During the coldest of snowstorms last winter, it made perfect sense to have a bikini shoot in a sauna.

In a lovely mansion north just of Toronto, model Jennifer Steele posed in Spring/Summer 2011 swimwear trends, including a bikini by German-Canadian swimwear designer Katharine Demarchelier paired with a vibrant scarf by Italian fashion powerhouse Missoni.

Another look was pulled together by color accents, including a string bikini by New York based designer Mara Hoffman for RAC. The hot pink strings of the patterned bikini paired with a matching shade of neon toe polish demanded that makeup take a backseat to the loud pops of pink.

By keeping the smoky eye void of harsh lines and dark brows, making lip color bright but sheer and using a highlighter with a dewy finish, the makeup helped keep things subtly glamorous.

Sarah Lian has taken Hong Kong, Malaysia, and Singapore by storm. This Sexy siren has grace the pages of FHM and Flare Magazine.

I shot with Sarah years ago, when she still lived in Canada. She is visiting Toronto for a short period of time, so we put together a daring photo shoot!

Sexy, Steamy, and in a dirty Motel Room?  I absolutely love how the photos turned out!

Who knew, that big wild hair and black kohl liner can make such a difference?

I love the excitement and chaos of fashion shows. For FW10 Fashion Week, I was key hair and makeup artist for the Penicullus Bellum Launch, held on March 24th at Thrush Holmes Empire.

My team and I created a pale, but hard look to pair with the edgy tailoring of the designers.

It was fun to get to do creative makeup, using white powder makeup for clowns, and even white hairspray!

I could not have done it without my fabulous team. Thank you so much again Candace French and Krista Samek.

Every year Victoria’s Secret has their $10 million+ Fashion Show around the Holiday Season. How can you miss out on all the glamourous Hollywood A-Listers in the front row and the BLINGing bras? It’s broadcasted in over 90 countries, and I too, sat in front of the TV to see the supermodels strut down the runway.

I got to see a familiar face in the bunch, Behati!

I had the priviledge to work with Super Model Coco¬†Rocha and Behati Prinsloo¬†for Holt Renfrew‘s first ever video vignette. I assisted the amazing celebrity makeup artist,¬†Jackie Shawn, on this amazing project. This video was shot by Geoff Barrenger at the Gladstone hotel in Toronto. There was not much makeup assisting needed but I did get to do their manicures and powder their noses ūüôā

They filmed Coco and Behati running around the Gladstone with vintage suitcases, playing dress up and even had a pillow fight!

Here is the Final Edit of the Video!

Behind the scenes, there were 8 full rolling racks of couture,¬†Valentino,¬†Dior,¬†Gucci,¬†Alexander¬†Wang, YSL, Furs, etc…¬†you¬†name¬†it…Tables¬†of jewelry,¬†watches, makeup, giant perfume¬†bottles! Endless tables of bags, clutches and row on rows of¬†sky-high boots and crazy shoes.¬†Everything was estimated to be over half a million dollars!¬†The supermodels got to choose whatever they wanted to wear, have fun, and run around… just girls being girls.

Just a small part of the wardrobe I managed to get a few pictures of…

It’s finally up! I have been waiting so long for this editorial. Well, it’s now online and just in time for Christmas!

This is my first editorial feature for TORO Magazine, I got to do the Hair Styling, the Makeup, and even the Wardrobe! With the help of my talented assistant Candace French, of course.

We shot the lovely Priscilla Caripan at the beautiful Gladstone Hotel in the Queen West Neighbourhood.

I got to work with my favorite Glamour Photographer in Toronto, Eikona Photography.

Our inspiration for this lingerie guide, was all things Holiday, we wanted to bring the cozy feeling of staying indoors while there was a snow storm just outside the windows.
