Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Youtube channels to check out for Halloween makeup inspiration

October 27, 2020

Spooky season is definitely one of my favourites! To commemorate this, every year I love watching the talented makeup artists on Youtube work their Halloween creativity. The looks they come up with are amazing! I never try them out but I’m always so mesmerized by their talent! Whether you’re looking for Halloween makeup inspiration or just feel like being entertained by these jaw-dropping transformations, this list is for you: 

Nicole Guerriero 

I think Nicole is the queen of Halloween makeup! Every Halloween I’m blown away by her looks and editing. I recently watched her Genie look and was in awe!

Charisma Star

I love Charisma Star! The effort she puts into not only the makeup looks but also imbibing the world of the characters she recreates is amazing!

Kandee Johnson

Kandee has been one of my favourites for the longest time! Her Halloween makeup looks are so creative and beautifully executed. 

James Charles 

I think James Charles is amazing with blending and layering colours. If you watch the IT tutorial the way he used different shades of red to create dimension on his nose was fabulous! 


Her makeup looks are so realistic! I was amazed by the pulled-up skin look with just shadows and highlighter. She used such a cool technique!


Chrisspy is amazing! I was going through her page and she has done it all. She has Finding Dory, Buzz LightYear, Pikachu, and so many more cool transformations up on her channel! I love her creativity!


Dope2111 is so good at transformations! She will literally transform into any celebrity or character you can think of. I love watching her videos because she is so talented and entertaining to watch!

Desi Perkins 

Desi Perkins has some amazing tutorials up on her page! Her attention to detail does not go unnoticed because her creations are so life-like and creative. I loved in this video how she had her husband squint so she could get more pronounced and defined wrinkles around his eyes. So cool!

Victoria Lyn

I came across this video of Victoria doing a Sarah Sanderson look from Hocus Pocus and thought it was a spot-on recreation! Victoria does an amazing job with filming and creating Halloween looks, her videos are a treat to watch!

Happy Halloween!
