“Lustre is one of the best spots in town and JENNIFER IS THE ONLY PERSON I TRUST TO TAKE CARE OF MY SKIN. The space is a hidden gem in the West Loop, and when I’m there I never want to leave. The quality of her treatments is far better than other spas I’ve been to. She does a great combo of exfoliation and masks that all smell delightful. Jennifer always seems to know exactly what my skin needs. I always leave there so relaxed and with glowing skin. Ask her about the rooftop, the sauna and soaking tub are to die for! Go see her, you won’t regret it!”

“For the past few years, I’ve been treating myself to a biannual facial from Jen at Lustre and I’m not kidding when I say I look forward to it for weeks. The Boutique itself has an amazing electric yet calm energy. Pure white walls, dark cement floors, and huge windows that allow you to watch the Green line pull through the West Loop. You easily sense the pulse of the city, but fortunately the inside is a quiet well-designed temple.
The facial procedure is a dream, held in a cozy private room. Jen is a master at knowing just the right product to use for any skin type. She balances extractions and peels with beautifully cooling spritzes and moisturizers and she gives a shoulder massage that is to die for! I have a tightly wound personality and I was so relaxed during one facial that I fell asleep! I also always appreciate talking to Jen after my facial to discuss skin maintenance. She has thoughtful recommendations for upkeep and has introduced me to incredible products. Lustre is THE BEST place I’ve found in the city to cover all your skin care needs.“

Most recently, Jennifer completed 135 hours of fundamental training for cosmetic tattooing with an emphasis on 3D microblading brows at the Advanced Permanent Cosmetic Academy. The Academy is a state accredited school, while many others are not. Jennnifer is licensed and insured and has been approved by the Illinois Department of Public Health. Her 22+ years of shaping and grooming client eyebrows has made for a natural transition to microblading.
Jennifer attended Pivot Point’s aesthetics program after studying Retail Management and graduating from Purdue University. She then went on to pursue her passion for skincare. She studied European Techniques and Advanced Skin Analysis at the Dermal Institute, and attended both The Conservatory of Esthetics in specialty make-up techniques, and New York’s Aveda Institute in Ayruvedic and Himalayan treatments. She has also trained under Dr. Faran Bokhari, a leading Chicago trauma surgeon and Lustre medical advisor, to perform advanced medical-based techniques.
She strives to create personalized systems for each individual using advanced techniques and professional products. Inspired by the philosophy of a healthy balance both cosmetically and internally, Jennifer’s level of personal care goes beyond skin treatment, and she will often recommend herbal supplements, acupuncture, or hydrotherapy.
“There is a satisfaction and pride that comes with offering my knowledge to aid an individual in reaching their goals.”
