*UPDATE*: As of the beginning of 2017 I am no longer doing any makeup services due to health issues. My apologies in advance, and I hope to return in the future when I am well enough to work. Thank you for understanding and congratulations to all future brides!
Hello to all beautiful brides!
My name is Kate Norrell, and I provide on-location bridal and bridal party makeup applications. I am a trained Bobbi Brown/ Estee Lauder company artist and I use only professional grade products and tools (ie: Bobbi Brown, MAC, Laura Mercier, etc). I specialize in elegant, natural, and classic bridal makeup looks.
I personally only offer makeup services, traditional and airbrush, but I can always refer you to a hairstylist, photographer, etc. I am available for any of your bridal and bridal party needs leading up to the ceremony, including your bachelorette party or engagement photoshoot.
A wedding is a day to celebrate the union of two people who bring out the best in each other, and I believe it is my calling to help you look and feel your best for this special occasion.
I look forward to meeting each and every one of you!

I do not usually write reviews, but I have to let other brides know how much I enjoyed having Kate as my makeup artist. Of all my wedding vendors, she was the best- BY FAR!Sent on 09/19/2016
Even before I met Kate, from the conversations we had via email she was so professional and so nice! She has a super fun personality (calm, collected and stress-free attitude) and we got along great. She was on time and ahead of schedule both days. I do recommend a trial run for everyone as I usually do not wear a lot of makeup and for the trial run my eye shadow was a little darker than I prefer, but Kate was totally understanding and had the color just perfect for the big day.
On the day of the wedding, Kate blew my expectations out of the water. Most vendors charge extra to stick around until the wedding, for any last minute needed touch ups, so i assumed she would be leaving afterwards, but she totally surprised me when she said I am here until you walk down the aisle and she meant it!
Second off, I had only paid for three people, but the big day can get quite chaotic with everyone trying to look their best. My bridesmaids were asking Kate questions about their makeup and Kate could have just told them some tips, but she went the extra mile and actually told them to sit down and she helped them out with their makeup. I was just shocked at the superb service from her.
I have vacationed in the Seaside/Seagrove area since I was a child. Having an out of town wedding was not easy when it came to choosing vendors. I cannot say I was happy with all my vendors, but I can say I was extremely HAPPY with Kate. I highly recommend using Kate, you will be so happy that you did!

Kate did my makeup as well as many of my bridesmaid's, mother/grandmother of the bride/groom for my wedding. She was absolutely fantastic in every way possible and I am so glad that Volume One Salon recommends her to their clients, because she is truly the best! Her and Sonya traveled on site to a beach house that my family rented for my wedding week. It was so nice to not have to go anywhere and just relax and enjoy such a wonderful day. It was a bit rainy throughout the day, but the weather had no effect on my make up what so ever (just as Kate said, I might add!). Everyone looked and felt gorgeous and I couldn't have been more impressed with her services and friendly personality! I would definitely recommend her for your wedding or any event! She's the best!Sent on 04/26/2015

Kate does beautiful work that lasts all night and she's a wonderful person to work with!Sent on 04/05/2015
I have had the pleasure of working with Kate at weddings and she does wonderful work! As the photographer, I always notice when a brides makeup is done well for her facial features as well as long lasting and Kate never fails. Kate really knows what she is doing and is attentive to what will be great for you!
Kate is a fantastic makeup artist! She is professional, punctual, has a great kit with all the tools needed to do your makeup. She's easy to work with, which is so important---since so many times, you aren't sure what you want for makeup. She'll help you navigate through all of that by trying different things, and giving you her professional opinion in a way that's helpful to you! You'll love working with Kate the Great! :)
