November Rewind: Remark Magazine and IMATS Toronto 2013

Time really does fly by when you’re having fun! Where has November gone?? It’s hard to believe that Christmas is about 1 month away – eek!

November has been a crazy month of work and fun so here’s a quick recap of what I’ve been up to.

IMATS Toronto 2013 Highlights:

580619_500879480019735_509132068_nDid you get “Minked”? If you didn’t, you definitely missed out! Our booth was crazy busy both days. I don’t even know how many lashes I applied, but I probably can apply fake lashes with my eyes closed now. It was such a great experience working with the lovely Minked Lashes team and working with these absolutely beautifully hand-crafted, 100% mink and horse hair lashes (which by the way are 100% cruelty free).  Oh did I mention that my dear friend and talented artist, Arabella Trasca, is also the Creative Director? Pretty amazing! Be sure to check out their site now which is now live. You will want to snatch up all of them. For the quality and styles, Minked Lashes is the most affordable brand I’ve seen. The most expensive pairs are $26! I seriously am in love with all the styles.

Thank you to all my special peeps who came and got “minked” and those that stopped just to say hi! You know who you are!! IMATS is like a reunion for all us artists. I love you guys and appreciate all your support!! I also enjoyed meeting new friends and can’t wait to do it all over again next year.

Eve Pearl!!!

Eve Pearl!!!

Hi. That’s me with 5 time Emmy award-winning makeup artist, Eve Pearl. This moment was obviously the biggest highlight of the weekend for me. Meeting her and this picture could not have been possible without Eve’s Pearlette and fabulous makeup artist, Nicole Lemos Makeup Junkie! I actually met Nicole at The Shopping Channel days before IMATS. I was super bummed I wouldn’t get to meet her and made it my mission to meet her at IMATS. Mission accomplished! Eve is one of the most gracious, humble, and utterly kind celebrity makeup artists I have ever met! If you’re a fan (and why wouldn’t you be??), Eve will be back at The Shopping Channel with her team and amazing products on January 31st in the new year!

Finally get to share a shoot I did during the summer. The photog duo, Jane & Jane, always have such amazing vision when creating their edgy editorials. I really love the effects they did for this series which is featured on 1968 Magazine’s website! The styling was very masculine inspired with an edgy, feminine twist. I did a deep side part low pony with lots of texture. For the makeup, the skin was kept bare with nude eyes and lips, contouring and a very strong brow.

Oh hi there! It’s been a while…A Recap

Wow, it’s been ages since I’ve updated my blog! It’s been a crazy few months with work and family life, but I’m not complaining. All I can say is I’m thankful for good clients, great friends and a healthy family.

Besides being busy with weddings, I’ve had some published work and helped organize another workshop with Blur Makeup Room (more on this fabulous pro store later) for celebrity makeup artist and someone I consider a mentor, Lucky Bromhead. Here’s a little recap!

Makeup: Lucky Bromhead, Photographer: Wade Hudson

Makeup: Lucky Bromhead, Photographer: Wade Hudson

The macro beauty masterclass with Lucky was one not to be missed. We learned some really valuable tips and techniques on how to perfect the skin for extremely close photography. So, it turns out she’s pretty ah-MAZING with a brush. Lucky is pretty entertaining and hilarious to boot, but you will be in awe of her beautiful creations.

One thing that really stood out for me is something I’ve always tried to practice when doing beauty work, but seeing her technique and the end results really stuck with me. Skin should look like skin. She recommended using the yaby Liquid Foundations or M.A.C.’s Face & Body. Lucky also likes to use a sponge much like the Beauty Blender to apply foundation.

She finds with a brush you can see streaks left on the skin in macro photography. Lucky is also big on highlighters like the ones from Face Atelier. These silicone-base liquids are great for mixing in foundations. Another very important point is that working with a really good model is key. Tia was amazing because she knew there were certain moments she couldn’t move her mouth or close her eyes. If you’re doing something that is lip focused choose someone with good lips and so forth. Oh and don’t be surprised if you have to break out some Nair to get peach fuzz under control! Only in the name of beauty and the money shot.

Wade Hudson, a highly sought after photographer and the one who shot Lucky’s macro work was also at the class to give some advice on the industry and what he looks for in a makeup artist. In the above photo, he is explaining his retouching process. He also believes that skin should look like skin. His pet peeve with some photographers is when the pores are blurred out completely using Gaussian Blur. An amazing makeup artist makes his job easier, but the skin still needs some perfecting in Photoshop. He showed us how he takes out imperfections without completely blurring out the skin.

The workshop was hosted by Toronto’s newest pro artist store, Blur Makeup Room! It is home to some of my all-time favourite brands like yaby (Liz Yu, owner of Blur and creator of yaby cosmetics), Face Atelier, bdellium tools, Embryolisse, Glamcor, Kim Greene, and much more. If you’re a working artist in the industry, you get a 20% artist discount. Sweet right? This store is a godsend for artists everywhere, but might be the death of my bank account. I can’t help but pick something up every time I visit! I will have to share my hauls in another post. And if you’re not in Toronto you can pick up some kit essentials by visiting the online store!

If you’ve missed this workshop, don’t worry. Blur plans to do workshops on a regular basis. Yay! So get your learn on because one can never stop learning. 😉

On to the next! One thing about doing published work is that you can’t share it until it gets – PUBLISHED. I have a lot more that will be published in the next few months but here is the latest. I am so happy I got to work with these two talented twins – yes twins – of Jane & Jane who both just happen to love photography. Be on the look out for these two ladies – they are going to take the fashion world by storm!
