My niece wanted to be a reindeer for Halloween.  Aunty Lily delivered or what!? Bambi who?!! Lol

Mature Makeup – Edmonton Makeup Artist 

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.👌

Vietnamese Concert – FOTD (Face of the Day) 

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? 🙂

My nose contour is on point and my choker tho right? 👌

BTW my eyebrows are all microbladed by myself.  👊💁🏻 Will have to make a post about that soon.

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!!! ❤️

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!! 🔥🔥😍

#selfie with the maid of honor!  💕
