I have always been fascinated by beauty since I was a young girl. I could often be found snooping in my mom’s makeup case, and finding a new home for what was hers.
After completing my Bachelor of Education at Glendon University and working as a Teacher for a few years, I knew I wanted more. I enrolled in a makeup course and was certified by Canadian Beauty College. I also went on to be certified by top Makeup Artists like Stephanie Valentine (Glamzilla) and Julia Dantas. I have also been 4x certified as a Lash Artist by leading trainers in the industry (Lulu Lange and Michelle).
The feeling that came along with amplifying someone’s beauty was amazing and truly fulfilling. Seeing someone looking into the mirror for the first time and rediscovering how beautiful they are lets me know that I have done what I set out to do.
Some of my latest accomplishments include working as a Makeup Artist for Start Up Fashion Week, where I worked on a model that opened the show. I also executed custom looks, set out by designers in a fast paced environment. My work has also been published in advertisements for several independent fashion brands.
With my background and knowledge in Teaching, I wanted to give more to my clients. That is why I offer 1-on-1 and group lessons for makeup. Whether you are an artist looking to refresh or deepen your knowledge, or you’re a complete newbie, I am here to help. I also offer training for aspiring Lash Artists.
THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW
I LOVE TRAVELLING
I’ve been fortunate to have travelled to fun cities like NYC and countries like China.
I'M OBSESSED AND
POWERED BY COFFEE
I'M A LATE RISER
My favourite thing to do is sleep in in the morning when I get the chance, which is very rare.
I LOVE WORKING WITH LULU BECAUSE...
Layal isn't a makeup artist.. She's a makeup guru! Not only can she beat a stunning face, but she can really help YOU understand the foundational principles of makeup so that you can apply them yourself. Whether it be a soft, natural day look that rivals any digital filter, or a smoldering, sexy night look that will leave everyone who passes by you weak at the knees; she has all the tools to empower you to look and feel divine! 10/10 would recommend her for some face time any time.
