Hello beautiful! Since this is my first post, I wanted to introduce myself and my love of the cosmetics industry. I am a twenty something makeup enthusiast from Vancouver, BC. My passion for makeup has increased over the years as I have seen how much power this artistry can have over an individual.
I recently had an interview with Dawn, from makeupclasses.com, and she asked me “where do you gain your inspiration from?”. This is a funny question to me, I just answered honestly. I find that some days, you wake up feeling strong and fierce. Those are the days you have your “war liner” on and big bold in your face red lip. Other days, you may be feeling mellow or calm, and that will be a day where you can express this with nude colours. Or if you are like me, you find inspiration in everything and anything. Even horror movies.
I grew up watching horror movies with my sister and I always found they were the movies with the most adventurous makeup and that is something I have held dear to my heart along my journey. My first cosmetic experience was when I was 11 years old. I went and got my makeup done at MAC cosmetics. MAC was a whole new world, full of colour and adventurous makeup looks. I fell head over heels for the brand and took home my first makeup tools. From then on, it has been my dream to work at MAC.
Finally, in 2019 I conquered my dream and get to share my passion with others that were in the same shoes as me. This has been such a special experience for me. I have learned so much about skin, makeup products and technical skill. I cannot wait to share this all with you.

Let’s dive into this beautiful world together!
