About Me

Make-up artist in London

Portrait by Kristina Gasperas

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 her 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
