THE STORY OF
I am Lesley-Ann Maltar, and I am a Makeup & Hair Artist. Over the last year or so, I have been working hard to bring Cornerstone Makeup & Hair Artistry to life. I maybe a newer artist to the industry, but deep down I've been an artist years. If we want to go back to the beginning, the word 'cornerstone' by definition means 'an important quality or feature on which a particular thing depends or is based.' Fun Fact: It is also the meaning of family name to which I was born into. Beauty is now the cornerstone of my business. Makeup and hair are my art.
Everyone has their own interpretation of what beauty means to them. To me, true beauty starts with the inside. As a makeup and hair artist, I use beauty and hair products, tools and tricks to help enhance that beauty on the outside in order to make people shine and be seen as the best version of themselves.
In the summer of 2019, I left the corporate world to go after my passion for makeup and hair design. I actually started perusing this career years ago prior to being swept into the world of restaurant marketing. After much thought and discussion with family and friends (and a LOT of self-talk and prayer) I went back to school to earn my diploma in Advanced Fashion & Bridal Makeup Artistry. I was also honoured to receive a Creative Artistry Award from my school at graduation. I've had some amazing opportunities and met great artists along the way who have shown me a new direction.
Every day I'm focusing on learning, growing, and improving my craft so that I can bring you the best of me as an artist, and make you - my clients (and future clients), feel like the best version of yourself. I can offer you looks anywhere from classic and timeless to trendy and even more avant garde. I listen to each client to make sure they get what they came in for and so much more. Get ready to look and feel stunning!
