crystal skull halloween makeup


By Halloween No Comments

Are you guys ready to go on a little journey of me creating a Crystal Skull Halloween makeup?  Well buckle up…I’ve got the whole low down just for you. The Idea I’m the type of person where if I have a creative idea pop into my head, it is really hard to ignore it.  I love the surge of energy it gives me.  I was at a friend’s house playing board games and the topic of Halloween came up.  A friend asked me if I was going to do one of my annual Halloween Makeups (they don’t call me the…

Red Carpet Makeup trends from TIFF

By Celebrity Makeup 2 Comments

Well I can cross this goal off my list….last week I got to be a featured Makeup Expert on the popular talk show The Social! I talked about the hottest makeup trends seen on the red carpet at the Toronto International Film Festival. It was my first time ever having to speak and demo on live TV.  To say I was nervous would be an understatement.  I totally blacked out and barely remembered what I said, I went into total auto-pilot!  It was pretty exciting to sit down later that evening and watch the segment with my husband and kids….

Happy New Year! What a year 2017 was! Lots and lots of highlights for me and I am beyond grateful for being able to do what I love.

Floral crowns aren’t just for flowers girls anymore.  I have seen a huge trend with Bridal where the bride and even the bridal party all sport gorgeous headpieces adorned with perfectly bloomed flowers! Jessica Simpson ran with this trend for her little sister’s Ashlee‘s bridal shower.  Everyone in attendance made bohemian flower crowns to wear at the festivities. Here is a shot from a Bridal Editorial I worked on which was featured in Weddingstar Magazine. The model wore a bright coloured floral crown with ribbon details.  It made a statement without overpowering the whole look.  I really liked the deep…

I haven’t done too many food commercials before but for some reason I just did a whole whack of them last month.   One was for Maple Leaf Prime Naturally Chicken Wings. It was an online promo to be released just before the Superbowl.  We all know how much saucy wings and football go together! This gig was an easy one.  It was just one guy so only a wee bit of grooming was required (you can learn all about Male Grooming from a previous post of mine found here——->Grooming).  The only curve ball thrown at me was the actor…

Do you remember that super hot day in August this year?  Well I do and I felt like I won the jackpot that day because I was shooting a commercial in an indoor skating rink.  I was even sporting a toque while the mercury rose past 40 degrees outside! The commercial was for the Scotiabank Hockey Club and it featured their ambassador, NHLer and Montreal Canadian‘s Assistant Captain PK Subban. There was a drone on set to capture a bird’s eye view of PK playing hockey with a bunch of lucky kids.  Here are some behind the scene shots I took…
