Jennifer Rasa’s vision for “Pretty Please” comes from her love of makeup and skin care. She has been involved in the beauty industry for over 16 years assisting top spa and salon owners. This experience has enabled her to learn and grow within the field. While working in the industry throughout her high school and college years, Jennifer realized at an early age, that her true passion was to make people look and feel beautiful. She started her career by performing makeup applications on countless brides, bridal parties, models and actors. This inspired her to create her own freelance makeup business.
Becoming so involved in makeup, Jennifer began to realize that in order to have flawless makeup, one needed to also concentrate on their skin underneath the makeup. With that realization, came her obsession with skin care. Although she already had a 4-year degree from SUNY Farmingdale in business communications, Jennifer enrolled herself in the New York Institute of Beauty, where she received her esthetic’s license. It now became her mission to help her clients achieve their best possible complexions.
Realizing that beautiful skin is the canvas for beautiful makeup, Jennifer started researching different skin care lines that could help her clients achieve those desired results. After experimenting with, and being disappointed with so many different product lines, Eminence Organic Skin Care came into her life and she never looked back! Her experience with using Eminence products combined with her unique expertise in facial technique has been a proven success. Jennifer is also a firm believer in working with the skin from the inside out. This philosophy is put into practice by coaching her clients on important lifestyle choices in order to further help correct each skin condition. With the combination of both lifestyle changes and organic skin care treatments, she has been able to help her clients heal difficult skin disorders such as acne, rosacea, and premature aging.
In addition to being a New York State licensed esthetician and the proud owner of Pretty Please Skin Care Studio, Jennifer has also worked as an educator for the world-renowned president of Eminence Organic Skin Care, Boldijarre Koronczay. With Boldijarre’s client list including celebrities such as Katherine Heigl and Jennie Garth, be assured that Jennifer’s training has been nothing short of perfection! She has studied, acquired and delivers the secrets of Hungarian massage and facial techniques to her clients. These techniques provide instant skin plumping and rejuvenation using award-winning natural and organic skin care products bursting with fruit pulp, seeds, herbs, and biodynamic ingredients. With the success of her organic skin care treatments, Jennifer has devoted her full attention to facial treatments and invites you to see for yourself that you too can achieve the complexion that you’ve always dreamed of.
Is it any wonder that Jennifer’s Pretty Please Skin Care Studio was named one of the top ten facial studios in Manhattan by Racked NY?

From an early age, Juliana remembers being fascinated with having beautiful, healthy flawless skin and always loved experimenting with different products. It wasn’t until several years ago, however, when she developed cystic acne that skincare became an obsession.
Juliana embarked on a quest to heal her skin and realized that her acne was the source of constant stress, poor diet, lack of exercise and irritating skincare products. After changing her lifestyle choices, nourishing her body with wholesome foods, regular exercise and switching to 100% natural skincare Juliana saw her skin make a complete turnaround. This was a huge Aha moment and it’s when Juliana realized that achieving healthy clear skin is all about a balanced healthy lifestyle paired with amazing natural and organic skincare like Eminence.
This experience fueled Juliana with a passion to help as many people as she could with their skin and so she decided to leave her job in the social work field and enroll at Atelier Esthetique Institute of Esthetics, where she received her Esthetics diploma. From first-hand experience, Juliana knows how debilitating any skin condition can be for a person’s self-esteem and she has made it her mission to share her knowledge.
When she’s not working her magic on your skin, Juliana shares her skincare expertise and her lifestyle inspirations over on her blog. Now as a licensed Esthetician and after several years in the industry, Juliana is truly living her life’s true purpose!
