Frequently Asked Questions
What makeup products do you use?
This is a great question to ask any makeup artist you’re considering booking! I use only quality, professional, high definition and photographically safe cosmetic products to achieve a modern and long lasting finish.
I choose to use the brands mentioned below in my makeup kit and am constantly replenishing and investing in new products to give you the best results.
These brands suit even the most sensitive of skin. If you have any concerns with allergies relating to products please contact me to see how I can help.
The products I hand pick for my kit are highly respected in the beauty industry both by celebrity makeup artists and celebrities alike.
You may not have heard of these brands however be assured they are well known in my industry as brands that consistently out perform others used in the commercial mainstream market.
I no longer use many popular brands because they are not cruelty-free
My makeup artist kit is proudly cruelty-free and also vegan friendly!
Many brands claim to be cruelty-free but are still selling their products in mainland China which by law means they are agreeing to test their products on animals which to me totally removes their ability to call themselves a cruelty free range, right?
As much as I like some of these so called “cruelty free” brand’s products I choose to support the real cruelty free brands who refuse to sell in China.
If cruelty free products and banning animal testing is important to you please read my blog post about cruelty-free makeup brands to see how you can make better choices when purchasing products.

Do you do airbrush makeup?
No, I don’t offer airbrush makeup because I much prefer the finish, look and effect of traditional makeup application.
If you love the work in my portfolio then you’ll love traditional makeup application!
You can read more on my blog about why I choose traditional application over airbrush makeup
Will my makeup last all day?
Yes, with a few minor touch-ups professional makeup can last all day. We’ll work together to get the best wear from your makeup.
Great skin is the foundation to achieving long lasting makeup. If you have any skin concerns we’ll address them with the right skin prep and the correct products.
As a bride, you will likely have the time to work on getting your skin in it’s best shape before your wedding by using the right products and treatments in the lead up to your big day.
Have you done makeup on my skin type and skin tone before?
I’ve done makeup on pretty much every skin type, tone, age and condition in my 20+ years experience as a makeup artist.
Having worked and lived in Toronto, Canada for 7 years I worked with many ethnicities such as African American, Indian and Asian.
I treat every face as unique and have the products and know-how to help you look your best!
Should I get facials before my event?
Always keep skin treatments to a minimum in the weeks before your event.
I’d suggest focusing on starting a long term skin care routine as early as possible rather than a couple of facials close to your event.
Spend as much as your budget allows on getting your skin hydrated, smooth and clear. Specialised treatments like microdermabrasion, dermaplaning, laser, peels, etc. are great investments if you can make them.
