Jenni's Picks: featuring Victoria's Secret, J Brand, Canada Goose, MAC Cosmetics and Burberry!

Our resident beauty expert and lover of all 'gorgeous little things', Jenni-Lin Baldwick gave us a rundown of her top make-up, skin and of course, accessory picks from the latest issue of PIE Bookazine. Inspired by luxurious penthouse living, sensuality and indulgence.


 Before anything else, smooth, soft, sexy skin is the basis of ultimate head-to-toe glamour. Our biggest obstacle in acheiving this: nasty shaving! Surprisingly, Jenni's answer can actually be found in your boyfriend's cupboard. Nivea For Men Shave Gel is her first defense against dry, irritated skin. The next step to flawless beauty is of course: gorgeous lashes! With AMPLIF-eye's masacara-like lash and brow fortifier, you could potentially be saying goodbye to falsies forever.

For a soft and sexy look that packs a punch, Jenni kept the face fairly natural to draw attention to the bold lip. Bright jewel tones are one of the top beauty trends of Winter 2011, you can see it here on the lips and manicure.

On the face: MAC Face & Body Foundation, $39.00; MAC Studio Fix Powder, $32.00; MAC Powder Blush in Tenderling, $23.50
On the lips: MAC Lipstick in MAC Red, $17.50; MAC Lip Liner in Reed, $16.50

Jenni let the inner fashion editor in her come out when she put together these great looks! The obvious final piece of this puzzle is the clothes to match, and when you need to add that sharp touch, turn to these tried and true brands to achieve classy and sexy with a modern edge. One of the best ways to remain in style, is to dress for the weather, Hannah's pink rabbit fur earmuffs from Holt Renfrew work double duty here, and Veronica's overall casual-glam demeanor is topped off with eye-catching footwear from the ever eclectic John Fluevog.

    Jenni Lin has paved her way through the fashion and beauty industry over the past decade becoming the very successful makeup artist she is today. After a basic ten day makeup course in 1999, she left the training with a makeup kit, and Kevin Aucoin's book,  Making Faces - and with that sparked her passion for makeup artistry.  Over the years Jenni Lin played around with the makeup she had invested in, trying to figure out how to copy and recreate the beautiful images of celebrity makeup artists. One of her biggest original inspirations was the makeup of Scott Barns, in particular his work with Jennifer Lopez. This is now reflects in her work today. "I like taking a lot of makeup - sometimes up to 25 products and making it look look like the most natural makeup you've ever seen" says Jenni. Finding herself at the right place at the right time, she had the opportunity to join MAC Cosmetics as a makeup professional. During this time she broadened and mastered her own style with techniques she gained from over 9 years of constant training. Her tenure with MAC Cosmetics helped her to become a renowned makeup artist in the community and to build a loyal client following. For the past year, Jenni has joined the creative team at PIE Media Group as a key makeup artist and runway beauty director. Jenni Lin's work can be seen in a wide range of media including: fashion editorials, advertisements, runway, and book covers.


  1. Jenni is both a dear friend and an incredible artist of her craft. Her work portrays perfection, as Jenni considers every detail and angle on her own version of a painters canvas. She has the eye for every aspect of a cameras lens, and is able to acurately portray looks from a modern day marilyn to Prada's last look of the season. I find her work to be both very professional and flattering, and would highly recommend her for large scale shoots and eye-lash extension touch-ups, to every day make-up preparations.
