Hello. Nice to meet you!
I'm Kate, a Twin Cities based esthetician and makeup artist. I graduated from The Aveda Institute in 2009 with a degree in Esthiology. Aveda instilled in me the importance of caring for your skin, body and mind as a whole. The knowledge that I gained there truly changed my life, and set me on a path to a career that truly fulfills me. I feel honored now to be able to use my passion to care for others and assist them in there journey of becoming healthier, happier, and more balanced.
Since graduating, I have immersed myself in natural and organic skincare while working in high end spas where I have been honing my skills. In that time I have been fortunate to learn from masters in my field, like Boldijarre Koronczay, the president of Eminence Organics. In 2011 I also began working as a freelance makeup artist, specializing in bridal makeup. At the end of the day, putting a genuine smile on someone's face, because they feel like their most beautiful self, is pure joy for me.
From facials, to brows, to makeup, everything I do is thoughtfully designed to bring out your natural radiance. Hence the name, Lustre Artistry.
Named as one of the four estheticians to trust your skin to in the Twin Cities - Mpls St. Paul Magazine "Best Of" issue, January 2013.
