Kate Morris is a Hair and Make-up Artist based in Hertford/Hertfordshire. Kate and her team also cover all surrounding areas such as Bedfordshire, Essex, Kent, Surrey, and all of London.
I found my love for makeup artistry whilst a professional dancer on London’s West End stages. I was always playing with different products and styles and I then trained as a hairdresser in 2008 at the Saks Academy in London’s Covent Garden, and then pursued my makeup training at The London Makeup School.
My main focus is to make sure you fall in love with every aspect of your hair and makeup using complimentary colours to ensure I enhance your best features and styling your hair to your own unique style.
Get to Know Kate
How long have you been doing hair and makeup?
My 9 years of hair and makeup experience has enabled me to work in the following sectors:- Magazines, Corporate photo shoots, beauty events and special occasions but my love and passion is really in the Wedding/Bridal sector. This is where I feel my happiest.
What are your career highlights?
This would have to be working on the Royal Wedding. I was lucky enough to do one of Meghan Markle’s best friends’ makeup at Coworth Park. I feel lucky to call this my job really as being a part of someone’s special day is always a highlight for me.
Why do you love working on weddings?
I am passionate about making all my brides feel and look flawlessly beautiful. Everyone’s beauty is unique to them. I love creating beautifully styled hair and makeup which naturally compliments each bride. I do pride myself on my ability to calm a stressful atmosphere. I feel I have a warm nature and I love the whole experience from trial to the day of the wedding.
What are your must have products in your kit?
It would have to be my Bobbi Brown pro pallets in concealer, foundation and a range of lipsticks. Laura Mercier tinted foundation – I love this. Purely because it is a lighter consistency but with a good amount of pigment and coverage. I also absolutely adore the iconic prep and prime fixing spray, cream blushers and Becca under eye powder. Individual lashes are the best for weddings or occasions. They are so subtle and add some great volume and darkness to the lash. I do not know what I would do without my brushes – I have been adding to them for years.
Fancy name dropping some publications you have worked on?
I am lucky enough to have been involved in the covers for “That’s Life” and “Take a Break” magazines, and also doing a Tesco’s Christmas shoot in 2018.
