    Amazing team!

    Great team to work with! I truly felt like a princess on the day of the wedding and my makeup lasted all night. Actually it was still perfect the next morning to the point that my friends/family literally asked me if I had gotten my makeup done again… even the lashes stayed on!
    I am sooo happy to have chosen makeup worx for my special day! Monica was so nice and easy to talk to! Michelle is amazing with hair, showed her a picture and she completely delivered! Highly recommend !

    Makeup and hair queens

    Makeup work is such an amazing business I don’t even know where to begin! I reached out to Monika about my wedding hair and makeup and from the start she was courteous, charming knowledgeable and so easy to talk to! She was able to book a time to have a phone call and plan out everything I needed for my wedding makeup and hair and for my bridesmaids and help curate everything I needed for the perfect day! When I had my makeup trial for the wedding she was able to accurately asses my skin and apply the makeup to best fit me and my look, she was able to recreate my vision even better than I could have ever imagined and even give great advice to improve the vision I had. Michelle did my hair and she is the hair queen! I have very thin hair that doesn’t hold anything well and she was able to give me my dream wedding hair exactly how I wanted it and how I dreamed it to be. The studio, their supplies and their products are all high end and clean and they do such an amazing job and are truly masters in their art! On the wedding day that showed up with a smile and were so wonderfully getting all my bridesmaids, my mom and myself absolutely gorgeous for the wedding day and made us feel like royalty. I truly never imagined I could look and feel as beautiful as I did on my wedding day and I owe it all to Monika and Michelle! The best part is the makeup truly lasted ALL DAY no transferring, no smudging and no “cake face”, it even lasted through so many happy tears!! If I could rate them 5 stars I would!! I will definitely recommend they to anyone and everyone I meet !!

    Best Hair and Makeup Team

    Carli and Michelle from Makeup Worx made my bridesmaids and I feel beautiful all-day long. Hair and makeup was flawless the entire day and my concern of makeup transferring to guests did not occur. Being an indecisive person, I walked in extremely excited for my hair and makeup trial. I loved what they created but got home and immediately changed my mind. Monika and Michelle acted quickly to set up another hair trial so that I was truly confident with the hair style I chose. My second look was absolutely BEAUTIFUL and held together perfectly on the wedding day. I also decided to change my makeup look last minute and Carli was able to recreate the look effortlessly. The two ladies were extremely punctual even at 545am. They completed the hair and makeup for my large bridal party and everything was completed on time. Everyone looked absolutely incredible and I am so happy I chose Makeup Worx for my wedding day.

    This makeup LASTS

    So happy with went with Makeup Worx for our big day. We had Anthony and Sierra come to our hotel in Ancaster to help the bridesmaids and I get ready. They were so friendly, easy to work with and relaxing. You tell them the look you want, and they'll go above and beyond to make you look beautiful. Anthony was a wizard with his curling wand and did an amazing job. Sierra's makeup was amazzzing on all the girls. She covered my zits up - you couldn't even tell I had them. And it was a hot day, and our makeup lasted for the entire night. I'll be honest, I didn't take it off and i still looked amazing the next day. So glad we had these guys make us look good on our big day.

    I chose to use the company MakeUp Worx for our hair and make-up. They travel to you but also have an inhouse studio. They use airbrush, which is incredible and makes everything flawless. Monica, Missy, Michelle and one more hair individual met us at 9am in our two suites and did an incredible job. They worked well with what my 6 bridesmaids + Mom + mother in law wanted both for hair and make up. They work amazing with very “picky” individuals, and kept an amazing composure at those times when most people would want to say “shut up!!!”. To top it all off, they made me looking INCREDIBLE! Missy’s amazing makeup skills, mixed with Michelle’s perfect hair styling skills topped off with a glowing tan from Tan on the Run created my dream look. I received so many compliments (as do all brides) but the difference was, I myself felt incredible. Feeling and looking incredible, truly makes your one special day feel that much better. Makeup Worx & Tan On The Run are the perfect team to make your dreams come true on your special day, to make your beauty you already have shine even more, and to make you feel comfort and excited not only on your wedding day, but leading up to it too. http://makeupworx.ca/ http://www.tanontherun.com/
