When I was nineteen I left my hometown of Victoria, B.C. and started working as a singer/dancer on cruise ships. It didn’t take long for me to earn my sea legs and catch the travel bug.
Seven years and thirty seven countries later, I hung up my feather back pack, and high heels and moved to Toronto. Soon after I found myself performing eight shows a week in the hit musical Mamma Mia! For the first time in my life, my bank account was full and I had a consistent job for (almost) a year. My days were free so I decided to go to school and get my beauty certificate. With all my years of experience doing my own hair/makeup for stage, it made the most sense.
Before I finished school I was already working for companies like TD Bank, Loreal, and Lululemon. A couple years later I moved back to BC and started working for MAC Cosmetics.
In 2012 I realized I wanted to break out on my own so I formed Radiant Beauties. Today I’m a business owner AND a Mom of twin toddlers. I value my time and yours so when a past client refers me I know we’ll be a perfect fit.
So friend, how can I take care of you today?
"Krista and her team did an amazing job for my wedding! They did hair and makeup for myself, four bridesmaids and my mom! So, it was an early start! Krista is professional, punctual (everyone had their hair and makeup completed exactly at the times scheduled!), reliable, caring and funny! She made me feel at ease on the morning of my wedding, and was patient while working with me prior to the wedding to create the exact look that I wanted. She is incredibly talented and knew what I was talking about when I asked for makeup that was natural and still made me look like me! :) I also appreciated her flexibility and understanding when we had some last minute changes right before the wedding."
"Krista did an incredible job on my hair and makeup for my wedding day. I've never felt more beautiful and I am very grateful to have had her calming presence and care the morning of my wedding!"
"Krista was absolutely fabulous & I highly recommend her to anyone needing someone fun, relaxed & highly skilled with you on one of the craziest days of your life. She was super patient with me in the weeks leading up to the wedding as I tried to figure out what would look the most beautiful & work on one of the hottest summer days. She took someone who rarely does hair & makeup & made me feel confident, beautiful & totally radiant. She spent the morning with my bridesmaids & I getting ready & fit right in without missing a beat. I can't wait to work with her again!! xo”
