    Flawless Skin, Beautiful Korean style Makeup For a Picky Bride!

    I am so happy and blessed I met Olivia to do makeup for my wedding - Before I met her I was just about to give up finding an artist. I spent close to $1,200 just on makeup trials going to the most hyped up makeup artists in Toronto with over 50K followers on instagram and they were a huge disappointment being 30 minutes late, rushing the trials or forgetting our appointment downright.

    Before the wedding we had a photoshoot in Korea where we went to get some pre-wedding photos. I got my makeup done at one of the top makeup artists in Seoul who does makeup for kpop stars.

    I was really bummed out when I realized makeup artists in the West didn't focus much on the skin and the artists didn't understand when I said I wanted "Korean style makeup" with radiant skin and natural, romantic makeup, soft natural eyebrows etc. Most knew how to do the Karadashian style heavy contouring/over the top highlighter/smokey eyes that is so 'in' nowadays that just isn't for me.

    When I booked Olivia for a trial I knew I found the right person. Just like Korea, Olivia started with asking me questions and looking at my inspiration photos. She asked to see pictures of myself of where I thought I looked pretty and to point out what I like and dislike. Then, just as they did in Korea - She dedicated 1 hour solely on skincare & base makeup/foundation to prep my skin and ensure that it looked dewy and radiant (but not oily as I'm naturally oily).

    The day of the wedding was really stressful for me - The total cost of the wedding was close to 250K and the pressure on me was immeasurable. Olivia not only was my makeup artist but she was my therapist the day of the wedding! She helped me stay calm and collected and most importantly, she made me look beautiful. My makeup was exactly as I expected (I actually looked even better than I thought I would!) and the whole process went sooo smoothly, she made sure of it. She made sure I was perfectly happy with my eyebrows and every minute detail from the angle of my eyeliner or the shade of eyeshadow she adjusted everything so that I was happy and everything looked perfect. I was a ridiculously picky bride and I was more than impressed with her work. She even shaded my hairline so that it would look super polished in pictures (true professional!!!!).

    My skin was perfectly dewy and although I was tired and stressed she made me look like I was well rested and so happy!

    For the whole day, I was amazed how Olivia went above and beyond my expectations. She was right next to me and helped ensure my hair and makeup looked perfect for every picture - She adjusted my dress and veil so that every shot would look picture perfect. She reapplied lipstick, blotted my T-zone, made sure tendrils of my hair perfectly framed my face.... She really went above and beyond what I expected from my makeup artist on my wedding day.

    For my evening-look change Olivia made sure that my second hair style and outfit was picture perfect. Before she left for the evening, she even made a little tub of the custom lipstick she specially blended for me for the look so that I would have extra lipstick when I went back fix my makeup, after she went home. These little things where she went above and beyond were numerous and so, so awesome!

    We were so anxious to receive the pictures from our photographers, I asked Olivia to send me her candid photos she took of us during our wedding day. She was more than happy to upload them on Dropbox for me so that I would be able to get the HD version / originals!

    To this day I am so grateful for Olivia and her amazing makeup skills in Korean makeup and her kind, upbeat personality making my wedding day truly unforgettable. I will not hesitate to recommend her to my friends and family and I will for sure be booking her services again for my next big event.

    If you're looking for a make-up & hair stylist for your wedding day/bridal party, look no further. Olivia is the best of the best. She has a great, upbeat attitude, she's knowledgeable and passionate about her work, has amazing work ethic and is extremely professional and trustworthy to make you feel and look like the most beautiful bride in the world for your special day. I had struggled to find a make-up & hair stylist for my day because I'm super picky and wanted someone who could achieve my desired "natural bridal look with a touch of glam" to fit with my overall fairy tale garden theme. Not only did she make me gorgeous, she was also super quick to fix a small hiccup with miscommunication regarding the 2nd hair stylist I booked for my bridesmaids' hair. She quickly called for another stylist to cover asap and even stayed extra time to help make sure all my bridesmaids & my brother's girlfriend (helping out my bridal party) would all have their hair done on time.

    You can definitely count on Olivia to be calm and collected and go above and beyond to make sure your day is a success. When I walked down the aisle, not a dry eye was in the room and it was thanks to Olivia for making sure I looked as beautiful and magical as it felt to finally get married to my soulmate. Thank you so much Olivia for being a miracle worker and such a lovely person to help make my day super special. If you're looking for quality beauty & hair for special occasion, fair pricing and the sweetest person to help you find your perfect bridal look then definitely book Olivia, you won't regret it!!!

    Wow Olivia is a true artist! She transformed me, my mother and mother-in-law, and my 7 bridesmaids for my April 2016 wedding! We got ready at my house and Olivia was so prepared and professional. Her and her assistant had their hands full with such a big bridal party, but we all felt pampered and special! I have our wedding pictures back and love how everyone looks completely flawless and natural but glam at the same time! She also has the warmest spirit and sincerest heart too! I would recommend her for all of your beauty and make-up needs for any occasion!

    Olivia is very, very talented. I trusted her with my make up for my engagement photo session and wedding day and I did not disappoint at all. The make up looked great both in person and in pictures! I looked and felt just like myself - which is very important because I don't want people to not recognize me on my wedding day because I have make up on. Olivia also styled my hair and I absolutely loved her hair styling work. Olivia was a pleasure to work with!

    I highly recommend Olivia to all brides out there. I never like my make up if some one else does it but Olivia is an artist that higlights everyone's natural beauty. All my bridesmaids and mom were so happy about their looks as well. She's easy to work with and really sweet person inside and out!

    Review: I was incredibly happy with the results of my make-up and the support I was given by Olivia on the wedding day. Olivia tailored to my needs knowing that I am very apprehensive about make-up on my face at all. I wanted something natural but polished. She touched up my make-up throughout the day and took great care to ensure that my make-up was humidity proof. Even though at times I felt like I was melting, I never looked like it!

    Contact with Olivia is always responded to in a timely manner (though at times I can't get a hold of her, I assume she was with another bride or event). Olivia went above and beyond for me which really made me feel so special. She took care of touching up my bridesmaids on the spot and was always prepared for anything. Having had make-up done by other artists before, I knew she did quality work and I deeply appreciated the hygienic steps she took to ensure that everything that touched my face was done with something disposable. I had also hired Olivia to do my engagement and boudoir make-up so I knew it would be a perfect match. For the value and the quality, you really get what you pay for and I wouldn't have dreamed of using anyone else on my wedding day and was so happy I chose her!
