Joy Lager and Jae Lee Paredes both have a long history in the beauty industry. In 2016, the respected freelance makeup artists combined forces to open JL Makeup Studio in Washington.

“We were turning away I don’t know how many brides individually each year,” Lager says. “We wanted to have a place for them to go.”
 


Now a popular destination where bridal parties can get their hair and makeup done, the one-stop-shop beauty destination also specializes in lash extensions, lifts and tints and body waxing. Want to learn how to apply your own face paint like an expert? Lager and Paredes, who employ 15 hand-selected freelance bridal makeup artists and hairstylists, offer group makeup workshops as well as one-on-one, customized makeup lessons.

The studio also sells a complete line of in-house makeup, as well as the Bdellium brush line and theBalm Cosmetics.
