About Me

What can I say, I love helping people be the best version of themselves.

I am a freelance Makeup Artist and a Makeup Artistry Program Instructor teaching Fashion & Photography Makeup for Vancouver Community College in Downtown Vancouver BC.

I love to share my passion for cruelty free makeup as well as cleaner, more natural makeup with people through writing and education. I am a RAW Artist as of 2017 - an international art show that holds events in North America, the UK and Australia. I am also an on call artist with the Green Beauty Collective located in Vancouver, BC and an on call artist with Elate Cosmetics located in Victoria, BC.

 

My background is varied; I have a business background in Accounting as well as 20+ years of customer service experience, 6 of those in the retail fashion industry.

 

From the runway to everyday, I can help you achieve the look you're after no matter the occasion.

 

I specialize in Bridal, Runway, Editorial, Pageant and Mature Makeup. I also offer private and group lessons, and I am fully mobile so I can be anywhere you need me!

 

If you are looking for a clean, reliable, personalized and a more boutique style service delivered in a professional manner, you've come to the right place!

 

No drama, no attitude, just a genuinely positive experience! Contact me today, I'd love to hear from you! Contact me today!
