Hi!

I'm Amy, a makeup artist located in Toronto, Canada.

These are my random thoughts, inspirations and work.

Fueled by caffeine and glitter.

Anonymous: Can I use my lip primer for my eye lid?

It will help shadows appear more vibrant…but won’t increase wear longevity.

Anonymous: What ks the difference between using eye primer and just using concealer as eye primer?

Eye primers are designed specifically for the thin and super mobile eye area! You can absolutely use concealer as an eye primer…it will brighten and give a nice shadow base. However, if you deal with creasing, a concealer won’t help remedy that and can ever make creasing on the lid worse. I absolutely love the Urban Decay Primer Potion in either Eden or Caffeine. It brightens and evens skin tone like a concealer but will extend the wear of your shadow and keep it smudge and crease free for 24 + hours!

Just rediscovered this gorgeous candid shot of Natasha and Elise while we were on set for the Carmilla movie poster shoot. Always a great time working with these lovely ladies and tailoring makeup and hair looks to their unique styles.
