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.👌

Mother Daughter Duo – Edmonton Wedding Makeup Artist 

I had the pleasure of doing bridal/bridesmaid makeup for this beautiful mother daughter duo last month.  Mother and daughter?!! More like sisters to me!  Bombshells! 😍😍



A Glamorous Indian Wedding – Edmonton Wedding Makeup Artist

Better late than never!  I’ve been extremely busy lately but here is my beautiful Indian bride from last month.  The first wedding of the year for me!  

Everything turned out perfect- even more so than the bridal trial we had prior.    She looked soooo beautiful!!

Indian bridal makeup is much more dramatic and bold than your average bride: dark eyes, heavy contour and red lips.  Together, all the colours just pop – they’re intense and so beautiful that it always always captures soooo beautifully on camera/film.  I love doing Indian weddings!!! ❤️

  
 

Bridal Trial – Edmonton Wedding Makeup Artist

  
My beautiful soon to be Bollywood bride!! Indian weddings are so elaborate and full of beautiful colours and details…I absolutely love it!  My bride-to-be wanted dramatic eyes and a red lip, my kind of girl!!  We did not do any false lashes here at the trial (because she had errands to run right after) BUT we will be adding dramatic false lashes on the day of the wedding which will complete the whole look that much more.  I can’t wait!!!  See you soon gorgeous!!

Nicola – Edmonton Wedding Makeup Artist

One of my brides was featured on the knot.com! Nicola envisioned a classic yet romantic makeup look.  She wanted a slightly bolder lip to go with a medium brown smokey eye.  Everything turned out perfect!

Wedding Day – Edmonton Wedding Makeup Artist

Another bright and early wedding day!  5am wakeup call! 😨😨  I was running on 2 hours of sleep; I couldn’t sleep the night before for some reason and it wasn’t even MY wedding!!! Lol 😂😂
As much as I would love to show up straight out of bed in my pjs without brushing my teeth or putting on makeup, I can’t do that to my brides! Or to the public!! 😮 So I still try to look as cute as my 5am self will let me.  Gotta look presentable for my girls!! 👍👌 😆

Today’s bride does not wear makeup at all so she wanted very natural looking makeup for her wedding.  We came up with a romantic and soft, super pretty bridal look!

For the maid of honor, I did a soft medium smokey eye using MAC’s ‘mythology’ eyeshadow with a light handed black eyeshadow to smoke out the outer corners.  How smokin’ is she!! 🔥🔥😍

Kristen’s Bridal Trial – Edmonton Wedding Makeup Artist

‘Love what you do and you’ll never work a day in your life’  #amen!! 🙌
Bridal Trials are one of my favs to do because I get to meet and get to know my bride before the big day.  It’s like having a gf over for a makeover; always a good time and great conversation!!  Not to mention it also helps make the day of wedding go smoothly and faster and not rushed since I know exactly what my bride wants for makeup 👍

Kristen wanted a ‘natural but not’ look for her wedding day and this is what we came up with.  Super soft and super pretty!  See you in September babe!! 💖
