She made me comfortable in my skin!

Nelly is very relatable. She understands and respects your insecurities and knows how to bring out your beautiful features. She shows a lot of concern for your comfort and is committed to making sure you get exactly the look you want for your wedding day. She is flexible and adapts easily to change requests. She is open to any suggestions & give her own expert opinion (especially when you are indecisive). I appreciate how much research and work she does before, she really cares about making you look like the most beautiful bride. Her skill to work with Asian face is priceless. She is truly a creative artist and makes you feel calm (she can tell when you are stressed) She did touch ups when I told her about my teary eyes worries. She will also message you after the wedding to ask for feedback like a real professional looking to learn. Thank you, Nelly! Future brides are lucky to have you as a MUA!

Best east asian bridal makeup artist in Mtl!

I highly recommend working with Nelly C. for any east Asian bride in the Montreal area. Nelly is a professional MUA who takes the time to listen to your needs and find a look that suits you. She understands how to enhance monolids and I love that I was able to see a different look on either side of my face and choose the elements that I liked the most.

My makeup held on on a summer day and even with ++ crying, I only had the faintest of smudges underneath my eyes, which Nelly already predicted and gave me an emergency touch up kit so I could remove the smudges. My BM, mother and mother-in-law also got made up by Nelly and loved their look.

It was lovely working with Nelly and I highly recommend any future bride contact her ASAP as she is in high demand.

I was referred to Nelly by a friend of mine who used her services for her own wedding a year before mine. She was very satisfied and highly recommended her.
Nelly usually replies within a few hours when I contact her, and she is quite flexible with her schedule. My wedding was on August 6th 2016, but I did my trial with her in January 2016.
She is extremely patient and really paid attention to my likes, dislikes, etc. during the trial, so that at the end, I was entirely happy with the result. She even followed up with me later in the evening of the trial day to ask how I felt with the make up on after many hours. She also makes good suggestions according to her experience so that my make up looked good in person and also in pictures.
She really knows her products well---she predicted that my skin will probably turn oily with a foundation used during my trial. She used another type on my wedding day, and there wasn't even a sheen after hours of dancing and sweat! I have never used fake lashes before, but she made sure they were comfortable. Her make up stayed perfect for well over 14 hours despite the August heat.
She has experience with weddings, and made suggestions for my wedding day schedule so that photographers and hairstylists have time to do all the bridesmaids and mothers. She did an excellent job on my mother and mother in law who are Chinese in their 50s who almost never wear make up. My maid of honor has mono eyelids which have always been a challenge to apply make up, but Nelly made her eyes look amazing.
She was always professional and friendly throughout, and her prices are very competitive considering the quality of service I received.

Bridal makeup/hair

Nelly did my makeup and hair for my wedding day and I am so happy I decided to go with her. Very professional, open to feedback and flexible even when I decided to change the hairstyle I wanted on the day of. My makeup and hair stayed perfect all night and I got constant compliments all night. I will be recommending Nelly to all my friends!

Nelly was the best.

I have got in touch with her few months ahead of Nelly. We’ve been communicating very well until the day of wedding. Very helpful and professional. Most importantly, her make up work and hair work was beautiful. She was really considerate of every single aspects. Because of her, I was shined a beautiful bride on my wedding day. Everybody couldnt stop talking about how great her work was. Thank you a lot Nelly.

Wedding Makeup

I had a very positive experience with Nelly. She would respond to my emails within 24hrs or less and her experience and suggestions were merited.
I loved how I looked on my wedding day and how I looked in the photos.

Nelly is Amazing!

My wedding was last minute and so my friend referred me to Nelly. When I reached out to Nelly, she made time to meet during her busy schedule. She also drove all the way to my house even if it was further away. When I first met her (On Google), I immediately felt a connection with her and trusted her. She came very prepared on the day of the wedding. Nelly did an amazing job with my make up and hair. I received a lot of compliments on her work. I am glad it was Nelly who did it. I will definitely refer her to my friends.

Make up for bride, mother of bride and bridesmaid

Nelly worked her magic on the day of my wedding! I recommend doing a trial with her first so that you really know what style you like best. She will suggest the right lip color and lashes with her artist eye! After that, throughout the day, she will ask how the make up is holding and take notes to make changes accordingly for the wedding. On the day of, she arrived on time and even covered harsh tan lines on my sister! She is detail oriented and the make up held on well despite the rainy day. I know that she took my comments to heart since the eyeliner smudges that happened on the trial, were no longer an issue on the wedding day! She is very thorough to make sure that you look your best. I would absolutely use her again, should I have another important event to attend!

Thankful for her hard work and dedication to her craft 💕

Nelly was originally recommended to me by one of friends who had just had her wedding. I am so happy that I took my friend's recommendation because Nelly was such an amazing MUA 💖 She had a very keen eye for detail and was extremely helpful on giving me advice on which colours would suit me best especially since I don't know much about makeup to begin with. Nelly also made sure I was covered for the rest of my night by providing me with a touch up baggie, which honestly saved me for the photos I took in the evening.

Most importantly I really enjoyed conversing with Nelly. I believe that as a client I should be able to openly and comfortably speak to my makeup artist without fear of judgement and Nelly's ability to provide and maintain a warm and joyful experience is something that I sincerely appreciate about her. Nelly did makeup for my Maid of Honour and my mom and both really liked how their makeup turned out. The most important part is, my makeup still looked flawless despite all the sweat and tears I shed during the ceremony. Nelly's helpfulness and kindness really made my wedding day that much more special 🤍
