For my (new) husband and I, one of the biggest factors we were looking for when searching for wedding vendors was responsiveness. You could hire the fanciest stylist and most well-known makeup artist in Toronto, but what if they take 10 days to reply to your email or only give you the time of day a week before your wedding? That might not be a problem to some couples, but it was to us. It actually took awhile for us to find a makeup artist in Toronto who a) didn't have certain demands regarding travel, packages, etc., b) didn't take 5 days to respond to us, c) actually showed genuine compassion and interest in their work and craft, and for their client.
I met Daniela a few months before our wedding, and knew she was the one! Out of over 20 makeup artists in Toronto that I contacted, she was the only one who suggested an in-person meeting to talk about my wedding. Honestly, I can't even express how much I appreciated that. She came to our meeting prepared, actually took the time to take notes and understand what I'd be wearing, the look and style I was going for, etc. I knew from the very start that, with Daniela, I was in very good, talented, and responsible hands. And as a bride, trust in your vendor is so key - and I trusted Daniela fully!
On our wedding day, Daniela came early and prepared, and was totally unfazed when my mom changed her mind about what she wanted. She is the epitome of creativity, talent, and professionalism.
And most importantly - I loved the look she gave me on our wedding day! She can do so many types of looks, and can totally diversify if you ask her to. Show her a picture of what you want - and she'll replicate it. She is so incredibly talented, and you absolutely can't go wrong with choosing her to do your makeup, for whatever occasion, wedding or otherwise!
Thank you so much, Daniela, for being a part of our wedding day! Her service is an experience beyond 5 stars.
Barbara, your thoughtful review means a lot, I am beyond happy for you and feel very thankful to have been a part of your big day

Daniela was amazing. I started looking for makeup services pretty late and came across a number of positive reviews about her. After my initial consultation with Daniela, my mom and I knew that she would do an awesome job. She is very nice and made us feel very comfortable. Furthermore, Daniela was very accommodating during the whole process and would respond to emails and texts very promptly. She even helped recommend another person that could provide hair services when a previous vendor backed out.
As someone who doesn't wear a lot of makeup, I only knew that I wanted a more neutral look and I definitely trusted her with a lot of decision making. My makeup trial went smoothly and she was kind enough to make some tweaks & adjustments for the final look on my wedding day.
On the day-of, Daniela and her assistant, Marisa did makeup for 4 bridesmaids, 4 additional family members and myself. Everyone looked amazing and our makeup lasted all day & night (9am - 2am).
She made me feel very beautiful and I hope to have the opportunity to work with her again. Thank you Daniela!
Thank you for the lovely review Theresa :) I would love the opportunity to work with you again soon, and your mom too! Congratulations!!

My bridesmaids and I loved having our makeup done by Daniela. From the first meeting to wedding day, she was wonderful to work with. I love how incredibly detailed she was in understanding what you like and don't like, and she definitely takes your preferences into account. I normally don't like wearing false lashes either but she applied them in such a way that they felt weightless and looked beautiful! No eye irritation either. Between me and my bridesmaids there were many different skin tones and she knew how to flatter them beautifully.
I also did my bridal makeup trial the day of my engagement shoot to see how I liked the look in photos and it turned out incredible! Daniela was also very keen on me giving her feedback (both during the trial and after) so that she could tweak it accordingly for the wedding day. I would highly recommend her and am so happy I chose her for my makeup on my wedding day! Thank you so much Daniela!
Thank you so much Saira, it was wonderful to work with you as well. You and your bridesmaids were so easy going and relaxed, it was a great day :) xx Daniela

Daniela was my golden goose! I was desperate to find a make up artist who would make me feel and look beautiful and i was so very fortunate to find Daniela who ensured that I felt and looked my best. She is a trained professional who has studied the art of make up. During our trial, she took a lot of time and care to really figure out what worked best on me. I was very pleased and my bridal party was equally happy w their looks as well. She is fantastic!

I worked with Daniela briefly a million years ago before she got started on her career in beauty, and we had loosely stayed in touch over the years. As soon as we scheduled my wedding I knew I had to go to her for my makeup. I'd been watching her work and her website evolve and grow, and I was, of course, excited to see her again!
My makeup trial was.... well I was a bit in shock at first. It was gorgeous, and I looked like me, but so much more and so much better!!!!
On the day of, Daniela did all my girls' makeup, there were four bridemaids who all look very different and different skin tones and styles. She managed to create a gorgeous coordinated look that still suited all the girls and what they wanted to look like!!! My sister, the porcelain doll in particular was a stunner with her lashes and gorgeous makeup.
I'm looking forward to going to see Daniela for lessons on brows and eyes, since she does such a simple, yet effective job!
Thank you so much Daniela, we had a really great time with you, and you did a stunning job!!!

I was running out of time trying to find a makeup artist, even worried that I wasnt going to be able to have one at all. My cousins had contracted Daniela before and asked me if I'd like to have her for my wedding. I thought she had done a cute job on my cousins so I said yes. Going into meeting Daniela, I was feeling nevrous, seeing that I had never really had any professional make up done on me or had any extra makeup on my face that wasn't eyeliner or mascara.
I ended up doing a trail make up and Daniela was awesome. She made sure that I was comfy, and would make sure that she wasn't harming/hurting me.
She kept my wedding day make up light and cute. With all the running around I didn't have time to take a proper picture of myself on my wedding day, but I did take a trail picture.
Daniela makes you feel S comfortable as possible, almost as if you're just talking to someone you've been comfortable with for a long time. The end result was just perfect, and it lasred all night long.
She also made putting fake lashes seem like it was a usual thing. She explained how it would feel and sure enough, she was right. She mentioned that after it would feel like you'd have nothing on which is what happened. I got compliments from everyone how how I looked at the end of the day. The close up wasn't the wedding day makeup. I hadn't had time to take a proper picture. The close up is the trail day one. The wedding day makeup was a lot better

Daniela was amazing! She was fast, flexible and very pleasant to deal with. I have a very oily skin texture, and her products/technique were so impeccable, that my make-up looked fresh from the ceremony right upto the last dance. I received so many compliments on how great the make-up looked. Best part - no breakouts whatsoever!! That's a huge win for me, because my complexion still looked good for the honeymoon pictures! I would highly recommend Daniela, not only for her amazing talent, but also for being a very calming presence on the big day.
Thanks for the kind words Avon! You and your mother and sister all looked so beautiful. I was honoured to be a part of your big day xx Daniela

Daniela was absolutely amazing . She listened to what I wanted and I looked amazing . She used good quality products and my make up lasted all day . She is definitely my go to makeup artist now forever and I would recommend a her to everybody I know .
Thanks Sarah! Looking forward to seeing you again soon xx Daniela
Daniela is fantastic. She listened carefully to my needs and was able to translate my vision into reality...something a lot of make-up artists are unable to do effectively. The products are high quality and the looks lasts! I was extremely happy with her.
Thanks Melaina! You are so easy to work with and a great communicator. I had a great time working with you and your bridal party. And thanks again for the referral!
Sarah Steele, Married on 24/09/2016
My experience getting my makeup done by Daniela was extremely pleasant and positive; not only was she very friendly and warm towards me (asking me details about my life, and complimenting some of my facial features, etc.), but the end result was a testament to her expertise in the field.
Thanks Sarah! All of you girls looked amazing, and I cannot wait to see the professional pictures. Kaavya sent me a really sweet email afterwards, and it made my day :)
