About Me

Jeannie Giannone Wedding Chicago Makeup ArtistEver since she was a little girl, Jeannie has been obsessed with all things glamour and beauty. One of her earliest memories is sitting by her grandmother’s vanity and watching her apply a full face of makeup.  So it comes as no surprise that the love of makeup was passed down through the family.

Knowing she needed the all of the tools to be successful, Jeannie enrolled at Makeup First® School and became a certified makeup artist. She freelances in and around the city of Chicago, mostly working with brides and private clients. Jeannie has also worked with MAC Cosmetics, Hourglass Cosmetics, Windy City Live and Vavoom Pinups (among others). Her work has been featured in Modern Luxury Brides and The Knot. 

In 2015, Jeannie traveled to the Cannes Film Festival to compete in the L’Oreal Paris Brush Contest as the USA winner. She competed in the finals as one of the Top 3 in the world.

“Makeup should be fun and it should enhance the natural beauty that everyone has. When someone feels great about how they look, that’s when their true beauty shines.” – Jeannie
