I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for doing my makeup (and Megan's) for my wedding. You did an amazing job and I really appreciate how you listened to my concerns and questions, and nothing was too much to ask for you. You made me feel very at ease and beautiful on a special day for me - Denise, July 2018

My sister and I were lucky to have Kathryn do our make-up, on my big day.  Kathryn consulted with me to ensure that I was getting the look I wanted. The look was better than what I expected and exactly what I wanted.  Kathryn listened to how I liked to wear make-up and provided a more natural look.  I highly recommend Kathryn as I couldn't have been happier with how lovely a job she did - Imogen Featherstone, October 2017

Kathryn is amazing! She did the makeup for my mother, bridesmaids and me for my wedding and I can't fault her. She's so friendly, professional and has great attention to detail - Clara Le Leu, October 2017

Kathryn did my makeup as a Bridesmaid for a friend's wedding – I’m not one to wear a lot of makeup and Kathryn made me comfortable in the makeup that I was wearing. She has that natural look down pat and doesn’t use too much makeup to clog your pores. And it stayed on the whole day! Love your work! - Kristen Martens, October 2017

Just wanted to drop you a note to thank you so very much for being a part of our wedding day. I actually don't even know where to start - our make-up was so amazing! It was exactly what I wanted (even though I could barely describe to you what I wanted haha). All of us girls felt so beautiful on the day and we owe that to you. Beyond that, you made the whole process so stress-free and easy. You were such a calming force during all of the planning and especially on the day. We seriously cannot thank you enough! - Melissa Watkins, October 2017

Kathryn did makeup for myself and 3 bridesmaids and the results were stunning. We couldn't have asked for a nicer, more professional or talented makeup artist for the big day! - Tracy Baker, September 2017

Kathryn did my wedding makeup last weekend and it looked fantastic! I don’t wear a lot of makeup normally and was apprehensive but she made me feel comfortable and the end result was far better than expected. All of the ladies that she did looked wonderful, would definitely recommend!! - Hayley Wood, May 2017

Kathryn is an absolute gem! She did makeup for myself, 3 bridesmaids and my mum for my wedding and was so friendly and so professional. She is extremely talented and knew exactly what to do when we told her we don't wear makeup very often and wanted it to look as natural as possible. Will definitely be recommending her to everyone I know! - 
Lucy Long, May 2017

Kathryn was lovely to deal with. She was friendly, organised and professional and it meant there was one less stress to worry about on my wedding day. Kathryn listened to what I wanted and made some great recommendations. I couldn’t have been happier with my, my bridesmaids and my mum’s makeup. Thank you Kathryn! I would recommend you to anyone! - Jess Finlay, April 2017

You really went above and beyond (getting your dad to drop off your hair straightener ;p) and the girls and I were so pleased with our makeup. You made us feel like a million dollars and the photos turned out great. You were professional in your approach, easy going, friendly, warm, and an absolute pleasure to have around - Breanne, March 2017

Kathryn is super talented and really listens to make sure you get what you want. She did my makeup for my wedding and I couldn’t be happier with how the makeup turned out!! Highly recommend - Tegan Kerr, February 2017

Kathryn was a joy to have do my makeup and my two beautiful bridesmaids makeup for my recent December wedding. The whole process from booking to trial to wedding day was so simple and easy which helped to put me at ease during such an important planning process and day. Our makeup was flawless and made my bridesmaids and I feeling absolutely beautiful from the time it was applied in the early afternoon until long after the last dance of the night. We received so many compliments, I would highly recommend Kathryn! Thank you so much - Samantha Adam, December 2016

Kathryn did my make up for my year 12 formal and she did an amazing job. She was professional and friendly which made the whole experience so easy and stress-free! She also kept asking me questions to make sure i was satisfied with what she was doing, and even added her own personal touches. I would definitely recommend - Sarah Cantwell, November 2016

I didn't initially plan to have my makeup professionally done. My fiancé convinced me to do a bit of research so I could have the perfect wedding day, and I'm so glad he did. I was given Kathryn's number from a friend and she was so amazing. I was super impressed first off by her reasonable prices and inclusions. She was always professional and prompt in her replies via email. When I met her, she was super friendly and welcoming, reassuring me that I could be honest in my opinions and welcome to change my mind ! My trial was awesome and gave me a really good idea of what I wanted for the day and allowed me to tweak things so they were perfect. On my wedding day, she was professional and encouraging, getting two bridesmaids, a flower girl and my self done up in no time. All of us felt beautiful thanks to Kathryn, and I couldn't have had my perfect wedding day without her!   Rebecca Eling, November 2016

If you want to feel beautiful KM Makeup is the right lady for you. I woke up in the morning feeling horrible about myself. After she left I felt like a princess. I had so much confidence. thank you so much. Can not wait for another event just to get all pretty again - Sammie Davis, November 2016.

