Alisa & Svitlana did my makeup and hair for my outdoor wedding last week, and I could not have been happier with their... incredible service and work. First of all, both ladies were extremely kind, friendly and easy to chat to, which is exactly what I needed on the big day (and was also lovely for the trials in advance!) Second, they both listened to exactly what I had asked for and delivered. Both of them have extreme precision in their craft. Svitlana has very high attention to detail and makes sure that every last curl is exactly perfect. Alisa has a keen eye with great suggestions that helped elevate my makeup look to the next level and taught me a few tricks along the way. These lovely ladies also got along amazingly with my mother- and grandmother-in-law and did a wonderful job on both of their hair and makeup as well. They were both very professional and on-time (even a few minutes early) to my down town Toronto hotel on the day-of. Last but not least, their looks lasted all night long, and I felt beautiful from start to end on my big day!! Thank you both so much! You are both amazing people and I will be recommending your services in the future! Samara :)read more

Alisa and her assistant Saada did my, my bridesmaids, and mom's makeup on my wedding day. They were punctual and worked... efficiently as a team, taking into consideration each of our skin types, features and individual requests to create beautiful looks for each of us. My mom in particular has ezcema and I have an allergy to perfumed products and we were relieved to know that Alisa uses products that work with our sensitivities. Not only is Alisa skilled in her craft, she is lovely to work with - responsive, easygoing, funny, kind. I would absolutely recommend Alisa as a makeup artist!read more

Alisa is AMAZING! We booked her makeup services for our bridal party and we were so pleased with the work, she exceeded... our expectations. None of us wear makeup routinely and Alisa was so considerate of our request to have as much of a "natural" look as possible. She was able to make us look polished and enhanced without overly "done" and we couldn't have been happier. She responds to emails promptly, shows up on time and has very reasonable prices, what else could you ask for?! She recommended her colleague, Svitlana, for hair services as well, and she was just as amazing. We all had impeccable, perfect hairstyles. We got compliments all night and were giving out their contact information to our friends and family who want to book their services for future events. I would 100% recommend these 2 ladies. They are both so kind and warm, and just the kind of personalities you want around on what can be a very stressful day!read more

Alisa came to the hospital my mother was unexpectedly staying in on her 80th birthday and did a wonderful job getting... her, my sister, and I ready for family pictures. She even put some pink lip gloss on my 5 year old. She responded quickly and helpfully to emails, which was great as I booked on short notice from my home in Europe. She was prompt, friendly, courteous, and clearly a professional. It took her about 30 minutes per person. Her prices were very reasonable and the results were beautiful. Thanks again Alisa!read more

Alisa is a kind soul, who provides high quality service to her clients. She was the first and only makeup artist I did... a trial with and I knew she was the one and I didn't look further! She was right on time on the wedding day at 6AM and set up her station and worked through 6 bridesmaids and myself in 5 hours! Just make sure to plan the day and setup a rotation for hair and makeup and stick to the schedule and you won't have to worry about the time. My hair stylist and Alisa worked really well together and we were all ready on time! Everyone was so happy with her work! Couple of my girls who never had good experience with fake lashes asked Alisa to put on lashes for them and they told me her work was incredible and they were so comfortable with the lashes and they looked so natural on their eyes! I highly recommend Alisa for her makeup services!read more

Alisa, you are incredible! What an amazing job you did as our Makeup Artist. At our daughter's wedding your work was... impeccable and 7 1/2 years later, we were fortunate enough to have your talent once again for my son's wedding. Your skill and lovely personality makes working with you a pleasure. Alisa, you brought out the beauty in each face you did. I wish you continued success and look forward to the time that I can work with you again.read more

Alisa and her hairstylist, Nicole, did my wedding party's makeup and hair back in October 2013. Both Alisa and Nicole... were on time, professional and got us dolled up with plenty of time to spare. Alisa made all 6 of us look like the very best versions of ourselves, and we all looked glamorous, but very naturally so. Nicole created amazing hairdos that lasted from noon till past midnight. I strongly recommend Alisa and Nicole for your hair and makeup needs - I was completely free of stress the day of the wedding because these two ladies did an incredible job. We all got lots of compliments thanks to them.read more

Alisa recently did the makeup for the Schulich School of Business Charity Fashion show event and I just have to say... that she did the best job ever. She worked really fast and did amazing makeup for over 40 models. She also did my makeup and I am honestly not exaggerating when I say that she made me look glamorous. Her style is breathtakingly amazing and she knows what will look good on you without even having to tell her. On top of everything she is an amazing sweet person. It was so nice to have her do my makeup and just simply talk to her. I not only recommend her to my friends, I honestly recommend her to anyone who wants to look gorgeous on a special day.read more
