Behind the Scenes did such an amazing job in creating this cute video for bride lili and groom dave. i had such a great time doing lili’s makeup using the shu uemura sunset gold palette and shu pink lipsticks. the bridesmaids were in royal blue, so using the colour atelier eyeshadows in blue hues, i created soft, smokey blue eyes for them. it was a fun morning!

for a photo shoot with photographer teddy chau, i was creating a makeup look using the shu uemura wkw holiday collection burning in water palette on model effie tsorovas. the colours are so vibrant and are so well captured in photos. here is a behind-the-scenes shot / sneak peak at the look:

the collection is so beautiful; from the packaging, to the colours.

drowning in flame palette. so lovely for creating soft, natural, romantic looks.

the perfect accent to a holiday look. jeweled love partial lashes. a must-try!

burning in water palette. for eyes that make a statement.

the beautiful premium lashes – dance in glitter.

such pretty nail polishes! i shall do a post on these soon. i’m wearing these colours as we speak.

i wanted to create a wearable look using the burning in water palette. sometimes we’re afraid to use bold colours, but give icy eyes a try this winter season:

warm up the edges with brown eyeshadow to make the look very wearable. i’m also using the shu uemura ultimate natural mascara which keeps lashes curled. for my brows, hard formula in seal brown for brows that stay put.

rather than a bold red (i used the wkw rouge luster on effie), try the wkw  pink flush for a softer look:

it’s an extremely moisturizing lipstick. i’m absolutely in love with this lipstick.

it was definitely a whirlwind weekend for me! i had a wedding booking saturday morning then off i was to the airport to head to montreal to meet the shu uemura team. it was a fully packed day of filming on sunday at the st-hubert studio in montreal.

i arrived on set and was greeted by the awesome swoo team who did an amazing job filming the live shu uemura beauty makeup art competition in toronto. i was them prepped by isabelle randez and jasmine bouchard from l’oréal for shu uemura. they did an amazing job organizing the entire process, from preparing script to organizing products to launch. next, the mic was on and we were ready to role.

it was such a great experience doing all the how-to videos for the cool products that will soon be released! the holiday and spring collections offer some super unique items; i can’t wait until they come out!

the videos will be released very soon! in a couple of weeks i believe. be sure to visit to see the new collections that are soon to be featured and the shu uemura fan page on facebook where my videos will be posted! so excited!

i had a weekend filled with makeup, great people and i got to speak french (those who know me know how obsessed i am with french)! what more could i ask for?
