Makeup Artist . Etiquette Consultant
Hi my name is Vanessa……I am thrilled you’ve stopped in to visit my Makeup and Etiquette blog – “White Sand and Yellow Diamond!”
I am an island beauty from one of the 700 archipelagic islands of The Bahamas that stretch 100,000 square miles in the Atlantic Ocean, named Inagua. This island woman loves the sounds of the Junkanoo beat (an annual festival held every Boxing Day, and New Years in The Bahamas), going for long morning walks by the aquamarine water, feeling the warm white sand between my toes and being fierce on the tennis court. But, I gave that all up for a life with the man of my dreams (my husband) in Canada! It’s all good …….he’s worth it.
Mine is definitely a love and passion for beauty, grace & elegance! I received a Diploma in Makeup Art with Airbrush in Toronto ON; and I am a MAC Cosmetics Pro Member. I’m also trained and certified in Etiquette consulting, and am a member of The Etiquette Institute in St. Louis, MO (I hang these certificates right next to my MBA Degree). After more than a decade as a Senior Fund Administrator, I’m relieved to compliment my work in the corporate world of offshore banking, and doing what’s truly enjoyable as President & Founder of Studio 67 Makeup Artistry International, Ltd and The Etiquette Society International, Ltd.
FINALLY…..I can be the Diva I was destined to be!!!
