Makeup Artist & Blow Dry Stylist: Specializing in Weddings, Engagements, Photo-shoots, Graduations, Prom, Special Events, Celebrations/Parties, Music Videos and Runway
As a graduate of Seneca's two year Cosmetic Techniques and Management Diploma Program, I have been in the beauty industry for over 7 years and continue to learn and grow every single day.
Currently living in Toronto, I am a lover of animals and anything beauty related. I am a huge advocate and supporter in cruelty-free beauty and believe that we can still look and feel beautiful without the need to abuse animals in the process. Diligently trying to be more aware of how the products we use everyday on ourselves are being made and tested, to make that conscientious choice! You'll find my products used in my pro artist kit will all be proudly animal cruelty free!
My experience in the beauty industry...
I began working in the cosmetic field during my senior year of College as a Beauty Adviser for Cargo Cosmetics, and soon after with top selling skin care and makeup line, Lancome. During this time I began freelancing as a makeup artist for friends and family, as well as at a hair salon. Graduating from the Cosmetic Techniques and Management program at Seneca, I learned everything from skincare, product knowledge, makeup application, special effects, to basic esthetics and hairstyling. An opportunity arose to work for the Beauty Boutique where I was acquainted with many makeup and skincare brands. From Smashbox, Clarins, Clinique, Benefit, and Guerlain to name a few, I attended numerous makeup and skin care trainings from popular beauty companies every season that kept me current with up and coming product launches, trends and cosmetic education.
Furthering my hair styling techniques, I began working at a Blow Dry Bar as a makeup artist and hair stylist. I found my experience working at the salon to be a rewarding one. From learning how to improve my hair styling techniques to meeting amazing people, I'm grateful to have gotten to work with some talented stylists.
I was able to develop wonderful client relationships through the years, and have now taken my time to concentrate on freelancing as a makeup and hair artist for weddings and special occasions. This has brought me the most joy in my work and I hope to be able to share this with you!
