Finding a great makeup artist for your wedding is super important, and I had the opportunity of working with Nadeen several times — and let me tell you… she is AMAZING! Not only is she incredibly passionate about what she does, but her style is natural and beautiful.

I recently had the pleasure of talking to Nadeen, the founder of Faces By Nadeen to get a little more insight on how she can help brides take their wedding look to the next level.

When did you love for makeup begin?

I think I first started loving makeup when I would watch my mom do hers when I was a little girl. It started growing even more as a teenager when I would watch YouTube tutorials then try out the looks on my friends. My love continues to grow as I get to learn and try new things.

How do you describe your style? 

I’d say that my style in 3 words would be natural, fresh and fun. I truly believe makeup is about bringing out everyone’s natural beauty by enhancing their best features to complement their skin, style, and personality.

What do you like most about providing makeup for brides?

Other than making my brides feel absolutely beautiful inside and out on their special day, my favorite thing is just getting to know the bride and talk about their big day. I love that I get to meet so many inspiring women.

What is your #1 advice to brides when looking for a makeup style?

Find a makeup look that will still make you feel like yourself and enhance your naturally beautiful features. Makeup should bring out all of your features, not hide them!

Aside from wedding makeup, what is something else you can be found enjoying?

When I’m able to, I love to travel. I love the feeling of being somewhere new and learning about different cultures. I get a lot of inspiration from seeing all the various customs, arts and colours from different countries.
