Meet lead artist Rhea Mussai!
My journey as a beauty professional started at the age of 20, balancing my budding freelance business as a makeup artist, a part-time retail job, and university. As a makeup junkie since early childhood, I had always been passionate about beauty and the way products and technique can boost a woman’s confidence.
Upon graduating in Sociology from York University, I made the decision to go all-in on my makeup career instead of continuing my initial path of pursuing a graduate degree in teacher’s college. What started as a side hustle to earn a few extra dollars turned into a full-time and successful beauty business.
This life changing decision led me to passionately pursue hours and hours of self-education in makeup technique and product knowledge, and professional certification in several hair courses taught by world-recognized professionals in the industry.
Rapidly building my skill set over the years, I had the opportunity to be a part of hundreds of catholic and cultural weddings, special events, product, editorial, and creative photoshoots, as well as being an artist for MAC Cosmetics. I am incredibly fortunate to be trusted in assisting and representing some of Toronto’s most coveted artists, to have been flown out overseas for destination weddings, and most importantly to be favoured by countless women as their beauty confidante.
Having worked with women of all walks of life, ages and ethnicities, I am confident in my ability to create unique and customized looks that enhance rather than alter. I am more than humbled to be teaching my skills and knowledge to other aspiring artists. Above all, there is absolutely nothing more rewarding than bringing out a woman’s inner beauty and confidence to take on her biggest moments.
Boasting ample experience, Rhea has worked with hundreds of clients over the years. This expertise allows her to confidently bring all manner of requests to life. Before any magic is weaved by Rhea, she likes to carry out consultations with those who have booked her services. These sessions allow her to set aside time to understand her customers’ likes and dislikes. A trial service is also provided by Rhea Mussai Makeup Studio, and this allows almost-newlyweds to experience their wedding style in advance of the big day. Some of the services provided by this business include contouring, false lash application, tattoo coverage, and more.

Absolutely amazing every time.
So you're looking for a makeup artist but you want to see their reviews first. All the Google reviews you see of the MUA's will be 5 stars but are they really worth the 5 stars? Questionable.
I'm here to give you my honest opinion because I literally have no reason to go out of my way to write a review here. The only reason I'm doing it is because i truly believe Rhea deserves it. Frankly, she deserves more than 5 stars.
Rhea has done an exquisite job with my engagement, engagement shoot and wedding makeup. She was always punctual (out of all the makeup artists I emailed, she was quickest to respond. Even after I signed the contract). She took her time with my makeup and hair and made sure everything was up to a higher standard than most would've set for themselves. I kept my makeup pretty neutral for the most part I'd say but if you check out her IG you can see that she's branching out to editorial and bolder style makeup and killing that too. You see other makeup artists page and it's evident that they stick to the same old stuff that they're comfortable with. Rhea constantly challenges herself to elevate to higher levels. I could go on and on but her work speaks for itself. Check out her IG and you will see exactly what I'm talking about.
To Rhea; keep killin' it, girl. Your hard work does not go unnoticed.

My Experience with Rhea
Rhea was truly amazing! She not only nailed the look I asked for but did more than I expected. I received so many compliments on my make up for BOTH my wedding days. She knew exactly what to do for my Hindu wedding and Catholic wedding. She is a professional and was very punctual. I would definitely recommend her.Sent on 26/11/2020
