About Gabby Vachon
Behind The Makeup
Gabby Vachon is a makeup and hair artist in Montreal and Toronto. She has been enamored with makeup ever since she saw Pat McGrath tell intricate stories on women’s faces while watching Fashion Television in high school. After years of recreating (or trying to come close to) Pat’s work, as well as becoming a walking encyclopedia for Lady Gaga’s various music video looks, she entered the working world of makeup by working at various cosmetics counters through her university career. After completing an Honors English Degree from Concordia University, Gabby dedicated her life to makeup and hair artistry, working for fashion retailers like SSENSE and Frank and Oak, beauty directing campaigns for LXR & Co, Jewlr, and Yoga Jeans, and being published in magazines like Latest, Sicky, Flanelle, One, and more than 20 others. She loves clean skin and soft glamour beauty as much as bright, colorful abstract editorial work; realizing a vision using various paints and powders feels like home.
Gabby now works as an ecommerce specialist at Bench. Canada, and pursues hair and makeup projects on the weekend.
On her off time you can find her eating too much popcorn during her weekly cinema dates with her husband, and prying her puppy Lola off the dishwasher.
