My passion for makeup and hair started when I was a young girl. My skin wasn’t always the greatest. I had a tween and then teenage skin much like most of us had. During this time, I found inspiration in my imperfections and developed a love of makeup and aesthetics. I loved the fact I can show my creative side, I enjoyed the challenges, and most importantly, how it made me feel.
I was only in middle school when this transformation happened, and I can’t say that my family approved. But I still found ways to play with makeup, by curling my lashes, wearing clear lip gloss and colored mascara. It wasn’t much of a makeover, but I liked the fact I could be creative and feel beautiful.
Once I entered university, I was free to explore the world of cosmetics. It was during this time that my passion for makeup suddenly became more than a creative outlet. I wanted this to be my career.
I started with doing my friends’ makeup and hair. The joy and satisfaction I received were more than just seeing the transformation, I know it made them feel beautiful and confident inside and out.
Once I completed university, my path was set. I had my mind set on being a makeup artist and through hard work, a lot of dedication and the willingness to experiment and learn new exciting techniques and products, I made it come true.
I worked as a freelance makeup artist for Nars Cosmetics, where I received more hands-on training. Through them, I was able to learn all about different skin types, dealing with various skin tones, textures, and different features and how they responded. My outgoing and social nature always wants others to feel as I do, confident, beautiful and completely at ease in a world of amazing faces who want to look their best. I was able to create a successful career working with people who represented our multicultural Canadian population. I consider myself fortunate enough to bring those faces to life and make them feel fantastic.
After a few years of working for Nars, my best friend and I started our own makeup and hair studio, where we provided mobile service with a focus on East Indian weddings. I was in awe of all the glitz and glam that come with the wedding outfits and accessories. I loved everything about our job.
Even though my best friend and I were passionate about the wedding industry after she welcomed her twin girls, she became occupied, and I had a lot on my plate at the same time. I got into bodybuilding, which was very time consuming, and I knew I couldn’t give 100% to both bodybuilding and makeup. We gradually stopped advertising our business, only did makeup and hair occasionally for friends and returning clients.
Fast forward to 4 years ago, I fell in love with a wonderful man who happens to be Indian and thus my Punjabi last name. We had 2 beautiful weddings, a Chinese wedding, and a traditional Sikh wedding. I did my makeup for all the events myself. I received endless compliments on the different looks. I realized how much I missed it. I missed the wonderful colors, the big hairs, the amazing people I get to work with, and heck, I even missed the 3am calls! So now I’m back! I’m back full force and ready to give my 100%
I can’t wait to meet you all and working with you to bring our visions

I cannot say enough good things about Jingjing. She gave me 3 totally different but complementary looks and was so meticulous both with my hair and make-up, and her attention to safety and hygiene during the bookings. She was also so much fun to hang out with for 3 days (and totally helped settle my nerves with the easy conversation). As a makeup junkie myself, I had some pretty specific likes and dislikes and did not want to look overly contoured or caked. Jingjing was able to take that feedback while still pushing me to embrace the full bridal glam. She is creative, talented, and I didn’t want our bookings to end. You can totally tell when someone has a passion for what they do and it shows with Jingjing’s work and her attitude. I booked her so last min that we didn’t have time for a trial but Jingjing sent me lots of pics/ideas and made sure we had an ongoing phone and text dialogue about what I wanted each day leading up to the bookings. That in itself gave me a lot of reassurance that Jingjing’s priority was making sure I was happy with the final look more than anything else. I had such a hard time picking a HMUA because the market is so saturated so I find it hard to find someone who has the skill and dedication to warrant the prices that are being charged. I was so pleasantly surprised with this vendor. Her work and her work ethic are second to none. I would highly recommend booking with Jingjing if you’re looking for a chill, hardworking, and creative artist.
