Queen of the Vintage Red Lip
Kerry was easy to work with and did an excellent job. She and her assistant did hair + makeup for me and makeup for the bridesmaids and moms. If you're looking for someone in the GTA who can nail that vintage style, she's the one. She successfully did her impressive signature look on my East Asian face, with bold red lips and all. Plus, she made sure everything was hygienic and took all the covid precautions, and she was a lot of fun to chat with. Flexible and reasonably price. Highly recommended for those who are going for a classy, retro look.Sent on 02/12/2020

Amazing Experience! Highly Recommend!
Kerry provided make-up and hair services for my sister, mother, future mother-in-law and myself for our backyard wedding on June 25, 2021. We are so happy that she was a part of our special day.
From my initial contact with Kerry, she was professional, responsive, and very personable. I appreciated her flexibility and compassion, particularly during these unprecedented times (COVID). Kerry was accommodating with the last minute time change (asking for an earlier start time), as well as with the additional request for make-up services for my future mother-in-law.
Kerry provided a hair and make-up trial the morning of my bridal shower, which turned out AMAZING! She seemed to know exactly what I was looking for. I received so many compliments! My mother-in-law even ended up requesting Kerry to do her make-up for our wedding day!
Not only is Kerry talented, she is truly great company! Her warm and easygoing personality makes you feel at ease (which is extremely helpful if you’re nervous before the big day and made the experience even more enjoyable).
Our hair and make-up held up well for both the outdoor bridal shower and backyard wedding, which were both on hot and humid days, despite lots of sweat and tears (and rain on our wedding day). Kerry provided a “touch up kit” with some great products if in the event it was needed.
Kerry took all the necessary COVID19 precautions and made us feel safe and comfortable at all times.
We had such a great experience working with Kerry. She made all of us ladies feel and look absolutely beautiful. I highly recommend her!!!

Kerry Made My Whole Wedding Party Look Perfect!
Kerry Riordan is an absolute gem. Just a really good person inside and out. I think her beauty services are a little newer, so her prices were incredibly reasonable compared to some of the others I looked at, but she doesn't compromise her talent. She and her assistant did hair and makeup for me, 5 bridesmaids, and two mothers for my wedding and they did a fantastic job. They were wonderfully patient, especially with the two moms who were more than a bit nervous to wear makeup. Kerry was really helpful for me, because I had no idea what I wanted to do when we first started talking and she helped me create a look that was PERFECT, I felt so great. The makeup was great quality too, it stood up well to really hot temperatures with lots of sweat and tears. Kerry was professional and friendly throughout, even with me running all over the place on the day of and us starting a few hours later than planned due to really bad traffic that none of us anticipated, everyone was ready on time for pictures and looked fantastic. I am so so glad we were able to work with Kerry, she made us all look great!Sent on 22/10/2018

Would Highly Recommend!
Kerry was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to end in helping my bridal party get ready for our big day! She was always prompt with her email responses, and flexible with requests. She came over for our trial make-up session a month before the wedding, which was very helpful in coming upon a look we were happy with, not to mention that she got along fabulously with my mom. On the day of, Kerry and her assistant Cherry helped me and my bridal party to feel so comfortable and everyone looked incredible (as evidenced by the many compliments we received)! Kerry is extremely fun, has a great sense of humour, with fantastic time management! Would highly recommend Kerry to anyone.Sent on 27/07/2018
Kerry Riordan Makeup Artistry's reply:Janet! Thank you so much for this lovely review! You are truly a gem and I could not have asked for a nicer client. I'm so glad you and your party liked your looks, you were stunning! Say hello to your wonderful mother for me! :)

Kerry was so lovely! She listened to what I wanted and made any changes and encouraged me to tell her what I wanted different during my trial. On the day off my wedding I was very stressed and she was a calming presence and helped keep me relaxed and sane with all the chaos around. I definitely recommend her. She was flexible and prompt with responsiveness and did the best job! Thank you Kerry! All the best 😄Sent on 31/07/2018
Kerry Riordan Makeup Artistry's reply:Thank you so much Brianne! Yours was one of my first weddings for the 2018 season and I am so glad it was! You, your family and friends were so lovely and warm - you helped start the wedding season right! Glad I was able to be part of your special day. You looked incredible - I am still obsessed with your dress!

Having been in the wedding makeup and hair business for 7 years now, I have seen trends come and go, but classic beauty never goes out of style. I am passionate about creating looks that make people feel their best without changing who they are. I like to create a comfortable space for every bride to embrace her style and be herself. My motto is "Makeup helps elevate, but shouldn't eliminate." I encourage women to embrace themselves - makeup and hair are only to enhance the beauty you already have. I want brides to look back at their wedding photos and see themselves, not a trend. We work with all skin types and tones, and always have a full range of shades for everyone.
I like to bring a sense of fun, humour and joy to every job I do. Getting ready for your wedding should be a positive and exciting time, and I love helping people make those memories.
