Hey everyone, I’m Hilary. I’m a self taught makeup artist in the Kitchener/ Waterloo and surrounding area.
I come from a background in Interior decorating and Visual Merchandising. I enjoy collecting antiques, crystals, and tattoos & I love spending time outdoors in nature.
I started my career in Makeup Artistry in Kitchener over 10 years ago with MAC Cosmetics where I discovered my passion, skill and love for teaching woman how to apply makeup. I then travelled around the GTA as a makeup artist for cosmetic brands like Chanel, L’Oréal, Giorgio Armani, YSL and more. During that time I was able to gain knowledge and experience from industry professionals and artists. I was lucky enough to experiment and work with an extensive product range. From drugstore brands to luxury brands and everything in between. I got to work on countless faces and teach everyday woman how to properly select skincare and wear makeup.
I’ve been building a client base in the Kitchener/Waterloo Bridal industry since I began my makeup journey and it’s become the highlight & focus of my career. I love working with Brides. their families, friends and helping them look & feel beautiful on the most special day. Aside from bridal and weddings I love to get creative on set and collaborate with local photographers, models, and professionals.
In 2016 I trained with Mastered at the Val Garland School of Makeup where I grew my network and refined my sharpness and makeup artistry. I received valuable tips and guidance from my talented peers and industry greats. It was an unforgettable experience.
