Mature Makeup – Edmonton Makeup Artistย 

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?! 

Asian Eyes – Edmonton Asian Makeup Artist

Asian eyes can be quite challenging when it comes to makeup, especially when doing a smokey eye on mono lids.  

Most are afraid to use too much dark eyeshadow or too much eyeliner because it will make your eyes look even smaller.  

But if done right, a dark smokey eye can look super sexy & sultry and definitely enhance the shape of Asian eyes.๐Ÿ‘Œ

Vietnamese Concert – FOTD (Face of the Day)ย 

Last night’s makeup.  When I go out I like to stick to what I know looks best on me and that’s usually a medium smokey eye paired with pink lips.  The classic combo. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t look good with that.  I don’t experiment too much with crazy colours anymore like when I was younger.  If it ain’t broke don’t fix it right? ๐Ÿ™‚

My nose contour is on point and my choker tho right? ๐Ÿ‘Œ

BTW my eyebrows are all microbladed by myself.  ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ’๐Ÿป Will have to make a post about that soon. 

Fall Bride – Edmonton Wedding Makeup Artistย 

My last wedding of the year ๐Ÿ˜•. That means winter is slowly creeping up on us.  Nooooo!!!  Although it’s hibernation mode very soon here for us Albertans,  I highly suggest any 2017 brides to book me, your wedding makeup artist ASAP because time and space is limited because remember, there are only 4 weekends in a month!! ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜€

This weekend’s bride was one of my favs. She is already so naturally beautiful that all we had to do was go for a soft, glowy, romantic look.  The end result was so pretty!!  Perfect bridal look for someone who doesn’t want to look too done up but just enough to look good in photos.๐Ÿ‘Œ


I also had the pleasure of doing the bride’s friends’ makeup as well and here I did my classic smokey eye to compliment dark brown eyes and a pink blush & lip combo to top it off.  Sexy sexy!! 

For Lisa we went for a brown smokey eye and red lip combo.  Smoke show mamma!!! This is always a good look for blondes. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ (this was before hair was done)

Unfortunately I didn’t take any pics of the 2nd wedding party as well because we were so short on time. Again. #weddingproblems