Kathryn did the makeup for my wedding, and my 2 bridesmaids! The makeup was incredible! The eyes alone were perfect!  Kathryn was a pleasure to work with, and will recommend to everyone. Thanks for making the morning so relaxed and stress-free! - Courtney.I, October 2016

I booked Kathryn in January 2016 for a wedding in October 2016. I did not meet Kathryn until the morning of the wedding. I provided a photo of myself so she could see my face shape and colouring, the colour of my dress and style I was looking for. Kathryn turned up at 4am as booked. An extremely early start for the day but that didn't phase her. She completed my makeup and it was amazing. She then proceeded to complete the makeup for 2 of my daughter in-laws. They also looked amazing. Kathryn purchased the lipstick I required for the day and when the makeup was all done, I purchased that from her to be able to do touch ups on the run.     I cannot praise Kathryn enough, her professionalism, her ability and most of all her passion for getting the perfect result. Highly recommend her for any makeup requirements - Lorna D, October 2016.

I am very thankful that Kathryn did my makeup on my wedding day, not only is she an amazing woman that I loved spending the morning with, she made me look perfect. My makeup lasted the whole day (dancing and all), my makeup felt light on my face and was the exact look I was hoping for. She made me feel like a princess. I couldn't have asked for a better person to have part of our special day. Thank you Kat!! - Marissa.L, September 2016

I would love to say a massive thank you for doing my makeup on my wedding day. It was amazing and I have never felt so beautiful before. You are amazing at what you do. Thank you so much - Kellie Britton, September 2016

My entire experience with Kathryn was fabulous.  She listened to what I was looking for and provided great suggestions during the initial consultation.  Afterwards, I contacted her to request some minor changes for the big day and she was very happy to accommodate.  She arrived fully prepared on the day of the wedding and did my makeup and my two bridesmaids' makeup absolutely flawlessly.  It was a pleasure to work with her and will definitely use her again in the future!  Jennifer Nelson, August 2016

Kathryn did a great job! She spent the time to make sure my makeup was as I wanted. She also did my mum's makeup which looked beautiful - Katy G, June 2016.

Kathryn did mine and my bridal parties makeup for my wedding last month. The makeup was more than perfect & was just as I had envisioned for the day. She ensured that I didn't leave the house looking anything less than perfect - I can not thank Kathryn enough for all her hard work on our special day x - Shayla Wood, March 2016.

Kathryn did my makeup for my wedding and what can I say....WOW!! I loved it :-).  I had my makeup applied at 7am and it lasted till 12 midnight, with only a need to apply lipstick. Not only was the makeup perfect but Kathryn had to wake up bright and early at 3:30am to come and do my makeup in the middle of nowhere for an early ceremony. Great makeup, excellent punctuality and amazing professionalism. Thanks again Kathryn - April Ager,  January 2016.

Kathryn did my makeup for New Year's Eve. I was super happy with the end result, she did an amazing job!! She listened to how I wanted my makeup done along with adding her own special touches. I found Kathryn very experienced, professional and easy to get along with.  I'd definitely recommend Kathryn to anyone wanting to get their makeup done. I'll definitely be back to get my makeup done by Kathryn for my next event - Kat Doyle,  December 2015.

Thank you Kathryn for helping my daughter with her skincare routine and makeup. Her skin has improved tremendously since your session which has also helped with her confidence. Your skincare advice was excellent, cost effective and more importantly easy to implement. You also gave Kate many useful makeup tips that she uses very successfully. The way you communicated your extensive knowledge was brilliant, Kate could easily relate to and understand everything you covered. Kate had a great time, she learnt so much and now takes her skincare seriously. Thank you again Kathryn we highly recommend your outstanding services! – Kitty Wilson,  December 2015

Kathryn did my make up for my year twelve formal and I could not have been happier with it. Not only did she prepare two pages of images of makeup I had told her I had wanted, she spoke to me every step of the way throughout doing my makeup, keeping me updated with what she was doing and making sure I liked what she was doing. She worked with dedication and care, ensuring I was always happy and comfortable. The end product was amazing and I would definitely book my makeup with Kathryn again as I know I would be in excellent hands – Jennifer Bottega,  December 2015

I was referred to Kathryn because I wanted a makeup artist for the staff photos on our new website.  The makeup really helped give a professional look to our staff and everyone was very happy with the results.  Kathryn is a delight to work with.  She understood what we wanted to achieve and made everyone feel very comfortable, including the male staff!  I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her - Theresa Orme, Parker Financial Services,  November 2015

Kathryn took the time and care to give me the most beautiful makeup on my wedding day. She was professional, punctual and completely prepared for both my makeup trial and my wedding day - while also being very kind, supportive and considerate. She really listened to me and understood exactly the kind of natural look I was after, and made sure I was happy and comfortable through every step. I was so impressed with her skills and experience, and I was so delighted with how I looked when it came time to put on my wedding dress. Kathryn, thank you so much for making me feel so special and beautiful on my wedding day - Rebecca Frewer,   November 2015
