For over 15 years, I have taken a passionate and creative approach to my work. Working in the personal care industry has shaped me as an artist and has allowed me to meet many different people and experience many different products. I have been honored to work with a variety of lines such as Chanel as a Manager and Regional Makeup Artist, Borghese, H2O Plus and Aveda, concentrating on my career as an Esthetician. I provide airbrush foundation applications which is a must for brides, especially in the summer. I use a variety of products in my kit, everything from Maybelline Great Lash Mascara to Chanel lipstick. I find what works the best no matter the price or the name! If I haven't used it, I won't use it on my clients.

My major concentration for the last 10 years has been in the bridal industry where every encounter allows me to put my brides at ease and enhance the natural beauty that is already present. As an on location makeup artist, I will travel anywhere in the Greater Cincinnati area and will negotiate locations outside the area.

As a Makeup artist, I know preparing with makeup and hair on the wedding day can become hectic for all involved. I welcome the opportunity to work with each and every bride to make her look and feel unique, A day all her own! The biggest comment I get from brides/bridesmaids/mothers is that they are so glad to have had my services. It was more calming and fun!!! Allow yourself that special time to be with your friends and family and enjoy each other without having to feel rushed by going elsewhere. Read less

There aren't enough positive adjectives to describe Jean and her level of talent. After two previous makeup artists fell through, I was referred to her and boy am I glad things worked out the way that they did. I almost crashed my car after my initial trial because I loved my makeup so much that I kept checking myself out in the mirror...oops! She also did the makeup for my boudoir shoot and was able to tailor my look for the occasion. On my wedding day, her and her assistant Summer were on time, patient, personable, and knowledgable. They made my bridal party look like they were headed for the red carpet, and tailored each makeover to match each girl's age, personality and personal preferences. I had two younger bridesmaids in my wedding and they were able to give them a full face of makeup without making them look cheap or too mature. Additionally, a few days before my wedding my grandmother slipped on ice and suffered severe bruising and a gash in the middle of her forehead. I sent Jean a photo, and she was able to assess the "damage" and came prepared to help my grandmother conceal her injuries. In the end, my grandmother was confident and able to enjoy her day. I would highly recommend Jean to any bride looking for a stress-free, reasonably priced wedding day makeover - be prepared for compliments galore from your guests!

Jean did a beautiful job on the make up for my daughter's wedding. She was willing to come to the house on a Sunday (day of the wedding) at 8:30 a.m. and stayed until 2:30 p.m. doing everyone's make up. She was even willing to work around the girls going to get their hair done at a salon a couple at a time.

The bride had a trial run about a week before the wedding, and was able to give feedback on the look.

Jean provided airbrush foundation for everyone as well as false eyelashes (it definitely makes a difference in the pictures.) She was very responsive to the desires of each person and how they wanted to look. She gave them exactly what they wanted.

We all looked beautiful and the make up stayed on the entire evening. She had the bride, 5 bridesmaids, mother of the bride, grandmother of the bride, and the mother of the groom.

I would highly recommend her services. She was a joy to work with.

I was very very happy with the way my make-up looked the day of my wedding, all thanks to Jean! She used high quality make-up and was open to my personal style so that I still looked like me on the big day but with a little extra glamour. I would highly recommend Jean to those brides out there that are looking for a fabulous professional make-up artist for your wedding day. A side bonus is that she's super fun to talk to while you are getting your make-up done!

I live in Portland, Oregon but my wedding was in Cincinnati. Needless to say, it was a little overwhelming to begin planning a wedding 2,500 miles away. Also, it was a surprise wedding that we ended up planning in a 6-month time frame. I found Jean through Google searches and read great review after great review. I immediately contacted her to set up a trial appointment when I was home over Christmas. She was responsive and flexible with scheduling. Upon meeting her, I was pleased to find that she was incredibly confident in her work. I absolutely loved my make-up after the trial and the day of the wedding. Jean certainly pinpointed the perfect look for me, but one of the best things about her was how calming she was on the day of my wedding. She stayed through the beginning of the evening to ensure that I looked flawless as I took my first step down the aisle. She will not disappoint if you choose her for your make-up!

Jean did an amazing job with my make-up for my wedding. I was an out of town bride, and would only be in town for one weekend before my wedding, and was lucky that Jean was free and available to help. She created the perfect look for me. I had two wedding ceremonies - a Sikh (Indian ceremony) and a catholic ceremony, as well as a reception on the same day, and needed a look that would go with both ceremonies and last the entire day. Jean created the perfect look that complemented both the elaborate Indian outfit and more subdued catholic one. My make-up lasted all day, and I (as someone who normally doesn't wear make-up) felt it looked incredibly natural.

Additionally, she (with the help of Summer) was able to do the makeup for each of my 7 bridesmaids and my mom, coming to my home at 6:00 am with everyone ready to go by a 10:00 am ceremony. One of my bridesmaids was planning to do her own make-up, because she had such horrible experiences in the past, but decided to try at the last minute and was so impressed with the results.

Jean Folchi did my makeup as well as my bridesmaids and my mother's for my wedding. I couldn't have been more happy with what she did! I don't typically wear a lot of makeup and was originally nervous to find someone to do my makeup, fearing that they wouldn't make me 'look like me.' From my first meeting with Jean, all my worries disappeared. She made me feel so at ease, and I absolutely LOVED what she did! I would recommend her services to anyone wanting to feel absolutely beautiful on their special day!

In a word: LOVE her. Ok that's two, but you know what I mean. I can't rave enough about Jean. She was SUPER flexible with my crazy scheduling (I travel for work and had to reschedule almost all of my appointments due to having to go out of town). She was prompt, professional, calm, but so fun to work with! My girls and I all used her for my wedding and couldn't have been happier. To me she went above and beyond; I didn't just get a trial make up run and wedding day make up. She spoke with me about my complexion, skin type, etc. to help so I look my best (all the time and especially my wedding day). I would HIGHLY recommend her.

I was a matron of honor in my best friend's wedding recently. We were lucky enough to have Jean do all of our makeup. Being the mom of a newborn, I really needed to feel beautiful and she made it happen. I felt gorgeous! She gave me a few tips about my skin and knew exactly what I wanted even though I couldn't really explain it that well. I will definitely be scheduling a make up lesson with Jean very soon! I would highly recommend her to any bride or anyone who just wants to feel good about themselves!

Jean was everything I was looking for in a makeup artist for my wedding day! As an out-of-town bride getting married in Dayton, I needed someone who could communicate with me well and be flexible to my schedule for the trial run. She was both of these things! Jean made suggestions for skincare prior to my big day based on my specific skin type which was also great. The trial run was smooth and easy. She made sure to listen to the look I wanted and tailored my makeup perfectly! And on the actual day, everything was fabulous! She provided makeup for my mom and several of my bridesmaids. Everyone looked absolutely beautiful. Not to mention, she is fun to be around and has a personality that puts you at ease and makes you feel very comfortable and confident. I would highly recommend her to any bride in the area!
