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.👌

Face of the Day (FOTD) – Edmonton Makeup Artist

image

Today’s face of the day using Lorac Pro Palette1.  I used 2 colors on my eyes ‘Gold’ and ‘Garnet’.  My 2 almost everyday go to eyeshadow colors.  I really love this palette.  I also have the Lorac Pro Palette2 but I have to say I tend to use the first palette more.

On my lips is the usual Wet n Wild matte lipstick in ‘Dollhouse Pink’ with NYX lip liner in ‘Barbie Pink’.  Both names so suiting for each other!

Photo Dump! – Edmonton Boudoir Makeup Artist

Whoa I’m so behind in posting pictures of my work on here.  Some of these photos go way back before the new year too.  Oops~!  Better late than never though right!?  🙂

This month has been quite busy with boudoir styling.  I love love love doing boudoir makeup & hair.  More so than anything else.  (wedding makeup comes a close second.)  With boudoir photo styling, I get to do my favorite smokey-eye all the time.  LOL  What can I say, I love my smokey eye + false lashes!  Using makeup to make a woman look and feel sexy and sensual is what I’m here to do.  And to have it all captured with photos is just an added bonus.  Having boudoir photos done is an unforgettable experience, especially 25+ years from now they’ll be proof that ‘hey check out how HOT I was!!!’  🙂

Myra – Edmonton Numa Model Makeup

One of my favorite sets by far this year!!!  I am so in love with Myra and her photos.  What a gem she is.  Myra is going to go far, such a talented and beautiful young lady!

For the ballerina set, I put on false doll-like lashes for Myra and then put her longggg hair into a high bun.  SO SO pretty!!!!

Then I quickly let her hair down and used a 1.5″ clipless curling rod to put loose waves into it for the next sets.  Literally took minutes!

I did a romantic and soft makeup look using light smokey eyeshadow colors to enhance Myra’s eye color.  Kept the blush to a minimal hint of pink and the perfect pink shade to go on her lips.  She has the perfect face!

Another year older and I’ve never felt better!!  Here’s my birthday face for dinner with the girls.

I focused more on contouring/highlighting and achieving that sexy,  glowy skin. 

My usual eye makeup and Chanel’s Glossimier Lip gloss in ‘Laser” to top it off and time to go pig out!!  🙂
