“As I flick through Catherine’s portfolio, I cannot help but feel in awe of her work. Her work is subtle yet strong, eye catching yet understated. Training part time, Catherine gave up a successful career in book publishing and fulfilled her dream of becoming a make-up artist. These days, with a jam-packed diary and a reputation to be proud of, she creates flawless looks on her clients.” – Hot Courses
My name is Catherine Bailey, and I’m an award-winning, professional fashion and bridal make-up artist and hair stylist based in Reigate in Surrey. I trained at the highly respected London School of Beauty & Make-up, where I studied for my VTCT qualification, and then completed an intensive course in hair styling at AOFM in London.
Since graduating, I’ve done numerous fashion and beauty shoots, and my work has been featured on the covers of The Debut Magazine, Your London Wedding and Your Surrey Wedding magazines, and on a number of leading UK wedding blogs including B Loved, Rock My Wedding, Love My Dress, Smashing The Glass and Whimsical Wonderland Weddings.
I’m available for fashion and commercial photo shoots, head shot make-up, individual and group make-up lessons, and hair and make-up for special occasions and weddings in London and Surrey only…though I may be tempted out to do a wedding in Santorini or Mykonos!
The areas that I cover include Reigate, Redhill, Earlswood, Nutfield, Godstone, Kingswood, Salfords, Horley, Gatwick, Crawley, Three Bridges, Betchworth, Dorking, Gomshall, Chilworth, Shalford, Guildford, Godalming, Farncombe, Esher, Coulsdon South, Purley, Kenley, Norwood, East Croydon, Leatherhead, Ashtead, Epsom, Ewell West, Stoneleigh, Worcester Park, Motspur Park, Raynes Park, Earlsfield, Wimbledon, Surbiton, Kingston, New Malden, Hinchley Wood, Claygate, Oxshott, Cobham, Esher, Clapham, New Cross and most of LONDON.
