What do you love about doing Make Up? 

Perks of being a bridal make up artist is that i get to meet some amazing clients, and even more rewarding is that I am able to help my brides feel and look their most beautiful self on the most important day of their life . To me each client is unique and to be a part of their special day is extraordinary.

The biggest challenge of my career for me has been juggling between the pressure of my job and the demands of my young family …. with a supportive husband and of course my passion and dedication for the industry i am now able to equally enjoy and embrace both my career and my beloved family.

3 pieces of advice for brides before and on their wedding day. 

* Leading to the wedding focus on the most important elements of your look, such as beautifully healthy natural-looking skin, softly groomed brows and feathery lashes. If you get these basic factors right the rest of your make-up will fall into place beautifully on the day.

*Schedule your trial at least 5 weeks before the wedding it’s an extra cost but a worthy one.

* Your wedding day isn’t the time to experiment with red lipstick or smoky eyes for the first time. Choose tones that you feel comfortable with and make up style that mostly represent YOU. I always tell my brides that my goal is for them to look like themselves, just exquisitely polished, glam and a better version of them self . I would hate for a bride to look at her pictures a few years from now and not recognize themselves. 

What are you favourite products? 

A great primer and setting spray is an absolute must have to ensure longevity and a polished finish of the make up application.

What three makeup items no woman should leave home without?

A kickass lipstick , confidence and an infectious smile
