About the Artist: Linda Xuan

 

     Linda Xuan is an Ottawa-based freelance makeup artist with over four years of professional experience (and many more years as an amateur). She was certified back in July, 2014 by the Canadian Beauty College, and has been passionate about makeup since she bought her first lipstick back in the eighth grade.

     Trained in mediums such as watercolour and oil painting since childhood, Linda incorporates the skills she's gained as a traditional artist into her makeup application. She strives to continue learning and takes pride in being unafraid to experiment with bold colours, graphic lines, and out of the box looks.

     As an avid lover of sci-fi, fantasy, and above all, horror movies, Linda aspires to one day establish a career in theatre, film, and SFX makeup. In the meantime, she is continuously looking for oppourtunities to hone her craft and collaborate with like-minded creatives and artists. She is daring, resourceful, and more than a little eccentric - hence the name Strange Beauty.
