professional makeup and body artist
I am Alina Sauve.
I grew up in rural Ottawa, Greely to be exact. I never thought I'd be a makeup artist, or any type of artist in fact. I grew up driving four wheelers and playing sports in the mud with boys. Since high school I had gained a passion for makeup, being bullied for my terrible skin and not having many female friends lead me to explore the world of cosmetics. After high school I realized psychology wasnt for me, and dropped out of Carleton University to pursue a different career. I spent almost two years working full time worrying If I would ever go back to school. Over this time I practiced my skills and became a perfectionist with my own makeup, and never realized the potential sitting right in front of me. It was my boyfriend Steve who came to me and convinced me that I should go to school, and that I had what it took to be a professional artist.
Within a month I was accepted into Versailles Academy of Makeup, Hair and Aesthetics. I completed two courses and received two different diplomas and certifications, Professional Makeup Artistry and Theatrical Makeup Artistry. After graduation I worked hard for a year attending fashion shows, working on theatre productions, and getting my name out there. I eventually ending up appearing on Rogers Television for special effects make up.
Today, almost two years later, I have work in more than one film and have multiple magazine publications. I have also been showcased as a RAW: Natural Born Artist and plan on expanding my services to Montreal and Toronto. The most important things to me are my family, friends, clients and fans as I would not be here without all of your support. So thank you.
