curling wand?
Curling Iron for the win!
What is the best tip for creating curl in fine hair?
Never forget to use either rollers or curl and set your hair. It needs to cool in a coiled shape otherwise it'll always fall immediately. Always style with sea salt spray and dry shampoo for texture and hold. A flexible hold hair spray is a must too!
What is your favorite hair styling product?
Sea salt spray! It smells like a vacation and helps give texture to do anything with hair!
Favorite Starbucks drink...
Skim no foam chai tea latte!
What is your favorite candy/sweets?
What is the one thing you're most looking forward to this year with Karla Mason Boudoir?
I love her energy and style. It's super sexy and super edgy. I love the way she works with light and how comfortable clients immediately feel.
What is the best way for people to contact you?
301-518-8082 call or text me any time! I'm also super active on my Facebook - www.facebook.com/Glambyjeet
Last but not least, what is something that many people don't know about you?
I'm a vegetarian but can make some of the best chicken you've ever had in your life because I learned how to make meat off food network 😂
