I'm Lisa, a Freelance Certified Makeup Artist & Independent Consultant; Look Good Feel Better Canada Volunteer Cosmetic Advisor; 'Artsy Engineer'; Full-time Business & Marketing Professional; fulfilled Wife and Mom.
Chic Cheeks Makeup Artistry was born from my belief that Beauty Gives Back and aims to inspire women to illuminate the beauty within and experience the transformative power of makeup. It is a beauty and personal care consultancy offering professional cosmetic application, education, PRO tips and techniques.
I have always been a budding beauty enthusiast and makeup aficionado inspired by stage makeup as a competitive dancer in my early childhood. In my teens, after completing a beauty & image course with a talent agency, I freelanced making-up friends and family for events and weddings. After graduating with a Bachelors of Electrical Engineering and Management from McMaster University, I pursued a career as a business and marketing professional full-time. During that time I focused my makeup artistry on my beloved mother, who lost her 15 year battle against early on-set (age 50) Alzheimer’s in 2017, treating her to routine makeup makeovers with the enthusiastic assistance of my two kids -- who loved maintaining her look of grace and poise as she was so well known for.
Giving back to my mom in this way inspirited me to complete a Makeup Certification course from the Canadian Beauty College, launch this beauty consultancy and volunteer as a cosmetic advisor for Look Good Feel Better lgfb.ca. The chairtiable LGFB program benefits women like my beloved grandmother, a two time breast cancer survivor, feel more like themselves again and manage the skin related effects of cancer treatment. Donating my makeup artist (MUA) expertise and time at Princess Margaret Hospital every month, for the free two hour workshop taking cancer patients through the programs signature steps, is truly an uplifting opportunity.
I welcome you to my world of #ChicCheeksAlways to illuminate the beauty within an experience the transformative power of makeup!
