Make Me Pretty, Make Me Laugh

Makeup tips, inappropriate jokes, and inside stories from the beauty industry.

  • Beauty is serious business but thanks to Jeremy it doesn’t have to be daunting or confusing. Now I know what’s bullshit and what’s effective and I got to laugh while I learned about it.

    Author of My Fair Junkie: A memoir of getting dirty and staying clean
  • What do you get when you mix a standup comedienne and a makeup artist? No really, I’m asking. Jeremy has a unique talent of blending her biting humor with her impressive beauty knowledge. You get the best of both worlds!

  • Who knew a comedian would know so much about skin care and beauty? I may have breakthrough formulas, but Jeremy gets astonishing laughs.

  • Jeremy made me pretty by teaching me the benefits of good skin care while making me piss my pants with laughter.

  • Jeremy taught me how to apply bronzer correctly and tells me I have beautiful skin every time I see her. These are two of many reasons I continue to invite her to all of my parties.
