Conversations with Jennifer Garcia

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jennifer Garcia.

Hi Jennifer, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
I always loved making people feel special. I liked getting all my friends and family ready for any event and seeing their reactions. I loved seeing them feel so good about themselves.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
SO Many! I am the first-generation Saldadorean American. My parents immigrated from El Salvador and it made it difficult for me to pursue the beauty industry because their expectations were for me to graduate with a degree. I made them proud and graduated with my bachelor’s in psychology from University of Maryland Baltimore County, and then decided to pursue my dream of the beauty industry which was my first passion.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I am a Makeup Artist and specialize in Bridal Makeup. I am most proud of the opportunities I have had to work and meet such amazing vendors as well as brides and been lucky enough to be part of their special moments.

Networking and finding a mentor can have such a positive impact on one’s life and career. Any advice?
I have been lucky enough to have had friends in the industry who were willing to help me in areas where I lacked and they had experience in. Networking is really important, it really is about who you know and not what you know. I think my work ethic has been what has allowed me so many opportunities. Reaching out to vendors and offering my services and showing up and putting your best work out there.
