Hairstylist & Makeup Artist | 17 Years | SOMA
Heya, I'm Paje! Owner and lead artist of Honor Beauty! I started out with a background in marketing and advertising, but once I realized that my love for makeup artistry could actually become a career, I quickly switched gears and moved to Toronto to study makeup full-time! After having my son, I decided to move back to Niagara and start a mobile bridal business (circa 2008). Each year the business grew and in 2014 I decided to open Honor Beauty as sole proprietor so that I could focus on creating a 100% cruelty-free brand! One of my favourite things about this job is seeing the reactions from clients after we've spent time together creating a look for their special event or wedding day. I love providing clients with a lasting positive experience long after the hair and makeup is washed away. My favourite looks to create are soft glam with dewy skin and a nude glossy lip as well as vintage 1950's inspired waves and red lip + winged eye combo!
Makeup Artist | 5 Years | IBI
For me, makeup is an escape. A place where I can be myself and create. I love applying soft glam looks on clients! People are so beautiful and subtle makeup enhances the beauty that is already there. I love when a client looks in the mirror and sees themselves as they are!
Sarah Y. (she/her)
Makeup Artist | 9 Years, 8 with Honor Beauty
I love making client's visions come alive with makeup. Creating the perfect look using quality, ethical, cruelty-free products is my primary focus as a makeup artist. I love a classic soft glam bridal look with a bold lip. I also love creating the perfect sultry pin-up look for boudoir, it's so much fun!
Makeup Artist | 16 Years | School of Professional Makeup Art
My passion and love for makeup artistry is something I bring to every client I meet. My goal is to perfect your vision, whether it's a stunning and timeless daytime look or a dramatic cut crease application for a night out. My favourite looks to create are neutral toned smokey eyes for bridal makeup and vintage-inspired red lips paired with a cat-eye wing.
Makeup Artist | 12 Years
Hi there! I'm Emilsa and I'm fluent in Spanish and English. I've been a freelance Makeup Artist for 12 years! Being a Makeup Artist gives me the ability to be creative and use my talents to create soft, yet glamourous looks for my clients. I love being a part of the energy that surrounds people on wedding days, it doesn't feel like work to me at all!
Makeup Artist | 15+ Years | Sheridan College
I love what I do, it's my passion and it's so satisfying to be able to transform and create beautiful looks for each and every client I meet! My favourite looks to create are bridal and fitness glam for photoshoots and magazines.
Hairstylist & Makeup Artist | 2 Years | CMU
I love all things makeup and hairstyling from bridal to special effects! I'm passionate about enhancing our clients' natural beauty and ensuring they leave my chair feeling beautiful inside and out!
Assistant Extraordinaire & Makeup Lover!
Hey, I'm Erika, Honor Beauty's Virtual Assistant! I've been working in customer service for 8+ years and I'm here to help answer any questions you may have about booking your wedding day beauty services with the Honor Beauty Team! I've known Paje for a number of years and started working as her Assistant during the 2021 season. I also have my own special passion for all things makeup!
Hairstylist | 13+ Years | Niagara College
Hey, I'm Rio! I started out working at a high end salon while continuing my education at our training academy in Toronto after graduating from Niagara College's Hairstylist Program. After leaving the "in salon" industry, I opened my own in-home studio and began freelancing for Honor Beauty and other hair product companies! With some competition awards and numerous publications under my belt, hairstyling has been a significant part of my life and something I will always be passionate about. I love hairstyling because it allows me to help people feel beautiful and confident. It also allows me to showcase different levels of creativity and skill while taking on challenges, which I love! My favourite bridal styles to create are romantic, tousled updos and Hollywood waves.
Sara M. (she/her)
Hairstylist | 2 Years | Cappa
Hey there! I'm Sara and I've had a passion for hair as long as I can remember! Having the privilege of helping people feel beautiful and empowering them on their wedding day is truly an honour for me! Before working as a professional hairstylist, I was working as a wedding planner so I've always had a hand in the bridal industry. This has allowed me to work with a variety of different brides, stay up to date on trends, and gives me the ability to cater to specific needs and goals with ease. I look forward to the opportunity of working together and helping you feel as confident and radiant as every person deserves to be on their special day!
Sarah J (She/Her)
Hair Stylist | 2 Years | Niagara College
My passion for hair styling started in elementary school! I was the friend who would plan and execute everyone's hair for the monthly school dances. I love the endless possibilities that hair design has, and I enjoy keeping up with the latest trends in bridal hair. My favourite bridal look is Hollywood waves, as I love the timeless glam vibe it creates. My favourite products to use are from Joico and Kenra!
Makeup Artist | 15 Years | OCAD
I've been a makeup artist for the past 15 years, and an artist ever since I can remember.
I started practicing makeup artistry while studying at the Ontario College of Art and Design, for my bachelor's of advertising design. I've been working as a Cosmetic Manager for the past 10 years. What I enjoy most is doing makeup on brides, and making them look and feel amazing on their special day!
Makeup Artist | 3 Years | IBI
My favourite part about being a makeup artist is the ability to enhance someone's beauty and see how confident and excited they are about their look! It's such a joyful experience from start to finish. Dramatic and soft glam looks are by far my favourite to create!
Makeup Artist | 7 Years | Niagara College & CMU
I love being a mobile makeup artist because it doesn't feel like work. I get to show up at a venue and spend time with a group of cool new people, helping them feel gorgeous on a very special day! It feels like making memories with others, over and over again! My favourite looks are natural and bridal glam and my favourite products to work with are cream shadows and vibrant liners.
