‘PRODUCT REVIEW’ Original Tangle Teezer

By | Product Review, Uncategorized | No Comments

Another review folks-this time for a new innovative hair brush called the Original Tangle Teezer.  Now I must admit that I had seen this brush in various cosmetic supply stores and I always just passed right by it.  I even thought it kinda resembled a dog brush! But, when I was asked to try it out I had a closer look at the TT and all of the buzz out there actually got me curious. Firstly what is the Tangle Teezer? On the TT website it is described as “a professional detangling hairbrush that is loved by hairdressers and used…

‘A 3-Day Wedding’

By | Bridal, Uncategorized | No Comments

With all the weddings I have done over my 15+ year career you think I would have done a South Asian Wedding.  But for whatever reason it never really happened.  I have done makeup for a South Asian Bridal Magazine-Lavish Dulhan but never an actual REAL bride…until this summer! I met my bride Natasha through a referral.  She needed hair and makeup services for 3 days over the August long weekend-Friday would be the Hannah, Saturday the ceremony and Sunday the reception.  I first did her makeup and hair trial and immediately I appreciated Natatsha’s great sense of humour!  I also…

‘PRODUCT REVIEW’ The Balm’s Manizer Duo Kit

By | Product Review, Uncategorized | No Comments

I was lucky enough to be asked by Obsessed Canada to review two makeup products from The Balm-which is a complete makeup, skincare, hair care and nail polish line.   The Balm has a “beauty in five minutes” philosophy which marries well with the busy modern day woman.  The two products I got to sample are the Mary-Lou Manizer aka ‘The Luminizer’ and the Betty-Lou Manizer aka ‘The Bronzing Bandit’. The packaging for both products is super cute, complete with retro-looking cartoon characters.  Each compact has 8.5g of product and has a handy mirror inside. Lets first discuss the Mary-Lou.  If…

‘Halloween’ A Makeup Artist’s favorite time of year!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Halloween for a Makeup Artist is bigger than Thanksgiving and Christmas combined.  I start thinking about my Halloween costume as soon as summer ends, sometimes even sooner 😉 Growing up, my house was the one on the street that all the trick-or-treaters wanted to go to.   The front lawn was transformed into a graveyard, a strobe light was going off blinding anyone that came near and my dad would jump out and scare the kids with a frightful mask on his face. Needless to say Halloween has always been a big deal for me. Whenever I start to brainstorm Halloween…

Working at Breakfast Television-Celebrity Style Steal

By | Celebrity Makeup, Uncategorized | No Comments

Today I did hair and makeup for a segment on Breakfast Television called Celebrity Style Steal.  Like any other time Ive worked at BT I had a ridiculous early call time of 4:45am-yuck!  Anyway I rolled myself out of bed and even managed to make myself look somewhat presentable-oh the power of makeup!  I got this opportunity through Fancy Face Inc which is a full service/mobile makeup and hair agency that I have been working with for the past 2 months.  There were 3 artists that needed to get 3 models and 1 host ready in about an hour.  I…
