Halloween is a huge hit in our house. It is basically where my love for all things makeup began. From the time I was very young, I could remember loving the anticipation of Halloween and loving creating my costumes and of course the Halloween makeup.
I planned our outfits, the scene and the makeup. After our first shoot, the feedback was phenomenal. It then sent the wheels spinning in my head to continue to do this with my family as it grew. Here is our shoots from Halloween’s past. 1 & 2 at the top, 3 & 4 in the middle and 5th, bottom left, including this year’s on the bottom right.
This past Halloween, was our 6th Halloween family photoshoot and probably my favourite so far. We now have 3 kids to join us in all the ghoulish fun. They absolutely love it and now contribute their own creativity into the process.
I decorated our dining room with some cobwebs, giant spiders, paper bats. I set our table for a feast of the young (our third babe as our main course)
A toast with some cranberry juice made to look like blood, and there you have it. The Cherlet family at our best, I mean worst…our best worst.
Already starting to plan for next year’s shoot. All in good fun!
I was having lunch with some family and friends at a local restaurant here in Squamish, when I met her. She was our server at the Howe Sound Brew Pub. I knew right away, that I needed to use my makeup skills and do a photoshoot together.
Then my husband, (my biggest fan) jumped in and said “I have one of your business cards” What did I have to loose at that point? Not much.
So I waited until we got our bill, and asked her. Like I was asking her out on a date. Our table of 10 all watching, I was sure that she was going to say no to the idea. She seemed very receptive.
I contacted a photographer I work with here in Squamish, and David jumped on the idea as well.
I loved her enthusiasm.
Here is the result of my photoshoot with my beautiful friend and shot by David Fournier.
She’s a total babe.
Giving back is really important to me. I try to give away a makeup makeover at least 6 times a year.
By giving, I get so much more in return. I always leave these makeovers happy and fulfilled and the last one I did in 2015 was by far the best of the year.
When I announced that Siobhan won, she responded almost right away but she had a dilemma. She lives in Terrace, BC which is about 8 hours away from Squamish, and the greater Vancouver area.
I wasn’t sure how it was going to work, until she told me that she’d be coming into Vancouver over the next week or so. I instantly jumped at the idea and made the arrangements.
I set up my chair and she jumped right in and said “I feel like a movie star”.
Siobhan was the perfect reminder as to why I do these makeovers. It brings out a level of confidence and self love that just makes me feel great. Each and everyone of these women look at me with an appreciation for making them feel beautiful, confident and powerful and that alone is the main reason why I do this.
When I was done with my makeup makeover on Siobhan, I had a few minutes left so I asked if her daughter Aedin who is 14 and was eagerly watching me the whole time, if she wanted to sit in the chair and get a min makeover too. She was absolutely happy too.
Check out Siobhan and her daughter Aedin’s beauty looks.
In Squamish, our summers are fairly hot. It’s a humid heat so the majority of the time, your makeup is melting off your face. So for this particular shoot, it was a bit of a challenge to say the least.
We went up to Anderson Beach in Squamish, BC. It just so happened to be one of the hottest days of the year and the last. It was a perfect day for this particular shoot.
Man, were we hot. Literally. I was a bit worried going into the day, but definitely pulled it off in the end.
With lot’s of blotting and a layering technique, I was able to keep the makeup where I wanted it to and keep the shiny sweat look at bay.
Check it out!

When you’ve purchased some natural mineral makeup and go to put it on and find yourself not happy with the results, certain techniques can help it last longer and look better.
Sometimes I get a request from a Squamish bride for mineral makeup. The worst would be for it to come off within a few short hours of application.
Rest assured that I have tried and tested a few brands, and I’ve boiled it down to technique and tools used.
So I will be doing a natural mineral makeup workshop coming up for all you lovely ladies. It will be hosted at Be Clean Naturally on January 26th, 2016 from 6-8pm. It will be an evening of tutorials, tips and tricks. Enjoy a glass of wine and cheese courtesy of Black Market Cheese.
The tickets are $15. If you purchase tickets beforehand, you will receive an additional 10% off all Earth Lab Cosmetics. Come early to save a good seat.
I look forward to seeing all your beautiful faces.
