I met Alis at her home in Burnaby. She became friends with Iulia through work. Iulia and her were going to do a style shoot and invited me to do makeup. I did a darker, more intense eye and lip, as Iulia was colouring Alis' hair pink for the shoot. (Hair dye was a pink powder by Anastasia Beverly Hills). Alis' 3 year old niece was home and talked to us quite a bit about her new cat, Midnight. I wasn't able to go to the shoot, as I had a prior commitment. However, upon seeing the results, I was so glad I said yes! Lips are NARS (mexican rose) and Laura Mercier eye shadow (Coffee). Skin is DIOR of course! I'll admit to being tempted to getting pink hair...but I always wimp out. It suits Alis well!

Sneak peek at Jen's makeup for her wedding date. I suggested to her that for since her engagement photoshoot was coming up, we could do her trial on that day. She was up for it. even though an early morning for the both of us, I believe we pulled it off. I'll be super happy (aren't I always!) when I can post a photo of both Jen and her fiancé David. Jen decided to make some simple changes so her wedding makeup is slightly different; change black to brown and coral cheeks and lips to pink. She's a gal with brown eyes so both will look so good on her. I did Dior Airflash foundation for her skin, Make Up For Ever on her eyes, with Stila pen in black for eyeliner. Her lips are Dior Addict, which is moisturizing!
