    Absolutely Perfect!

    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!

    Amazingly Talented Hair and Make-up Artist

    Kate did an amazing job on my hair and make-up for my wedding day. I have a lot of hair, and I was little worried that my hair would be looking pretty sad by the end of the night. However, I didn't need to worry in Kate's capable hands. She crafted a stunning undo that looked great both with and without my veil, and that stayed put throughout the night. Kate also is an amazingly talented make-up artist who really listened to me when I described how I wanted to look. I'd suggest that clients also book a trial appointment with Kate in advance. I loved my look after my trial, and it was great to make sure that what I thought I wanted was actually what I wanted prior to my big day. I would highly recommend Kate to anyone who wants to look extra special.

    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.
