Throw Back Thursday


By Throw Back Thursday 2 Comments

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…

I travel to Saskatchewan regularly for both work and to visit my husband’s side of the family.  I was there last year for 3 weeks of photoshoots.  I found out that the Juno Awards were going to be in Regina while I was there and I knew I had to be part of it.  I ended up working with MAC Cosmetics backstage dolling up some big names in Canadian music.  For the gala dinner I did makeup for a young country star Kira Isabella. For the actual show I did makeup for rapper Madchild from Swollen Members, the members of Dragonette and Marianas…

By Celebrity Makeup, Throw Back Thursday 3 Comments

Over two years ago there was a buzz in the Canadian hair and makeup industry. Canada’s Best Beauty Talent was a new online show that was looking for contestants to compete for the title of Canada’s top makeup artist and top hairstylist. There were tons of video applications being loaded to YouTube and Vimeo daily and I must admit I was a addicted to watching them. It was so great to see the creativity and effort that fellow hairstylists and makeup artists went through to get noticed. I knew I had to apply to be on the show and I…

‘THROWBACK THURSDAY’ Bridal Makeup for a Blue Jay’s Bride

By Bridal, Throw Back Thursday One Comment

Last year I had the honor of glamming up a bride named Kim who just happened to be marrying former Major League Baseball player Roberto Alomar.  Although the wedding was on a Wednesday once you realize the significance of the date it all made sense.  They ended up tying the knot on 12-12-12. Any Toronto Blue Jays fans would immediately note that ’12’ was Roberto’s number.  And currently the #12 banner proudly hangs in the Rogers Centre because the Blue Jays retired that number after Roberto was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.  I met with Kim about a month before…

Wow what a week!  I just had 20 gigs in 1 week that included lots of makeup and hair for the Toronto Film Festival, a bridal editorial, glamming up a soap opera actress for various television appearances, a corporate video shoot for RBC, a wedding, an engagement shoot and a fitness photo session!  INSANE but I survived and loved every minute of it 🙂 The icing on top of this super busy/exciting week-it was my first wedding anniversary!  Yup on September 15th 2012 I married the love of my life. I have done hair and makeup for so many weddings…

‘THROW BACK THURSDAY’ Jonathan Toews and Makeup for Men-Grooming

By Celebrity Makeup, Throw Back Thursday No Comments

After all the excitement of the Stanley Cup Finals coming to a close this week I thought the perfect Throw Back Thursday would be to talk about when I worked with Chicago Blackhawks’ Captain Jonathan Toews back in 2011. The year before was huge for Jonathan having won not only the Stanley Cup as one of the youngest Captains in the NHL but he also brought home an Olympic Gold medal for Team Canada-not too shabby for a 23 year old! I had the honour of working with him for a series of photo shoots and videos for The Canadian…
