ABOUT THE ARTIST
Starrly’s ambition sparked after years of flipping through fashion magazines and daydreaming of being a makeup artist. At the young age of 18 she set off from her small First Nations community to pursue her dream. Since 2009 Starrly trained at leading makeup school Blanche Macdonald Centre, attended celebrity masterclasses with artists such as Mario Dedivanovic, worked at MAC Cosmetics for several years, and has done makeup for countless weddings, events, photoshoots, and music videos. Starrly strived to hone her craft and is now renowned for her eye catching looks. In 2016 Starrly's love of beauty lead her to the world of Permanent Makeup, earning several certificates and traveling as far as Europe for training. She was a quick learner and excelled in the industry at a fast rate, becoming highly sought after for her flawless technique.
Over the past decade Starrly built a name and following for her immaculate artistry, with an impressive portfolio and thousands of applications and procedures under her belt. Starrly currently works as a Freelance Makeup Artist in Edmonton Alberta, is an artist and instructor at Brownude Permanent Makeup Studio, co-owner of Pink Mink Lashes - a luxury line of cruelty-free lashes, and most recently she launched her sustainable clothing brand Baddie on the Block, designing reworked streetwear for women.
Starrly hopes to lead by example, and inspire Indigenous women and youth to just go for it and pursue their passions. She believes your mind is a powerful tool, along with dedication you can achieve powerful things and create your dream life!
