About Bombshell Creations
Bombshell Creations was started in 2009 by one of the leading makeup artists in northeast Georgia and Athens native Jeris Farmer. She wanted to make people more beautiful in the setting of their choice and quickly became sought after through word of mouth referrals. Now she travels with her team of Bombshell Girls on-site to her client’s location to provide flawless makeup and glamorous hair for every occasion. BombShell Creations specializes in Makeup Artistry including Theatrical Makeup, Hair Styling as well as Airbrush Tanning. From weddings, photo shoots and pageants to the runway or for a special night out and any look in between, you will be left looking like a “Bombshell”.
Jeris Farmer is CEO and founder of Bombshell Creations and the proud mother of her son Buck. She has over 15 years of customer service experience and will do everything in her power to make sure that all of her clients leave with a smile. Nothing makes her day more than seeing the look on a client’s face when they see themselves in the mirror for the first time after their “Bombshell” makeover.
A small town country girl born and raised in Athens Georgia, Jeris started working for her parents at the ripe age of eight. She could barely see over the countertop to speak with customers so her dad stood her up on a milk carton to collect money at one of their restaurants. Jeris worked in the family business her whole life helping in the restaurants collecting money, preparing food, building tables, landscaping, problem solving, and managing numerous employes. She learned the value of a dollar at a very young age and has always worked for the things she wanted. Jeris has always been a firm believer in the saying, “Do unto others as you would want them to do unto you.” This is the mission statement that she bases her life and business around.
While working for the family business, she always had jobs on the side as an independent makeup artist, print model and promotional model. In college she was a biology major with the high hopes of being a dentist and graduated with a degree in Applied Science and Arts from Gainesville State. Jeris got more into the beauty field after college and started Bombshell Creations in 2009.
Her idea with Bombshell Creations was to make ladies beautiful in the setting of their choice. She started out by doing makeup in sorority homes on campus as well as for nightlife entertainers. Quickly, the word began to spread and before she knew it clients started calling her to do their weddings, and their friend’s and family’s weddings. The number of weddings have doubled each year and the business continues to grow from highly recommended referrals.
In addition to weddings, Bombshell Creations has added different styles of makeup services including theatrical, zombie, vampire, character, prosthetics, bald caps and tattoo coverage. Jeris has had the opportunity to work with many brides, models, actresses, actors, producers, pageant goers, dancers, sororities, magazines, photographers, fitness competitors, singers and last but not least charity events. Helping other people has always been her passion and she takes any opportunity she can to donate her time and skills when they can help bring a smile to someone that is in need.
Paige Buffolino is a makeup artist with Bombshell Creations. Since she was a little girl, she was always known as a makeup enthusiast. She would receive a boatload of requests from friends and family to do their makeup either for special events or just for fun. As she got older, their requests turned into encouragement for her to pursue it professionally.
Originally from Coral Springs, FL, Paige moved to Georgia to study veterinary medicine. In 2013, she started as a freelance artist with MAC Cosmetics. However, what was once a hobby quickly turned into a passion and the beginning of a career. She changed her major to business and began working weddings, local fashion shows, and photo shoots on the side. Paige progressed titles at MAC several times before deciding she wanted to get out of the sales side of beauty and get more into special events, where she can get to really have fun collaborating on looks and building relationships with her clients.
Although she has yet to have children, Paige refers to her two Boxers, Ellie and Harley, as her “fur babies.” She loves taking them out on hikes, to the park, and even out to lunch! In her free time, you can find Paige playing with her pups, riding her Harley Davidson, or binge-watching Netflix (LOL)!

Courtney will take any chance she gets to go to the dog park or volunteering at the humane society. Helping others is very rewarding to her and Courtney feels like she has the chance to do it every weekend with her clients.
