A solid reflection of my meticulously curated Pinterest board, I am known for my exquisite and dreamy approach to creation — gimme all the rose gold accents, vintage whitewash, and delicate florals. Post work, you can find me enjoying beautiful PNW adventures, or at least enjoying the view with crisp glass of bubbly in hand.
While I learned early on that self care would positively affected my self-perception and mood, I never imagined I would end up here. But since quitting my day job in pursuit of my own path, Beauty En Route has hardly been an accident! The essence of everything we do is a reflection of my creative vision and passion for raising the bar. Since attending makeup school at John Casablancas, I continue to pursue both beauty, business and photography classes to better serve each client I come across. Breaking down makeup's intimidating barriers and helping each person feel empowered by even the simplest of beauty tricks and a little self love is extremely rewarding. When I am not glowing up my next lovely lady, you can catch me daydreamin’ of where the future will take us!
The quickest way to my heart is through a photo of your fur-baby.
My family nicknamed me “Roo,” from Winnie the Pooh—they know me as ‘the busy bee!’
Taking on new creative passion projects is kinda my thing. I sometimes get carried away, but I don’t mind that because it feeds my creative soul.
I am most passionate about vintage finds, fashion and photography—in addition to makeup, of course!
I love Audrey Hepburn and everything Tiffany’s—the Beauty En Route Parlour is even named Audrey.
In my free time, you can catch me recovering after a long day of wedding makeup in a bubble bath with lush bath bombs—my secret obsession.
Caesar cocktails are my favorite and I order them even if it’s not socially appropriate - I don’t think fancy restaurants appreciate my pairing skills.
My favorite color is not rose gold (shocker!), but creamsicle orange because it enhances a tan.
I love midnight snacks and often fall asleep with them right beside me in bed—I may or may not roll over to nibble mid-sleep.
Hi I’m Krista, the client relations guru, our team’s right hand gal and the Project Coordinator behind Beauty En Route. I help you and our team plan and organize so your morning beauty services go off without a hitch. I have always been the go-to planner with my family and friends and ever since I saw a bride walk down the aisle during my first shift as a Wedding Day Assistant 7 years ago, I knew that I wanted to work in the Wedding Industry forever. I have a passion for planning, organizing, details, and love helping couples create the day they have dreamed about. I love making others happy and when I joined the Wedding Industry, I saw how much joy I could bring to a couple on their Wedding Day. I always dreamed of owning my own business and in October 2019, I started my own Wedding Photography and Videography company called Lumina Weddings and Events Inc. I have an unprecedented attention to detail with an amazing memory and love everything about weddings and am here to answer questions, plan timelines and ensure you have a fantastic experience.
When I’m not working, you can often find me traveling and exploring places I’ve never been. My favourite spots so far have been Australia and the Cook Islands! I also love animals and am hoping to get a mini sheepadoodle sometime next year! I look forward to getting to know you and making your wedding day extra special :)
Most days you can find me practicing fantasy makeup for Instagram or taking part in photoshoots. I love serving the world by making it a more beautiful place. Creating art through photoshoots, coaching my friends in beauty and special effects, and helping clients find simple answers to their beauty qualms. I am most grateful for the opportunity to help my clients find the colors that compliment their skin tones, eye, and hair color, and enhance their natural beauty. Knowledge is made to be shared!
My passion for makeup artistry began when I was a dancer and I would practice elaborate makeup on myself and peers for competitions. This love of makeup application only continued throughout my teens until I made the decision to move from Terrace, BC to Vancouver for professional education. For bridal makeup, I love achieving a fresh dewy and complexion with a beautiful lash. I honed my style and skills in makeup when I attended school at John Casablancas (JCI). During my time at JCI, I was awarded top student of my graduating class for both my technique and workmanship. When I’m not busy doing makeup, you can catch me baking, cooking, and spending time with family and friends.
I'm a Vancouver based makeup artist with an appreciation for clean beauty and a clean environment. My passion for nature comes out when scooting around Vancouver with my dog, caring for my indoor plant forest, and using vegan + cruelty-free products on my clients. My specialty is low-key glam makeup, making you into your best self while making sure you still feel like yourself. This attitude aligns with my lash services, which allow you to wake up feeling like the badass beauty you are, with minimal daily effort.
My lashes have been featured on many blogs and my makeup and hair have been published in tens of fashion magazines. When I take a break from work I opt to spend more time with my boyfriend, going for walks and soaking up all the natural beauty this planet has to offer us!
Before living in BC, I practiced makeup in the film industry for many years in LA. I have always loved aesthetics and my strive for perfection sets me apart from other stylists. In my mind, there is no "good enough." I am very passionate about creativity and pushing my learnings of technique and practical application. I take a unique approach with each client to find a style that fits with their features and reflects their personality. Since makeup school, I have found myself focusing more and more in the bridal industry and am loving glamming ladies up for their happiest day!
On any given day, you can find me adventuring with my dog, tending to my house plants, or snuggling up to watch a movie. I’m passionate about being an active listener and pursuing all of my talents. When Iʼm not busy making women look and feel their best, you can catch me grabbing a bite with my family and friends, snapping pics—I am definitely a hobbyist photographer—or reorganizing my makeup kit. Besides being a hair and makeup artist, I have an obsession with painting and being out in nature. I live in Olympic Village with my boyfriend and my mini Australian Shepard, Otter. Heʼs a cuddle bug with a huge personality, and he's too smart for his own good!
