Over the past 10 years, I have earned numerous Awards and Accolades as a Professional Makeup Artist. As a top Makeup Artist in Canada, I am nationally recognized as one of the top artists in my industry. I couldn’t have earned this recognition without all of my friends, family and beautiful customers, and most of all, my wonderful school Blanche Macdonald!. Thank you all so very much.

I love you all!
Let’s Face It, Beauty!
