JENN STREICHER / MAKE-UPOne could say Jenn Streicher's career began in her teenage years at the Nordstoms department store in Sacramento. It was there that she commuted from her small hometown of Grass Valley, CA to work behind the makeup counter to what she felt was a daily journey into the divine and glamorous. She continued from her high school years through college and after which found herself in San Francisco. Eventually the opportunity to move to New York City emerged and she did so, with no job waiting and without ever having been to Manhattan.
Jenn adapted quickly and began working in an uptown salon. An offer to assist a makeup artist for a day on an editorial job came her way and she realized then that this was her true medium of choice. After persistent declarations of this and pressure for a chance, the door opened and she never looked back. She spent the next five and a half years there developing her craft and building a solid portfolio.
In 2006, Jenn left the east coast for return to her native California and laid down roots in Los Angeles. While her career first bloomed with men's grooming, she has also now evolved into one of the industry's leading makeup artists.
