Did you go to school for Makeup Artistry? Where?
I attended QC Makeup Academy’s Master Makeup Artistry program and graduated as a Professional Master Makeup Artist. I have experience in many styles of makeup artistry including corrective makeup, bridal, fashion, photography, men’s grooming and airbrushing. I was lucky enough to be published in Surreal Beauty Magazine in June 2014. I continue to advance my artistry with all of the webinars, workshops, and hands-on play time I can get and still love my job after 5+ years working in the field professionally.
Do you offer Airbrushing? What are the benefits?
Yes, I do offer airbrush makeup for any makeup application, and it is automatically included in the Bridal makeup package and for bridesmaids. I use top-of-the-line silicone based makeup to guarantee a flawless finish on any skin type for 12+ hours. The oil-free and hypo-allergenic formula make it a suitable choice for all ages and skin types, even extremely sensitive or oily skin! Natural looking in person, and perfect for HD photos. It’s cry, sweat, and transfer-proof properties make it ideal for hot summer days and bridal parties. Traditional (liquid/cream) and vegan+cruelty-free makeup formulas also available.
Can you handle large bookings? Do you bring help?
Yes, I can handle bookings of all sizes–my largest wedding party to date is 15! If your party is particularly large or if there is a lack of time I have talented assistants who are happy to help. Please note that there is a $50 fee for each additional assistant that I provide.
Do you offer Hairstyling?
Feel free to contact the following ladies regarding their availability for your event date. Each of them are very talented and mobile within Windsor/Essex County.

How long is my application/appointment going to be?
Bridal Parties: For the bridal makeup trial, expect to be with us for 1.5-2 hours. On the wedding day, please allow 35mins per party member, and 1 full hour for the Bride. To give an example, a party of 5 ladies can be comfortably completed within 3-3.5 hours. I will work with you to create a cohesive itinerary to ensure everything runs smoothly on the wedding day.
Individual clients: Please allow 1 full hour for your appointment. While application duration is usually only 30-45 minutes, this allows some playtime for more complex looks, adjustments, and last-minute requests.
Where do you work from? Do you travel?
I have an in-home studio located in Colchester, Ontario and I also offer my services on-location within Windsor & Essex County. Travel outside of W/EC & destination packages are available upon request. Note: complimentary on-site artistry is provided for wedding parties within W/EC.
What brands of makeup do you use?
I carry a variety of professional and high-end products to accommodate all aspects of my services. Included are; RCMA, Eve Pearl, Viseart, Graftobian, TemptuPRO, Makeup Forever and much more. I have an extensive colour range from alabaster to ebony and have a perfect match for every unique skin tone. I also keep an array of Vegan and Cruelty-free brands such as; Inglot, NYX Cosmetics, Pacifica, Bite Beauty, Urban Decay, Tarte, Burt’s Bees, and so on. I use top-of the-line brushes and tools, all of which are thoroughly cleaned & sanitized before and after every client–always! Q-tips, disposable sponges and applicators are well-stocked and thrown out after single use.
How do I book you? Do you need a deposit?
In order to book your wedding date, a minimum of 4 party members (bride +3) must be booked with a signed contract and a 50% non-refundable deposit of the grand total. Booking can be done by scheduling an in-studio appointment to come by and chat, or electronically via Adobe Document Sign and payment via email money transfer or the Square payment app. *Please note that wedding dates (particularly Saturday’s April-October) can book over a year in advance, so please don’t hesitate to contact me to discuss the details of your special day!
If you’re an individual looking for an application, a 50% non-refundable deposit will be required to retain your selected date & time. As much notice as possible is appreciated, and is more likely to guarantee your desired appointment, especially during prime wedding season months (April-October).
