In addition to the below, reviews can be found on my Facebook page.
“Having been at the mercy of many a make-up artist over the years and cringed at the results – it’s been a pleasure to work with Kate who always manages to achieve that “un-made up look” which is so difficult to achieve! One comment I received from someone having watched the “transatlantic sessions” series was “she’s a lovely singer and she doesn’t wear much make-up either”. Little did he know I’d spent the previous hour in Kate’s good hands! – a true artist.”
“Kate does an amazing job. Her work is perfect for me as a photographer because I love to capture the true character of the bride, her bridesmaids or her mum in a totally natural way. She enhances with a lightness of touch which allows my pictures to show the real woman behind the makeup – it’s a subtlety that many makeup artists I’ve worked with don’t possess. Kate’s wealth of experience and manner also mean her brides are completely calm and relaxed in the run up to their wedding – a quality not to be undervalued!”
Ashley Coombes, Photographer
“Just fantastic. Kate made me feel so relaxed and was incredibly professional in her approach. Her experience, knowledge and ability to understand exactly what look I’d like to create was exceptional. It was lovely to have somebody so experienced in their field involved in such an important day of my life.”
“Kate is a wonderful make-up artist and a fantastic person to have around on the morning of your wedding. She was a calming presence as me and my 4 bridesmaids got ready and she made us all look and feel perfect. I was delighted with my make-up – it felt natural but looked dramatic enough to complement the style of my dress and headpiece and it lasted all day.
My bridesmaids were beautifully flawless and the pictures looked fantastic. She went above and beyond her call of duty as she helped position my headpiece as one of the last things we did before we left to go to the church. I have lovely memories of my very happy wedding day and it all started when Kate arrived in the morning.”
“Kate was fantastic! She really listened to what I wanted, suggested ideas herself that worked perfectly for what I was looking for and made a lovely job of my hair and make-up on the day. Plus she’s great fun, and was a really calming influence on the morning of the wedding!”
“Kate was amazing. She did my bridal make up as well as my mum’s and my bridesmaid. She listened and understood exactly what I wanted for my wedding day. On the day she was so lovely and put us all at ease. I was so happy with how it turned out and it stayed beautiful all day and night! I would wholeheartedly recommend her.”
“Kate is a first class make-up artist, with the ability to achieve a totally natural effect – as if there’s no make-up going on at all. And just as importantly, she has a calm and warm approach which is exactly what you need when under pressure. I would recommend her whole-heartedly. She is totally professional as well as reassuring and supportive – and fun to have around!”
Sally Beamish, Composer
“Kate was the ideal choice as make up artist for my wedding day. So calm and exactly what you need to steady the nerves and leave you feeling a million dollars! The perfect start to a perfect day.”
Jenna Reid, Musician
“Having worked with Kate professionally in the media for years, I knew there was only one person I wanted to do my make-up the day I got married. Her friendly and thoughtful nature made for a stress-free and relaxing morning as she swiftly got through all the bridal party. Her attention to detail, artistic knowledge and understanding exactly what’s right for each individual left everyone feeling and looking gorgeous! Kate’s a true professional with bags of experience”
“As dèidh obrachadh le Kate airson bliadhnaichean sna meadhanan, bha fhios agam gur i an aon tè a bha mi ag iarraidh son mo mhaise-gnùise a dhèanamh an latha a phòs mi. Le a nàdar càirdeil is coibhneil, b’ e madainn socair, furasta a bh’ againn, is fhuair i tron phàrtaidh bainnse gun trioblaid. Leis cho mionaideach, cruthachail agus tuigseach sa tha i mu feumalachdan gach duine, dh’ fhàg sin a h-uile duine a’ faireachdainn is a’ coimhead àlainn! Tha Kate gu tur proifeiseanta le eòlas air leth.”

“Kate is everything you need in a make-up artist; friendly, calm and professional. You’re put at ease from the minute you meet her, she listens and takes on board what you want and more importantly what you don’t want. Always a perfect result which is why I have loved working with her for over 10 years.”
Sarah Cruikshank, Presenter.
“No matter where of how chaotic the shoot, Kate always creates a corner of calm. Her wholehearted attitude and professionalism is the same, whether working with models, readers or celebrities: she makes everyone feel and look great and able to face the camera with confidence.”
