Ask a Makeup Artist


5 per session - - Posted May 10, 2017

Ask me a makeup or skincare related question and I would love to give you the advice you're looking for! I will give you a detailed answer to your question, along with references and pictures if needed.

Start off by telling me a little bit about yourself, then ask me your question! Some examples can include, but are not limited to:
* the best drugstore/high end makeup (including inexpensive "dupes" to your favourite high end products)
* concealers that do not crease
* how to perfect winged eyeliner
* the best makeup look for your eye shape, faceshape & complexion
* my skincare recommendations for your skin type
* my opinion on how I think you should do your makeup for an event (based on your personality, style and outfit)

I would prefer to give you a detailed written answer, but if you are visually impaired, or an auditory learner, I would love to set something up for you. I look forward to doing one-on-one makeup tutorials in the future!

Training & Qualifications

I am a certified makeup artist and licensed hairstylist. I work full-time at a salon and part-time in cosmetics at Shoppers Drug Mart. I have taken various makeup, skincare and haircare classes, including but not limited to: Redken, Vichy, La Roche-Posay, Sexy Hair, Dermablend, Mirabella, StriVectin and Avene. I participated in 2 makeup competitions at the Toronto ABA hair show (2016 & 2017) and was part of the media backstage at Toronto Fashion Week 2015.

Availability & Preferences

I work often, but ask me anytime of the day and I will get back to you ASAP!

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

About Mercedes Dawson

Hairstylist & makeup artist. I love my career. It's more than just what meets the eye. It's creating relationships with people and making them feel beautiful inside and out. It's being the person they... go to so they can step away from the stress of life and be pampered by someone else. (And don't worry, that someone else AKA me gets pampered too). If I can just make someone's day a little brighter or a little easier, then that would mean the world to me. show more
