Kayte - Senior Artist & Studio Manager

What came of just a minor obsession with hair and makeup in middle school was the need to achieve greater things as a natural born artist. Kayte attended the Career Institute of Technology for Cosmetology sophomore through senior year of high school. In turn, she was able to obtain her Cosmetology license immediately after graduating and begin practicing in the salon. Her focus was mainly on hair, until the opportunity to work for Sephora arose and the conscious decision was made to work full time on makeup artistry. This has lead her to be able to study and work closely with some of cosmetics most prestigious names - Makeup Forever, Anastasia Beverly Hills, Bobbi Brown, YSL, Marc Jacobs, Smashbox, etc. Education is of highest importance for her, she truly believes that there is always something new to learn. This has taken her to a variety of specialized trainings, her favorite one with the American Cancer Society. Being a Look Good Feel Better class facilitator is her most rewarding certification.

An empowering & statement making performance is delivered with each makeup application done by Kayte. You know how you feel when you hear the song “I’m coming out” by Diana Ross? Think of an appointment with her as an embodiment of that song. Inspired in part by her many entrepreneur family members and the ever changing fashion industry, expect a whole lot of creativity and spontaneity from this girl. Her goal is to change lives, including her own, through the power of artistry.

“Every dream can become a reality, sometimes we just need a little help from our friends.. or our makeup artist.” - XO Kayte
