My brides are not just another client! I actually get excited about each of my brides on her wedding day! It's just too special occasion not to! When I saw Allie's dress and how her bridal beauty vision came together so beautifully I did tear up... #lovemybrides
.
repost #πŸ“· @annephoto Oh she glows. Allie was such a radiant bride. ❀️ @allieseph @wearefrid @sarahwalshbridal @klavaz.makeup @withlovebridal @hairjunkiesalon
.
P.S. I love that photographers' comments on the brides that I have worked with almost always include mentioning of "radiance". I'm all about that!!! #bridalbeautyexpert #radiantskin #klavazbridal .

About last week...
I went to Ottawa Wedding Awards this year looking forward to catch up with and cheer for all the talented and awesome wedding vendors and friends (#frendors) that I work with so much without actually seeing them (funny how it works in the wedding industry). Because I won last year People's Choice award as Ottawa's Makeup Artist of the year, I couldn't be nominated this year. However, I have submitted my work to be considered by a panel of judges for Platinum Awards, but I honestly wasn't expecting to win simply because I feel it's a subjective award depending on the style preferences of the judges.
.
So when my name got called out as a winner of the Platinum Award Wedding Makeup I was slightly hyperventilating going on stage πŸ™ˆπŸ™ŒπŸ™.
.
It's such an honour to be recognized TWO YEARS IN A ROW by my clients and by industry professionals for my work that I love so much!!! ❀ I'm literally obsessed with what I do and though I have said it many times, I don't get tired of saying this: THANK YOU to the amazing women in my makeup chair who inspire me to do my best work! πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™ #awardwinning #ottawaweddingawards #bridalbeautyexpert #lifeswork
.
I also wanted to give a shot out to all other winners of Ottawa Wedding Awards and my friends who I cheered for! You guys rock and elevate this industry! πŸ‘ŠπŸΌπŸ‘ŠπŸΌπŸ‘ŠπŸΌ

If somebody would have told me that I will be using so many different oils in my skincare regime I would not have believed them. I used to have super oily skin, so I avoided anything moisturizing, which was a big mistake on my part. I would try to get rid of my natural skin oil by using all kinds of drying and damaging products. And my skin freaked out more and got oilier. It was a vicious circle.
.
Once I learned how to take care of my skin properly and balance it out, I started to carefully try out some oils. Now I have quite a variety of oils for their different property. Keep an eye on my stories for a sneak peak into my current skincare and oils in particular.
.
One of my favourite brands for beautiful oil formulations is @odacite. Their Black Cumin +Cajeput Pimples serum works like a charm to stop breakouts from developing into something scary on the face and helps to heal the skin faster. It has won a few awards for a good reason! Thank you @thedetoxmarketcanada for hooking me up with this gem! #klavazbeautytips #naturalskincare #healyourskin .

Choose a highlighter that is appropriate for your skin type and age. Drier skin or one with visible texture, like bumps, flakiness or breakouts will do better with a more subtle liquid highlight that will impart a soft natural looking glow. If you use a powder highlight, especially a really shimmery one, be prepared to have your skin flaws magnified.⚑

When bride's skin is baby smooth so I go highlight crazy! #klavazbridal #skinebrightlikeadiamond #skinglow

Warm weather is finally here and with that I crave more fresh fruits and veggies! I definitely believe in seasonal eating simply because my body tells me it's a real thing. I'm switching from my comforting cold weather breakfasts like oatmeal to smoothies. I can't drink cold smoothie in the winter - it gives the chills. Same goes for salads. In the dead of the winter, it's hard to persuade me to eat a cold veggie salad, I would way rather nosh on warm root vegetable salad. Now that it's warm I'm all about huge fresh veggie salads for dinner. You get the idea.
.
This way of eating totally makes sense to me based on what naturally grows and available in season here in Ottawa. Spring and summer eating is also naturally more detoxifying for the body. Who else is with me on seasonal eating?! #beautyfood #beautyregimen #healthyeating #seasonaleating .

Totally getting chic Hollywood celebrity vibes from this beauty! The ironic thing is that, of course, the lovely Nova didn't see her beauty the way we did. We are always our harshest critics! Who can relate?!

Classic smokey eyes... don't limit yourself to black colours. In fact, black smokey eyes look too harsh on many women. Deep plum, taupe and shades of brown are much more flattering and easier to wear. #klavazbeautytips #makeupeducator #klavazbridal #effortlessbyklavaz .

Bridal makeup is such a personal thing, an extension of who you are and what your everyday style is!
.
That's why it is so important to find a makeup artist who's personal and makeup style you can relate to. Also another reason I take trials with brides and preparing for them so seriously! I take time and ask many questions to really understand the bride and her wedding inspiration until I have a vision in my mind of all elements with a certain makeup look that ties it all together.
.
The most rewarding part of this process is when a bride looks in the mirror at the end of the trial and I see excitement and the biggest smile ever! #klavazbridal #bridalbeautyexpert #perfectbridalmakeup #effortlessbyklavaz .

I have been working away on updating my website and looking through all reviews my clients leave me on the web to feature a few on my website. ❀
.
A few of repeating comments filled my heart with gratitude for the truly fullfiling job I have that I'm so passionate about so much that people always pick up on how much I love what I do.
.
I remember when I decided to pursue makeup and without much experience applied to MAC. The manager that hired me told me that I was the least experienced person she has hired but she saw how enthusiastic I was about makeup!!! Thank you @andrea_tingletts for seeing me and what I could be and giving me that chance! β€πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™ It was truly a pivotal moment in my life and lead me to where I'm now! #alwaysgreatful #doingwhatilove #whereitallstarted
