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) 

NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream – Edmonton Beauty Bloggerย 

I have a few of these soft matte lip creams from NYX but I just picked this up in the color ‘Prague’ and so far I am loving the color!!  Perfect transition from summer to fall.  The formula is a little drying so I suggest you moisturize your lips beforehand.  But for $7.99 CAD (it was on sale at Shoppers) you can’t beat this drugstore goodie!!! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

Dance Like No One’s Watching – Edmonton Makeup Artist

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! โค๏ธ

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!!! โค๏ธ

  
 

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!!
