In addition to being Fancy Face Inc.’s Client Support and Artists Manager, Angela X is also one of our top makeup artists. Angela’s passion lies with makeup, however she is experienced with hairstyling as well. Her love for makeup started when she was just a child. She enjoyed playing with different products and would often use her two sisters and close friends as models. After graduating from an intensive 2-year hair and makeup program at Sheridan College (trained by professionals who were active in the industry), she worked at Sephora and developed a love for high-end makeup. The constant training and exposure to the most elite brands of the beauty industry was invaluable to her – though dangerous for collecting paychecks as they would sometimes be spent before even leaving the store! With her extensive product knowledge on a wide range of brands, Angela is able to pick the best products for any clients’ skin type. Our clients love Angela for her ability to enhance their best features and make them feel glamourous!
What do you like about working for Fancy Face Inc.?
The company REALLY cares about the client’s happiness. We appreciate that people trust us to be a part of their big day – and we DO NOT take that for granted. We only stock high-end, luxury brands brands in our kits – which allows the artists and clients to feel confident that the makeup and hair will last and look fabulous the entire day!
What is your favourite part of the job?
Seeing the bridal “glow”. And I am not talking about a really good highlight powder…. When the bride is finished getting her hair and makeup done, and slips away to get dressed and put on her jewelry – something truly amazing happens. It becomes real! The smile and joy on a bride’s face when she realizes this, is truly beautiful! When everything comes together and you see the final product – it is a breathtaking and intimate moment that I feel truly blessed to be a part of!
What is the most memorable moment of your career?
I have had many memorable moments and many memorable clients! It is hard to pick just one. I think every experience is unique and unforgettable in it’s own way. If I had to mention an experience that was truly remarkable, I would have to say volunteering on the Easter Seals Telethon with a few members from the Fancy Face Inc. team. It was great to work with and meet the celebrity news anchors, but what I really enjoyed was working with the amazing child ambassadors. Their stories were so touching and they were all so strong and resilient. Having the opportunity to volunteer and put our skills to work for a good cause was a blessing!
