‘Strength’ and ‘confidence’ come before ‘beauty’. These are the three words that I solely believe in.
My passion is to encourage strength, instil confidence and help women to discover their beauty that exists both inside and out.
My love of makeup started from a very young age. From as far back as I can remember, I was always into my mother's makeup bag, jewellery box, perfume, creams and lotions, and let us not forget the high heels! I guess I was born with the "makeup gene"! I grew up reading fashion magazines. It was from those articles and photos that I started experimenting with makeup. In the early 80's, I attended a fashion school in Vancouver and took makeup lessons and modelling. These were all important elements to educate and instill self- confidence in myself. That confidence is now a gift that I am driven to share with my clients.
What sets me apart is my unique ability to see the beauty in each woman and highlight it. I am not judgemental, so my clients feel comfortable and at home in my chair. Though I do offer my services to all ages, I am unique in that I focus on mature skin because I am of that age, so I can relate to that demographic and help women feel confident when applying their makeup.
The makeup and skincare line that I use is exclusively is Beautycounter, a personal care brand that uses cleaner and safer ingredients. When formulating their products, they prohibit the use of over 1,500 harmful or questionable ingredients. They believe cleaner, better beauty begins with telling you what's in their products, and educating the consumer about the harmful chemicals found in personal care products.
With only a few lessons, I can address any concerns my clients have and guide you to discover the beauty you've always had in you. I want you to leave my studio feeling empowered, confident and beautiful! It brings me much joy and gratitude knowing that what I have taught you, could change the way you feel about yourself. Always know that I am here for you if you have questions. All of my clients are very important to me.
“I believe that all women are pretty without makeup –
but with the right makeup can be pretty powerful.”
