The make-up industry is one which certainly isn't lacking talented workers. Passion flares in the eyes of the artists who get a chance to be paid to put colours to their brushes and enhance beauty or create art on a facial canvas. Although artists usually appreciate the recognition of their art and the exposure it brings to their creations, they are not necessarily at ease in front of a camera. We needed to find a professional make-up artist who could do both. Over and above, our artist had to be able to communicate in Canada's two official languages. And then we met Ariel.
Born and raised in Montreal, Ariel first got into makeup when she first started learning to draw. "I used to give my Barbies makeovers' in marker: red lips, green eyeshadow", she tells us. " It went on to elementary school were I use to be one of the only girls sporting pink lip gloss and sparkles; and then in high school I used to give my friends makeovers, or help them with their make-up if they were going on a date. I really love making people feel beautiful and confident." It wasn't long before we saw a special sparkle in her eyes when we started discussing make-up and playing with products. Then we turned on the camera, and she glowed.
Ariel seriously got involved in make-up and decided to make a career out of it after high school when she enrolled at Edith Serei Academy, studying fashion, photography and special effects makeup.
With no further ado, we are proud to introduce Ariel, our professional make-up artist who will be providing tips for women of all ages.
