From Lily’s perspective, makeup is an art as much as it is a science. She is constantly researching the newest trends and the best products and techniques for long-lasting, flattering makeup. There is always something new to learn, and new products and tools to buy. Luckily, Lily finds this type of research fun! As much as Lily enjoys learning, she finds joy in teaching. When she is available, Lily offers individual and group hair and makeup lessons where she covers a multitude of topics. Don’t be shy to ask for a demonstration in the best techniques to cover problematic skin such as acne or psoriasis. No topic is off limits! She also has a class specifically for bridesmaids and busy professionals.
Lily’s commercial and bridal bookings have taken her across the globe. Through the years, her appreciation and love for different cultures blossomed and her wanderlust can no longer be tamed. When she is not working, she is playing with her cat or planning her next trip abroad.
Lily is passionate about mastering different styles of makeup. In Vancouver, the most common makeup look requested is “natural”. She also receives numerous requests for Indian/South-Asian Bridal and Asian/Korean makeup looks due to her attention to detail while executing the subtleties of each look.
On occasion, she receives celebrity-inspired requests. Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner are currently the most referenced inspirations. Lily is always happy to oblige as long as her clients are also able to recognize their own individual beauty. Lily has always carried a diverse palette in her makeup kit and worked with people of all backgrounds and skin tones. It goes without saying that Lily is LGBTQ friendly.
Lily currently accepts commercial, bridal , and special event bookings. Schedule well in advance to ensure availability.
