Make-up Artist: Kate Reynolds
Wolverhampton, Photographer Karisma Visuals
Kate has always had an incredible passion for make-up from a young age. She left school to attend Bournville College to pursue her dream, she studied and achieved the Level 2 and Level 3 Diploma in Special Effects, Theatrical Hair & Media Make-up.
While at college, she took part in many collaborations with other creatives such as stylists/designers/photographers investing a lot of my time and effort into building her portfolio. Kate discovered she has a natural creative flair- she knows fashion is an area she could be successful in. Realising she had an eye for artistic execution and attention to detail in 2015, she competed in the finals of the World Skills UK Media Make-up competition, in which she was placed 1st within the West Midlands, whilst being the youngest competitor at 18.
Since then, Kate has worked for MAC & Giorgio Armani, whilst continuing to build up her portfolio to push herself into the fashion industry. Her aim is to work for top fashion designers (presenting at fashion week) and a leading make-up artist within the industry. She is truly inspired by unconventional beauty, using this to push creative boundaries to show that make-up is much more than an art form.
