The Makeup Kitchener


Bridal Trial

After booking and securing your wedding date with Hilary Grimm Makeup Artistry, a bridal trial is booked a month prior to the wedding where together Hilary and her client will customize the perfect look for the big day. Hilary encourages her clients to bring photos of inspiration to discuss and reference aspects of what they envision.


The appointment entails a consultation, before and after photos, a full application and followed by a discussion afterwards where notes will be taken regarding day of timeline, location of where makeup will be taking place, final head count of ladies requiring makeup application and any other questions or details that may arise.


Hilary recommends that bridal trails are a must. Even if you are a super laid back and relaxed bride and you don’t think a trial is necessary. A trial is a time to see exactly what your face and makeup will look like on the day of the wedding without any surprises or miscommunication. A bridal trial is booked for an hour and half.

Bridal trials are held at Hilary’s home studio space. Hilary Grimm Makeup Artistry is located in Kitchener Ontario.


Regular Makeup Application

A regular makeup application is perfect for those attending prom, graduation, having photos taken like engagement or professional head shots or a special event of any kind that requires you to look your absolute best and last all day. A regular Makeup application will include face primer, foundation, concealer, setting powder, bronzer, blush, highlighter, eyelid primer, eyeshadows, eyeliner, false eyelashes, eyebrow products, waterproof mascara, and setting sprays. Regular Makeup applications are booked for an hour at Hilary’s home studio in Kitchener.


Bridal makeup application and special event Makeup requires systematic steps and products to ensure a natural looking, long lasting wear. This system wouldn’t necessarily be ideal for the every day woman or working mom on the go. A bridal application is much more elaborate and geared toward camera friendly & longevity where as a makeup lesson is more customized and tailored towards the clients individual needs, preference, lifestyle and budget.

Makeup Lesson

A makeup lesson is where you get to learn hands on tips and tricks as well as tools, products and secrets from the pro herself. Hilary encourages clients to bring their personal makeup bag to the appointment to show her what you currently own and use so she can either teach you how to properly use what you have or create a new system around your products. If you are more of a hands on learner, she will get the brushes in your hands to show and teach you so you are applying makeup with her guidance. Or you can sit back and relax as she applies the makeup, it’s your choice.

information and answering questions along the way. Hilary also provides a list of products and tools that your kit is missing to suit your budget and needs. The products used during application will vary greatly depending on the clients preference and needs. Some ladies don’t want to use more than 5 products and spend less than 15 minutes while others want to work on blending eyeshadow and building their kits like the pros. There is no rules with Makeup or right way. Makeup should be completely customized to suit the individual.
