My name is Jennifer Cruz and I am a Makeup Artist and Hair Stylist based in South Florida.
I first fell in love with makeup when I was in high school participating in performing arts. As much as being on stage was fun, my true passion developed backstage in the makeup room helping my friends get ready before a show. After college and receiving my Estheticians license, I spent 5 years as an artist for MAC Cosmetics before going on to work for myself full time. Through the years I’ve been fortunate enough to work with some incredible clients such as Hannah Davis, Elle MacPherson, Nicola Peltz and Diane Von Furstenberg as well as being on the beauty team for Harpers Bazaar and Ocean Drive Magazine.

I developed Jennifer Cruz Beauty Group to be a one stop shop for brides and clients that want to look and feel beautiful! Hand picking artists from all over
South Florida, I am confident that my team will make every client feel gorgeous, regardless of their budget.
When I am not making my clients look beautiful on the outside, I am showing them how to feel just as beautiful on the inside. I am a certified Yoga Teacher and offer private individual as well as group classes. You can view my public teaching schedule at www.JenniferCruzYoga.com
The beauty bug started when I was 9 styling my Farrah Faucet doll head…I was hooked!!! I lived in the states and in Taiwan during the 80s
and picked up different fashion styles. I graduated from the School of Business at the University of Maryland to keep my very Chinese family happy,
but of course became a licensed Cosmetologist instead!!
I moved out to LA with my family, to pursue that passion for creating beautiful imagery that enhances the storytelling process. With over 20 years makeup and hair experience, my span of work includes commercials, music videos, weddings, television, feature films, and various print campaigns.
I currently live in Miami and have teamed up with JCBG to cater specifically to bridal beauty. I am also represented by Creative Management at MC2
