This new mama has everything going for her. A makeup maven, homemaker, and loving wife, Jenn Streicher is a beautiful woman who not only creates the glow, but embodies it as well. Jenn Streicher is a seasoned celebrity make-up artist who's been making others glow for over 20 years. She was the first of three sisters to break into the beauty world, beginning her career at Warren-Tricomi in NYC. Since then she's traveled the world, spreading beauty and glamour all around her.
We spent time with Jenn at her magical house in Laurel Canyon, just around the corner from her sister Ashley, where she greeted us with almond milk cappuccinos and gingerbread. Her mid-century modern home is decorated to perfection; an eclectic mix of inspiring art and one-of- a kind pieces with a lush yard to match. We couldn't get over her old-school Hollywood bathroom, adorned with a glamorous vanity-light mirror and all. It's essentially a girl's fantasy, fully equipped with the best make-up tools and products you can get your hands on. Her walk-in closet is a dream also, filled with tons of vibrant, colorful clothing and fun paper flowers hung from the ceilings. What's so refreshing about someone like Jenn is her down to earth and a no-frills personality. She is kind, talented, approachable and as cool as mamas get.
