It's A Gorgeous Life

It's A Gorgeous Life

Lea did my makeup for the Healthy Role Models photoshoot in Nanaimo in November. She is an absolute dream to work with. Very professional and talented. I walked away feeling ten feet tall and felt that I had made a friend for life.
Words can't even describe how beautiful you made me feel the day of my wedding Lea Smith!! Thank you for taking the time to make every single one of my bridesmaids look and feel absolutely gorgeous. PS: Theo did cry! He said I looked even more beautiful than he could have imagined.

Celebrating life as a Transformation Artist. Lea Smith is a Makeup Artist, Registered Nurse, and Health & Wellness Mentor based on Vancouver Island.

"The more you praise and celebrate your life, the more there is in life to celebrate." - Oprah Winfrey Lea Smith began her professional career as a Makeup Artist and Esthetician after her education in 2005 where she worked in a number of Canada's top resort spas on the West Coast, and Vancouver Island. Lea's love for acquiring knowledge lead her back to school, where she began her nursing degree in 2011. During this time, Lea left the spa industry, and began to focus solely on freelance makeup. In 2012, Lea fell in love with fitness and nutrition. She learned how empowering it was as a woman to feel strong, healthy, energetic, and have confidence in your body. Lea feels blessed to have her career as a Perioperative Nurse, and travel Vancouver Island for her Makeup Artistry. She's also passionate about supporting women in transforming their health through fitness, nutrition, and mindset. www.itsagorgeouslife.com

People always ask me what I love most about being a makeup artist, and I always say itโ€™s the amazing people that I have the opportunity to connect with, the friends I end up making โค๏ธ @shi_studio You were an absolutely radiant bride this past weekend, and it was an honour to be a part of your beautiful wedding day! ๐Ÿ˜˜

Some makeup I did a while back for a branding shoot with Allison Taylor Creative โค๏ธ

A visit with Jen Wynia ๐Ÿ’•
Makeup by the wonderful Lea Smith

Growing up, my Scottish Granny Vi taught me the importance of looking after ones skin. She would say โ€œgreat skin can be a woman best accessoryโ€. She wore sunscreen daily, a hat and sunglasses outside, and followed a skin care regimen until she passed away at nearly 101 (while looking 70).. Yes, she also ate well and exercised daily ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป #rolemodel

Working in the beauty industry for the past 13 years has made me very aware of the advances in skin care, and preventative and restorative treatments. Like my Granny Vi, I too believe investing in our skin is important, and affects so much more than its appearance!

My makeup clients ALWAYS ask about skincare and treatments, and Iโ€™m always happy to share!

This past week, I had the opportunity for FANTASTIC treatment at @synergymedicalaesthetics here in Nanaimo. Synergy offers a variety of both surgical and non-surgical treatments by Plastic Surgeon Dr. Phil Barnsley, Dermatologist Dr. Gabriele Weichert and their team.

So what did I choose?! Their most popular treatment combination! A Fractional Non-Ablative Laser treatment combined with Microneedling ๐Ÿ˜ And no, it wasnโ€™t scary ( everything was explained) and didnโ€™t hurt at all thanks to the numbing cream ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป

Second picture shows skin immediately after the treatments. Pink and warm, feeling like a mild sunburn. Over the next 7 days my skin peeled mildly, tone evened, pores noticeably reduced, and fine lines disappeared ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

Because I know everyone will ask what These treatments do, Iโ€™m going to spell it out! Everything from pigmentation, sundamage, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, collagen production, enlarged pores, etc!

So basically, if you ever had active acne ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ, Went outdoors without a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen unlike my Granny Vi (unfortunately also me ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ), are over the age of 20 and therefore show any signs of aging ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ (helllo 30โ€™s), and want to feel great in your skin ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ I highly suggest scheduling a consultation.

A big shout out to Synergyโ€™s MOA, Hayley for the impeccable customer service! From the first conversation on the phone, to the warm hug as I left, she was amazing!

One of the best smiles ever โค๏ธ
