Discover the stories that make up our Blanche World.
For Blanche Macdonald Makeup graduate Sharon Rai, every day is a labour of love. The lavish ado of marriage was once youth’s sweetest daydream; now, that daydream has grown into the swoon-inducing reality of her workaday, as Canada’s premier bridal Makeup and Hair Artist.
For clients of twice-graduate Paige Roy, imagination is truly at their fingertips. Since launching off from both Blanche Macdonald’s Global Makeup and Nail Parlour programs, Paige has been busy brushing out incredible creatives which have seen nails metamorphosed into monarch butterflies, dragon’s treasure, beetle shells and lightning storms (to name a few).
Here at the Blanche Macdonald Centre we think that Toronto Fashion Makeup Artist Blair Petty is a pretty special talent. They feel the same way about our Makeup grad in his new hometown of Toronto too.
It doesn’t take long to be swept up by Leanne Rae Podavin’s enthusiasm for her art. The Vancouver Special Effects Makeup genius has a passion that students at Canada’s #1 Makeup School get to experience on a regular basis.
Kumi Craig makes men look great for a living. As go-to Male Groomer and Celebrity Makeup Artist, she’s the woman Hollywood and New York Agents call when one of their A-list clients have a shoot or event where they need to look their very best.
