    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!!!

    Thank you so much for your kinds words Brittany! I am so pleased that you loved your looks and had a good experience - especially given COVID stress! You were an absolute delight to work with and I'm glad I got to be part of your big day. You are the DIY wedding queen and everything looked gorgeous!

    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!

    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.

    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! :)

    Amazing!!!!

    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 😄

    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!

    Working with Kerry was so very awesome!
    She was wonderful to spend time with, and we all looked fantastic thanks to her.
    She came to my home for my trial, and to the hotel for the wedding day preparations. She made it all so easy!
    I definitely recommend her work!

    Thank you so much, Meredith. I've said it before and I will say it again - you were a pleasure to work with and your friends and family. You all looked beautiful!

    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 Riordan Makeup Artistry's reply:

    Well that was a nice surprise! Thanks so much for your review. It was a pleasure to meet you and I hope you had the best wedding day, I wish I could have been there.

    Kerry is AMAZING! Your hair and makeup search stops here!

    Kerry and her team worked so much magic on our special day! I am SO thrilled with how everything worked out. From the moment I first inquired, to working out logistics of getting the whole tribe done, to scheduling the trial and the wedding - Kerry was so friendly, patient, and answered all my emails with such care. She's also 100% mobile and comes to wherever you are for the trial and wedding.

    I wanted a fairly specific vintage 1950s "Betty Draper/Madmen" look, and she absolutely NAILED it. I've never had a hair and makeup artist achieve this on me before, exactly the way I wanted it - I was sooooo impressed. It was absolutely stunning and was perfect for the theme.

    Kerry's team was as fabulous she was too, and everyone in my bride tribe looked spectacular, all were vintage and all with totally swoon-worthy hair and makeup.

    Would 100% recommend!

    Thank you Kerry!!

    I am so glad you loved your look and your gals did too! Such a gorgeous crew of ladies and a pleasure to work with all of you. Thank you so so much for your kind review - it means a lot!

    Super fun and professional

    I truly enjoyed working with Kerry. She is a professional who knows what she is doing. Her mission is to make everyone happy with their look and that's exactly what I got on my wedding day. Her team is very flexible and can accommodate different spaces (i had 3 girls working in a small kitchen) and I truly appreciate their work. Every bridesmaid loved how they looked and I loved my hair and makeup. Thanks Kerry!!
