11 Ottawa Makeup Artists for Your Wedding & Events

Are you planning your wedding in Ottawa? It’s difficult to know where to begin, and there are countless different vendors in the city to choose from. Once your venue is booked and the date is secure, I recommend looking at photographers, hair stylists and makeup artists next. As a tip, always make sure your vendors are insured and have a contract for you both to review and sign.
Ottawa has numerous talented makeup artists, too many to count or include in one post. Based on my personal wedding planning, these following makeup artists were found while researching or personally referred to me. I don’t think you could go wrong with any!
