Hello gorgeous! My name is Arianne and I am a freelance makeup artist and beauty blogger from Toronto, Canada. I am the founder of Glitter Geek (www.glittergeek.ca), a beauty blog with product reviews and makeup looks. When I started my beauty blog several years ago, I was fortunate to meet so many passionate makeup artists and beauty junkies like me. In 2011, I decided to take courses and get my feet wet in the world of makeup artistry. I love how clients’ faces light up after the “big reveal” — they stand taller with their chin up and smile. A lot. That’s what I love about doing makeup.
My philosophy with makeup is simple: don’t be afraid to play! Makeup should be fun — get creative; find new uses for a product; don’t take it seriously. So what if you absolutely hate the makeup? There’s a makeup removing wipe for that.
When I’m not doing makeup, my time is usually spent cuddling my cat Scherbatsky. I’m a total crazy cat lady!
I look forward to hearing from you, whether you are interested in getting dolled up, or even just to say hello! Email me at: arianne [at] artistrybyarianne [dot] com or use the contact form.
In My Makeup Kit
As a long-time makeup junkie (and I have a bursting vanity table to prove it!), I’ve tried many different products and only stock the best in my professional kit. I use a variety of makeup from brands such as MAC, Yaby, MAKE UP FOR EVER, FACE atelier and Cover FX.
