Do you have an artistic project in mind?



Kat has done my makeup for both photo shoots as well as for various events. I highly recommend her especially if you are looking for someone who can work with darker skin tones. Professional service as well as talented artistry. You won’t be disappointed!

Kat is truly a gifted artist. I have had my make up done by her a number of times and each time she amazes me. Her energy is magnetic and work is precision. She knows skin care and makes sure you look like you and not costume make up. Thanks Kat!

Kat really listened to what I wanted and created a look that matched my personality but was also exciting and edgy. She has a great sense of what you want and will also make great suggestions. I wish I booked her for my wedding 5 years ago!
