Makeup & Hair
For world-renowned artist Grace Lee, it has always been about the work. Just as any visionary artist has a trademark style, Grace has a recognizable aesthetic, which is consistently ahead of the curve. It is this creativity that sets her apart, along with the confidence that comes with 20 years in the business that has made her a household name and a favourite among clients and celebrities alike.
Grace began as a Professional Makeup Artist for MAC Cosmetics, while attending university. What began as a part-time job, quickly proved to be her passion. She began educating hundreds of in-house makeup artists for MAC, which then evolved into the highly coveted position of Senior Artist for the Global Pro Team. In this role, she helped to build the MAC brand through high-profile media events across the globe for more than 5 years.
She is often requested by celebrity clients, which include the likes of Justin Timberlake, Drake, and Eva Longoria amongst many others. She has supported a team of global artists backstage at New York, Milan and Paris shows, skillfully bringing art to life for international labels. Her work has been featured in countless magazines, including W, Nylon, FASHION, Flare, Elle Canada, Flaunt, Taiwan Vogue, and Shanghai Elle.
In 2012, Grace was announced as the Official Makeup Artist for Maybelline NY in Canada - the most coveted contract in the country - and a position which she is very proud to hold. As Spokesperson, she is often found in front of the camera on live TV, and backstage at Fashion Week, where she designs and keys at least 35 shows for the week. This platform has allowed her creativity to flourish, as she creates the looks and sets the trends – something that she was clearly always meant to do.
