JFBL introduces Kelly Sharkey

Please meet Kelly Sharkey

Kelly has been working with JFBL since it's inception back in 2006.  I'm so lucky to have Kelly in my life both professionally and personally (our husbands grew up together)!  Not only is she the most kind-hearted person you'll ever meet, she is a natural at all things beauty!  Much to my luck, Kelly is as talented with designing original hair styles as she is doing beautiful makeup!  

In 2010, Kelly will  focus on her makeup skills and join JFBL as a Makeup Artist, leading my new team.  She will continue to work on-location with brides as well as meeting women at the Beauty Library for private consulting.  Kelly will also continue to forward her education with hair styling. Her versatility makes her a true gem!  I am so proud to have her on my team! 

Thanks Kelly for sharing your gift with me and all of the brides you work with!

A little more about Kelly......

Favorite Color?  Pink, pink and more pink!

What do you love most about working with brides?  I really love being with a bride and her friends and's such a special day and I always feel lucky to be included in all the "getting ready fun".

How would you describe your personal style?  Hmmmmm.....that's a tough one.  I like to think of myself as trendy with a little bit of flair.

Your favorite makeup products?  I love bare eye base essentials by Trish McEvoy.  My newest favorite is the photo finish concealer by JF Minerals (Jennie's new makeup line).

Dogs or Cats?  Definitely Dogs!

Describe your personality in one word:  Honest

Your idea of the perfect date?  As cheesy as it sounds, a walk on the beach at sunset and a picnic dinner by candle light

Share a good makeup tip:  Avoid black eye liner for day time.  It can be too harsh.  Try a deep amethyst or charcoal instead.

Favorite food?  Pizza, even when it's not good, it's still good.

What sets you apart from other makeup artists?  Definitely my undeniable charm :)  On a more serious note, I always listen to my clients.  I always explain what I am doing when meeting for a lesson to ensure my clients know how to duplicate the look when they get home.  I love what I do and I think that puts people at ease.

What are some other interests?  I absolutely love to read.  If I don't have a book to read, I feel like something is not right in the world.  I love trivia shows, shopping, camping, shopping, anything fashion-related, and did I mention shopping?

Share a fond memory of your wedding:  Oh, there are so many.  Nate waiting for me at the alter was a big one.  He looked so handsome.  The whole experience was incredible.  There is something to be said for having all of the people you love most in one place at the same time. Oh, and the mashed potatoes!  They were sooo good!
