When I hear the words “Canadian Art,” I think of the words unique, experience, stories, expression, culture, and growth. As a people, we Canadians are immigrants, a mosaic of people that come from all over the world bringing their cultures, religions, practices, values, views, and lifestyles to our country. From this, we have shared our stories and learned from theirs as they have ours.
Ever since I can remember, art has fascinated me. It has always been part of my life, but I never thought about its history—how certain ideas and movements came about and what was the artist's inspiration. Now being a student of the arts, the opportunity to research what has always fascinated me has pushed me to find out the base of all my curiosity.
To me, lipsticks/lip products are one of the few makeup items that can complete an outfit, transform your look from a 0 to a 100, or can help bring out a side of you you never even knew you had.
Makeup is a powerful art form and tool of self expression and that can transform us into different people, who we are or who we wish to be. In my case, makeup was my safe place.
