About Kate

About Kate Glanfield makeup artistHaving trained and qualified at the prestigious London School of Make-Up in 2016, I launched my career as a professional freelance makeup artist in addition to joining the world’s fastest-growing luxury beauty brand Charlotte Tilbury. Since then I can hand on heart say that I live, breathe (and sleep, literally!) makeup as an art. There’s nothing more rewarding than someone looking in the mirror at the end of their glam and being completely in love with how they look.


Although being fairly new to the industry, my five-star reviews and work on weddings lead me to be shortlisted for the Wedding Beauty Award at the Kent Wedding Awards (Nov 2017) and I’ve worked on commercial photo shoots in addition to attending masterclasses and training with some of the UK’s most established artists. In Dec 2018 I learned from the hugely talented, world-acclaimed Ariel Tejada (makeup artist to Kylie Jenner, who specialises in makeup for high-profile appearances and red carpet glam) and I’m subsequently both Ariel Tejada and Charlotte Tilbury certified. In 2019 I was hugely privileged to make my glam debut on the red carpet at the National TV Awards.


I’m inspired by so many artists across the globe but my signature style is soft glam – beautiful, flawless and wearable makeup that is photography perfect but looks just as stunning in the flesh. I am the biggest perfectionist and appreciate that makeup is part of a client’s overall styling, so I love to create looks with an outfit or personal features in mind.



As any makeup artist will tell you no kit is ever complete, but among my kit you’ll find high-end brands like NARSBecca and Anastasia Beverly Hills,  as well as newer brands like Tatti Lashes, and of course a rather disproportionate amount of Charlotte Tilbury.
