I’ve known Katie since she was a teen. She and my daughter were best friends. Even then, Katie was more knowledgeable about makeup than Lexie or Lexie’s friends. Unlike my daughter, Katie always knew exactly what she wanted to do.

After college, she broke her parent’s hearts when she took off for NYC. If it was good enough for her sister, it was perfect for her. Katie found an apartment and soon found makeup jobs. She started off freelancing for Laura Mercier, then began assisting with the agencies and little by little moved out on her own.

She has now been in New York for almost seven years. Last month she bought a ticket for London/Milan/Paris and was hired to do the makeup for the following designers; in London – Ashley Williams and Cividici in Milan. The trip was a success!

Some of the photos and videos that feature her makeup can be found at:
