I had Justine do my mine and my girls makeup for my wedding 2 years ago and she did an out standing job. Everyone was so happy and we all looked amazing

I would whole heartedly recommend Violet Noir Artistry to anyone looking for amazing makeup for any occasion, but especially their wedding day. Justine did the makeup for me on my wedding, and my entire bridal party/mum. Everyones makeup was flawless and lasted the entire day. Thanks Justine for playing such a perfect part in my wedding day!

Monica is magic - she not only makes you look and feel beautiful - she’s calming and nurturing. She has this way of helping you harness your confidence and own it! Something for sure you want right before a photo shoot or a special occasion. I loved working with her - can’t wait to do it again!

I have had the pleasure of working with Monica on a few occasions and she has been nothing but sweet and professional. She is one of my favourite makeup artists to work with. From our first meeting she understood my style right away and she even made it better! I look forward to working with Monica. Without a doubt I highly recommend her for hair and makeup. She is a consummate professional in all things beauty and style.

Monica is the best makeup artist I’ve ever met and I would highly recommend her and this business to anyone! She has done my makeup and hair for a few different photo shoots and I am awe-inspired every time!!!! Monica has amazing technique...I’ve never met anyone before that can apply full makeup and hair as quick as she can and make everything look PERFECT, FLAWLESS and GLAMOROUS at the same time! Furthermore, she is extremely kind-hearted, professional and a joy to work with!

I was lucky to meet Monica when she did my make up and hair for a photoshoot last December. Such a beautiful person inside and out, she made the whole experience so pleasant. With her natural talent, she made me feel and look so beautiful yet keeping my look authentic to me. I would definitely have her do my makeup and hair again and would recommend her without hesitation.

Justine and her girls did my hair and makeup for my wedding, as well as my bridal party ! These girls are so good at what they do- and they are so fun to be around !!! Renei took the time to figure out my hair, and didn’t make me feel like I had to rush as I was still undecided ! She made sure my hair was perfect for my big day ! It was such a pleasure to have these girls be a part of my wedding morning ! Highly recommended !! ❤️❤️

Monica was such a pleasure to work with. I explained what I wanted for hair and make up and she delivered exactly what I was looking for and more with my hair and make-up! I look forward to working with her again for all of my hair and make up needs.

I’ve had the pleasure of having Monica do my makeup on multiple occasions for photo shoots and bikini competitions. Monica is a very talented, professional, passionate makeup artist. It’s always a lot fun when I get to sit in her chair and watch her do her magic!💄💄

I had the honor of having my makeup done my Monica Kalra for a recent photo shoot. She is beyond gifted and also so down to earth! You tell her your concerns, and your desires of what you want and she tells you to "sit back girl, I got you" this is your day, and you're going to do great and look beautiful! I have had experiences where the outcome is a complete disaster and there is nothing I could do! Everything you see about Monica, is the real deal, she is compassionate, humble, gifted, sweet, kind, and loves what she does! She relates individually to each person she works with and provides her clients with a "one of a kind masterpiece" each and every time! I can not wait to work with her again! Highly, highly, recommend!!!!!! Love you girl! ❤️😘💄

I completely recommend Monica. She is so talented and pays such close attention to detail. Monica made me feel so incredibly beautiful, is very friendly, positive and made me feel very comfortable and at ease, when she was doing my makeup. Thank you for the amazing work you did for my photo shoots and fitness competition. And thank you for being you, Monica!

Justine did my makeup for my wedding and I couldn’t be happier with the turnout! I had so many compliments that day on how good my makeup looked - “so me” “natural” but still “sexy” lol she totally enhanced my features and made me feel like the prettiest bride on my wedding day. If you ever have a doubt about hiring them to do your makeup, don’t!! You will not be disappointed �� these girls are flawless and not to mention amazing people! Much love �

I first had the chance to work with Monica Kalra last year at a photoshoot. Not only is she amazing to work with, friendly, kind and funny but she makes you feel comfortable right from the start. I didn't recognize myself when she was done, I looked and felt amazing and I would recommend her to anyone and I can't wait to work with her again!

I have had my hair and make up done a number of times by Monica and there is a reason for it. Professional, talented and just an all out amazing rock star! You can tell in Monica's work that she LOVES her job and she's amazing at it! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I’ve been lucky enough to be Monica’s canvas three times and every single time she absolutely exceeds my expectations. I’ve never enjoyed having my makeup done because most artists cover up my freckles, but Monica made sure my little love spots shined bright! She took my features and made them pop. I still look back at photos and am stunned with how flawless her art is! She’s one hell of a talented beauty with her makeup and hair skills. Her talents are a reflection of herself as well: flawless, stunning and fabulous!

Can’t say enough about how much I adore Monica! Shooting with Paul Buceta was on the bucket list and getting Monica to do my makeup was the icing on the cake! If you had told me I’d be sharing unedited pics, I would have said you were crazy! Well, I don’t have a single edited pic from that shoot and it’s a testament to Monica and her amazing gifts! The fact that she’s a freaking rockstar angel that you’ll want to be friends with forever is just a bonus! You will love her and your hair and makeup!

I had Monica do my makeup for a photoshoot back in March 2018. Her abilities blew me away! None of the makeup felt heavy or chunky; it definitely didn't feel like I was wearing pounds of makeup. It was light and absolutely stunning. I felt like the most beautiful girl in the world. She is so kind and so genuine. I would definitely recommend her a million times over! Hope I can maybe work with her again in the future!

Professional, sweet, fast, punctual and all around THE BOMB!
I have worked with Monica 3x now for both hair and make up and she never ceases to amaze me with how professional she is and how quickly she can make you look like your most gorgeous self! Even when she’s travelled a long ways to work, it doesn’t matter how early she got up or how little sleep she had you’re going to leave her looking AMAZING! Her clients are her number one priority and you are made to feel like her ONLY client when in her chair. I have seen her flawlessly do one face after another and every woman leave feeling fabulous. She is the BEST and if I could have her follow me around and do my makeup everyday I would! �

I’ve had the pleasure of working Monika K three times. After the first make up and hair application for a photo shoot, I had to go back and ask her how she did it so I booked a “how to for dummies” session with her. LOL
I then booked her for my bikini comp a few months later. She’s honestly the best, selfless and caring make up artist (creative genius) that I have had the pleasure of working with. She just knows what would look best for any occasion and creates this vision on yo face!!! 💋⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I was blown away by the professionalism and genuine care of Monica at Violet Noir Artistry. Prior to meeting Monica I had never had my hair or makeup professionally done. I was nervous as to whether I would still look like myself after being made up. I had nothing to worry about! Monica enhanced my personality throughout her work. I felt confident and beautiful. She took great care in her art and made an effort to get to know me during our time together. She was kind, funny, and genuine. I would recommend her talent to anyone. In fact, the quality of her work was so outstanding that I can’t imagine having to work with another makeup artist. Looking back at pictures of that day, I continue to admire the outcome of her talent! I can hardly wait to have her do my makeup again some day!

These gals are so very friendly and professional. I recommend them to anyone needing any makeup application. Whether it is for a photo shoot, stage performance/competition or a wedding, book with Violet Noir Artistry; they are FANTASTIC!!

I had a large bridal party with a variety of skin-tones and complexions. Each girl (even my picky girls) were really pleased with their look.

The makeup felt very light on my face and it lasted all day without any touchups! Most of us wore false lashes and they were very comfortable and light. They accentuated each of our individual attributes and made us all appear flawless (which is very important on wedding day!).
So very talented!! Thank you Violet Noir Artistry!!
