New Work - Xo magazine

I did a shoot with photographer Kelly Jill and models Veronica & Stephan. We had a great time shooting on location in Gastown. The makeup was fun and a little over the top but Veronica totally pulled it off.

Beautiful Brides

My wonderful client Erica recently sent me pictures from her wedding this past summer. I had the pleasure of doing makeup for her and her bridesmaids, who were all a blast even at 8am in the morning!

Makeup Tutorial: How to Cover a Zit

Zits are an inevitable part of life. Sometimes our skin is perfect, other times (usually right before a big date or special event!!) our skin likes to throw us a curveball. And there's no curveball worse than that one big zit that appears out of nowhere. But don't fear, this video shows you how you can make that zit disappear with the magic of makeup.

Please note: Acne is caused by a build up of oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria. As long as you cleanse your face well to remove all traces of makeup this will prevent clogged pores and causing the the zit to get worse.
