    I have not gotten to work with Katie yet, but I am definitely planning to do so! I live out of state, and am getting married in South Carolina, and I spoke with Katie about having my make up done for the wedding. She was so helpful and always responded to my emails! I cannot wait to work with her!

    She made my wedding that much better! Very impressed by Katie's work. Loved the whole experience, she is wonderful and definitely knows what she's doing!! She did both hair & makeup for a few of my girls and I. Loved how she worked with such joy and excitement, did not take long at all and it was just perfect! I highly recommend her.

    Katie did makeup & hair for my sisters wedding and she did a beautiful job & she was well priced. She inspired me to get into the industry myself, in doing so she was a great mentor & years later, now that I see what a challenging job it can be, I think I am even more grateful for her services.

    Katie did my hair and make up for my wedding and did an outstanding job! She's very talented at what she does and customized a look that worked for me and my special day! I would recommend her to anyone that needs hair and makeup for a wedding prom or any other special occasion!

    Katie did my hair & make-up for my wedding a year ago, and I was extremely satisfied! She is definitely professional, personable, and knowledgeable of her craft! I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for flawless hair & make-up! She's also very reasonably priced! I'd give her 10 stars if I could! :)

    Katie Cotton did make up and hair for the bride who was my daughter, myself, and the maid of honor who was my other daughter, plus girls in the bridal party, she did an excellent job with everyone, the colors she chose for everyone looked perfect and the hair styles were amazing, I can't say enough, it was an awesome job all around.

Q&A

Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.
I try to lease things as uncomplicated as possible, however, different jobs simply vary the pricing because of the skill, times frame and product used. Please contact me and give all the details of the production and we can go from there!
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I was raised in a theatre with my dad doing set design and my mom doing costume design! So now I ask you, is it any wonder i become a makeup artist?!
What types of customers have you worked with?
My most common workload in South Carolina is my bridal clients. I still love doing production work. I love fashion photoshoots and i love love love boudoir photography. I do the boudoir photography myself for those whom are interested.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Look at the work and read reviews if they are available. You want to know that others were happy with your artist. You also need to know that they are sanitary and have developed a foundation for working in this industry.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
There is a LOT that goes into being a makeup artist. You need a natural skill of course, but also you need a lot of dedication to learning as new products and new skills will always be developed. You must constantly be doing research and interacting with others in the industry. Another thing many don't think of is the cost to a makeup artist. Many think that the price an artist charges (and this goes for all artistic professions; photographers, painters, etc) is all a profit for them. This is simply not the case. In order to have the best products on the market, you must constantly be replenishing your makeup kit. Also, you have to continue buy new products to make sure they are fresh. There is also a lot of time and money spent when not working ,developing relationships with clients, advertising, travel, etc. A lot goes into the determination of the price quote for a project.
