Wanted to hire her but never even responded after the first quote.Mar 9, 2018Verified
Katie is wonderful! From our initial conversations, through my makeup trial, onto the wedding, and even after the festivities she was responsive, professional, and a joy to work with. She was happy to listen to what I really wanted for my hair and makeup and made style changes from the trial to the final wedding day without question. My maid of honor and my fiance's and my mothers also got their makeup done and were equally thrilled with her work! Katie was able to accomplish personalized results for all of us that looked amazing in the photos, even during an evening wedding.May 17, 2017Verified
Katie was awesome! She did the trial for my wedding makeup and when I told her I was thinking of switching it up, she offered to do a second one before the wedding! On the wedding day, it snowed quite a bit and even though she lives 45 minutes away from me, she was on time! This was at 8 on the morning! I was very satisfied with my makeup and it lasted all day. Even though she gave me a touch up kit too I didn't even need to use it!May 4, 2017Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Typically I charge $150 for bridal makeup and $75 per for bridesmaids makeup. I do, however, offer discounts for Thumbtack users, so pricing on Thumbtack quotes may vary slightly from these rates.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I send a brief questionnaire covering details such as eye and hair color, style preferences, day-to-day habits, etc. I also ask a new client to send several inspiration photos or their pinterest board, to get a better idea of what exactly they're looking for. If they are unsure, I send them several samples based on general criteria and then have them choose favorites. I then schedule a complimentary trial application where I learn more about their skin type and skincare habits. I typically schedule these appointments in the morning so that clients can wear their makeup/hair throughout the day to test its longevity. I use a fair amount of mineral makeup, and I just love how it settles into the skin over time and becomes increasingly more radiant and glowing rather than losing color as some makeup can do.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I studied makeup and Esthetics at the Aveda Institute in Denver, CO
