Would totally recommend Monika for bridal make up and hair! She performed a daily look for my wedding day i absolutely loved and was complimented a lot! She was flexible to arrive very early in the morning to accommodate our busy schedule. Thank you!Sent on 26/10/2017

Monika, Carla, and Vivian did hair and make-up for my whole wedding party. Monika spent a long time at my trial looking at pictures and listening to figure out what I was looking for. I was happy with the trial and it was duplicated perfectly on my wedding, My make-up was beautiful while still looking natural. All 3 were super fun and nice to be around which is very important for your wedding morning.Sent on 26/11/2017

I picked Monika based on her reviews on this site- on account of her competency as an artist, but also the reviews of professionalism and personability. Man, I had a very different experience than the majority of reviewers (weird, right?). First of all, Monika was great by email at the start, but then after sending me her invoice (two weeks before the wedding) she seemed to have disappeared. I inquired as to why the bridesmaid makeup costs were different than those listed on her website and have still, to date, not received an email back. I paid the invoice, hoping that she was just waiting to make sure that I was a confirmed client (I know vendors can get insanely busy mid-summer). Still no emails back to questions. I began to worry, and asked my sister to be a backup in case something happened, though I still assumed that things had just picked up.Sent on 21/08/2017
Then, at 5am the morning of my wedding, I received a text from an unknown number telling me it was Monika and that she was sending a stranger, not listed on her website, instead. I could not believe it. Let me tell you- anxiety and stress can eat you alive the week of your wedding, let alone the day-of. I was so sick to my stomach over it that I had to go straight to Shopper's Drug Mart to get Pepto the minute it opened that day and had to rethink the look for my whole face. I had to sit through my hair appointment wondering how I could've been so stupid as to pay over $200 to some internet stranger for something so important.
Bear in mind, the stranger who showed up that day ended up being an incredible makeup artist and a rad lady, so I tried to refrain from sharing this horror story as a review. But then two weeks later, today, I get an email from Monika (the first email since I paid my invoice) encouraging me to review her. Well, here it is. I hope no one else has this kind of unnecessary drama.

My experience with Blushing Beauty was great. Carla was professional, experienced and we spent most of the trial and day-of chatting and joking while she was working. I was extremely happy with my hair and make-up and Carla checked in to make sure I was happy with the progress along the way. She did a great job and made it a very pleasant and comfortable experience. I would definitely recommend Blushing Beauty and Carla.Sent on 25/08/2017

Monika from blushing beauty did my hair and makeup for my wedding this past July. Monika did an incredible job and styled my hair and makeup the exact way I dreamed of! She was friendly and easy to work with. She was professional and on time. I can't wait to use her for my future maternity photos! Thanks to Blushing Beauty!Sent on 23/08/2017

Yes to Blushing Beauty! Monika is a true artist. She knew what I wanted before the wedding trial run and then at the trial-I was floored! I looked and felt so beautiful. I Recommend their talents because of her. She made me feel comfortable and made me look amazing. She's helpful in a lot of ways before, during and after-which is above and beyond! Totally worth contacting and totally unforgetable!Sent on 24/10/2017

I have nothing but amazing things to say about Blushing Beauty. Svitlana and Monika did my hair and makeup for my wedding day and both came out so perfect! They were so professional and fun! They always listened to my needs and made sure I was always happy. I did a trial run with them before the big day and it was 100% worth it! If you are looking for someone to do your hair and makeup for your wedding, look no further! Blushing Beauty has got your back :) Thank you ladies!!!!!!Sent on 29/01/2017
I just had my Make-up trial with Monika! She was professional, organized, patient and really personalized the experience. She knew exactly what I wanted, and offered valuable advice to help make the look I had chosen even better! I could not be any happier than I am right now! I am looking forward to having her work with me and my bridesmaids on my wedding day!!!!!! Thank-you!!!!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!Sent on 11/09/2016
