Hey loves! My name is Santana Ray and I am a freelance makeup artist based in the Lower Mainland of BC, Canada. Growing up like any young girl I would play dress up in my Mom's clothes and walk around in her high heels but makeup was never a focus at first. It wasn't until I was in the 10th grade that I really took an interest in makeup, watching YouTube videos, and finally listening to Mom about putting some makeup on to enhance my features. Since then my focus area of makeup application has been enhancing one's own natural beauty and features.
To start off my freelance career I was accepted into Blanche MacDonald Makeup School in Vancouver, BC. Attending there fueled my love for makeup at a deeper level that I didn't know was possible. I also made tons of new friends who I now consider my sisters. After completing my course I received my diploma in Freelance Makeup Artistry. Since then I have worked in a small beauty boutique focusing on clean makeup as well as skincare and doing freelance gigs such as for a book signing and weddings.
Being in this industry brings so much joy in my life and constantly keeps me on my toes. There's never a dull moment and always something new to investigate. Hence why I wanted to start my own blog to share with all of you all the tips and tricks I've learned along the way, reviews on makeup and skincare products and just have fun with beauty. I hope that each of you can take away pieces of information from each blog post and just have fun experimenting within this realm.
