Walk to the Edge Fashion Show | | Vancouver Makeup Artist

February 1, 2010

I was contacted by one of my mentors Hedy-Marie (a well known name in the south asian bridal hair & makeup world) to work alongside her for the Walk to the Edge Fashion Show. The show was put on by Virsa & Asian Woman Magazine. The environment was vibrant, lively and executed to perfection. With top designers from east and west fashion worlds. The models were gorgeous, the makeup was fantasy inspired, and the hair was Big! Backstage was a lot of fun and what an honor working with Hedy-Marie, Ranjit Heer (fellow makeup artist, and the hair artist for the show), the beautiful models, and Harj Pasaner the Photographer!

Dress Shopping || Vancouver Makeup Artist

January 31, 2010

Every-time, I do hair & makeup for a wedding, I always catch myself falling in-love with the Brides Dress.  Over the years, I have seen everything, from a simple classic style to a complex over the top look.  I asked my maid of honor, a fashionista, working for Valentino in Milan for her expertise!  When she came down for a visit in the beginning of January we started brainstorming ideas, to customize my look.  I love the simplicity of traditional dresses, the vibrant colors of south asian outfits, unique embroidery, all mixed in with my own style.  We spent two days, going through all the stores in Vancouver & Surrey.  Needless to say we were sick of shopping, I had no success, and I am still in the hopes of finding my perfect wedding outfit.

In six months, I will experience what I have been watching my brides go through for years! I will be marrying the man of my dreams.  I am ecstatic for all the festivities, traditions, good friends, family & memories!  Here is a peak at my ‘surprise’ proposal!
If you are a soon to be bride, I would love to give my input in any direction you maybe going.  Since I have been working in the industry for five years now, I can also offer my guidance and suggestions with vendors.  I will write my experiences with each, I have chosen.  Keep posted to hear more about my journey to our ‘big fat indian wedding’.

Hope for Haiti || Victoria Makeup Artist

January 31, 2010

The Hope for Haiti Fundraiser was a great success!  It was a long day, but definitely worth it!  Being the exclusive makeup artist for the event, I had tons of beautiful models to work on!  The makeup was bold and bright, hair was big and funky.  Everyone involved did an amazing job!  Including Jessica Schafer the organizer/ host, Jesse Edmonds & Bryn Thomas photographers, Arlana and Avril the hairstylists & all the beautiful models!  It was a pleasure working with everyone and an honor to help raise $7000 for Haiti.  Stay tuned for pictures.
