Leslie-Ann Thomson
 / Maquillage & Coiffure

Leslie-Ann Thomson realized early during her studies of Haute Couture that makeup has as much of an impact as fashion itself in generating the next big thing. Self taught, she transitioned into makeup, and began her career working for brands including Nars, Yves Saint Laurent and Laura Mercier. Thomson’s understanding of the inextricable link between high fashion and makeup, and how to create synergy between the two, has made her one of the most sought-after makeup artists in Canada. She has worked with notable photographers Max Abadian, Richard Bernardin, Maude Arsenault and Jorge Camarotti.

Thomson’s strongest commercial work is known especially for her understanding of how to achieve flawless skin, she applies her talent and her brushes to major clients including ALDO, Le Chateau, Simons, Virgin Mobile, Marcelle and Annabelle.

Beyond the pages of fashion magazines and the billboards of heavyweight commercial campaigns, Thomson's work spans artists, celebrities, musicians and designers alike. She has worked with Arcade Fire, Rad Hourani, Amber Rose, Grimes, Jay Baruchel, Band of Skulls and Melissa Auf Der Maur, among others.

Her work has been showcased in Elle Québec Magazine, Rolling Stone, Billboard, The Guardian, Bullett, New York Times Style, Madame Figaro, Nylon, and Dress to Kill, to name a few.

The artist never stops, she is a pop-culture fiend, finding inspiration in contemporary art, music and design.
