Welcome to Paint Me Pretty where I share my obsessions with beauty and fashion with the world. I love all things beautiful whether it be beauty, makeup, fashion, art or the world itself. Beauty is my forte and I am here to share with you my love for the beauty industry with a touch of fashion and lifestyle. I love to try new beauty products and share them with the world whether it be through my Blog, Instagram, Twitter or Pinterest. I promise to share all my beauty favorites!

I am a working Makeup Artist and Esthetician. Makeup is my speciality as well as extensive nail art and design. I work in the beauty industry on a daily basis and enjoy every minute of it. I started my blog to share my knowledge and passion for the beauty industry with anyone that would take the time to read it. On occasion I will write the odd Fashion, Fitness, Food or even Travel post but I mostly focus on Beauty.

I absolutely love to travel and if I could find a job that would pay me to travel the world I would be doing it in a heartbeat. I have the travel bug and I never plan to lose it. I’ve traveled to Europe and Australia among other places and I plan to add to that list. I would absolutely love to travel around the world trying different skin care and beauty products(fingers crossed).

I previously worked at Fiorio, Cumberland in Yorkville. I was given the opportunity to work with CityLine, doing in salon makeup overs with Maurice Fiorio himself. I currently work at a salon called Me&T Studio in midtown Toronto located at the corner of Yonge and Heath Street.

 All the products featured on this site are here because I’ve tried and loved them. I will always offer an honest and fair review of a product. If I dislike a product I’ll state the pros and cons or just not feature it at all.

I have a shopping addiction in which I spend a great deal of money on beauty products! I have a slight obsession which is why I love to share it with all of you. I do receive product every now and then to try and review, if I like the product it will be featured on my blog. I am a part of the Beauty Panel for www.FashionMagazine.com and if I really love a product it will be featured on Fashion Magazine in my weekly posts.

Please note that positive reviews are not guaranteed however I will be respectful to the brand and business with balanced reviews. If I dislike a product entirely, or have a bad experience, it will not be featured on the site.
