Service Spotlight: Let's Go Shopping!

One frequent comment my clients walk away saying is, “If only I could do this myself!” 

GLAM-BY-JEET-EDUCATION

I will be the first to say that the beauty world is an overwhelming world. There are hundreds upon hundreds of beauty brands out there — where to begin?! So many clients conclude that in order to get the look I’ve created for them, they’d have to go and spend hundreds on high-end beauty. But that just isn’t the case, girls, and I’m more than happy to take you on an educational shopping trip with a Shop & Learn session.

If you are ready to move beyond the security of mascara and lipgloss, and perhaps dare to contour, sign up for a Shop & Learn session. We’ll run to Target, Sephora, or Ulta and discover all of the makeup products you need to achieve your glam day-to-day look. From color matching to selecting the most flattering eyeshadows for your complexion, we’ll cover everything! I  also know the most high-end products don’t mean anything unless you learn how to use them. After our shopping spree, we’ll go back to your house (or mine if you’re looking to get out of the house!) and I’ll teach you exactly how to use everything you’ve purchased. All Shop & Learn sessions are two to three hours of fun! 

This service is available to anyone in the Stafford and Fredericksburg areas! If you’re in high school and wanting to learn and try different looks, about to graduate college and ready for a more elevated and professional look, or just looking for a fun experience, I’d love for you to join me with a Shop & Learn!

Glam By Jeet: Backstage

Beauty is my second favorite thing about being a beauty artist. My favorite part? Connecting with my clientele.

I bring a bit more life experience to the palette when it comes to most beauty artists in the industry. I am a married woman. I have worked the corporate world. I have a baby girl. On the other hand, I probably am just as familiar with every trending beauty YouTube personality as your 13 year old daughter! My prom clients and I always have fun comparing our favorite Jaclyn Hill videos and trying out tips from Teni Panosian. I am also not afraid to admit that when it comes to the entire spectrum of makeup looks from high glam to naturally effortless, the Kardashians have that stuff down. From sweet sixteen to the grandmother of the groom, I’m here to make you feel as good as you’ll look!

From makeup to hair, my specialty is catering to the exact look you are going for. Before our session, I always ask clients to send me a picture of their desired look. This gives me the time to understand the best way to translate that look onto their particular features, to replicate a look with colors that compliment their natural coloring. The end result always works best when you remember we’re emphasizing your own existing beauty, not copying someone else’s. One of my clients’ put it well, “Jeet can customize your look to be just what you want.” Customizing to your beauty, that’s what I love doing!

As a mobile makeup artist, I am able to come straight to you in the comfort of your own home. This means no rushing across town to make it to your appointment on time and no hiring babysitters. Before we start, I like to sit down with my clients and once more go over what skin finish they want, talk about glossy versus matte lips, and hairstyles. In order for you to be relaxed, I start with your hair and move on to makeup. I ask questions throughout the entire process and then handover a mirror for the big reveal! In an hour and half, all that’s left is to put on your dress!

The WHY Behind The Brand

“The best way of learning about anything is by doing.”

I was always the girly girl in my circle of friends and family. Naturally, I was always learning about the latest makeup trends and how to achieve them. If you are passionate about something, you consequently find hours have past as you have finished reading through every beauty magazine and practicing on yourself! That was me growing up! Learning by doing.

People knew that style, hair and beauty were three things that were integral to who I was! My mother is Indian and is an artist, so you can only imagine the tapestry of dramatic makeup and colors I was exposed to. While other girls dressed up with concealer and mascara for special family events, I was perfecting a heavier dramatic look. By the age of 12, I had mastered winged liner. By the time I was in college and friends were attending galas and special events, the rumors spread to go get glam with Jeet. 

I graduated from University of Maryland with a degree in criminology and did work as a background investigator for a few years after graduating. But after having our baby girl, I found myself exhausted…trying to keep up with a full-time job I wasn’t in love with and raising a child with my husband. I wasn’t there for her in the completely present way I wanted to be, I needed flexibility; I needed to open up my own beauty practice. 

You can imagine the pushback I received! “That’s a great transition job, Jeet. But you can’t make a living doing this!” That only fueled me even more! I was determined to show that if you allow what you love to drive your ambition, nothing can stop you. I had a lifelong passion for beauty doubled with a momma’s love for her baby, you bet this was GOING to happen! In 2014, I took the leap and immediately started learning from a few artists in the area. I combined my self-taught talent with the mentorship of women who were where I wanted to be. What’s that quote? “Surround yourself with what you want to become”? 

I have always admired and learned from Tamanna Roashan (@dressyourface). To me, she’s the OG of the Instagram makeup world. Creating a million dollar industry by the time she was 30? Attending her seminar was a must. I think I am able to work will all types of clients because of her tutelage. I model her work in mine and tailor it to each of my clients. Every issue from skin tones, color matching, Arabian makeup…I’ve mastered it because I’ve done it. 

We’re all women. We all understand times of insecurity. From young girls just entering the world of makeup, college women wanting to learn a more professional look, expecting mommas who feel as though they’ve lost their beauty mid-pregnancy to single mothers and working mothers. Heck, even during times you just feel bloated and need to learn about the magic of a good contour.

I think I loved beauty as a child because there is a confidence that comes from feeling beautiful. I always felt confident when my makeup was done. I learned that by doing it.

I love when women look in the mirror and feel confident, and that’s how every woman leaves after she has worked with me. 

I’ve learned that, by delivering it.
