We are so excited to welcome back to YYC the gorgeous, blonde beauty, Miss Kelsey! Originally from Kelowna, Kelsey has always been a creative soul. When she was younger, she was unsure of what the future would hold for her as an artist and if that was something she could pursue as a career. But once she got into makeup, she realized she was able to be extremely creative with this form of medium, and her love and passion for being a makeup artist blossomed from there. She absolutely loves making people feel great about themselves and being able to show them ways makeup will help them feel confident in enhancing their own beauty.

Kelsey graduated from Blanche MacDonald in 2006, had the opportunity to work at MAC Cosmetics for almost 10 years & has been freelancing for 13 years. Her favorite thing about doing makeup is that she helps her clients feel amazing, beautiful and fierce about themselves. She absolutely loves makeup and any chance she can get to play she is up for it!

In her spare time, Kelsey loves to be outside (weather permitting!) She enjoys hiking, snowshoeing, bike rides and anything on the water or a beach. She is a HUGE concert fanatic (especially if it is country!), so you can definitely find her at most concerts or festivals that comes through town or around the area!

Kelsey has had the honor of being a bridesmaid 9 times (always a bridesmaid, never a bride?!), so we figure between her experience in that role and all the wedding parties she has glammed up as an artist, she is a wealth of knowledge for all things wedding!

We hope you have a chance to see her incredible work and to have the opportunity to work Kelsey. She is once of the sweetest souls, has the most contagious laugh and will definitely make you feel your most beautiful self with her makeup applications!

Cozy Couples Session: The Open Trunk Workshop January 13, 2019

When community comes together, beautiful things are made! We had the opportunity to be a part of the design team for this intimate, cozy couples photo workshop that brought in a beautiful handful of local photographers, giving them the opportunity to shoot an intimate, in-home styled shoot with a real life couple. The setting was cozy, the mood so chill & the photos captured were so true and authentic. As we have said in the past, it is so incredible to be apart of these events- connecting with other creatives and seeing the perspective of the day through so many eyes is so incredible.

Take a peek below at the wonderful design team, as well as some beautiful photos captured from the workshop!
