Hi, my name is Lina.
I'm an award-winning makeup artist. I specialize in brides who want the glamorous, yet natural look.
What that means is this: picture Eastern and Western makeup. Now put them together: A little smokey eyes and glowing skin. Subtle contour and natural-looking highlight. Makeup that is neither too heavy nor too light.
I do makeup that is all about balance and beauty. Some call it "Lebanese". Some call it "European".
I've been a makeup artist for ten years, mostly in Dubai, where I built an incredible bridal business. I loved every minute of it, but then realized I could add more to make my clients' look come together even better. So, in 2017, I moved back to Canada and became a hairdresser.
Now I do both: hair and makeup.
I am based in Toronto and my mission is to continue to provide classy, timeless, red carpet hair and makeup services. If you are getting married or attending an event, hit the button below and let's talk about how to make your vision a reality.
To my favourite makeup artist: Thank you so so much for all your hard work! Everyone was raving about my makeup! Love you so much!

-Nisreen Al-Khatib, bride

-Nadine AlBdair, TV personality
