Lẹwa = pretty, beautiful in Yoruba.
I am a (MUA) certified makeup artist with over six years experience in using makeup to highlight the “lewa” that is inherent to your character and your special moment. I have experience in bridal, day, evening, photography, television and fashion makeup and have worked in Ontario and British Columbia. Lewa is a mobile business with service in the Cambridge, London and Hamilton areas. (A small mileage fee may apply to areas outside of this catchment – please inquire).
My passion began in my pre teens experimenting with eyeliner and blush. This interest grew and before I knew it I was having friends ask if I could “do their face” before going out to events. During my post- graduate training at the University of Western Ontario I decided to expand this interest by taking an MUA course. While this decision was made in order to spend more time with a friend (‘shout out to Candace’!) the course provided me with skills and knowledge to hone my techniques as an artist and master my medium, the human face and body.
I truly believe it is important to follow your aspirations and dreams. I completed five years of post secondary studying degrees I had great interest in but not what I had true passion for (art). As scary as it is to follow your dreams with the fear of failure always lurking in the shadows; the fear of the unknown is greater. I believe you will feel more life satisfaction doing work that makes you happy, is challenging and self fulfilling.
Education I completed my undergraduate degree at Brescia University and graduated with an HBA in the Sociology of Crime, Deviance and Law. I then went on and obtained my Master’s in Environment and Sustainability at the University of Western Ontario. I received my Makeup Artistry Certificate at the School of Elegance and continue to stay up to date with the latest trends by taking workshops whenever I can!
Personal Life I am a proud mother of four (two being 100lb dogs) and absolutely love being family oriented where I can devote any extra time to my husband and children...probably watching movies, or enjoying the outdoors. Outside of my family and my work with Lewa, I am a certified Group Fitness Instructor with over seven years experience in the industry.
