Seeing brides beam with elation over their wedding look is a gift for Kerry Waring, a Squamish, British Columbia, based makeup and hair artist. Kerry’s fascination with makeup can be traced to her childhood days, when she spent time replicating looks from magazine on her sister and friends. For her, makeup artistry goes beyond beautification, for she also values the connections that she forges with her clients.


Kerry graduated from the Freelance Diploma Program at the Blanche Macdonald Center in Vancouver in 2008. She began her journey by working in the retail beauty sector with makeup lines such as Benefit Cosmetics, Bobbi Brown, Stila Cosmetics, Smashbox Cosmetics, Dior, Lancome, Jane Iredale Mineral, and Bare Minerals. Not only amassing a wealth of knowledge from these jobs, she also had the privilege of working with some of the most talented makeup artists and photographers.

Services offered

Kerry Waring offers consultations so that she can become familiar with brides and their expectations on their wedding day. Kerry encourages brides to book trial sessions with her so that they can know exactly how their look will take shape. Makeup and hair services are also provided for bridesmaids, groom, and mother of the bride.

Other services

Kerry also provides hair and makeup services for boudoir shoots, graduation, birthday parties, special events, and headshots. She also offers makeup lessons to those who are enthusiastic about learning to do it on their own.

WOW - Best makeup and hair my gals and I have ever had!

I cannot say enough good things about Kerry!! My bridesmaids and I are still talking about how flawless everyone's makeup was! I wasn't able to afford the time or expense to do a trial with Kerry, so I put a lot of trust into Kerry's talents. We reviewed images I had saved for inspiration, and she literally hit it out of the park. I felt BEAUTIFUL and I also didn't feel like I didn't look like myself! I also couldn't believe that through all my wedding-happy tears, my makeup stayed PUT and stayed flawless all day/night. I literally did not want to wash it off - it was perfect and I want to look that beautiful every day!

Thank you so much Kerry!!

Fabulous hair & makeup services!

Big “thank you” to Kerry for the amazing work that she and Chloe did for my wedding in April 2018! They are both so personable, which made it a ton of fun getting ready with them. They did a fabulous job with hair and makeup too! I had a trial session with Kerry prior to the big day, and she did a great job of recreating the styles that I’d chosen at the trial. All in all, it was a very positive experience working with Kerry. I can’t say enough good things about her, and I will be sure to recommend her services to anyone and everyone. Thanks, again!

I highly recommend Kerry

Kerry was absolutely fantastic to work with. She is a master at what she does. My whole wedding party loved their hair and makeup. She came early and stayed until everyone was ready. She was very receptive to my emails before the wedding and the timing changes that I needed to make. She is great.

Amazing work! Like an old friend.

Kerry was absolutely amazing to work with! She is great at responding, flexible, accommodating and most importantly did an amazing job on my bridal parties hair and makeup the day of our wedding! I kept having to remind myself that I was getting married that morning, because it just felt like hanging out with friends. I cannot recommend Kerry enough!

Really glad she there!

Kerry was lovely from initial contact. She was very accommodating when booking the trial. She welcomed me into her home and had a clean and professional set up. It was lovely to chat with her. She took very detailed notes of what she used in the trial so I felt very confident about the day of. On the day of, I was excited to see her. Her make up was exactly what I wanted and my hair was stunning. My hair was so secure all day, even at the sunset photos.
I felt so comfortable with her and she made me look perfect for the day. I highly recommend Kerry!

Kerry was amazing from the moment I reached out to her. She was very responsive anytime I emailed her with questions and was so amazing the day of my wedding. Her and her team were very calm and friendly (which is what I needed the morning of the big day). They were fun to hang out with and did a phenomenal job on my bridal party's hair and makeup. I would highly recommend Kerry to anyone for their big day. She saw the hair style and makeup that I was thinking of and executed it perfectly. Could not have been happier.

Not only did Kerry make me look and feel beautiful for my wedding day, I couldn't have imagined a more perfect person to help me get ready for the best day of my life. From discussing the vision of our wedding, to the look I wanted to go for, the whole process of deciding upon hair and make up felt so effortless and that was down to Kerry's professionalism and experience as a hair and make up artist. I would book Kerry in a heartbeat for any future special occasions.
