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.
My career in the beauty and fashion industry began at a young age. I spent over a decade as a model both in my hometown of Minneapolis and in Los Angeles. From day one, I instantly fell in love with makeup. It was such a playful way to create art. Once I started doing makeup for others, I found that there is nothing I love more than making someone feel beautiful, inside and out. For me, it's incredibly empowering to put a genuine smile on someone's face.
In 2009, I graduated from The Aveda Institute of Minneapolis with a degree in Esthiology. There I found I also had a wild passion for skincare and wellness. I have since worked in high end spas where I have been honing my skills, with an emphasis on organic skincare and green beauty. I believe healthy skin is the prettiest thing you can wear, and I like to apply makeup to bring out your natural radiance. Hence the name, Lustre Artistry.
