Feel like yourself, with a #touchofJoya

My name is Joanne McDonough, the founder and artist at Joya Beauty. My approach to designing the perfect makeup look is equal parts technical and personal, as I love taking the skills I’ve learned training in NYC, LA, and beyond, and applying them to your unique vision. Since 2002, my focus has been providing a luxury makeup experience for every bride, or client ahead of their special event. It truly fills my cup to connect with each of my brides and their loved ones, and it’s an honor to spend such sacred moments with them, like their wedding morning. I am located in the beautiful Seacoast area of New Hampshire, but I will travel anywhere for my brides. My personalized, genuine approach as a vendor can be felt from our first conversation to your first steps down the aisle.

Let’s talk and clearly you will know within 5 minutes that I am very passionate about makeup and skin care. Making you feel as beautiful as you look is my number one priority.
