About

On WeddingWire since 2016

Last update: January 2024

Kerry Riordan Hair & Makeup Artistry is a wedding beauty service based in Toronto, Ontario. We provide both makeup and hair services across the Greater Toronto Area, Central and Southwestern Ontario. You only need to book one vendor and have one consultation, saving time and stress. We are also entirely mobile and able to come to your home, hotel room or studio.

Having been in the wedding makeup and hair business for 9 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, not eliminate." I encourage women to embrace themselves - makeup and hair are only to enhance the beauty you already have. We work with all skin types and tones, and always have a full range of shades for everyone. I also like to bring a sense of fun 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.

Kerry is a talented and wonderful artist!

Kerry is a wonderful listener and was able to bring everyone's vision to life! She is an incredibly talented artist and just a great human all around. She is fun, creative, and attentive and I would recommend her highly to anyone!

Kerry is the best!

I can’t say enough good things about Kerry. Not only is her work amazing, she is just a delight to be around. Me and my wedding party were all so happy with how our hair and makeup turned out. I’m so glad she was a part of my big day. Cannot recommend enough!

Perfect simple elegance

Kerry did an amazing job on my wedding makeup. This is my second time having my make up done by Kerry (she did a wedding I was part of in 2019) and she just gets better each year. Kerry and her assistant did hair and makeup for 2 bridesmaids, my mother and myself for my wedding. She took the notes from my trial a few months prior and everything turned out great the day of. Exactly what I was looking for.

Great artist!

Kerry was extremely responsive and flexible throughout the planning process, and also a calming presence in the potentially stressful wedding morning. Everyone looked beautiful and her touchup kits were so cute and thoughtful. Highly recommend!

So great to work with!

I was thrilled to have Kerry with us as our MUA on our wedding day! Working with Kerry was so easy -- she brought an amazing vibe to a stressful morning and exemplified professionalism throughout the whole planning process. Couldn't be happier with how our makeup turned out and would highly recommend working with Kerry for your wedding!

She helped me start my wedding day reassured, calm, relaxed, and princess-like

I knew from the initial email exchanges prior to my trial that Kerry was very friendly, flexible, professional, agreeable, and creative. Make up and hair trial was smooth and Kerry was able to receive my adjustment feedback to do even better on my wedding day. She's also a professional (polite and knowledgable) and a perfectionist (that it's perfect for the bride) and really easy to talk to. She puts her clients first. She made me feel at ease. She can make your dream come true. She's also very humble. I will recommend her to everybody.

Rocked it, 100% recommend. Kerry does timeless beauty best, funny and professional.

Kerry does amazing classic, natural hair and makeup. She can also do vintage glam, she helps you look great regardless of what your vision is.
She really listened to what I wanted, looked at my inspo photos and helped me to look and feel my best on my wedding day. You decide what you want to do with your hair makeup, but her suggestions were all perfect.
Kerry did my sister and mother's makeup too and listened to their individual requests. The three of us looked the best were every looked, and we felt great.
Kerry is professional, on time, and has great clear communication. But with all that you get a laid back, fun, dry sense of humour.
Very calm no stress, a great person to be relaxing with before the day gets going.
She worked with our crazy timeline, trying to fit in a makeup trial in just a few days, and our wedding 2 months away.
Kerry was recommended to me by a friend who is a makeup artist herself, and had Kerry do her hair and makeup on her wedding day. I'm so glad we got to work together, you are in good hands with Kerry.

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!!!

Helped me realize my vision

Kerry did my hair and makeup for our engagement photoshoot and was originally supposed to do my makeup on our wedding. However, with Toronto being in lockdown again we decided to cancel. Kerry was both professional and understanding of my decision to cancel. She does beautiful work and I would use her again.

Kerry is a TRUE artist!

I found Kerry after searching for stylists in the Toronto area who could do vintage hair and makeup. I consider myself extremely blessed to have found Kerry. From the initial email, to the day of, I felt totally comfortable with Kerry and knew I was in the right hands. She is someone you're going to want with you on your wedding day! Kerry did a consult with me and nailed the look I wanted - I literally could not stop staring at myself in the mirror! And this wasn't even wedding day! Her team was amazing on wedding day - We had 5 bridemaids, 3 mothers, 2 little girls and one bride! Everyone was thrilled with their makeup - literally 9 ladies with varying styles, preferences, etc. were all pleased - this is the amazing job that Kerry does! Kerry's prices are very reasonable and she travels to you. I am confident in saying that Kerry is now my official hair and makeup person for events! I don't want to use anyone else!!

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.
