I recently did a call out on my Instagram page for any burning questions you may have about me and my life. I have been giving you all the beauty and makeup advice for awhile now but I really want you all to get to know the me behind the lipstick!
I picked a few of my favorites but welcome any new questions in the comments. I love when magazines have those quick all about me Q&A’s at the back so I hope you enjoy this snapshot into me!
What is your go-to cocktail? White wine, champagne, and anything with gin.
What’s the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning? I check my phone and read over my group chats with my girls. It’s always LIT 😂
How many photos do you have on your phone’s camera roll right now? 13,660….. normal, no? 🤦🏻♀️
What’s your nationality? Persian 🤗 Born in Iran, moved to Canada when I was 6 💛
What is your biggest pet peeve? Lack of ambition. 🙈
What is your favorite skin care product that you can’t live without? Josie Maran Argan Oil. This is my be all and end all. I start and end my day with this product.
What is your lighting set up? What cameras do you use? I either use natural light or the Diva Ring Light. Honestly waiting for the perfect natural light is one of my favorite things to experiment with. I have a Canon t5i Plus for my selfies and for product placement photos I use my iPhone. Natural lighting is always best for product or flat lay photos as to avoid flash back. If you would like to know what apps I use to edit please comment below!
Have you gone to makeup school? Yes. I took a year long global makeup program. I have continued to learn over the years however and honestly passion is the best thing you can have in your brush belt. Before makeup school I pursued a degree in Criminology/Law and completed a 4 year program. I just could not quiet the voice in my heart that said beauty was my calling.
What was the first CD you ever bought? Destiny’s Child!
Fall is officially here and while I am a die-hard summer girl, I do love changing up my makeup game for fall. One of my favorite looks for both myself and my clients, is a neutral eye and bold lip. Studies have been done into colors and lipstick, particularly red. Bold colors are said to make people feel more alert which means a bold lip is a great idea when you are speaking in front of a group of people or have a big presentation at work!
I am wearing Buxom Plump Liner in Mystery. This is my go to lipstick. It is a lip liner and lipstick all in one. Matte, long wearing, and comfortable on my lips. They come in a variety of shades and it will be a staple for all my fall makeup looks. Tell me your favorite fall lip colors and brands in the comments below!

With summer coming to an end, i’m craving Spring ’18 already! Peep below for a few images from one of my favorite designers that stood out to me at VFW . Charly Thorn is just an 18 year old Australian designer and her pieces are beautiful. The teal coloured fabric is 100% Australian Merino Wool, the transparent fabric is 100% silk, and the print is 100% linen. Can’t wait to show you all more pieces from the collection. In the meantime, check out Charly Thorn and swoon over some of her beautiful SS’18 collection. #womanwhosupporteachother
Vancouver Fashion Week has been a staple in Vancouver since 2001. Ever evolving – just like fashion – this year’s opening gala (and also the full 7 day show) was held at the Chinese Cultural Centre in Chinatown on September 18th, 2017. This venue lent a hand to the gritty feel of the show – very much Sex in the City circa 1999.
The crowd was plentiful and varied, just the way a fashion show should be. Redken was on hand offering hair touch ups to show goers before they could head to Republic nightclub for the afterparty.
My personal favorite was Charly Thorn. She is an 18 year old Australian designer who made me crave Spring ’18 already! At such a young age she is sure to continue to grow and produce amazing fashion in the years to come. One piece in particular stood out to me. This structured beach suit. Not only the shape but the pattern had me begging to see more. The entire aesthetic of her show had me feeling I could move to an island and live there forever.
Aiki District had a much more laid back and simplistic feel. The neutral colors and unstructured cuts worked so well with the fabrics chosen. Any piece could work alone but also be given your own spin with the right accessories and styling.
