Meet The Team 


Jenny has been using her creative eye for color to enhance client faces since 2012. She joined the Salt Spell team after moving to the Bay Area from So Cal. Jenny is one of the most genuine makeup artists we know, and her talent is only enhanced by the way she cares for others. When she's not pampering faces, you can find her strumming on guitar strings and singing dreamy vocal melodies that she writes herself. 

Lauren has worn many hats in beauty industry, as both a makeup artist, a beauty editor, and a social media coordinator for a global beauty brand. She represents the East Coast extension of Salt Spell Beauty, serving clients in NYC and Philadelphia, as well as consulting on creative direction for the brand. When she's not in the glam zone, you can find her picnicking with her gal pals over a bottle of rose´.
