Andrea was born and raised in Lima, Peru and moved to Vancouver 12 years ago to pursue her dream career. She has been inspired by makeup art and beauty for as long as she can remember. After working in different fields including fashion she decided to start a career in makeup artistry to follow her true passion. She hasn’t stopped since and is loving every minute of it. She’s a graduate from the renowned John Casablanca’s Institute of Applied Arts where she's now an Instructor for their Makeup department. Andrea started her career working right away with modelling agencies spreading her wings in makeup for photography and fashion having her work featured in a range of magazines through out Canada as well as internationally.

"I have a true passion for my career. I love the artistic part of doing make up and being able to create. At the same time I really enjoy working with people and helping them achieve the look that they're looking for but most of all I love to make them feel good about them selves. To me make up is not so much about transforming but it's about enhancing, bringing alive your natural beauty. Having a customer leave my chair with a smile on their face is my greatest reward. My mission is to help you enhance your natural beauty, make you feel and look your best, have fun using colours and embellish your natural features."

Testimonials and Kind Words:

"Andrea is a magician! I have worked with her professionally for the past 5 years. Since meeting and working with Andrea, I haven’t worked with a single other HMUA. She listens to your vision and understands exactly what you want, and brings it to life in the most accurate way. After years of working together, she still surprises me! I got married last year, and wouldn’t have trusted my hair and makeup to anyone else. She goes above and beyond and I would give her 6 stars if I could." Hailey Gerrits - Client

"Andrea is great! She did my makeup and it was the perfect look. My skin tone is hard to work with- I have brown skin and it has both cool and warm tones. Its been always hard for me to find the right makeup, but Andrea gave me the perfect look and I absolutely loved it. She understood all my concerns and worked with them. She was very flexible and incorporated all my suggestions. Would recommend wholeheartedly to any future brides :)" Ana Gupta-Bride

"Thank you SO much for the hair and makeup, it was INCREDIBLE! I received so many compliments, and my mom and sister were thrilled with their looks as well. You are SO talented- thank you! I stood in the hot sun for hours, then danced for hours, and at the end of the night, my hair was still in tact, exactly the way it was when you did it, and my makeup, untouched, even after all the tears! THANK YOU! " Rebecca Vincent - Bride

"I waited to send you this email because I wanted to be able to include a photo from our hair and makeup. I have to honestly tell you, that people are raving about my hair and makeup in the shots! I have had multiple people contact me after posting them who have specifically pointed out how incredible my hair and makeup was, and to give props to the artist, so I wanted to share those praises with you! I've included the best head-on shot from the session. I'm obsessed with this photo, again, hair and makeup are unreal amazing! Funny enough, this was the absolute last photo taken of the day, so it was a few hours after the makeup and hair application, and both still look flawless. Thank you again so much, I'm so happy to have found you, and to have you as part of such a special time in our lives!" - Rebecca Vincent - Client
