Faye Smith Makeup & Hair began in 2007 when Faye started her training in makeup in England,UK. Faye’s teacher, Emma, saw a special talent in Faye and after only three months of training, Emma began hiring her as her assistant working on Opera Shows in Birmingham city. Faye soon decided to further develop her skills by enrolling in the Global Makeup Program at Blanche Macdonald in Vancouver, Canada. By the time Faye had graduated in August 2009 she was well on her way to a successful career as a freelance makeup and hair artist.
Now, Faye Smith Makeup & Hair has grown into a network of very talented artists who she considers to be of the same calibre (if not better, she jokes) as herself in both physical skill level, experience and work ethics. This means that at all times, every client is receiving the very best service, that include bridesmaids!
“I am so anal about my business. I love my work and I love my clients. I am constantly striving for perfection not only as a solo artist, but as the team of artists Faye Smith Makeup & Hair has become. Although I am very picky about selecting the artists on the team, if I see something special in someone who is new, I am very happy to mentor them. After all, that is how I grew to where I am now”, says Faye.
Faye and her team cover all areas of the makeup and hair industry including; bridal, beauty, fashion, commercial, theatre, film, stage and more. Faye has worked with the Housewives of Vancouver, as London Drugs marketing artist, for Microsoft, Sony Imageworks, Jason Matlo, House of Smooch, Douglas Coupland and more big names.
