JANINE
OWNER AND MAKEUP ARTIST

I'm ambitious, fun loving, creative and most importantly passionate about what I do. I had my first taste of the beauty industry in 2010, after having my health decline upon competing in three fitness shows. In short, my body began to shut down! Amongst many of the health complications I was battling, my hair started falling out; this was detrimental to me at the time however, it was what initially launched me into my career. I am a true believer that things happen for a reason. First, I took my certification in hair extensions, hoping to regain a sense of confidence, after losing the luxurious hair I once had. A year after that I took my Eyelash Extension Certification and passed with flying colours. My work began to receive recognition, and soon I found myself diving into Makeup Artistry. For those of you who don't know, I have been a huge art geek all my life! Sketching, creating, and working with charcoal drawings is second nature, and something I find comfort in. So naturally, makeup artistry won my heart! I didn't know exactly where this new career would lead me, but I knew the possibilities were endless and I've never looked back. I began working with leading photographers, such as AJK, who is now one of my nearest and dearest friends. Since launching BeautyMark in late 2014 my work has been published in bridal and fitness magazines across Canada, and I couldn't be more thankful. More importantly, on my journey so far, I have discovered that beauty, confidence and self love all resonate from the inside. However, even at our most confident we still like to be spoiled from time to time. We all need a little pick me up now and then, and lipstick never hurt anyone. I have been given the tools to enhance the beauty that every woman ALREADY possesses! Every person I get to touch with my brush is a gift…a special package waiting to be opened up to the world, and I just get to put the bow on it.

What I do is more than, "just make people pretty", its making a positive impact that can last a lifetime.
