My makeup journey began in 2005 when I attended the Fashion Arts program at Humber College.
During the program my passion for makeup application would be realized as I completed the cosmetics course and subsequently began working as a seasonal makeup artist with MAC Cosmetics.
After a short while working in the beauty industry I knew that makeup was going to be an integral part of my life. Once I had graduated from the Fashion Arts program I knew it was time to focus my time and effort towards makeup so I attended a private school in Woodbridge, Ontario by the name of Blush Cosmetics. I have been a certified makeup artist since 2008 and love it now more than ever.
My work experience includes MAC Cosmetics, Benefit Cosmetics, Inglot Cosmetics, Donato’s Salon and Spa, Kiehl’s Since 1851 and as an independent freelance makeup artist for the past 10 years.
I recently expanded my beauty service arsenal by completing my lash extension certification in March of 2017 and have been offering classic lash extensions ever since.
Of all my work experience within the beauty industry, my greatest passion was educating women on how to wear makeup to enhance their natural beauty. I believe that women should feel confident and empowered. My goal is to make the everyday woman look and feel their very best by creating a look that is natural and beautiful. I believe makeup should enhance the beauty that is, as opposed to cover it up.
Women should not be afraid to wear makeup based on how others do, but learn that a proper application can make you feel good about yourself when you look in the mirror every day. Every woman deserves to look and feel their very best, no matter what!
I specialize in makeup application for weddings, photoshoots, proms, special events and even lessons.

Truly felt like star of my wedding!
I had done trials with other makeup artists, but just wasn’t happy with the final look and felt discouraged. After being introduced to Michelle I was in love! She nailed the look during the trial and managed to create the exact makeup look I was hoping for! I couldn’t have been happier.Sent on 07/09/2019
I highly recommend Michelle for not only wedding day makeup, but any special event where you want that extra touch.

A beautiful experience!
Michelle was recommended to me by many and after having my wedding makeup trial with her I told her things I liked and didn’t like. She listened to all of that and on the day of my wedding she made those changes and was never offended. I couldn’t be happier with my make up!! Thanks so much Michelle :)Sent on 01/09/2019

A must hire!
Michelle was amazing to work with. She did my makeup for another wedding I was in and I knew I had to hire her for my own wedding. She helped me find the perfect combination of products to make me look like the best version of myself. I wanted natural makeup with bigger eyes and it looked perfect! We had a lot of people who needed makeup and her team worked efficiently to make us all look flawless. Hiring Michelle was the best thing I did!Sent on 31/08/2019

Amazing Experience - highly recommend
My experience with Michelle was so wonderful, it went far beyond any expectation I had for my wedding make-up. I do not wear much make-up on a regular basis, and I was torn between wanting to look great for my photos, but being concerned about not looking like myself on my wedding day. Michelle took my concerns very seriously and was able to find the perfect balance so that my photos were amazing, and I felt like the most perfect version of myself. She was kind, considerate and professional - my bridal party looked gorgeous, and my bridesmaids and family were all thrilled with their experience as well. I have used Michelle's services repeatedly since, and would recommend her to anyone looking for a professional who truly cares about her clients, who consistently goes beyond expectations to provide an amazing result.Sent on 10/09/2019
