Katie’s Story

Thank you for taking the time to visit my website!

Makeup artistry and hair styling has always been a huge passion of mine, even as a child I used to dress up in my Mum’s necklaces, (not so expertly) put her eyeshadows on my face and place velcro rollers in my hair. As I grew up, during my teenage years I experimented with blushers, eyeshadows and lipsticks from drugstore brands and taught myself how to braid hair (which at this point was a way to manage my unruly thick, wavy long hair!).

My love for makeup and hair led me to The Iver Makeup Academy in 2016, where I acquired all the skills and techniques to become a professional makeup and hair artist. I was taught an abundance of skills and worked on a variety of different faces which helped me improve massively. The training I received there was with some of the best artists in the industry, and I even had the opportunity to meet and be taught by amazing artists such as Tina Earnshaw, Tamara Tott and Lan Nguyen-Grealis.

In the past 3 years I have built up my portfolio working with Brides to create their perfect look suited to their own personal style. Not only have I assisted amazing artists, but I have worked along side a team of artists, taking on Weddings on my own. I now have multiple Weddings a year, with my weekends in Wedding season almost always being full.

Being based in Newbury, Berkshire, I am in a prime location to work in Berkshire, Hampshire, Oxfordshire and London.
