Katie’s favourite part about her job is meeting new people, and listening and learning about their makeup and hair ideas in order to create a customized look. It brings great joy to her to see the smiles on her client’s faces when she hands them a mirror once their makeup and hair styling is completed.
A favourite product that Katie can’t live without: MAC Pro Longwear Paint Pot for prepping the eye area for makeup. It ensures that your eyeshadow lasts for hours and hours through any conditions. Colours blend seamlessly and pigments really pack a punch when applied over this lid primer. It is a favourite of mine when working on set. An actor’s makeup stays flawless for an entire 12 + hour shoot day. It never lets me down!inquire now
