Sometimes my favourite makeup looks are the ones that don’t even look like makeup was a big part of the morning routine, but there she is: with luminous fresh skin, glowing in all the right places (because when it glows in wrong places we call it greasy), eyes are defined and stand out, brows are polished, there is a flush of youthful colour to the cheeks and lips are smooth with the perfect pink hue to them. It’s not just about what you do with makeup, but how you apply it and what products you are using that makes a big difference. And I will be talking about it, sharing the secrets and showing it all step by step at my makeup workshop #Iwokeuplikethis on June 17th at the Handmade Bride.
What you will learn at my workshop:
Makeup that complements your features, while still being effortless. How to do makeup that looks like it’s barely there but at the same time transforms you into your better version. The version that looks like you get 10 hour beauty sleep every day, drink your green smoothie everyday, do yoga twice a day, don’t have any worries or concerns and have all the time in the world to laugh with your friends. I will show you the best products to achieve this, how to apply them, the techniques, in what order, what tools to use for best results.
I’m very much into makeup that doesn’t take time. My time in the morning is usually taken up by running after my 16 month-old adorable daughter, so “efficient” is the key word in my routine. You will learn the tricks and shortcuts to achieving desirable effects.
It took me years at a beauty counter helping hundreds of women to find and perfect makeup techniques that work and I can’t wait to share them! I will demystify highlighting, contouring and bronzing and show you the easy daytime appropriate way to do it (forget that 30 minute Youtube tutorial involving 3 different shades of concealer).
You will also learn the latest summer beauty trends and how to easily incorporate them into your daily routine. I will show you how you can add just one thing to your look to make it more fresh and current.
What to expect from my workshop:
It will be a fun summer beauty event with delicious catering by Gourmet, cocktails made for sharing with friends and a pop-up shop by Louche Lily. It’s a trendy online Eco beauty boutique that carries the best natural and organic beauty products on the market. Beauty without Sacrifice is their motto and I’m such a believer in it (as you will find out if you don’t know me already)! Their products are carefully selected, maintaining the highest quality ingredients for your skin. Simply put, the products must produce RESULTS, contain healthy ingredients and be luxurious to look at, to feel and ultimately to bring home for your vanity table.
Extra bonus will be having Lyz Plant – a world renowned makeup artist who has been practicing make up artistry for 15 years and a founder and CEO of Louche Lily at the event. When not found behind a computer screen keeping up on the most savvy beauty trends for Louche Lily, you can most likely find Lyz Plant at any given Fashion Week, or in front of a possible celebrity or bride. I have to admit, I have a bit (big!) of a crush on Lyz, her talent and her mastermind. 🙂 How amazing it will be to have her there to tell us about her favourite products that she tested out herself on numerous high-mantainance clients and to recommend makeup and skincare to my guests one-on-one! I’m always searching for natural products that deliver, so I’m really looking forward to picking her brain.
The workshop will be held at The Handmade Bride boutique, which I like to visit once in awhile simply for inspiration, that’s how beautiful the space and dresses are. Meaghan, the genius behind it, hand picks independent Canadian designers with Indie spirit for boutique’s dresses and accessories (fun bow-ties and lovely floral crowns among many others). I love that they offer dress alterations not just on their own, but customers’ dresses bought elsewhere as well!
I know that by now the only thing you would like to know is where to buy the tickets to this fabulous event! Follow this LINK at Snapuptickets.com to register for the workshop and buy your tickets.
At the last makeup workshop I did women were telling me that if they knew it would be this much fun they would have brought friends. Hint, hint.
Can’t wait to see you at my summer beauty workshop! I promise you will have an amazing time! And maybe will get to be my model for one of the looks! 😉
