My Journey to Professional Artistry
My journey into the world of makeup started by falling in love with its transformative capabilities. To see someone come to me feeling low or self deprecative, and leave loving themselves, is a true highlight to my day. I have never been one to conform to the rules imposed on us by society. Thats why I love makeup so much. The rules are meant to be broken!
I studied the art of makeup at the prestigious Blanche Macdonald Centre in Vancouver, British Columbia. While there, I learned vital building blocks that have allowed me to grow my success to where it is now. Learning from some of the industries best artists, I was filled with drive and had an oasis of knowledge to pull from.
I have worked for amazing companies along my journey such as Illamasqua, Shu Uemura, and MAC Cosmetics. Now when not freelancing, you can find me at my new home, Annie Young Boutique Spa, located in Westmount, Quebec. It's here that I've been able to expand my knowledge to offer more services such as Brow Tinting/Shaping, Keratin Lash Lifts, and Brow Henna! I am also please to be a member of the faculty at the Annie Young School of Makeup where I'm able to expand the gifts of budding new artists. From each of these companies I have picked up new tricks and tips from some fantastic humans.
This has allowed me to continue my growth into the artist I am today.
I look forward to meeting you and creating some makeup magic!
