As a teenager, Amy Pedersen of Amy Pedersen Makeup & Hair developed a love for makeup. Her older sister would buy her products, which she thought was cool. Then, on one of her birthdays, someone bought her the Bobbi Brown Teenage Beauty book, which she read nonstop. Her founding understanding of makeup stems from Bobbi Brown's advice. Now, she wants to create a perfect wedding day look for you. Along with her talented team of artists, Amy will take care of you; all you need to do is enjoy your wedding day. Amy and her assistants are mobile, so while she is based out of White Rock, British Columbia, she is willing to travel and is available for events on the mainland, the islands, and further.

Services offered

Amy offers many services for her brides, as well as makeup application and hairstyling for bridesmaids, brides' mothers, flower girls, and grooms. She also includes trials for brides, bridesmaids, and mothers of brides. Her Bridal Package includes the following:

  • Day-of hairstyle and makeup application
  • Light eyebrow grooming
  • False eyelash application
  • A travel kit for lip touch-ups

In addition, she also offers a D.I.Y Bride Package, which is great for destination brides or brides with a budget. In this package, you have a personal one-on-one lesson before the wedding to achieve your wedding look yourself. This typically takes three to four hours. The D.I.Y. Package includes the following:

  • One-on-one makeup and hair lesson
  • Bridal profile
  • Face chart
  • Notes to help you on your wedding day
  • A list of makeup used by artist

How they work

In order to understand your vision for your wedding day, Amy believes it is important to meet with each other and get to know one another. You get to share what you like and ask questions at this meeting. Then, Amy will provide a preview, which will give you the opportunity to take photos of yourself of how you will look on your wedding day and see how long the makeup lasts. Typically, the preview for bridal makeup takes an hour, while bridal hair previews take about two hours. As a rule of thumb, it is always helpful to have copies of your inspiration photos, as well as images of your dress, bridesmaids' dresses, the flowers you'll be using, fabric swatches, and pictures of the venue.

Other services

Along with wedding services, she also provides packages for other events. Her hair and makeup skills can be booked for the following:

  • Gentlemen's Package (male pampering with beard maintenance, nail care)
  • Engagement Package (bride receives makeup application and simple hairstyling; groom receives light concealing, beard maintenance, nail care)
  • Girls Night In (learn tips from a makeup pro with your ladies)

Amy did a make-up lesson with me as I will be doing my own make-up at my wedding.
She was SUPER helpful and made me feel very confident about doing it on the day of my wedding. I have a list of products that she sent along and I am excited about practicing until the big day. She was very attentive and listened to what I wanted, plus she is super nice!!!

Amy was absoultey wonderful to work with for my wedding this past December. She did such an amazing job on my makeup, and really worked with me to achieve the look I was going for. We had fun doing the trial session before my bridal shower. It was a great way to try it out first. Amy also did makeup for 3 bridesmaids and my Mother, who all looked beautiful. My best friend is very specific about how she likes her makeup done, and actually took a picture of her eyes after Amy worked her magic so she could try to replicate the look. I would suggest Amy to anyone with their big day coming up - it's a great way to relax for a bit on a day that is quite emotional and busy! Thanks Amy, for making me look gorgeous for my wedding.

Amy was and is a joy to work with. Her joyful personality, makeup and hair skills and spirit of partnership in working to make me beautiful for my day, took away my stress and concern and allowed me to be beautiful all day without worrying about my makeup and hair which survived a day of heavy rain. It was an amazing gift to me.
Thank you Amy!!!!

Amy and her assistant did a wonderful job doing hair and makeup for me, my four bridesmaids, my Mom and my Mother-In-Law for my wedding. They were both really friendly and got everyone done in a timely manner. It was so nice to be able to have fun and relax while getting ready at home before the ceremony. Everyone (including myself) loved their makeup/hairstyles and I would have Amy do my hair and makeup for any formal occasion in the future. Thanks Amy for making my wedding day extra special!

Amy was my makeup artist for our wedding in Vancouver last August and she did my hair and makeup for our rehearsal dinner too. I can’t recommend her enough. I wasn’t entirely sure what I wanted for the wedding day so she recommended pulling together photos from magazines and then went through them with me to discuss what I liked about them. She was happy to explore different looks with me at the trial and talked me through different options. I absolutely loved my makeup on the wedding day -it really was perfect. I would highly recommend using Amy for hair and/or makeup for any special event and will defiantly use her again for future special events.

Amy Pedersen did an excellent job of my hair and makeup as well as my bridesmaid, my mother and my mother in law. she was able to do all of us by herself in under six hours. her work was well appreciated. I especially loved how she stayed and followed me through our pictures session to make sure that my hair and makeup stayed beautiful! it was an amazing feeling to be pampered the whole day of my wedding. Thank you so much!

Amy was very good at listening to my needs. On the day of my wedding, not only I was happy with her work, but she also reduced the tension and stress allowing me to relax and focus on other parts of my wedding day.
