I’ve known Kate for years and her makeup artistry is incredible, she’s the only one I would trust to do my wedding hair and makeup! I was super calm all morning while we were getting ready because I knew I was in the best hands. Kate was super positive and was able to accommodate all of the last minute changes. My makeup was exactly the boho look I was going for and I had heaps of compliments on the day about how natural it looked. It also lasted all night and into the next day! I didn’t want to take it off because it looked so good! Kate uses top quality products and I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for the best service and product that lasts while you party the night away.
I loved having Kate as my hair and makeup artist for my wedding! She was patient with my pickiness, helpful with suggestions and never pressured me to do something I didn't want. She helped me create my perfect look, soft and natural yet glamorous all the same. She did all this with great banter too! Kate was friendly and relaxed, whilst staying professional in her work. I couldn't recommend her more.
Kate did my hair and makeup for my wedding and it was everything I had hoped for. She listened to what I wanted and gave really good advice when I asked her for her opinion on getting the perfect look to compliment our style of wedding. Kate is very professional and gels well with all walks of life. I found Kate's services to be very well priced and her skill with hair and makeup is incredible. I would highly recommend booking Kate if you want to feel relaxed and look spectacular on your special day!
