Who are you, what you do and who you serve?

My name is Kira Marshall, and I am a Certified Makeup Artist. I am a luxury bridal artist available for travel all over Manitoba and beyond!

What services do you offer?

I offer mobile makeup services for anywhere you need makeup! Whether that be in Winnipeg, Greater Winnipeg Area or international. I specialize in bridal makeup, commercial film and fashion!

How did you get started in the wedding industry, and what inspired you to become a makeup artist?

I first got started 4 years ago. I had recently moved back from Makeup School in Vancouver and slowly wedding season was picking up. I first started my career assisting another highly recognized Makeup Artist in Winnipeg. It was great to get hands on experience and really build my portfolio and meet other wedding vendors. I was inspired to do bridal makeup because of how glam and fun the environment is! Every wedding party is always a breath of fresh air and I love having a new "office" every time!

What do you enjoy most about working in the wedding industry and serving couples on their special day?

I love getting to know my brides and their love story! As someone who is a sucker for romantic comedies, it is like every day is a different one. Being able to be apart of someones happiest day is an incredible feeling.

What do you believe is the most important consideration when couples are choosing a makeup artist? 

Research your artist! Not all are created equally! Look at your makeup artists portfolio to see if their style of makeup relates to you! Once you find this, you can have sooo much more trust in your artist because you have seen their work. I also highly suggest doing a trial with your makeup artist. This allows to make sure you like their style and them as a person. Book it the same day as your social, shower or photoshoot to get the most out if it!

What is the ideal timeline for couples to book your services in advance of their wedding day?

Majority of my brides book my services 8 to 12 months in advanced. The earlier the better so they can hold their date! 

What is the best piece of advice you would offer to couples planning their wedding?

Don't be afraid to ask your vendors for any insight. They know what to expect and how it goes. I often find myself providing the exact timelines for makeup and hair. I know when everyone should be starting in the morning according to when you should be ready for first looks/ceremony. Your vendors give the best timeframes for what they need!

Can you share your favorite wedding trend or design idea that you're currently excited about?

I am obsessed with a minimalist wedding and elopements! Specifically international elopements. Nothing screams fairytale like castle pictures!

How do you stand out?

One way I stand out as an artist is by continuously going the extra mile for my clients. It all starts when you first inquire with me. I am always prompt on responding to clients within hours of getting emails. The other biggest skill set I pride myself on is my education. I am a certified makeup artist, meaning I have went to school for over a year to study all things makeup from everyday glam to movie gore. I make sure my kit, workstation and overall environment are kept up and hygienic!
