About Me

Jenna UngarMy name is Jenna Ungar, I am a makeup artist from Johannesburg, South Africa.

Makeup was always one thing I wanted to study, I knew it was something I wanted to do as my career. Having worked in different fields in the industry, I can confidently say that I love working with brides and  their bridal parties. Each bride is so unique and I get pleasure out of being an important part in their big day.

I have also worked with top South African makeup artists in the industry and have been trained and taught by them which was the best way to learn about the industry.

The makeup looks I design are different and unique for each person, but the end result  is a natural matte or dewy finish which looks beautiful when photographed. I believe in enhancing ones natural beauty and I do this by applying up to date techniques that I have been taught in a variety of different makeup courses as well as using high end quality products, from all over the world.
