I guess you can say I'm a "girly girl" who has always been obsessed with everything beauty, makeup and fashion. I look forward to attending events that provide me with the excuse to shop, dig into my makeup collection, and really glam it up!
Social media has been taking the world by storm. Over the last few years beauty gurus have been creating tutorials, sharing tips and showcasing their work online. I have always been more of a visual learner, so this interactive way of learning quickly replaced my beauty magazines. I soaked up as much as I could from Youtube and Beauty Bloggers, but I still wanted to learn more. After much deliberation I took the plunge and enrolled at Artists Within Makeup Academy, in Calgary Alberta, where I later received my Makeup Artist Diploma and International Certification (ITEC). Although I initially took the course to perfect my skills as a personal interest it has since transpired into so much more!
Shortly after completing my course I was contacted with an offer to work as an event artist for YSL Beauty. It was such an amazing opportunity. It truly helped to build my confidence and further improve my skills before I decided to turn my passion into a profession and branch out as a freelance artist. I absolutely love the creative people I get to meet and work with, being able to showcase my artistic side, witnessing people's reactions after seeing the final product, and being a part of their big day! It is truly amazing to wake up every day and do what I love!
