Impressed! No one redid any hair or makeup, it was perfect!
Before booking: Kate was super responsive and so easy to work with. She really took the time to listen to what I wanted.Sent on 01/02/2019
Rosie- Rosie was my makeup artist and she was fantastic. My ceremony and reception were on two different days and Rosie and I wanted two different looks. Old school glam and more of a party look for our nye reception. Rosie nailed both of them. I wouldn’t have changed anything. As an added bonus, Rosie’s an awesome person!
Chris did the makeup for my family and everyone looked amazing. Each person knew what look they were going for and Chris brought it to life. Everyone was so impressed.

I attended a high profile wedding at the Lowe’s Hotel in Chicago and really needed a wow factor look! Kate’s creative and eligant ideas really pulled through and I truly felt glamorous. Can’t wait to use her services again. Both my hair and makeup were fabulous and lastest all night without any need for touch up.Sent on 10/17/2017

Kate Johnson Artistry is great! I was looking for a place where I did not have to sign up the whole bridal party for makeup as it can get very pricey. Kate Johnson was flexible with allowing us to choose the number of girls that were partaking in services, and pricing was a lot more reasonable than other salons I had looked into. Lauren from Kate Johnson did my makeup and she is so amazing! During the trial, I showed her several inspiration pictures but not being a makeup guru, I let her take the lead. She did such a beautiful job and made me feel comfortable in my own skin while glamming it up a bit. On the wedding day, it was so nice to have someone as calm and sweet as Lauren around. She did makeup for my mom, my sister and me on my big day. We all felt so beautiful, and the makeup lasted throughout the day flawlessly, even in the summer. Lauren and I became friends through our time together, and I cherish the memories from being pampered and feeling my absolute best. Thank you Kate Johnson and Lauren!Sent on 08/20/2019
Kate Johnson Artistry's reply:Laynee! What a wonderful surprise this morning! Thank you so much i will for sure forward this to Lauren! When you get your photos pls share! I’d love to write something on ChiTheeWed for you!
I've had the opportunity to work with Kate and her team on so many occasions I've lost track, but when it was time for me to get my hair and makeup done for an important video shoot was in front of the camera for, I wouldn't have called anyone else. She has an incredible ability to make you look like you, even when you have makeup on that you might think is too heavy or out of character for you. She knows how to make you look your best, but not go crazy overboard! Shes also super fun to work with so I'd highly recommend using her for whatever your specialty makeup and hair needs may be.
