I’m Karen, a freelance Make-Up Artist based in Toronto.
After graduating from the University of Toronto with a science degree, I decided not to pursue my longtime aspiration to become a doctor. Ever since I was a young girl beauty and makeup were things that always interested me, so instead I enrolled at The School of Makeup Art (SOMA). After graduating from makeup school, I worked in healthcare for several years but couldn’t ignore the little voice inside that continued to remind me of my love for the art of makeup. What initially started off as a hobby has now turned into a full time career.
I’ve been fortunate to work with clients in various industries from bridal and fashion, to sports. I love using makeup artistry as an outlet for creativity and no two jobs are ever the same, so each opportunity continues to be incredibly exciting and rewarding.
