My bridesmaid suffers from vitiligo and has severe patchy skin on her face and neck from brown to pure white, kate with her expertise blended makeup and made her face and neck flawless. Truely fantastic”

“I feel very lucky to have found kate. It was a booking at short notice as I was let down by my hairdresser and consequently my make-up lady too. I met her for the first time 2 days before my wedding day. Her easy going manner and fab sense of humour was just what I needed after a stressful few days. She is incredibly professional, reliable and she gave me the start on my wedding day that I needed as I felt completely relaxed. The results were fantastic because I still looked like me, but on a fantasticly good day! I can’t thank her enough.”

“Having found kate on a search engine I was drawn to her for the professional look of her website, helpful before and after shots of previous work, her accreditations and tv work! Kate was always prompt with communication and was very personable. As soon as I met her for my trial I knew I would proceed with the booking as her talent was undeniable and she made me feel very safe in her hands! I had no doubt that she would make me look perfect on the day and even gave me lots of advice on skin care regimes running up to the wedding. She even gave me her own hair accessories to take away with me so I could find similar before the wedding as I was having difficulty finding the right hair wrap. I had every confidence in kate and therefore went ahead and confirmed my booking with her. I would recommend her time and time again.”

“Brilliant communication, skill and personality! Would recommend kate to anybody. Such beautiful beautiful make up, made all my bridal party feel a million dollars! Kate takes time and care whilst completing your make up as she knows its a very important day and want you looking the best! Very talented lady that knows all skin types, this really makes her stand out from other artists!”
