Jasmina (Jena’s main assistant)
Jasmina’s passion for makeup started at a very young age, and when she turned 14 her mother realized her passion for it and bought Jasmina an inspiring book, “Making Faces”, written by popular makeup artist Kevyn Aucoin. She read the book over and over learning techniques and tricks related to makeup application. Before long Jasmina, amongst others, realized that she had a natural talent for it. After receiving numerous requests over the years to provide her services, Jasmina realized makeup artistry was something she wanted to do professionally. Jasmina puts her clients instantly at ease by making them feel comfortable and most importantly, looking and feeling their absolute best.
Jena and Jasmina both shared mutual friends and when these friends saw that the ABJ team was looking for an additional makeup artist, Jasmina came highly recommended! Once seeing Jasmina’s raw talent and professionalism, Jena knew she wanted her to join the team. Jasmina will assist Jena at on location weddings as well as take on her own clientele.
