    The most wonderful artist!

    We all loved Klava. She understood everyone's wants and needs for their makeup. She was so enjoyable to have on my wedding day- fit in perfectly with my bride tribe! When looking for a makeup artist what pushed me to select Klava was her natural looks and sustainable/clean products.

    Stunning looks by Lyz Plant!

    We were so lucky to have Lyz (from Klava Z's team) as our MUA for our wedding. My trial was fantastic and she鈥檚 such a fun person to work with. Lyz is very knowledgeable and talented. She took great care of myself and all the ladies on the big day, and our makeup was just how we each wanted it! Klava has a great team of people working for her, and was very organized throughout the booking process. She鈥檚 very sweet, and even hand-delivered a parcel to our house after it had been returned to her. I couldn鈥檛 have been happier with how I looked on my day!

    Best Makeup Application EVER!

    I booked Klava a year in advance and have zero regrets. This woman has won awards for a reason!!! Her attention to detail was top notch and made every one of my girls feel and look their best. The makeup lasted all day and night, even through the hot humid weather.

    Klava Zykova Makeup Artist's reply:

    Thank you so much Shanna! It means a lot coming from a professional in a beauty industry who understands customer service and experience provided!

    Stunning Work!!

    As someone who barely wears any makeup on a day to day basis, my wedding makeup was something I was most nervous for. My past experiences with makeup for wedding related events have been cakey and heavy, and not looking anything like myself. The moment I met Klava for my bridal trial at her studio, I immediately felt at ease. Klava鈥檚 personality and positivity radiates off of her and it makes you feel safe and confident, even before she starts her work!

    On the day of my wedding, as Klava and her coworker took on each member of my bridal party, the level of confidence in the room grew. As they completed their makeup, Klava would be telling each person on how their specific attributes complimented them and how beautiful they were. She created looks on my bridal party, Mom, mother in law and my Nana that made their inner and outer beauty shine. This included myself! They enhanced everyone鈥檚 features, instead of hiding them. They took everyone鈥檚 makeup comfort levels into consideration and created the most amazing looks for each individual. Especially for my mother in law who was skeptical of the makeup experience at first, but after the dedication and time spent with her, she was radiating in and out!

    For my makeup, I was so impressed at how Klava would custom make a colour that suited my skin tone, matched my natural tones and colours and made it feel light and airy. I had never worn makeup before and not felt cakey. My blue eyes were popping, my freckles still showing and I felt like I was glowing. The confidence that she gave me on my wedding day was unbelievable. I have never felt as happy in makeup as I did on my wedding day. Oh, and Josh loved the look too! He said it made me shine, and looked subtle and beautiful! Once I have our pictures from our photographer, I will share more with you!

    Thank you, Klava!!

    Best Makeup Artist in Ottawa (and Possibly the World!)

    Thank you to Klava for creating a stunning bridal look for me and doing gorgeous makeup for my friends and mom! I would recommend Klava to absolutely any bride who wants to look and feel beautiful on her wedding day. Klava's makeup application is amazing at highlighting your natural beauty, and she works with you every step of the way to ensure you're 100% satisfied and happy with her work. She's beyond professional, communicative, and detail-oriented, while also being a genuinely kind and caring person! Klava also goes the extra mile by recommending the right beauty products for your skin type (leading up to the big day), emailing the wedding party directly to ensure everyone is well-prepared for their makeup application (so helpful for busy brides!), and even sending you a small gift in the mail pre-wedding! Overall, if you hire Klava for your wedding makeup, I can guarantee you'll be delighted with the results and feel like the most beautiful version of yourself on the biggest day of your life. Simply the best!

    Best makeup artist ever!

    Klava is so talented I felt so absolutely beautiful. I love makeup and feel like I was fairly knowledgeable about it before but she had so many good tips and advice that I never knew before. You can tell it is her passion and she truly cares about creating your perfect look. She is also super down to earth and has a lot of advice and knowledge about natural products. I felt comfortable giving feedback after my trial about what I鈥檇 like to change or tweak for my big day. Thanks so much Klava!!

    Klava Zykova Makeup Artist's reply:

    Aw, Darian I love that you included your photos - you made such a beautiful bride! Thank you so much for such a lovely review!

    Klava was incredible, from beginning to end! I was impressed by her professionalism and service, when she initially asked me a number of questions to get to know me before we met for a trial application - my style, my comfort level with makeup, etc. On the day of the wedding, she came with a second artist to do my makeup along with 6 other women's, and everyone was raving about their makeup!! Klava really took the time to get to know each person. I learned through observing her how makeup is a work of art, with the detail and care she and her assistant took. From my first meeting with Klava, I knew that I had nothing to worry about with my makeup on the wedding day, and she did not disappoint!! I wanted a natural look, and Klava made sure that I felt completely "me" while looking enhanced and feeling beautiful. On top of all this, there was some down time during the day before touch ups, while I was taking photos. Klava offered to do some extra people's faces - mostly a group of flower girls who were happy as can be! She did not charge me for these extra faces and I appreciated her flexibility - so did the girls! Thank you, Klava, for helping to make my wedding day relaxing and fun!

    The absolute BEST!

    Klava was a pleasure to work with. Having her do my makeup for the wedding was one of the first (and best) decisions I made while wedding planning.

    Klava did my bridesmaids and mothers makeup and did such a great job of tailoring the look to each of their personal styles and coloring. Everyone looked beautiful, natural and the makeup lasted all day/night.

    Not only did she respond very quickly and professionally, her emails/Instagram lives were extremely helpful for beauty prep and beauty timelines.

    I would definitely recommend her to any bride!

    Catherine

    Making a perfect day even better

    Klava was the makeup artist for me, my maid of honour, mother and mother in law on my wedding day, and I couldn鈥檛 imagine having another artist. Klava was quick to respond, professional, and took the time to ask the most appropriate questions to understand my vision for the day. Although I had a hard time articulating it at first, she was so receptive and patient with me during and after the trial and created my perfect look that lasted all day. More importantly to me, she made my mother and mother in law look spectacular and I鈥檒l always remember how they glowed that day. I absolutely recommend Klava.

    Amazing Makeup Artist

    I used Klava for my wedding day makeup and she was absolutely amazing. She did the makeup for myself, my mother, and 4 bridesmaids. Everyone looked amazing. Everyone's makeup lasted all night. I can't recommend Klava enough. She was amazing! She's my go to makeup artist.
