If you are still questioning “Do I bother to get a professional to do my makeup, or should I just do it myself?”, then ask no more. Spending the money on a professional makeup artist is well worth the investment. A professional will know all of the tricks to make your makeup last longer and look flawless for your professional photos. Everyday makeup is a lot different to professional makeup products and application. Often where flash photography is used, the light of the flash will literally filter through the makeup and leave you looking like you have no makeup on at all! Professional application and camera worthy products will keep all of your blemishes and bags covered. 

Katie will listen to what YOU want, and adapt your ideas to best suit your own features. Her product knowledge and tips will also assist you with your future makeup application.

She chooses to use a range of different products that she has personally tried, tested and loved: Elementwo, Kett Cosmetics, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, Inglot, Benefit Cosmetics, Ben Nye, Graftobian, Revlon, Max Factor, MAC
