Hi & welcome!
If you've made it here you're probably engaged (congratulations!) & exploring artists for your wedding day. I'm Kat & i'm so pleased you're considering having me as a part of your day!
My professional journey...
My mum tells me that at age 10 I announced that I wanted to be a makeup artist & all the way through my teens my dream job never changed! I studied art & then went on to a degree in Hair & Makeup Design for Music, Film & Photography at Southampton Uni. It was the first time in my life i'd ever been top of the class & I won an award & graduated with a First Class Hons in 2010. I then did an internship for the makeup company Illamasqua & there I met an artist working in film & commercials. I went on to assist her for 4 years, absorbing all the skills & techniques I possibly could & developing a meticulous attention to detail.
After a decade of working in TV, film & theatre & doing weddings on the side I realised that my passion lies in the wonderful, sunny world of weddings & bridal & as cheesy as it sounds, I've never looked back! I've always loved helping people to feel good about themselves & I'm so grateful to every person who puts their trust in me to support them on one of the biggest days of their lives.
Fresh, glowing makeup & effortless looking hair is where I thrive. My style is all about enhancing your natural beauty & features & drawing from your own individual style to create a look that feels like your best version of you. My years of experience creating stage & film hair & makeup & working with hundreds of brides means that I know how to create camera ready looks that last.
Some things I love...
I love yoga, live music, travelling & dip my toe in astrology. I will talk anyones ear off who'll listen about skin care & the latest beauty devices (this is probably where most of my spare money goes)!
I'm a vegetarian & love animals. I have a very friendly cat named Pearl, who has a lot more dog mannerisms than cat.
I'm currently working on moving my kit to be fully cruelty free & my goal is to be there by 2025.
