“Thank you, thank you, thank you! You are a makeup genius! Thank you so much for making me feel so comfortable with the makeup for my wedding. You made me feel so relaxed & I totally trusted you. You were a pleasure to work with. Thank you for helping my dream wedding become a reality.”

Shannon – Collegeville, PA


“Jill was not only able to work magic with her makeup artistry skills, but she was also able to put everyone at ease. My mother was very apprehensive about getting her makeup done, but after Jill finished her makeup my mother was stunned at how she looked. She loved it and everyone said she looked 10 year younger. We had such a lovely time with the whole experience. Jill has a way of conversing with people to the point that you feel like you have known her for years and you can tell that she loves what she does. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a makeup artist for their special occasion.”



“You don’t need to look any further than Face the Occasion. They are the best without question. My makeup artist, Kelly Quinlan, was friendly, professional and answered all of my questions. I had no stress about how I was going to look on my wedding day. Our ceremony was outside and our reception inside. The makeup was flawless with the transition from outside to inside..and the makeup in the pictures turned out amazing. I am so happy with how I looked on my wedding day.”



“Jill made me feel so beautiful on my wedding day! I felt like she hit the mark. I felt like an enhanced version of myself. She has a way to bring out your best features. She makes you feel special and pretty while keeping within your comfort level. She is sure to have you feel like you are a part of the process, not just another face she is making up. She asks all the right questions to be sure you get the look you are envisioning and hoping for.”



“Kelly and Jill from Face the Occasion were wonderful. They came to the hotel and did myself, my mother, my matron of honor and my 6 bridesmaids. Everyone looked wonderful – not artificial at all. The make-up stayed on so well all day as well. In addition to being on time, and anticipating the time needed exactly, they were very sweet. I would definitely recommend them.”



“I have hired Jill numerous times. She did my wedding and has done a red carpet event in NYC that we attended and also did make up for a Gala Ball in Philadelphia. Jill is efficient, patient and warm.  She is well versed with product knowledge and has mastered the key element of makeup longevity.  My makeup always feels light weight on my skin – it does not feel like I have anything on – yet it stays on through tearful times and 95 degree temperatures. The makeup really looks fresh for over 12 hours with no touch up needed outside of freshening up the lips. I have had Jill come over for personal lessons in my home so that I can learn how she does my makeup so well. I have to admit, it’s always a treat to sit down and have someone else do the makeup. I am so glad to have found Jill with Face the Occasion.”



“Booking Kelly with Face the Occasion was one of the best decisions I made during the wedding planning process. Kelly is a kind person and a true professional. She consistently responded to my questions in a timely and thorough manner, and was extremely flexible when scheduling my trial appointment.

“Most importantly, Kelly is a skilled make-up artist who works with you to achieve the perfect wedding look. Both during the trial and on my wedding day, Kelly talked me through the session checking-in periodically to make sure she was on the right track. I loved the quality and endless variety of make-up to choose from and the fact that the make-up stayed on so well throughout the day. My mother, bridesmaids and I can all attest that Kelly has a talent for bringing out your best features without making you look overdone. We all looked like the best possible versions of ourselves! I would recommend Kelly’s services to anyone.”



“I highly recommend Face the Occasion. Jill did the make up for my wedding along with my mother, grand mother, and bridesmaid. I don’t usually wear makeup and was extremely pleased with the job she did and my make up was still perfect by the time I got to bed!



“Face the Occasion did a great job. Kelly, the artist that worked with me and my bridal party was AMAZING! I don’t typically wear much more than eyeliner and mascara, so having my makeup done made me nervous. She listened to everything I had to say, made great suggestions and was totally flexible to my last minute wedding-day, nerve-filled changes. My makeup looked incredible, as did my bridal party and mother. I HIGHLY recommend Face the Occassion!”



“Kelly at Face the Occasion provided makeup services for my October wedding. She came to our house and did makeup for me, my mom and MIL, and my five bridesmaids. I swear, it seemed like she worked on me for 15 minutes and suddenly I was the most beautiful I’ve ever been. She completely understood how to bring out my natural beauty and play up my eyes, as requested. And the makeup lasted the whole day, through pictures, the heat of the outdoor ceremony (84 degrees in October!), and my sweaty, sweaty dancing. I haven’t gotten most of my pictures back yet, but from the few I’ve seen, my makeup photographed really well too. Kelly is also a doll to work with; very friendly and easygoing. As I said above, Kelly also provided makeup for my bridesmaids and the mothers. While I had a trial run beforehand, Kelly had to do makeup on the spot for the rest of them, and she knew just what to do with all their different skin tones and requests. They all looked so wonderful; I was in awe of how amazing the bridal party looked and so happy to see them so beautiful. Kelly is truly a genius.”



“Kelly from Face the Occasion was awesome! I had her today for a trial for my wedding day makeup. Her timeliness, professionalism and services was amazing! Every time I had to contact her through email prior to today, she always responded back within 24 hours (or less!). She was so easy to talk to, did great work, and has given me great confidence for how things will go on my wedding day with my makeup. I HIGHLY recommend Face the Occasion to any bride who is looking for makeup for their wedding. To save you the time and research, just go with Face the Occassion… you’ll be 100% satisfied!”



“Thank you so much for making myself, my mom and my sister beautiful for my wedding day. You were so sweet during the trial and even more personable on my wedding day. We received a plethora of compliments on our makeup and we have you to thank for that. I felt so wonderful after you were finished with my make up because you completed the look I was going for with the lashes and the lip gloss.”



“Thank you so much for your help and your wonderful work and patience. Everyone looked beautiful!

Bridget – Medford, NJ

Stacey – Douglassville, PA


“Thank you so much for coming out to my hotel room on my wedding day to do my makeup, as well as my mom’s, friend’s, and sister’s. You did such a great job, we all received many compliments that day on our makeup. I did not feel overdone, yet my makeup turned out perfect in every picture.. And I have never seen my mom look so beautiful- she looked about ten years younger. It was also really great that we did not have to leave that morning and go out in the rain, we are so grateful to have found you! From the consultation to the wedding day, I really enjoyed working with you- I plan on referring you to all my friends for their weddings!”

Megan – Yardley, PA
