From a young age, Louisa has always had a passion for all forms of art. Throughout her artistic development, Louisa’s use of colours and her artistic style stood far above the rest. She was often praised by her renowned art mentors for her “sense in colours”. Her experiments with morphological Acrylic Paint colours on canvas created some of her most signature pieces in her youth.
She first discovered her love of cosmetics in the 11th grade, when she helped one of her friends get ready for that magical first date. Her friend, who felt constant insecurity from her vitiligo, was brought to tears with her radiant transformation. Since this impromptu makeover experience, Louisa has labored tirelessly to develop and pursue her own art style in the cosmetic industry.
After graduating high school with distinction, Louisa finished the C|MU Makeup Art and Design program, specializing in special effects make up and hair styling for fashion, film, and theatre, receiving “The Complete Makeup Artist Program” diploma in 2011.
While working on an array of prominent TV/film projects, she thought back to her first “client”—her 11th grade friend; she remembered the joy; she remembered the fulfillment; she remembered that special day. Her special affects makeup accomplishments paled in comparison in her heart to that moment. Since then, she has had the honour of transforming hundreds of brides for their special occasions. Further her artistic development, Louisa enrolled in the prestigious Ulyanov Aster Education program and recently, received her “Bridal Hair Styling Master Class” certificate in 2018.
She is currently the top makeup artist in Toronto with a predominately Asian/East Asian clientele. Barbara Alexander, Co-Founder/VP of Cargo Cosmetics, recognized and complimented her on her innovative techniques as well as her unique palette selection. Today, Louisa continues her work as an amalgamation of her love for others and her passion for artistic realism.
