Kate Pymm Hair & Make Up Description

Hi, I'm Kate Pymm, professional make-up artist and hair stylist from the North East of England, I have over 9 years experience within the industry and hold qualifications in Cosmetic Make-up, Beauty and Theatrical and Media Make-up as well as being a SAKS Academy trained hair stylist. Although I am based in the North I do travel all over the U.K. From bridal preps to shoots I am happy to travel to your preferred venue be it at home or on location.

I use all professional cosmetics by Charlotte Tilbury (I freelance for this brand too!), MAC, Bobbi Brown, Nars, Illamasqua, Dior and many more, I use essential primers that will ensure longevity of your make-up making it last throughout your day and evening.

I work with a number of renowned photographers in the North East. My work is very varied from weddings to makeover shoots, model portfolios to prom and party/event make-up and fashion/editorial and TV.

My own brand Kate Pymm Make-Up is now expanding so if I personally am unable to style you, one of my artistsand hair stylists will. Any associates I have within my business, work under my ethos and offer the same professional finish and service that I do. All bookings run through myself.

Please feel free to contact me for prices and availability. In some cases, travel will be charged. A booking form will need to be completed and posted back to me along with the deposit, this will then secure your date and my services. I like to carry out trials 8 - 12 weeks before your big day so please bare this in mind when making your booking. Where possible, I will also come to you for your trial.

If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact me where I will be happy to help and try my very best to meet your needs.

Thank you,


Kate Pymm Hair & Make Up Reviews


Hi Kate, Just a quick note to thank you so much for your hard work last Saturday. You delivered exactly what I wanted and I got so many amazing complements- thank you! Please let me know which products you used so I can 'try' and re-create the look myself! If not I will definitely book you in for more special occasions in the future! Lots of love Rashmi x

Hi Kate, I just wanted to say a huge thank you for doing my wedding make up and hair! You totally transformed me and I can't believe how special you made me feel on my big day. You were so lovely and professional and you started the day off perfectly. I am extremely grateful that I found you and that you were part of such an occasion. Everyone commented on my hair and make up which shows you did a... fantastic job! If anyone is looking for a friendly and talented make up artist for their big day then I would highly recommend Kate. Thanks so much for all you did! Emma x

I can't thank you enough Kate. I wanted a bold but neutral look that lasted all day and that is exactly what you gave me. From the moment I contacted you, you responded with nothing but promptness and professionalism - a delight when trying to organise a wedding!
The Bridesmaids looked stunning - everyone commented on all of our make-up, and at the end of the day I didn't want to take it off as it still looked as fresh as when you first applied it.
Most of all, thank you for helping to create an 'air of calm' whilst we were all getting ready. I can remember every moment and these are special memories that Ishall keep with me forever. Thank you.

I was really impressed with the service all round. Unlike many make-up artists that I phoned, Kate responded to me really quickly, which was much appreciated. The initial consultation was very thorough and I really appreciated that you were prepared to spend as long as it took to achieve the look I was after.
In terms of wedding make up on the day, I couldn't have asked for anything better. The make up looked natural yet it lasted until the early hours of the morning. I was so pleased with the overall look and received so many positive comments about it. You achieved the perfect mix of natural, light looking make-up, but it still looked obvious I was wearing some, which was great for the photographs.
I would recommend your service to anyone for any special occasion, wedding or even if you just want a make-up lesson to learn where you've been going wrong all these years! As a bride I had so much to organise before the wedding. It was a relief to find a make-up artist who was very good at what she did, is a lovely person and whom I trusted.
Worth every penny and so much more! Thanks so much Kate.

Kate did a fantastic job on everyone's make-up and she was a welcome oasis of calm in the chaos of everyone getting ready. Kate was very good at knowing which colours suited certain colourings, eye colour etc., and knew what would look good in the Wedding Photographs. It was a rest to just sit back and let her work her magic!

Sam Gray

I have to say that from the first time I met Kate, I had complete and utter confidence that we would all look stunning on the big day. We all felt so comfortable and at ease with the process.
I was particularly concerned on the day of the Wedding that the bad weather/snow would hinder Kate getting to the venue, but I needn't have worried - as promised, she arrived bang on time and through out that morning Kate was a godsend, even reminding everyone that it was my day and shouldn't I have a glass of bubbly in my hand?, which was soon resolved!
I even had an early evening nap after the Wedding. I removed the false lashes and my contact lenses and propped myself upon a pillow to stop my hair getting ruffled. After an hour and a half I woke up, had a quick shower, put my lenses back in and blotted a little shine on my face, applied a little liner where I had removed my lashes and a slick of lipstick. People couldn't believe that I had been to sleep and neither my hair nor make-up had budged or smudged!
I was pleased that Kate was able to come to both venues, so that I had continuity over both days. I will certainly be recommending Kate's services to all my friends and colleagues and I believe that one of my friends is already considering a make-up lesson for her Wedding next year in Italy.
Kate, I can't thank you enough for your help throughout the planning and the Wedding itself? even with the booking being at quite short notice you bent over backwards at every opportunity to help me take the stress away.

As soon as I read Kate's profile, I felt that she would not only be brilliantly professional but also friendly and easy to get on with. I was right! When I asked her to help me transform into Angelina (Jolie) for the day, she didn't laugh! She made me feel really happy and confident. We went for a neutral look but with a strong eye. I have very difficult skin at the best of times and it is particularly bad at the moment. The make-up trial enabled us to work out which products really suited my skin. Kate also advised me on preparing my skin correctly, so that on the day, I felt flawless! Kate's friendly professionalism really benefited us on the morning of the wedding. She was a calm, happy presence and she made sure that we were ready in plenty of time, despite all the distractions. Both Mum and I felt really self-assured when she had finished. Throughout the day our make-up continued to compliment our skin and stayed fresh. Our hair was fantastic as well; the styles were just perfect and the accessories Kate ordered for me are so very pretty and unusual. We were able to face the cameras with a joyful smile. My husband said he was so happy that I still looked like me ? just enhanced and polished! I cannot thank Kate enough for all her thoughtfulness, advice, talent and good humour. She is just brilliant and I would recommend her to anyone.

Amy Redfearn - April 2010

Just wanting to thank you for all the work you did applying my make-up on my Wedding Day. It was fantastic and lasted all day. My Bridesmaid and my Mum loved their make-up too. I couldn't have asked for anything different as it was perfect. I was so relaxed on the Wedding Day and ready in plenty of time. I am also a MAC user now but still can't get it too look how it did when Kate did it!! Thank You.

Lindsay Skinner - June 2010

On my Wedding Day, Kate was fantastic, my Mam's, 2 Bridesmaid's and my own make-up was applied with great care. My Chief Bridesmaid has a scar on her face and asked Kate if she could hide it, when her make-up was finished my Bridesmaid was amazed that you couldn't see it at all! All of our make-up was applied brilliantly, Kate asked each person what colours they prefer, how much make-up they usually wear and if there were any skin problems. Everybody was really happy with the end results and our make-up was still perfect at 1am the next morning! I will definitely be advising Kate to all my family, friends and colleagues when they need their make-up done. Kate is lovely, very friendly and I will definitely contact her again when I need my make-up done.
