Testimonials

"Shantelle, I had a wonderful time working with you on the feature film, ’Deadly Dance Moms’. As you know, I have been directing for over 45 years and I’ve been lucky enough to work with fabulous performers like Keanu Reeves, Bruce Willis and Angela Lansbury in both Canada and in the US. I understand that not all stars are as pleasant in the chair and you were wonderful with them in the chair and on the set. The actors looked fabulous!

 

Sometimes I come across a person that has the drive, talent, and know how to make it in this business and that certainly is you. I know this because When we finished our film together you gave me one of the best hair cuts I’ve ever had. You had wonderful creative input, you were efficient and helped my vision come to life.

I look forward to working with you in the near future and I will gladly recommend you. If anyone has any questions about your quality of work, feel free to give them my email. I would be happy to answer any questions"

"The ladies loved their hair and make up! There were so many compliments from others about it too, and when I told some of my friends that I had replaced my hair and make up artists a week before the wedding, they were surprised and said that it worked out for the best because we all looked stunning. I'm very grateful that both of you were there to make my big day so memorable! Thank you!"

"Shantelle and the artist were very professional. Mirjana did an incredible job! She listened to exactly what I wanted; I was so pleased with the final result. Also, she was able to come to my house for the trial which was very convenient. I highly recommend their service!"

"I have never felt so beautiful as I did on my wedding day, in my entire life! The Flawless by Design team was a massive part of why I felt that way. As a gal that doesn't wear much makeup on a daily basis and hates her hair, I was nervous about looking too made up and my hair letting me down (as usual). Shantelle put all my fears to rest. My hair and makeup were perfect.  EXACTLY what I wanted and more. I felt beautiful and still felt like "me". The bonus was we had so much fun getting ready. Shantelle is not only an amazing makeup artist, the girl kept me in stiches.  She is an absolute joy to work with!

"I've been meaning to greatly thank you for everything...from the trial to the day of the wedding. Everything was just AMAZING!!!!!!!!! Thanks to you & your team all of us looked completely flawless. Everyone commented on how stunning we all looked! On the day of the wedding, I wanted it to be so relaxed and you girls immediately made us feel that way (even at the end when we were in a little bit of a time crunch). It was great that you girls made us feel really special, even our flower girl - she was so delighted to be treated like a grown-up and have her make-up & hair done as well! Also, the air brush for myself was a great suggestion and I was amazed that it lasted the entire day. You haven't heard the last of us, yet. Thank you so much"

"Shantelle not only made me a beautiful bride, but she put me at ease with her bubbly personality, great conversation and cleanliness, which is very important to me. Even though the makeup lasted throughout the day, Shantelle stayed throughout the ceremony and reception to offer me small touch-ups. This was very helpful, as I wanted to look my best when the wedding pictures were taken later in the day"

"Shantelle did excellent work as makeup assistant on the web series “Playing the Game”. We had a very tight schedule and limited resources, so her teamwork and professionalism was indispensable. Shantelle worked very well with the cast and crew, and contributed to a positive atmosphere where everyone could do their best work"

"Her attention to detail and desire to fulfill the director’s creative vision are two of her most professional aspects by far. Whether it was the retro sci-fi look I wanted on my most recent film or a more natural approach for the lead singer of an alternative rock band, Monika delivered with both barrels blazing. Highly recommended"

"In my years modeling, I've come across a few make up artists that I would consider some of the best. Monika is one of them. It takes more than just talent to be a great Make Up Artist. It takes heart, people skills, and of course knowledge. Monika definitely embodies all these things, and more. I would work with her time and time again"

"The quality of her work and detail met and exceeded my expectations. She gets to know you as a person not just as a client and has a wicked sense of humour. She has such a meticulous touch, puts thought into every action and asks questions about the photo shoot so the desired "look" matches the outfit. Monika, you are truly AMAZING!"
