Mature makeup at its finest for a photoshoot. I filled in her eyebrows which made a huge difference in framing the face and eyes! Then I paired the brows with a smokey eye and tamed those eye bags and then kept everything else pretty neutral so her eyes would be the main focus. Who says older women can’t wear a smokey eye?!
I absolutely loved this set. It was such a pleasure and soooo much fun to do Tinesha’s Dance themed photo shoot. As you can probably tell, Tinesha is a fabulous dance teacher/dancer and working with her was awesome!! We needed a look that would suit both a pretty ballerina and a cool hip hop dancer. We definately achieved that! ❤️

Here’s my sit down chat with the ladies of medleybeauty.com!!! I had so much fun chit chatting about everything! Get to know me a little bit more! 🙂
Last month I had the pleasure of working on a video shoot with http://www.chrisbernardphotography.com for mamachic.com. It was a longgg day but so much fun!!! Will share the video once it’s completed!!
The first look I did was casual daytime. Fresh and pretty was what we were going for. Also helped that the model was naturally gorgeous 😍
Second look was a night on the town. Classic smokey eye and red lip always does the trick! 👍
With the fabulous stylist and model. Always a fun time here!!! 👊😆😆😆
16yr old dancer Tiffany came today to http://www.chrisbernardphotography.com to do some headshots and dance pictures for her portfolio. She walked in all naturally pretty so it was easy for me to do her makeup. Something so graceful about a dancer; you can just tell she’s a dancer just by looking at her.
Tiffany did her own hair (high bun) so I did my job with the makeup. We agreed on false lashes, lighter eyeshadow, no bottom eyeliner, contoured cheeks and a light pink lip color. My camera phone does not do her eyeshadow justice, so I’m hoping Chris’ professional photos captured it. She looked so so pretty and I seriously can’t wait to see her pictures!!! We’ve had a few dancers before and their pictures all turned out SO breath taking. So nice meeting you Tiffany and mommy Pamela!!!
Tiffany and Pamela were stuck in traffic so this is what I do when my clients are running late. #selfie of course!!!
Love it Love it when my clients take selfies and sends them to me!! And I wasn’t even done her hair yet~ hehehe Cassie looked so HOT and she knew it! =)
For most clients, I normally do a medium smokey eye using neutral bronzey colors with a lighter lip. Unless they specifically ask for a certain look/colors. Cassie asked for a ‘dark but not too dark silvery-gray smokey eye with a porn star bright pink lip color’ LOVE IT. It was fun to do something a little different today and it turned out fabulous! Cassie loved it. Her friend, Lisa, who was also there loved it. I loved it. We all loved it! hahaha
This one is from my camera. Work it babe!! It was so much fun chatting and laughing with you!!!
My 2nd client today asked for the total opposite look. She wanted very natural, no false lashes, no black eyeliner on the bottom waterline with a very light, neutral lip. She also showed me a picture of Scarlett Johansson’s hair that she loved so I replicated by curling her hair with a smaller clipless rod. It turned out so beautiful! Such a natural beauty!
And of course, I had to selfie my outfit of the day!! My day is not complete without a #selfie!! Yes!~ sunglasses and shoes inside! #sofierce lol 😀 Happy weekend everyone!!! It’s finally spring here!!!

This was from last week but better late than never right! Brianne looked so so pretty, just like a Victoria’s Secret Angel. 🙂 If I don’t update right away or write down what I used, I always forget. This is the case right now. LOL. Sorry! But she looks gorg doesn’t she?! And that’s all that really matters ok! 😀
And of course, my must take selfie at work! Things I do when I’m bored or waiting for clients/in between clients! haha
Still keeping it vampy and not spring-ish yet because the weather here is crappy n cold still! #sooverwinter #albertan
Whoa I’m so behind in posting pictures of my work on here. Some of these photos go way back before the new year too. Oops~! Better late than never though right!? 🙂
This month has been quite busy with boudoir styling. I love love love doing boudoir makeup & hair. More so than anything else. (wedding makeup comes a close second.) With boudoir photo styling, I get to do my favorite smokey-eye all the time. LOL What can I say, I love my smokey eye + false lashes! Using makeup to make a woman look and feel sexy and sensual is what I’m here to do. And to have it all captured with photos is just an added bonus. Having boudoir photos done is an unforgettable experience, especially 25+ years from now they’ll be proof that ‘hey check out how HOT I was!!!’ 🙂
All makeup & hair by me.

Today I went to visit Chris & Kimber of http://www.chrisbernardphotography.com at the Bridal Fantasy Show here in Edmonton. Their set-up was absolutely gorgeous!!! It truly represented their clean and modern style and really showcased Chris’ awesome work. I also had tons of fun checking out all the different vendors and pretending to plan my imaginary wedding muahahaha
This was such a beautiful set-up. Very romantic, whimsical and garden-esque. Definately a nice change from the usual all white + purple lighting decor that most people have for weddings nowadays.
Trying to get a good picture with my 2yr old is hard nowadays but we did it! =)
