Vancouver Fashion ezine Launch event

Last week I attended an event for the reveal of the new print edition of Vancouver Fashion ezine Magazine. It was held at the Jennifer Kostuik gallery in downtown Vancouver. It was a packed event, lots of industry people, photographers, stylists, makeup artists. It was nice seeing some familiar faces I haven't seen in a while. But the main reason I was attending the event was because I did the makeup for the cover of the magazine!
It was shot by the wonderful photographer Renat and our model Lauren was gorgeous. Here are some pics from the event.