I’m Jessica, but you can call me Jess. I've lived in the lower mainland my entire life, but I will always be in awe of the beauty of BC. My passion for aesthetics doesn't stop there—I appreciate killer fashion, Insta-worthy sunrises and sunsets, eye-catching architecture, bright bouquets, and the nostalgia of a home-cooked meal on my plate. When I have the opportunity, I’m a sucker for visiting popular cafes. Having worked in the coffee industry for years prior to becoming a makeup artist, I consider myself quite the critic when sipping a fresh espresso! I have a slight obsession with researching iconic celebrities and historical events. I am known to jump down the youtube rabbit hole to find documentaries on anyone or anything that intrigues me. This research brings about my personal love for pulling inspiration from the ’60s and the ’90s, but the world today excites me, and I find more than ever it encourages artists to create innovative and barrier-breaking beauty.
I love getting to know my clients. I do not consider myself a shy person and I am always down to chit chat about life, travel, a good show, horoscopes, and what’s trending! I’m so looking forward to having you in my makeup chai—so, prepare your case: Leo DiCaprio, cuter back then, or now?
My passion is making the beauty industry accessible to every babe out there. Most days you can spot my bright red hair running around Sephora reppin' Anastasia Beverly Hills and sharing my favorite tips and tricks with customers. When I'm not making my brides look flawless, I'm sharing those tips and tricks with family and friends—makeup never stops in my world! It’s my mission to make sure everyone feels confident in their look and my specialty, eyebrows, is often the most transformative piece. When clients want to bump up that glam, I'm there for them with my side hustle creating stunning eyelashes. From natural and glowing to glam and glitter, I want to make sure you love your look and can achieve it every day.
Step in my chair, I can't wait to match your style and elevate your confidence for your big day. And if you're dying to hear more about me aside from makeup, I love this planet and care about our environment and all its little creatures. Did you know most makeup bottles can be recycled, and some brands even take them back in exchange for giveaways? Win-win!
My nickname is "Em" and I am all about hair, makeup, and lashes! Graduating from Blanche Macdonald for makeup, I am passionate about helping women get their makeup done without feeling too “done-up." Showing them how to get the perfect natural glow that remains within their comfort zone is rewarding. That being said, I do not shy from the full glam look and get excited when I get to take makeup to another level!!
I am lucky to help my clients achieve the boost of confidence that they desire for their special occasions! When I am not working on clients, you can catch me at the gym, coffee shop, or cooking with my boyfriend. We love living in downtown, it is such a change of pace from my hometown of Bozeman, Montana. Fun fact about me is I have a bachelors degree in violin performance!
I am fuelled by coffee and my passion for guiding clients out of their comfort zone. My goal is to make new beauty trends approachable and fun, making the biggest glam looks accessible. Clients should feel confident in their own skin, no matter the occasion and I believe it’s my mission to help make that happen. Red lips, winged liner, sharp contour or glass skin... Whatever you are working towards, I can get you there.
My time off is never really ‘off.’ In my spare time you can find me in my lash & makeup studio trying out new techniques and experimenting with designs! I love special effects makeup and my current favourite is playing around with anything to do with skulls!
Hi, I’m Abby and I absolutely thrive on everything artistic! I love channeling my skills into helping clients feel their best and educating them on easy and effective techniques. You don’t need to be an artist to feel like one at home and the beauty industry should be accessible for all!
Being a special effects makeup artist and licensed hair stylist means I can fulfill my passion at work, but my love for artistic expression doesn’ stop there. After hours, I can be spotted outside riding my bike, hiking, practicing yoga, or out for an evening stroll enjoying the sunset and gathering inspiration for my makeup and hair, drawing, piano and violin songs, sculpting, cooking and writing!
This passion has driven me to win several awards, including four Skills Canada awards, first place at ABA Canada, finalist at Eufora Makeover Madness Competition, second place at the BLO 3.0 competition, and eleventh place at OMC in Paris, France.
I am passionate about our beautiful planet and exploring every inch of it. I run on coffee and I am constantly looking for a new adventure, in my neighbourhood or on another continent. To make sure there’s plenty left to explore for future generations, I do my part to care for the environment. Reduce, reuse, recycle!
The principals fit into my approach to beauty, too. I love achieving a dewy, fresh, natural look and believe every face is lovely. My job is simply to magnify beauty that is already present... and maybe add a smoking hot red lipstick while I’m at it. This approach has also led me to my certifications in lash extensions and facials, keeping my clients looking their best even when they are makeup free! I know I’ve done my job when clients look at their reflection in the mirror and smile because they can still see themselves, just elevated!
After hours, you can catch me living my best bohemian life, enjoying arts, food, coffee and culture, staying young and free.
Through the challenge of being a self-taught hair stylist, I grew a devotion for continued education and am constantly practicing and spreading my knowledge. I am an avid believer in community over competition and that is why fostering a team is such an important piece of my business!
