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.

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.

This spectacular fashion show was put together by the chic and stylish duo Candice & Alison, the best in Luxury Event Planning.

Brides, if you are looking for someone for your wedding give Candice & Alison a call before they are all booked up for 2011!

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!
