Obsessed with her mother's dressing table from the age of three, once Kate O'Reilly discovered that being a makeup artist could be a job it was all she wanted to do. Inspired by the work of Kevyn Aucoin and her fascination with old Hollywood icons, she trained with Makeup Forever & MAC Cosmetics before going out on her own in 2007.
Kate now works the international Fashion Week circuit and assists the biggest names in the makeup industry on shoots for Vogue and Elle magazine. She works on editorials and advertising campaigns for fashion and lifestyle brands, is a regular on camera contributor to Xpose on TV3 and collaborates with celebrities to create their magazine covers and red carpet looks.
