“Kelsey Bonifacio has worked with me and for me several times. Not only is Kelsey super talented, professional & respectful she is kindhearted. I highly recommend this talented artist in any workplace as her artistic range is next level.”

Holly Jones

"On camera presenting for a top rated morning show in a fast paced news room environment is a physical and mental marathon. But this race to bring news to viewers also demands a polished appearance.  Kelsey Bonifacio has the remarkable talent and temperament to excel in this environment. She instils trust in all the on air talent that she will make them shine in all the right ways. And her warm and personable nature is sorely missed when not on set. It's an honour to have my face made up on the daily by Kelsey. She is excellent.”

“Kelsey did my make up for my bridal shower and for my bachelorette party and I couldn’t have been more in love with the work she did. My bridal shower was a lemon boho chic theme and I felt gorgeous. It was an extremely hot day and my make up didn’t sweat off at all as I took a few photos outside. As for my bachelorette I wanted a pop of colour and she absolutely SLAYED! I felt so sexy, I LOVE LOVE LOVED it so much! Each time I gave her freedom to do basically whatever she wanted with a few inspiration pictures, she exceeded my exceptions each time!  I HIGHLY recommend Kelsey for any of your events.  She is extremely versiltile, personable, professional, and honestly who could resist her sweet dimples. Thank you Kelsey for always killing it in the make up industry!”

“Kelsey was the makeup artist for my brothers wedding reception. I located her on Instagram and found her via a random search as I knew few in the field. I could not have been luckier with my find because Kelsey is extremely talented, flexible, creative, versatile and most importantly very professional. She always responded to my queries within minutes and worked with me to not only achieve the look I was hoping for but elevated it with her own creativity. It was a pleasure to work with her and I would highly recommend her for any event.”

​“Kelsey is a gifted makeup artist and hairstylist who is an absolute delight to work with. She has the ability to let you be you - just a little better in all the right places. Her keen awareness of colour and flair has a freshness about it that gives the appearance of not being overdone. 

If you are looking to update your look, have an important event or milestone to celebrate or just wanting to learn some of the tricks of the trade Kelsey will make sure you get exactly what you are looking for.  I have recommended Kelsey in the past and would do so in a heartbeat again.”

“Kelsey is an absolute pleasure to work with. Not only is she a gifted artist who will make you look and feel your best, but her love for her craft shines through from the moment you meet her. She is a joy to be around and I’m lucky I get to start my day with such a kind and talented makeup artist every day on CP24.”

“Where do I begin about the incredible talent that is Kelsey?I'm so grateful I got to meet such a kind talented, personbable & humble artist... it's not everyday you meet someone like that!  As part of a breakfast show that requires extremely early waking, in my opinion it is imperative that someone working so closely with you (in this case, my face)  exudes the traits listed above.  Kelsey always goes above & beyond.  She ensures her station is always clean & sanitized, she takes extra measures when sanitizing products before anything meets my face, checks in with me during her makeup application to see if I want anything different (which is basically never the case), all while keeping a VERY close eye on time to make sure I'm "on air" ready.  I could go on about how she just 'gets me & my face' and I'm always left in awe of how amazing she makes me look & feel.  There would be no doubts in recommending Kelsey for her services, she's A+ in my books!”

“I absolutely loved having the opportunity to have my hair and makeup done by Kelsey. Between discussing my style inspiration and coming to my condo early in the morning, she made the entire process simple and fun. I have never looked better or felt more confident and I cannot wait to book her again for future events!”


Bridal Guest Client 


“I’ve been sitting in Kelsey’s chair for four years now, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. She’s warm, friendly, funny, and - most importantly - really good at her job. I know I’ll look good on TV every morning at 5AM, even though I’m not always fully “awake” just yet. The relationship with a makeup artist is a special one, and I’m lucky to be in Kelsey’s safe hands.”

“Kelsey did a fantastic job for my wedding makeup trial, she is patient , outgoing, and very talented at what she does. I loved the fact that she was very open to my ideas and would not hesitate to implement them! I would recommend Kelsey for any of your special event needs!”


Future Bridal Client 


“I have known Kelsey for many years now, and since the very first time she did my makeup, I have had no one else compare! She knows what looks amazing on anyone no matter what your hair color or style is and compliments what you wear to any event.  She did my makeup for my wedding day, and I looked and felt stunning and completely at ease.  I will never have my makeup done by anyone else, she really is the best!” 


Bridal Client 


“Kelsey is an absolute dream to work with. Whenever I slipped into her chair, I knew I was in good hands. Kelsey always took the time to listen to what look I was after and every single time, blew my expectations away. On top of her incredible skill, Kelsey just has a way with people. An hour with is like an hour with your best friend, except you leave feeling your most beautiful self.”

“For an actor, your headshot is what gets you “in the room”, so to speak.  It’s the currency agencies/directors deal in - before the audition.  Kelsey nailed the natural makeup look needed for headshots and I couldn’t be more thrilled! I had quite an early shoot and she managed to brighten my face up without taking away from the natural lines in my face. She was quick & efficient and not a single “touch up” under those hot lights, was needed! Highly recommend!”

Tom Finn 



“There are a lot of good makeup artists out there, but only a few who fall in the great category. Kelsey is someone who is not only great, but someone who truly cares about her art. As a South Asian woman, matching the right foundation is key for me and Kelsey understood that from day one. She took the challenge on with so  much grace and worked so hard to perfect it day after day until I was fully satisfied. And let me tell you, I wish she would do my makeup for life! Don’t even get me started on her liner game, we’ll be here forever. She’s a true artist.”

"I absolutely loved my time with Kelsey! I utilized Kelsey's expertise to help with a professional photo shoot for my work in addition to having a make-up and hair 'lesson' to build out this look into my everyday life.  Kelsey has this incredible ability to capture who you are and bring this to life in the best way for photos and videos. I was beyond thrilled with the results of our first session together that I wanted to actually learn some of her tips and tricks for everyday make-up and hair. The lesson with Kelsey was so valuable and I now have the confidence to play with my make-up and hair that makes me feel more like myself no matter what occasion.  Kelsey is also lots of fun, easy to connect with and immediately puts you at ease. Highly recommend booking a session with Kelsey and also treating yourself to a make-up and hair lesson. You will enjoy the process and have tips and tricks that will stay with you for a while!"
