My name is Maria Velve, a certified make-up artist and green beauty expert on a mission to:
Connect you with clean and effective products made right here in Canada, and Teach you how to use them in a way that makes you feel fresh, confident and – most importantly – like yourself.
I do this through makeup consultations, lessons and application in Toronto (and beyond) an online shop where you’ll find a curated selection of my favourite make-up and self-care products and tons of free resources and reviews.
All of the products I use, recommend and sell are made in Canada from natural (and often local) ingredients – some using recipes passed down through generations. I recommend only those I’ve thoroughly researched, tested and fallen in love with.
