Katô Makeup

Montreal’s premiere wedding makeup and eyelash extension service

Katô Makeup was founded in 2005 in Montreal to offer professional home service makeup and eyelash extension applications. The company quickly evolved into a full service beauty hot spot, with the addition of our studio and lash bar, product line, professional staff and training programs. Today we are considered among the best in Montreal for bridal makeup and eyelash extension applications.

Our mission is the same today as it always has been: we don’t believe beauty should come at the expense of humanity. We are proud to offer the highest quality wedding service, makeup applications and eyelash extensions with a friendly, personal touch. And it is still available either in our studio or wherever you need us.
