It all began in 2001… when Kat got her first job as a workroom assistant at Orlando Theatrical Supply and a first-hand look at theater and television. Although the costuming was intriguing, it was the makeup that really sparked her interest. It was there that she met one of L.A.’s top makeup artists who had recently relocated to Central Florida and was recruiting artists for her newly formed company. Kat’s creativity and skill earned her an internship and then a permanent spot with the team.
Over the years Kat has worked with some of Central Florida’s best makeup artists and honed her skills in makeup artistry for television, production work with Disney, and events such as weddings, proms, and Quinceañeras. She also gained the unique skill of airbrush artistry. Now that Kat has started her own business, she continues developing her skills and expanding her clientele. She has also taken a more active role at Carolyn Allen’s, her family’s bridal and formalwear boutique, including organizing and styling their semi-annual fashion show and photo shoots for their advertising.
Kat views makeup artistry as more than simply applying cosmetics. For her, it’s all about creating and styling an entire look that will make her subject look better than ever. She puts a great deal of thought into melding her clients’ ideas and requests with her own so they are not only happy, they look better than they ever dreamed. From natural looks to retro movie star glamour, weddings to production work, Kat’s talent and eye for bringing out her subject’s beauty and style is second to none!
