Do you have a passion for Makeup? Have you always wanted to become a Professional Makeup Artist? Do you aspire to learn makeup and hair techniques from the pro’s for Film and Television, Theatre, Special Effects and Airbrushing?
In just a few weeks, I will be one of the new teachers at the George Brown College’s, Yorkville School of Makeup and Esthetics here in Toronto, Ontario.
I’ve been getting a lot of emails from aspiring Makeup Artists asking me how to get started in the industry, and this is the perfect opportunity! I will be teaching a great course – Professional Makeup Artist 1 – starting in November – and if you’ve always dreamed of becoming a Makeup Artist and this sounds like something you might be interested in, please feel free to email me or call the school for more information: 416.920.4906.
However, if becoming a Professional Makeup Artist isn’t for you, but you still love the idea of makeup, we also offer non-certificate Personal Makeup Courses, which I will also be teaching starting in September. This course is perfect for anyone who’s looking to learn easy do-it-yourself makeup techniques on how to look and feel great each and everyday!

Ladies, let me introduce you to one of my favourite products on the market: Lid-Care Towelettes. It’s the most gentle, non-irritating eye makeup remover I have ever tried. I first got introduced to this product when I got Laser eye surgery a few years ago. I remember the Doctor saying that I had to use extremely gentle cleansers on my eyes for the first little while after surgery, and that’s when he gave me Lid-Care. I have been hooked ever since.
My favourite, are the ones that come already pre-moistened and individually wrapped. They are super easy to use and excellent for traveling!! You never have to worry about your product spilling in your suitcase ever again!
It’s especially great for contact lens wearers and for people who have really sensitive eyes. You can find Lid-Care over the counter at most pharmacies like Shoppers Drug Mart and Walmart, in the eye care section.
This is a definite Must Have, for everyday and/or for traveling!

On those days when you don’t feel like wearing foundation, but you still want to even out your skin tone, try using a tinted moisturizer. My favourite product on the market hands down is Laura Mercier’s Tinted Moisturizer. It has the perfect amount of lightweight buildable coverage that leaves your skin looking and feeling flawless! And, if you have sensitive or acne-prone skin, it also comes in oil-free, so it’s good for all skin types!
Also, try their NEW! Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 20. It doesn’t have as much coverage as the original, but it’s like radiance in a bottle. A great way to add a beautiful glow!
And, don’t forget to wake.up & make.up!

I love getting my nails done – it’s super relaxing! But, with my busy schedule, it’s really hard to make time to go to the spa (…considering, I’m still trying to find the time to go to the gym!)
So to get a great manicure and pedicure at home in minutes, you’re going to want to follow these two easy steps:
STEP ONE: Exfoliate and Moisturize
If you’re not too sure what exfoliating does, it removes dead skin cells that lye on the surface of your skin, and if not removed, it will leave your skin dry, rough and dull looking – so it’s super important to exfoliate before any manicure and pedicure.
Moisturizing the skin afterwards with a good lotion is a great way to lock in moisture, leaving your skin silky smooth.
I just tried OPI Manicure Pedicure Cucumber Scrub and Massage, and I absolutely fell in love! Not only did the scrub and massage leave my skin feeling like butter, it smelt amazing! With natural sugar crystals, antioxidant pineapple and soothing cucumber extract, I really felt like I brought the spa to my bathtub! And it honestly feels amazing! aaaaahhhh…
STEP TWO: Nail Polish
Before I begin any nail polish application, I always use a good base coat. My new favourite base coat on the market right now is OPI Start to Finish, it’s a base coat, top coat and nail strengthener all in one. And now it comes in a Formaldehyde-Free formula that is great for sensitive nails – like mine!! Yiippee!
Next, I apply my nail polish. I very rarely apply the same colour to both my hands and feet. I like to use darker colours (like OPI: Lunch at the Delhi) on my toes
and very light, pretty colours (like: OPI: Get Me To The Taj On Time) on my hands.
And that’s it! A spa manicure and pedicure from the comfort of your home in just minutes!
And, Ladies, don’t forget to wake.up & make.up!

Ladies, let me introduce you to the BaByliss PRO Nano Titanium 6″ Mini Flat Iron!
Not only is this the cutest and smallest flat iron I have ever seen! It also works amazing! (Who new something so small would work so great!)
The Nano Titanium is truly the size of my hand and heats up in under one minute, which is perfect for traveling and styling on the go!
And not only does it style great, it’s also perfect for straightening your bangs, because it’s small enough to reach even the shortest hair, and I love that!
But, the best part is that it sells for $28.99 at BeautyChoice.com – which is a great online retail store, selling top of the line, beauty related products at a great price! (Thanks BeautyChoice for sending me this great product!)
And Ladies, don’t forget to wake.up & make.up!
