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 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.👌

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.
My last wedding of the year 😕. 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!! 🤔😉😀
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.👌
For Lisa we went for a brown smokey eye and red lip combo. Smoke show mamma!!! This is always a good look for blondes. 👍🏼 (this was before hair was done)
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! 🙂
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!!
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! 💕
‘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!! 💖
