I am a lover of good fashion, road trips, creative writing, cooking, fine wine and I am passionate about all things beauty. My love of this field started at the young age of 13 when I started being creative applying my own makeup, and my passion of makeup developed as I watched it transform a person's natural beautiful features, giving one of the best feelings in making someone look and feel their most beautiful.
If I'm not applying some fabulous lashes or doing makeup, you can find me with a glass of wine, reading a good book, cooking up something fancy in the kitchen or planning my next trip. My love of this industry only grows more and more with all the amazing people I get to meet, work with and all the experiences I get to be apart of.

Joy was an absolute wonder to work with. The trial went smoothly, and the wedding day was perfect. I added two of my bridesmaids to the contract very last minute and Joy handled everything with ease. She is talented and amazing with or without a makeup brush
Joy was extremely sweet and knew exactly what I wanted! She did an amazing job with my spray tan (no orange!!), my makeup and my hair! I’m glad I chose her to help make me feel like a princess on my big day, I’d recommend 10000 times!
Joy was so wonderful to work with from the moment I reached out to her. She was quick to reply and gave me a phone call to talk about my vision, my daily makeup, and ask about any allergies or sensitivities and was very professional. She kept everything on schedule on wedding morning and was even able to add in some makeup for the flower girl. She had us ready with time to relax before we had to start pictures. On top of that, she was so sweet and brought a calming presence to wedding morning! I am so glad I hired her and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for wedding day makeup in the Glacier area!
Joy is absolutely amazing at what she does! Very fun to visit with while getting your service done and she is very professional and uplifting! She did my wedding hair and makeup and I couldn’t have asked for it to be any more perfect! She also does my lash extension and with them being very well taken care of I can go 3 weeks before a fill!
"Joy was very communicative with and responsive leading up to my elopement. She discussed all the details and my vision so that my day was perfect. It was a seamless experience and you shouldn't hesitate to book her for your wedding or elopement!"
Absolutely amazing women. They listened to everyone’s ideas for hair and did exactly what the girls asked for. The makeup was done perfect for each girl, they were so receptive to everyone’s input and took into consideration each girls opinion. It was also wonderful that they came to the location in the middle of nowhere half way up a mountain, made it so convenient for all us to stay on location the entire day!
Joy was an absolute blessing I found her just in time for my wedding about 2 months before. She was punctual and responded pretty quickly when I had questions. She did a make up trial 2 weeks before my wedding and made all the changes I had requested right then and there. She arrived early and was very pleasant the day of our wedding she even did her best to make the changes I had requested that morning. My hair and makeup looked absolutely stunning!!! 10/10 recommend.

She was wonderful and created the exact look that I wanted for my big day!! : ) she was very warm and sweet and made me feel at ease while getting ready!
Joy did my makeup for my elopement in Montana. She was amazing! She brought my vision to life and did exactly what I wanted. She was professional, prompt and took all my stresses away! I would recommend Joy Renee to everyone! She is sweet and passionate about her work and it shows.

“Joy did a phenomenal job on my bridal makeup as well as my four bridesmaids and mom. She traveled from Whitefish to Bozeman for my big day and her pricing was very reasonable. There were even some issues with the hotel arrangements and she handled it with patience and grace! The skin tones across my bridal this group range from very fair to very deep, which made me very nervous when seeking a makeup artist. Joy handled it masterfully and everyone looked SO good! I was nervous about my eyebrows and lipstick as I am very particular on these things in my daily makeup wearing. Joy listened to my concerns and was very flexible in ensuring I had my dream bridal makeup! I would absolutely recommend her, especially for bridal parties with diverse skin tone ranges!”

Beautiful through and through
Joy was such a wonder to work with. She was extremely flexible and understanding, even in a time crunch. She handled everything smoothly and made me feel more beautiful than I ever thought I could be. If I had to do it all over again, I would choose Joy without a second thought.
Joy was absolutely a pleasure to work with! Very responsive and flexible and also super personable and just all around fun to hang out with. I was very happy with her lash extensions and prep work during the trial, and she did an exquisite job interpreting my inspiration photos! I felt like an elven princess afterwards!
I had planned my entire wedding since it was destination via phone and email. She called me to ask about all the services needed and the look that I wanted. I sent her a couple pictures and she went above and beyond. I was so pleased with how everything turned out. She left me a touch up bag (which I didn't need because everything stayed put for the entire day/night). Loved all the products she used. My skin felt so light but her coverage and techniques were amazing.

Joy is an incredible makeup artist who went the extra mile to make sure me, my entire family and bridal party felt beautiful. She was incredibly friendly and accommodating, and I am forever grateful! She was open to feedback on a few very minor tweaks to my makeup - she wanted to make sure I was 100% confident. It turned out STUNNING! Thank you so much Joy!

Joy is so good at her job! I don’t wear a lot of make up in general and I had expressed that to her and she made my look so effortless and stunning! I honestly didn’t have much ideas when it came to my hair and I am completely obsessed with how my hair turned out! Joy is so amazing!

Joy was a pleasure to work with on my wedding day! She arrived early and worked quickly to do hair and makeup on myself, two bridesmaids, my mom, and mother and law. Joy and her assistant did great work! The makeup was exactly what I asked for - a natural bridal look, not too heavy. She even put false eyelashes on me (which I never do) and I still looked natural - just enhanced a little for photos 😉 also, the hairstyles on my bridesmaids and the moms were 10 out of 10!! ⭐️ SO CUTE. I would definitely recommend 🤍
