Healing with Makeup

Our founder, LeiLani, is one of few trained Paramedical Corrective Makeup Artists and Scar-Re-Pigmentation Tattoo Specialists in Canada. The paramedical use of tattooing and Camouflage makeup is a highly specialized field in which LeiLani is a nationally recognized expert. Clients are frequently referred to her by prominent Plastic Surgeons, and Dermatologists. She has 25 years behind her volunteering and working within the Burn/Trauma and Cancer community.

Through Sweet LeiLani Cosmetics and her “Face the Future” program, LeiLani has helped raise awareness around the importance of healing patients inside and out. Her pro bono work and sponsorship programs include British Columbia Cancer Society, Firefighter Burn Fund, Burn Camps and Lupus Camps.

I have told everyone I know about Sweet LeiLani. I love the fact that your colors work for everyone, therefore; you don’t have to know what you’re doing when blending colors.
