Added to all of this experience is Kate’s laid back natural style that makes her the industry insiders favourite makeup artist. Kate counts many Irish celebrities, models and magazine editors as her personal clients.
"Kate, a huge thank you for doing the hair and make up of the bridal party for our wedding. Everyone was so pleased with the results and I absolutely LOVED how you did my makeup and was complemented endlessly! It was so great to have the initial make-up trial with you as we got to swap ideas and I knew I was completely happy with my look so I could just relax on the day itself. All your correspondence to me was so prompt in response to any questions I had, and on the morning itself you were absolutely brilliant to have around - calm throughout despite the (inevitable) last minute rush and so easy to just chat away to making me really at ease. To any budding brides out there, I really can't recommend Kate enough - super skilled, really friendly and she made me look and feel a million dollars. Thank you so much, L x"
"Kate was a wonderful choice for my wedding make-up. In the lead up to the event Kate was responsive, receptive and knowledgeable and really helped me to define the vision of what I was looking for. On the wedding day, Kate was the consummate professional, she did my make-up as well as the make-up for seven others with ease and grace. The make-up was beautiful on the day and photographed excellently. I could not have asked for a more perfect makeup artist!"
"I met Kate about 10 months before my wedding. She immediately put me at ease and knew instinctively what products would work well with my skin type and colour. After a test makeover and trialing different lipsticks in varying lights, I booked Kate without hesitation. It wasn’t the most straightforward gig for Kate as she had to locate a remote French medieval village perched on-top of a hill to get to my wedding! But nothing was too much trouble and she was charming on the day – professional, efficient and the results were wonderful! And I cannot stress how amazing it was that the make-up stayed in-tact ALL day. Through the August heat, emotions, drinking and dancing - it still looked fresh into the early hours."
