"I had never experienced the techniques Bri was using, I was dazzled and mesmerized as I watched her use several colours for just my cheeks! This was my first time ever getting airbrush makeup as well. Bri worked quickly & expertly despite my constant talking and laughing, I remember her not missing a beat whilst I felt her applying winged eyeliner & lashes…. I was blown away by her expertise & skill.
Then.. the big reveal.
It seemed like no time had passed before she gave me a smile and directed me towards the mirror. I first noted that my face still felt light & the makeup actually felt comfortable. When I looked in the mirror, I felt like a movie star or a celebrity about to hit the red carpet. I felt more beautiful than I had ever had before. Not only because of the makeup…but because of the way Bri made me feel while in her chair. Unlike my past experiences, which during the process, they made me feel like I had things on my face that needed to be fixed. During every moment with Bri, I felt like she focused on enhancing my natural features & just made things pop. I strongly feel that her biggest strength is her expertise in actually you & knowing exactly what to do in order to best highlight your features and make them look their best. Never in my life have I ever had nice looking brows that balanced my face. My skin looked flawless but not cakey. My eyes have never, ever, looked so blue & the lip colour she picked I felt like was something I had been missing for my whole life. She is truly an expert in her craft." - Victoria Blaire Photography
"I hired Bri Stein to do my wedding makeup. She was an absolute pleasure to work with and one of the best decisions I made while planning my wedding! She made me feel so beautiful on my wedding day. I didn't want my makeup to look over-done and Bri worked with me to create a look that made my features "pop" without being too much, and that photographed so well. Although many aspects of wedding planning can be stressful, worrying about how my makeup would look on the day-of was not one of them. On the morning of my wedding day, she did makeup for my five bridesmaids and I - she was so calm and efficient and my girls were so happy with their makeup. As a bride, I appreciated her dedication, professionalism and passion for her work. I would highly recommend her services to anyone wanting to feel fabulous and look flawless on their special day! Thank you!" - Brittany F.
"I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the amazing makeup you did on my bridal party and myself for our wedding. Everyone looked so stunning! I had no worries on my wedding day, because after my trial run, I knew you would be sure that I looked nothing short of perfect on my special day. You listened to my requests for my makeup and ensured all of us girls had the right hues/shades for our skin by giving us excellent recommendations. The makeup really photographs well, just as you promised. Our wedding pictures really highlighted your work and helped make each of us look gorgeous. As well, our makeup lasted all day and night, with no touch ups required. You’re such a talented Makeup Artist and a lovely, calming presence for any nervous bride-to-be. I would highly recommend your services to all future brides in the area!" - Melissa H.
"Bri did my make up for my wedding in July 2015. It was an extremely hot day probably close to 40° and my wedding was on a rooftop by the water...Needless to say my fear of having my makeup melt off my face was very high! Not only did Bri do an absolute amazing job on my make up by giving me the look I was looking for but it was also done with high-end products. How do I know this? I stood on a rooftop in 40° weather with the sun beaming down on me standing there in a long sleeve heavy have dress and my makeup did not wear off, sweat off and of course I couldn't even cry it off! She also did seven girls in my bridal party. Out of seven girls you would think that somebody would have an issue with something (we're a little high maintenance) but..nope! She again never ceased to amaze me. It was a complete success, every girl absolutely loved their make up and looked amazing! I would pick her time and time again to do my makeup. Anytime I have a special occasion that I want my makeup done she is my first point of contact! And to top everything off not only is she amazing at doing makeup but she is also a pleasure to be around. Thanks Again Bri!" - Paige B.
"After being a bridesmaid and being responsible for my own makeup (can you say.. stress?!), I knew I had to hire a makeup artist to get me and my bridesmaids ready on the day of our wedding. Bri was suggested to me by our wedding planner, and I knew by looking at her website that she was the perfect fit for us! Bri was obviously an artist; someone who is passionate about what she does, and really cares about her clients. I was admittedly a little nervous; I'm no newbie to makeup (having had to dabble on my own for dance competition!) and I did have blind trust for Bri, but it was important to me to not have to worry about makeup (I knew it was going to be a hot wedding day, and I wanted it to last!!), and it was really important to me that everyone else be happy with the choice that I made. My trial sealed the deal - Bri is a genius; she took time and care to create a flawless look for our engagement photos, and my husband - who so desperately wanted me to look natural - was so happy with how I looked! On our wedding day, Bri brought such amazing energy and enthusiasm to our room. She helped ease my nerves, and took the stress out of the day so everyone to relax and enjoy the day! My mom, mother-in-law, sister-in-law, bridesmaids, and I were all blown away by how amazing Bri made us all look; and were so pleased that all of our makeup stayed so well despite the crazy 37 degree heat! Even more amazing, was how every time someone jumped out of Bri's chair, they oozed confidence and excitement. My girls still talk about how much they loved their makeup for our wedding, and we are all actually a bit sad to that we live in Calgary and can't use Bri for all of our special events!" - Adrienne J.
"Of course your wedding day is such an important day....but what makes your day perfect is feeling confident about the people you have chosen to be a part of that day. I picked Bri (from her website) based on her style thinking it may be a match for what I was looking for....I got in touch with Bri via email and she always got back to me right away-which for me what a great start! Having a trial was very important to me and being from out of town I had limited times, Bri made the dates, times, and location work for me. My trial was a few weeks before my wedding and of course I felt nervous that it may not be exactly what I want....to my surprise it was perfect!!! Bri was so much fun to get to know, and my style being a bit different (colour) I was worried.....she still nailed it!! From that day on to my wedding I knew that I had nothing to worry about as to how I would look....pretty important! On my wedding day Bri on time was there and did a PERFECT job....I was SO happy with my make up!! Bri did make up at my parents house and everyone there mentioned how wonderful she was to have around. I would recommend Bri to anyone....thank you Bri, I could not imagine having had anyone else do my make up for my wedding day!!" - Shona D.
"Bri is a professional, reliable makeup artist, with the ability to create any look you desire. I trust her when I need my makeup to stay all day, such as my graduation as well as my wedding, and have never been disappointed. I work in the beauty industry myself, and consider myself hard to please, but Bri does a fantastic job and has my full confidence. The makeup she created for me for my wedding made my eyes pop unbelievably in photos, and lasted through a very warm, sunny Kelowna day. Part way through my wedding, I could feel sweat from the sun beading down my forehead, and I was terrified that my makeup might start to glisten or run, but discovered my face was still matte and perfect and Bri had intended it to be. Loved it!" - Crystal P.
"Bri is a lovely, sweet and talented woman. She created my bridal makeup look as well as a couple of my bridesmaids. During the trial, Bri listened to me when we discussed what look I wanted for my bridal make up and was helpful to offer suggestions. Bri is professional and an artist. I absolutely loved my bridal make up! It was the perfect natural bridal glow I wanted! If you are in search for a makeup artist I definitely recommend Bri" -Mel R.
"I do not even know where to begin... Bri is such an amazingly talented and well rounded individual. Not only is she professional, soft spoken and easy going, but she is also immensely talented at what she does. Bri listens to what I want and makes it even more spectacular that I could ever imagine. I have had my makeup done by her several times for multiple occasions and every single time is absolutely amazing. There has never been a time where she's let me down. When it comes to makeup, Bri is the only person I can fully trust with my eyes closed. I thank her for enhancing my natural features and for making me feel so beautiful. She's a pleasure to go see and chat to, as she makes the entire process so fun and relaxing! I would highly recommend her to all my friends and family... or anyone who's wanting the best of the best when it comes to makeup artistry." - Apinder S.
