I don’t know a woman who hasn’t stretched across a makeup counter and begun to smile and dream. Colour and texture have this sudden power to stir our emotions drumming up the notion of beauty as energy and strength.

With it’s “mood altering” appeal, makeup has created a nation of addicts. We are drawn non-stop to that sense of high we get when we look our best. And as the line between science and art keeps on blurring, we’ll see products reinventing themselves in their quest to keep us “drugged.” Makeup no longer “covers” the skin the way it did in decades past. Now it IS our skin; and it feeds our skin. As a makeup artist, It is my promise to you to recreate everything that is healthy and beautiful–the beauty we see in a young child.

Makeup has created a nation of addicts

So what do I look for in the products that stock my kit? I want a mixture that will make your cheeks glow, your eyes sparkle, your skin flawless, your lips full and soft, your lashes thick and curly, and your eyes bright, round and huge. I want products that will beg your uniqueness to shine through, whether you see a natural beauty or a glamour goddess that emerges. Makeup is a wonder product that breathes life into us; so we fall  in love with it. As long as cosmetic companies are going to toy with our affections and appeal to our senses to both look good and feel good, we’ll engage in that love affair. And I make sure my clients go a long for the ride.

I once heard it said, “everything has beauty but not everyone sees it.” So I pick up my brush every day to tell a colour story that brings that beauty to life. What I do with that colour has to tell me and the world about my client’s personality, her personal style, fashion sense and lifestyle.

Time to shelve these makeup trends?

How do I make bridesmaids look beautiful without outshining the bride?

Nothing can take away from the bride... T he first thing we are told in makeup school is to never make the bridesmaids look better than the bride! The bottom line is that if we are being realistic as artists, we know that often bridesmaids are payingdon't miss the rest!
