Bubblewand curling iron by Verge

Mika in Ibiza, Spain, using her Bubble Wand curling iron by Verge

The “Bubble Wand” curling iron from Verge creates amazingly perfect, imperfect curls that soften into beach waves. You can curl your entire head of hair in less than 15 minutes and the curls last for days! The curls in the above photo lasted 2 days, even in the Ibiza heat! It would have lasted longer but who couldn’t resist a dunk in the Balearic sea?

You can pick up your bubble wand at The Studio by MikaDoesMakeup located at 1054 Hornby Street or call if you have any questions – 604.764.Mika(6452)

MikaDoesMakeup and Faye Smith from The Studio by MikaDoesMakeup made their way over to 3 weddings on the day of Bride Briony’s big day. Briony’s wedding was their 2nd stop of the day and the most enjoyable stop with her being so extremely hospitable and pleasant. After applying makeup on the 3 bridesmaids and bride, Briony made up a little take away lunch for the busy makeup artists. They will forever be grateful and will always remember her cheerfulness and kindness… not to mention her natural good looks that made her photos turn out beautifully.

Klara was our model for photographer David Dolsen’s beach concept shoot at the end of Summer. She has beautiful light skin and large piercing green eyes… so for the makeup I used an Eminence Organics Tropical Vanilla Sun Cream, then a MAC skin primer for foundation prep. I then applied concealer to any uneven tones and airbrushed her colour of foundation all over her face and neck, avoiding her eye area. I used MAC’s paint pot in Painterly to prep her eyelids and mainly a burgandy shadow well blended with many light shades to soften the colour. Her skin was then sunkissed with an Eminence skin illuminator, her cheeks a peachy blush, her eyes enhanced with thick false strip eyelashes then finished off with a light lip gloss. Photographer David Dolsen chose Sunset Beach at English Bay in Vancouver for the background of the photoshoot. Stylist Joanna Keller threw a braid in Klara’s hair as well as put together the funky outfits with help from her partner store, MintageVintage.

A team that creates magic.
