I got a last minute phone call from the beautiful SOPRANO Erin Cooper Gay…” Ivy! Are you free tonight? I need to look like Kate Middleton!”

I usually call Erin my Blonde Bombshell Gisele Bundchen. They look a like don’t you think?

How am I going to make her look like Catherine the Duchess of Cambridge? Well with the help of a brunnette wig, an eyebrow pencil, a fake bouquet and a tiara. I think we did a pretty good job!

It was all for fun anyways, the TSO’s “Last night of the Proms” .

Cheers! xoxo


Here are some highlights of my beautiful Brides in 2010 so far…Although wedding season is over, I still have a few more weddings this year.

Some Soon to be Brides have already booked me as their official Hair and Makeup Artist for 2011 (September ????).

Yes! we had the trial already! I guess Wedding Season comes all year around!

I had so much fun doing this shoot with Bryony and Joey! This is not your typical wedding engagement photo session near the railroad tracks or under a tree.

This couple had so much personality and personal style!

I even put in hair extensions to give Bryony a complete modern vintage look.

Joey’s suit…totally Mad Men.

All the amazing photos captured by the one and only Tara McMullen.

These photos were also featured on Brooklyn Bride and The Blue Skinny !

I must admit, I have been away from blogging for way too long. March and April has been filled with trials with my Bridal Beauty Clients for the rest of this year and 2011.

The busy wedding season is coming up! I just ordered another 100 pairs of false lashes so I am all ready and prepared for the months to come.

Here is a look at some beautiful brides that I have worked with already this year…

and yes, all the amazing photos by the talented Tara McMullen and her team. If you are planning a wedding, you better give her a shout before she is all booked up for 2011!

It is always so nerve-racking to do another makeup artist’s makeup. YIKES!

Not only is Jennifer a makeup artist herself, she’s a bride-to-be. I feel very honoured that she is considering me as the artist of her choice. It’s only going to be the most important day of her life, right?

Jennifer is also the sister of my good friend Joelle Litt… model, stylist, writer extraordinaire!  Now, I can’t let them down.

Here are Jennifer’s thoughts about me before the trial. NO PRESSURE!

These are photos from our  recent Hair & Makeup Trial. We’re going for Red Carpet hair with a touch of Vintage inspiration. We want to keep the makeup romantic, pretty, and to bring out a glow.

Wanna know if I passed? Here is Jennifer’s Wedding Blog on Wedding By Color, with honest comments from other bride-to-bes.

The part of my job I love the best, is being able to share my gifts with my friends and family. Our good friends Ronnie and Connie ,got married this year on a beautiful September day at Knox College. Despite the 3 am Hair and Makeup start time  for the ladies and the Limo being 45 minutes late, the wedding played out perfectly for the beloved couple we call CRONNIE!

Connie wore a beautiful Bird Cage veil, with an elegant champagne wedding gown. While the bridal party was all dressed in a sophisticated burgundy.

Take a look at these beautiful memories captured by Victor Lee.


Tanya is the sweetest girl ever! We recently did a Hair and Makeup Trial with her for her upcoming wedding. We were going for the classic combination of Modern Makeup and Vintage Hair. This actually was not the hair style she wanted for her wedding day. But we decide to have a little fun with her Hair and Makeup, because Tanya and Greg were actually doing their engagement photos right after the Trial.


The Engagement photos were shot by the incredibly talented Tara McMullen at the Distillery.

Here are a select few from that shoot! Very Chic!tg-121tg-111tg-2
