Hi, I’m Maya! A montreal expat and now Toronto based makeup artisT with a passion for eco-beauty. I find value in helping people look their best and feel great about it!

Along with my keen understanding of colour, light and composition, I am constantly dedicated to carefully researching and testing the latest in natural, organic skincare and makeup ingredients as well as eco-friendly products on the market, to bring the best of green beauty to you, my discerning clients.

More and more women have started caring about what they put in and on their bodies, I know I do! That’s why I started moving away from the so-called ‘luxury’ brands and questioning everything women are being told and sold. Via my direct skincare and makeup applications for over 500 weddings to date, private tutorials, and group workshops and parties, I’ve been able to share what I have learned and practice while encouraging and giving others the practical tools to be the change they want to see. Empowering others to live in harmony with their values and our planet is my passion!

I love collaborating with others to bring more beauty into being. My experience in luxury retail as a regional Dior stylist and NARS trainer and stylist in both Quebec and the GTA, as well as doing red-carpet and fashion/editorials, strengthened my eye to be precise and my hands to be calm yet quick, as time is always of the essence.

As one of Toronto’s first Sappho Cosmetics ambassadors in 2013 and a proud creator of my own brand of all-natural, small batch, handmade skincare “Kavana”, I am always keen to promote and share Canadian women-owned businesses that are good for the planet and public health. Do you have one? Let’s talk! I’d love to hear from you! Connect with me here today!

"Maya is an extraordinary makeup artist who has become a dear friend. Each time she does my makeup for an event, I'm amazed by her creativity and talent. Whether we are going for a bold look or something classic, I always feel beautiful in the end. It doesn't hurt that she has the perfect personality to calm my nerves before an event, if necessary! She's truly one of the best and loveliest makeup artists around!"

"As a wedding photographer I know the importance of placing your trust in the hands of professionals on your wedding day - and that's why I just could not imagine my wedding without Maya there to help me look my best! Bringing her to Mexico with me is a decision I am so glad I made. I felt confident and beautiful... and that feeling is just priceless!"
