My name is Kate, owner of 'Makeup Art By Kate' based in Gippsland.

A little about me, I began my Professional Makeup and Hairstyling career in 2012 after studying a Diploma of specialist makeup services a the Academy of Makeup in South Yarra.  I sent the first 5 years working as a special effects makeup artist and hairstylist in the Independent Film industry. I then moved into doing music videos and worked allot in advertising shooting TV commercials, in and around Melbourne

My transition into bridal work happened organically, I started small, just doing a couple for friends and quickly realised how much I love it. 

It is a really special thing to be a small part of someones big day and I work hard to make sure the mornings prep runs smoothly, you and your bridal party are taken care of and most importantly - That you feel amazing in your own skin.

I offer a personalised service by working in collaboration with my clients to design their perfect hairstyle and makeup look. If you prefer to wear more natural makeup, full glam, or perhaps big textured hair or a smooth classic bun, Im always happy to make the changes you want and suggest ideas when you're not too sure where to start. 

I have recently opened my home makeup studio, situated in beautiful Hill End, just 5 minutes from Blue Rock Lake in Gippsland. My business is also fully mobile and I will travel to you at your wedding location. 

If you think I might be a good fit for your wedding, pop over to the contact page and share some details with me regarding what you would like for your wedding day.


I look forward to chatting with you.
