Bicycle Babes Promo Shoot

I recently got a chance to work on a project for a great cause. The Bicycle Babes Ride for a Cause is a charity event held every year.  You can learn all about it here http://www.bicyclebabes.ca/#!our_story/c173r
I did the makeup for their promo shoot and some of the models included Reiko from Real Housewives of Vancouver, tv personality Zara Durani, Whitecaps player Jay Dermit and Olympian Gold Medalist Ashleigh McIvor.  Check out the final pics from the shoot plus some behind-the-scenes and a little behind-the-scenes video from the day.
