My name is Meg and welcome to Fanciful Impressions! I’m a makeup artist based in Toronto with a passion for all things vintage. On Fanciful Impressions, you will find vintage makeup tutorials, DIY projects, recipes, reflections of bygone eras, and short stories through some of the historical characters I’ve created through makeup artistry.
Writing has always been a big part of my life. From to-do lists that sometimes feel never ending, to short stories, and goal setting; putting my thoughts to paper has always felt therapeutic.
I love the stories that are told and shared when we discover something from the past. Be it a family heirloom, an old recipe or a fashion trend from a specific era – there is always an inspiring story to tell and something to learn. When I made the commitment to pursue makeup artistry, it seemed intuitive for my focus to be in vintage and period piece makeup.
