BOURGIE Cosmétique, & BOURGIE Artists founder, Kim Goodman, had a keen eye for Makeup & Beauty, which led her to do mini makeovers, & tweeze eyebrows for students at her high school. Her passion for Makeup continued, & led her to The School of Makeup Art , where she earned her Diploma, as a Beauty & Fashion + Special Effects Makeup Artist. Kim also received her certification for Style & Image Consulting, Hair for the Camera, Teaching Techniques, & Airbrush Makeup.
After graduating in 2005, Kim began freelancing in Toronto as a Professional Makeup & Hair Artist. She was represented by The Artist Group Ltd. in 2007, which shifted her focus into Artist Management.
In March of 2010, BOURGIE Artists was born, creating a new High Fashion incubator, for Toronto's freshest Artists. Kim changed gears, & took on her new role by Scouting, Developing, & Managing Makeup Artists, Hairstylists, & Fashion Stylists, along with Creating, & Directing many Editorial photo shoots.
“This undertaking really inspired Kim to take her brand to the next level...”
Seeing as the glass was half full, in September of 2012, Kim returned to The School of Makeup Art, to teach the Beauty & Fashion Course that she graduated from 7 years prior. For two years, she redeveloped the curriculum, & inspired another generation of Makeup Artists.
Steadily evolving, BOURGIE Artists sponsored Hair & Makeup, for Fashion Art Toronto Week in April of 2014. In April of 2016, Kim reunited with the Fashion Art Toronto Team, by coming on board as the Makeup Manager for the department. BOURGIE Artists, was also the sole Makeup sponsor in 2016. This undertaking really inspired Kim to take her brand to the next level by launching her own Cosmetic Line.
“Kim is also engulfed in the Social Media Marketing, & Advertising world...”
To date, Kim is no longer managing artists under the BOURGIE Artists umbrella. Rather, she has found a new passion which includes the photography, & editing of all the imagery associated with BOURGIE Cosmétique herself. Kim is also engulfed in the Social Media Marketing, & Advertising world.
This venture has really opened up Pandora's box of excellence, & Kim is creatively excited to see how Cosmétique will continue to unfold!
