I have had the pleasure of working with Candace over the 2015, 2016 & 2017 wedding seasons. As a business owner, it excites me to see the passion that ignites Candace and her love for the industry. She is not only a Makeup Artist, she is a creative, inspiring, trendsetting
talent. Cranbrook is lucky to have her!

I have had the privilege of being Candace's client for the past 9 years. Not only is she extremely talented and creative she has found a way to reinvent the art of makeup.
Wether it is your wedding day or a night out, a makeup lesson or a special occasion Candace has done it all. Not only for myself but the line of girls I have had the honour of referring to her. My wedding day was the best day of my life and Candace made me an effortlessly, timeless, beautiful bride. She is multi talented from being an artist, painter, designer and beauty goddess!! To top it all of she is a perfectionist has an eye for detail and can sculpt you into anything you dream of. From glam and bridal to lessons and special effects. If you want your special occasion to be perfect in the makeup department this is the girl to call.

I want to thank you Candace for coming out to the guest ranch and doing makeup for my girls and I. I felt like a magical mermaid.
My makeup lasted through all the sweat and tears and literally allll night long!
Candace wants to know all the wedding details before the trial date, so she can see her vision and work with you to have it all tied together for your special day.
I had originally planned to just have my bridal party around for the morning, but leading up to our wedding my grandfather got into a terrible battle with cancer. Most of my family decided to stay home. Just 3 days before the big day, he passed, perhaps so my grandmother could attend. It was so nice to have a super sweet, calm professional around during a hectic, somber family time. Candace is an amazing artist and made everyone feel like the babe they should feel like. At the time I wasn’t aware she never took money for doing my grandmother’s makeup. Having her makeup done let her shine like she does, even though she just lost her husband of almost 65 years. My Grandfather would have loved to have seen her all dolled up on that special day. So thank you Candace for squeezing her in, it was very sweet of you! We all looked and felt great. I highly reccomend Candace for your special day and as an aspiring wedding photographer I will continue to recommend you to any clients and friends.

"Candace is such a talented Make up Artist. I trusted her with my make up for my photoshoot for my business website pics, and I couldn't have been more happy with the way it turned out. I always referred my Competition clients to her for stage make up and she never let me down and always did top notch stage make up. Anyone looking for an amazing make up artist needs to contact her!!! you wont be disappointed!"

I've had the pleasure of knowing Candace for about 8 years and not only is she a great friend but an amazing makeup artist!
She takes pride in her work and you can really tell it is her passion and not just a hobby. I was blessed to have her do my makeup
for my wedding and helped me feel more beautiful than I've ever felt for my special day and she took the time to come up with
looks that I didn't even think about trying which ended up being perfect for me! I book her for all of my specail events!
I'am also grateful that we got to know each other on a professional level as well, being a hair stylist I've worked with Candace on multiple weddings and fitness competitions, she really makes it easy to work as a team to ensure our guests have the most pleasurable experience and feel as beautiful on the outside as they are on the inside! I have referred her to many people.

Prior to having my wedding makeup done I had never actually had any sort of professional makeup done-not even for my graduation! I was a little nervous prior to going in as I don't regularly wear much makeup-however Candace eased me into it and really calmed my nerves! She kept me informed along the way of the different types of makeup she was applying and I learned a few tricks to use myself. She did the makeup for my all my bridesmaids and we were complimented multiple times throughout the day on how great and natural our makeup looked. I would definitely (and have) recommended Candace to anyone who would like to have their makeup done professionally-whether it be for a special occasion or just for fun! She really played a huge part in making my day so special and cannot thank her enough.

I love having my makeup done by Candace. I had a high-profile winter-themed event to host and Candace created a dramatic
"ice-queen" look in a limited amount of time that I had, that far exceeded my expectations and turned heads wherever I went.
Everyone wanted to know who it was that made me sparkle. The whole experience was so much fun! And the product lasted throughout the day and left my skin feeling soft and radiant after I washed it off. It was the first time I ever had my makeup professionally done but it was not be the last. I also hired Candace for my wedding last summer.
Candace is an amazing talent. She really listens to what her clients want and is fully prepared to deliver to the highest expectations, using her extensive knowledge and experience to ensure a flawless look that lasts all day. Candace was the calm in the pre-wedding storm. She was professional, meticulous, and I will use her for every special occasion in my life where I want where i want to look my best and treat myself to a little extra goddess. I love her work."

I Hired Candace To do my Makeup for Prom, My experience with her was fantastic! I really loved how she let me do a consultation prior to the big day and let me try out the eyeshadow primer to make sure it would stay. She put all of my concerns to rest! Candace did a great job with re-creating the look I wanted to go with my dress. I loved it! I Wouldn't recommend anyone else but her for makeup!
Thank you again, so much!

Before hiring Candace for my wedding, I was nervous because I had only had my makeup done once before and I wasn't pleased
with how it turned out. But after a friend had recommended her to me I thought I would go for a trial. It was more than I could have hoped for. She was able to achieve the exact look I was hoping to attain from the photos that I had previously sent her and it looked better than I could have imagined. I was stress free and excited about my makeup for our big day.
I'm very grateful to Candace for helping make my day so magical. Candace was exceptionally professional and highly skilled and also made the experience relaxed. After the wedding when I received my photos from our photographer they were AMAZING! and I had nothing but compliments on how I looked, I felt like a princess. I don't think I could have had a better experience.
Candace was wonderful, professional and someone I would like to consider a new friend.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Candace and her work! Candace and I go way back, having met when she was in art school. The creative edge that she’s always had has only improved and advanced since those days! When I began planning for my wedding, I knew there was only one person I wanted to make me beautiful for my special day – and that had to be Candace. We met for a trial, and played around with different colors and looks until we found what looked best. On the day of my wedding, her work surpassed even what she did at the trial, and she made me look amazing! In addition to being a stellar artist, she’s punctual, reliable, and professional. She’s also versatile – doing not only my make up, but my Mom’s, and six bridesmaids as well! Each woman, different ages, skin types, etc. Each was thrilled with how they looked once Candace worked her magic! I’m so happy to be able to call her friend, and know that she can make me sparkle at a moment’s notice! Anyone who has the opportunity to work with her will not be disappointed!

Candace and I worked together on various shoots, projects and occasions over the years and she is a exquisite, talented and skilled
makeup artist! Since her move to Cranbrook she has been greatly missed. She has the ability to cater to everyones needs no matter where she travels. She is successful in makeup artistry because she is truly a passionate artist.
I wish her all the best in Cranbrook and the Kootenay Reigon!
