Win a Beauty Session with Victoria Ho

You’re gonna love this giveaway ladies! Makeup artist Victoria Ho is offering up a free makeup session to a lucky Vancity Bride reader… perfect for a night out or just because you want to look fabulous!

Victoria Ho has been in the industry for 2 years now but her passion started earlier on. She had been obsessed with makeup products for quite some time and started watching hours of styling videos on youtube. She enrolled in a makeup class purely for self interest but she fell in love with the art and decided to pursue it further. While in makeup school, Victoria caught the eye of Mink Makeup & Hair, a bridal beauty giant in Vancouver, who eventually added her to their team. She now works solo and specializes in mobile wedding makeup and hair styling, as well as boudoir, fashion, and pre-wedding stylings. To find out more about her work, check out her website and Facebook page and peruse through her portfolio!

    It’s such a small world as I actually know Victoria and am still deciding either between her and another recommended make up artist for my big day. This free session will definitely help me make my decision (if I’m the lucky chosen one).

    I would like to have one done because it’s so confusing learning about cool/warm types of skin tone when you’re asian (like me) and I think Victoria would be good at letting me know what colours would work with me!

    It would be fantastic to experience having my face done up *properly* by a pro! I’d love to break out of my regular makeup routine, which has gotten quite simple, and learn something new. (A fresh look applied with know-how and steady hands!) It would definitely be an extra special treat for some upcoming engagement photos.
