Meet Janelle

Receiver of 4 EMMY Nominations, 4 years in a row and winner of an EMMY for Makeup Artistry in 2016, Janelle Thomason opened The Makeup Loft in 2010, winning The Knot Awards consecutively. She has serviced thousands of clients as well as worked with commercial clients such as Fox Sports, DPTV, Miss Universe Organization, Ford Motor Co, General Motors, and Weight Watchers. Janelle has 15 years of makeup experience and has trained with the top artists in the industry such as Mario Dedivanovic in 2010, and Scott Barnes in 2011. Opening The Makeup Loft has been a rewarding experience for Janelle, having herself and staff beautifying 200+ happy brides along with their bridesmaids and family members each year. With a passion for cosmetics, Janelle often found how frustrating it was for her clients and herself as an artist, to choose quality cosmetics that looked great in person, on camera and film. In 2015, she launched the custom cosmetic line, Cosmakery, that is now proudly worn by all of the clients we service at The Makeup Loft. Janelle is a powerhouse of talent, knowledge and expertise, teaching these same qualities to the staff that she trains to work on-site for bridal.
