Welcome to the Besame Studio site, I am so happy you came for a visit.
My name is Brenda Lopez and I am the owner, lash tech and makeup artist behind Besame.
When I was younger my parents enrolled me in oil painting classes and I took to it very quickly. I was always encouraged to pursue opportunities within the field; art has always been a part of me. Years later this love for art transpired into a sincere interest and love for beauty industry. I really began to explore this new world in the early 2000's when I graduated from Conestoga with a cosmetic Techniques and Management Diploma. Over the past several years I have had an enormous amount of experience working with big name brands such as Benefits Cosmetics, Clinique, Smashbox cosmetics and Mac. I have practiced freelance Bridal, fashion show, and special event makeup artistry for many years and thoroughly enjoy doing it; every new face is like a blank canvas. From custom-fit formula combinations to shading the perfect blend of colours to suit each individual who I have the pleasure of working with, my artistic visions are always brought to life. This isn't work for me, it's an everlasting passion.
At the end of the day I love making women feel beautiful, strong and empowered in their own skin. To take ones beauty and enhance their unique features and see the look on their faces when they leave an appointment is what it is all about for me. I get to explore my creativity and brighten someones day.
As everyone knows, the beauty world is an incredibly innovative one to be in. Fashion, makeup and what they consider to be beauty, is ever changing. With the introduction of lash extensions, this was simply the cherry on top for me. They are the new love of my life, in and among many others and I am beyond happy that I took the leap of faith to explore this service. I'd be lying if I said I wasn't nervous when I began this new en devour, but my motivation and drive to perfect this craft could not be swayed. After a lot of hard work and perseverance I was able to master my craft and gain a solid client base who I adore, and who love what I do. I am a true testament that determination will drive you to your blessings in life.
Outside of the hours when I am perfecting my passion, I am a mother of two beautiful children and a wife to my highschool sweetheart. The retail industry is very time consuming and rarely forgiving, so in order to gain control, pursue what I love and enjoy more quality time with my family I saw this to be the perfect solution.
