Vancity Vendor: Timeless Beauty by Victoria

Victoria Nguyen It was inevitable that Victoria Nguyen would find herself in the beauty industry… After all, it was all she thought about ever since she was a child! She decided to pursue a career in fashion, but the wedding industry would come knocking at her door soon enough. She agreed to help her friends out and beautify them for their own weddings and formal parties. This was when she discovered her true calling and sought professional training at Blanche MacDonald… The rest is history.

A Few Words With Victoria…

Timeless Beauty by Victoria What brands of products do you like to use? Why did you choose them?
“My makeup kit contains mostly MAC products. I find that MAC products are very versatile, highly pigmented and long-lasting.  They have a variety of selections to choose from that fits all different type of skin tones.  MAC has amazing selections of colours for eye shadows, blushes and foundations.  They looks incredibly gorgeous on professional photos as well. I just love MAC products!  I also use other products such as Bobbi Brown, Laurie Mercier, Smash Box, Makeup for Forever and some other special products that are used in the film/television industry.”

What do you have to offer for brides with lower budgets?
“You will find that my prices are fairly reasonable especially for the high and consistent quality of service and products that I provide.  I understand that things can add up a lot when planning your wedding and it can hurt when you don’t have that extra budget to get yourself professionally beautified on your big day.  I think that hair and makeup is the most important process to include on your BIG DAY! After all, EVERY EYES will be on you as the bride!  I’m confident that you will be in great hands with me.  I offer friendly, comfortable, professional and quality service at a great price and will ensure my service will run smoothly!!! I’m highly organized in everything I do and you will definitely see that when I work with you.   I’m mobile, so I come to YOU! I truly believe everyone can look like those celebrities on the red carpet.  You just need the right professional makeup application and hair style!”

Timeless Beauty by Victoria What sets you apart from others in the same field?
“Every makeup artist has their own unique style and different ways of applying makeup and/or hairstyling.  Beauty is in the eye of the beholder… For me, my approach to makeup is to enhance your natural beauty and to ensure you have a clean, flawless and radiant look.  I can create a variety of looks from natural, bold to a dramatic look with smoky eyes but in the end my ultimate goal is to ensure you look like YOU and work with you to achieve the look that you desire.”

How do you determine what look is best for each person?
“The way I determine what look is best for each person. I look at their eye colour, skin tone, and hair colour.  I also like to know their gown/dress style, colour theme, jewelleries and any other accessories that will be added.  These elements are important to me when choosing the right colour that will suit their overall look.”

Timeless Beauty by Victoria If a client wants a certain style but you can tell it doesn’t make them look great, how would you deal with that situation?
“If a certain style doesn’t suite a client, I would give them my professional opinion and explain the reasons why it would not look great on that person.  I would try to work to the best of my ability to help the client to achieve their desired look.   In the end, most of my clients were very glad that they had trusted my opinions because they love the way their hair and makeup looks on professional pictures as well as the numerous compliments they received.”

What is your favourite bridal look and why?
“I love soft, romantic, sexy and sophisticated looks.  I’m drawn to neutral earth tone colours such as light soft pinks and browns. On the other hand, I also love smoky eyes with bold red lip colour.  I always love to play up the eyes.  I find that it is the most capturing and striking feature of the face.  I love long LASHES, I can never get enough!!!  I love the eyes to have natural, long, soft, feathery, and luscious lashes.  All my clients love the individual lashes I place on them.  They are all so amazed of how natural it looks and how light it feels. It doesn’t feel like you are wearing fake lashes.  My clients tell me that they sleep with their lashes over night because they don’t want to wash them off.  LOL!”

Timeless Beauty by Victoria What do you enjoy most about your job?
“What I enjoy most about my job is seeing the reaction on my clients’ face after the hair and makeup is completed.   It gives me such a happy heart when clients are so amazed with the final look I created for them. Their bright smile and the joy on their face is the only reward I ask for.  It truly touches my heart that I am able to help women feel and look their most beautiful on there special day!   At the same time, it gives me a great opportunity to meet and connect with so many amazing women out there.  Beautiful in the inside and outside!”

If you had one piece of advice for a bride and groom, what would it be?
“Always live, love and laugh each day. Each and everyday, give each other words of affirmation, lots of kisses, hugs, compliments and unconditional love. Every day say, “I LOVE YOU”.  Live in the moment together, communicate and listen clearly to each other.  Despite busy schedules at times, always have (at least) one day of the week a date night.  Never forget to live each day as if it was your last.  You only have one life so make the most of it together!”
