Personal Shopping (Starting at $150/1 Hour)

Fun fact: While I’ve always been amazed by the transformative and confidence building power of makeup, I originally got into this business because I could not stop shopping and needed an outlet to use my product! Suffice to say, my shopping prowess is impeccable after years of practice. Having been in the makeup business for 12 years, I am incredibly knowledgeable and selective with makeup products. Let me shop with you so that you can benefit from my expertise, and avoid pushy salespeople who may not always have your best interest at heart. We’ll meet at the Eaton Centre (Sephora & MAC), Bay and Bloor (Sephora & Holt Renfrew), Fairview Mall (Sephora & MAC) or a place of your choosing (travel fees may apply) and select the best products for you, while having a ton of fun - because that’s what makeup should be!
