Gen is professional, fast and talented!
I had a shoot on a 40-degree humid day, and not only did she make me look like a supermodel, but the makeup did not move until I took it off at 2 am, more than 12 hours later! She nailed precisely the look that I wanted. She’s a true artist. I can’t wait to book her again!
It was a fantastic experience as my makeup looked natural and light.
I would definitely recommend Gen Waring as she is an amazing makeup artist with excellent listening skills and a lovely and warm personality.
Thank you very much Gen!
Felt like I knew her forever.
Excellent experience. Felt like I knew her forever. Listened to exactly what I wanted for my makeup.
Everyone should book her, and I will definitely be using her again!
The results speak for themselves!
Amazing! Hands down the best, most attentive makeup artist. Gen listens to what the client wants, and the results speak for themselves!
Gen was highly knowledgeable and would check in with me every step of the way to make sure I was satisfied with what she was doing!
Thank you so much again for how amazing I looked. It honestly gave me the confidence to be myself in front of the camera!
10/10 Gen. You're the best.
Gen is as kind and warm as she is talented!
I came in anxious and nervous about having my makeup professionally done, and she talked me through everything she was doing while making me a part of the process. I never felt like I was being pushed into looking a certain way, and the end result still looked like me but better!

Frequently Asked Questions
Before You Book
The number one reason why you should hire a professional makeup artist for your next event is simple, it lets you remove the stress from one more thing as you get ready for your day. There’s nothing worse than getting partway through your makeup, stressing out because it doesn’t quite look right and losing time as you need to start over.
With over a decade of industry experience in makeup, Waring Makeup has the expertise to make sure you look your best on your wedding day. This means they can help you plan months in advance the right look to match your skin type, tone, and colours for your wedding party. This expertise also means they can highlight your best features and give you extra confidence during your celebration. So take the easy, stress-free way of getting ready for your wedding and leave everything to your makeup artist.
Typically there's no suggested timeline for booking lifestyle makeup appointments. However, as you are planning for your next big event be mindful of what timeframe the date falls under as wedding season can be a very busy time for makeup artists resulting in limited availability.
To avoid disappointment it's always best practice to inquire early and put a deposit on your appointment to guarantee your booking.
When booking Waring Makeup, one of the first questions we have for our clients is if they have any skin sensitivities or allergies we should be aware of. It gives us the ability to work with you to figure out what will be the best products to use for your makeup session. This will be further addressed during your appointment so you can provide feedback to your artist regarding any discomforts you may have with the makeup used. Our ability to understand our client’s skin needs allows us to make sure you will feel and look your best.
Absolutely! Waring Makeup prides itself on working with a diverse range of clients and can accomplish the same high-quality work for every client no matter what skin tone they have. We have a complete kit of makeup suited to work with every skin tone and a foundation for every undertone. In addition, our portfolio page showcases a wide range of diversity without clients and should help alleviate any concerns you might have when booking your makeup artist.
Our goal is that your makeup artist should understand what concerns you have before your application starts so we can make you feel your best. Waring Makeup strives to make sure its clients feel comfortable sharing those concerns with us and being transparent on the best way to achieve the right look for you. Our skin preparation treatments will help the makeup apply smoothly and create a lasting look, while the products we use should help cover any scars or discolourations.
Tattoo cover-ups are one of the many services we offer for our clients. The time it will add to your appointment can vary due to the tattoo’s size, colour, location, and potential scarring. It will also cause the price of the tattoo cover-up to vary. Before booking, inquire about any possible tattoos you would like to cover up. This service requires a description of the tattoo, its location, and a photo of it ahead of your appointment.
Yes! Waring Makeup artists can travel to whatever location is easiest for clients to have their makeup done. Areas could include your home, office, studio, or alternative venues where you're preparing for your event. Applicable travel fees will be applied to your quote based on the distance required to travel.
Before Your Appointment
When a painter starts a new piece of art, they want to have a blank canvas. Therefore, we strongly recommend that our clients have a clean bare face before their makeup session. It allows your artist to apply the skin preparation properly and create the perfect flawless look for you. Removing existing makeup before applying new makeup means your skin will be agitated and less likely to receive fresh makeup properly.
In the weeks leading up to your appointment, it’s essential that you provide your makeup artist with images or inspirations for the type of makeup you’re looking to get done. It helps your artist understand how to give you the best look possible and explain what modifications might need to be made based on other considerations.
The night before your appointment, it’s essential to exfoliate your skin to help improve the skin preparation treatment, which will assist in making your makeup flow smoothly and evenly.
On the day of your appointment, just come as you are, clean bare face, no makeup required!
Your makeup artist will arrive up to 15 minutes before your first scheduled application begins at the agreed-upon location. This allows your artist to make sure they can set up their supplies and have proper lighting for your sessions. Ensure you have a clean designated area ready for your artist when they arrive and comfortable seating for you and others.
Application times can vary depending on which service you're booking.
Natural makeup appointments are usually 30 to 45 minutes.
Soft glam appointments are 45 to 60 minutes.
Full glam appointments are 60 minutes.
Ultra glam appointments are 90 minutes.
Every client has different inspirations regarding which look they feel is best for their next event. This is why we have our clients provide us with reference photos ahead of their appointment. This way, you can collaborate with your makeup artist to create the perfect look. You can rest assured that with over a decade of industry experience Waring Makeup can help guide you to feel confident about which look will be best for you.
The secret to lasting makeup starts with proper skin care and preparation before the makeup is applied. All our makeup services come with skin preparation or our premium skin preparation package to ensure your skin is ready to support a makeup application. Next is making sure high-quality products are used that have a track record of longevity for wear so you can avoid mishaps like your mascara bleeding everywhere. Finally, using a setting spray or finishing powder will help lock in your perfect look.
Lashes are a personal preference for every client, but there are a couple of things to consider ahead of time. First, if you’ve had lash extensions before and love how they look, go for it! However, if you’ve never had lash extensions before, we strongly recommend not getting them the day before your event. It could lead to an unexpected allergic reaction or not loving the look they give you (i.e. being too heavy or thick).
Strip lashes or single lashes can be a great alternative with lots of different styles to help complement the look you want to achieve for your wedding day. Waring Makeup offers a wide range of lash options, and you can discuss these options further before your appointment. The other great advantage of these lashes is that they can easily be removed at the night’s end and can be a lot lighter on the eyes, especially if you typically don’t wear lashes.
We can always work with our clients to incorporate their favourite products into their final look, whether you have a particular lipstick shade or eye shadow colour in mind. Just let us know ahead of time, preferably before your appointment, and we will create the perfect look for you.
While I have a wide range of products in my makeup kit, a few of my favourite brands include MAC Cosmetics, Too Faced, Makeup Forever, Morphe, and Duwop Cosmetics.
