Valentines Day Makeup Ideas

romantic

Its February 1st and we all know what  day comes in 2 weeks <3 Valentines Day the Day of love.   Whether you are going on a date with your significant other or a girls night with your friends, we all know dress to impress because you never know when you will meet that special someone ;).  You can either rock a classic smokey eye with a nude lip, winged eye with red lip or a funky bright pink lip.  The ideas are absolutely endless.! Here are a few of my favourite makeup items to create that all time Valentines Day look! :)

 

Two Faced Bon Bon Eye Shadow Palette~ <3 ( It even smells like chocolate!)

Meagan and Justins Summer 2015 Wedding

Meagan+JustinEngagement0002

I had the pleasure of meeting Meagan a few years ago for her sister Krystals wedding in Abbotsford.  Meagan had remembered me and booked me for her Summer 2015 Wedding. Meagan is your fun, bubbly, funny and very professional business owner.  Did I mentioned she is the Principle Owner of Sea to Sky Weddings and Events ? We love connecting with other wedding vendors in the City so this was perfect for everyone.  Meagan had chosen to do her makeup trial on the same day as her engagement shoot with Fortune Hill Photography and we couldn’t be more happier with the pictures.  Vanessa captured Meagan and Justin in Stanley Park and the pictures looked amazing.  On the morning of the wedding we got Meagan and her Bridal party makeup ready at the Riverrock while her ceremony and reception ended up being at the Hycroft Mansion ( Gorgeous Venue ).  Here are a few sneak peeks of their wedding and we look forward to working with Sea to Sky Weddings and Events in the next Wedding Season!

Jen and Ians Sea to Sky Wedding

JennBride5

Weddings come in all different themes and styles, some like it low key, some like it traditional with a classic setting. Some like it outdoors with the beautiful scenery of British Columbia.  We (Myself, Cathy and Serina) had the pleasure of traveling along the Sea to Sky highway to style Jen and her Bridesmaids for their outdoor Wedding  a few months ago.  The drive was early but boy was it beautiful.  Jen and Ian had their ceremony on top the Sea to Sky Gondola Look out.  Their guests rode the Gondola up and enjoyed the spectacular view.  Jen and Ian hired Michael Stanton of Stantons Photography to takes these breath taking pictures of the wedding day.  It was definitely a day to remember!.  We wish them both all the happiness in the world =)JenBride2

How to hide the Thanksgiving/Holiday pounds with Contouring

contour

We all get those days, weeks and for me months!.  Once Fall/Winter  comes around we are bundled up in our jackets trying to hide our Turkey Dinners  and our delicous Holiday Treats.  One of the must haves in my makeup bag is contour products to make it look like I did not actually put on the “Holiday 10lbs” haha.  Here are my top 3  contour products I’m liking for this Holiday Season.

 

kevynKevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder. I have used this product for years and its once of the best.  It blends ever so smoothly and goes on like a dream.  It love how the colour is not to warm so the ” contour” shadow you are making doesn’t look “orange ” or ” blotchy”.  Use with a sculpting brush and a little goes a long way :)

 

rcma

 

RCMA.  A professional brand that is Vegan ( woohoo) with amazing products for the professional world.  I have a few of the RCMA cream foundations and I am so happy I tried RCMA.  With their products they are reasonably price and do its job plus more.  When I found out about this Shading wheel I was amazed as its a All in One  product for  just about every skin tone.  No need to buy different products when you can mix your own personal contour! =)

 

mufe

Makeup Forever. One of the all time favourite Brands.  I love all their products because they are pigmented, durable and best of all easy to access ( Thank you Sephora!)  The Makeup Forever Sculpting Powder is 2 in 1 Highlight and Contour.  It comes in 4 shades ( I love shade # 2).  Use with the Makeup Forever Duo Blush/Contour Brush and Voila! Contour for Days =).

Anna and Teejays Garden Wedding

Last month I had the honour of styling Anna for her intimate wedding in Queens Park in New Westminister.  Anna and I always had so much fun during our time together.  We had custom blended hair extensions for her as she wanted to look like a major bombshell for her big day.  I love it when brides requests smokey eyes, big hair and lots of lashes. We also used custom blended lashes on her from Sasha Lashes (double stacked to be exact).  Anna looked absolutely stunning on her big day and we were so happy to be a part of it.   Katie Lauren Photography did such an amazing job with her photos and we can’t wait to see these ladies in the near future.  Congrats to Anna and Teejay and we wish them both all the happiness in the world

Last month we were very lucky to be the Beauty Team  of Elise and Alexs Wedding.  It was a wedding held at  Granville Island ( very unique and intimate!).  We got the the ladies ready at the Granville Island Hotel bright and hotel in the morning while Geoff Lister took some behind the scenes shots.  Elise was one of the Dream Brides, super organized and oh-so- down to earth.  Not only is she super gorgeous on the outside she is has a heart of Gold.  Elise and I had seen each other 2 times prior the wedding for her hair and makeup trials and we always shared great laughs, on the day of her wedding she was so calm and and super excited.  We got all the ladies ready in 3.5 hours and they all looked absolutely stunning.  The makeup and hair were different amongst each other but still some what uniformed.   Thank you for having us be a part of your big day and we wish you and Alex a life time of happiness and joy <3 =)

An East meets West Summer Wedding =)


maytim2

A few weeks ago we had the pleasure of getting Mayura ready for her wedding.  It was a East meets West kind of wedding.  Mayura had the traditional East Indian Sari, glamourous traditional East Indian Makeup with lashes and a red lip.  She  looked absolutely glowing from head to toe.  Her wedding was at Hart House in Burnaby ( very intimate and I will say from past experience the food at Hart House is incredible).  The wedding itself was not “big” according to East Indian Weddings, Mayura and her husband wanted to share their special moment with family and close friends.  We had the honour of doing Mayura, her mom and her aunts makeup on the day and they were all so wonderful.  We wish Mayura and her husband Tim a lifetime full of happiness!

These pictures were taken by the talented Katryna Kwok from ” Sweet Inspirations Photography“.  We look forward to working with Katryna again soon!

Leo Awards 2015

Its that time again for the Leo Awards =). This year the Leo Awards were held during a 3 day event span.   I had the honour of doing Sabrinas makeup for the Leo Awards for 2 dates.  We have worked together before for the past few years and its always a blast catching up.  Sabrina is the  writer for Westender Vancouvers column Reel People.  She quite possibly has one of the coolest jobs, interviewing actors, actress, crew that work on local productions =).  I love how she has such a passion for the Arts.

For her makeup we did a feline flick with a pair of lashes and she rocked her signature “red lip”.  She definitely rocked it at the Leos this year!.  Thank you so much for having us doll you up Sabrina and we look forward to seeing you again.  Lastly Congratulations to all the Winners and Nominees!
