About me
My name is Katie Johnson, and I am a Freelance Hair and Makeup Artist. I have been working Freelance for over a year, having graduated from a 3 Year Degree studying Hair and Makeup for Film and Theatre at Northbrook College, Sussex and have gained competent skills in a number of areas, including cutting, barbering, makeup for everyday and theatrical wear, special effects, wig knotting, postiche making as well as hairstyling for all historic periods.

I have already had some work experience within theatre (Her Majesty’s Theatre and Chichester Festival Theatre) and experience in making prosthetics and ‘on set’ hair and makeup for a number of short films, events and music videos.

I have an optimistic, positive attitude and am used to working as part of a busy supportive team, but am happy to take charge if necessary, while still taking in the views and opinions of others. I work well under pressure, to restrictive deadlines and have vast experience working with the general public. I am punctual, flexible, conscientious, organized and reliable, settling in quickly to a task to produce the best possible results. I am a creative perfectionist with a vivid imagination, this I portray as much as each project will allow through styling of makeup, hair and accessories. I am very open to new concepts and always keen to learn new techniques and methods that will allow me to put my ideas into practice.

Key Skills:
• A keen interest and knowledge in special effects makeup and prosthetics.
• Competent in a variety of period hair and makeup styles, from Grecian through to present.
• Skills in wig knotting and making postiche, having made a wig including foundation.
• Some experience in cutting and barbering.
• Experience with natural, fashion and bridal hair and makeup.
• Skills in airbrushing and bodypainting.
• Experience of theatrical makeup and hairstyling, including work experience at her Majesty’s Theatre, London
• Experience of working with Adults and Children.
• Current, Clean Driving license and Car owner – Happy to travel to location.

I have recently been expanding my portfolio with various Model shoots alongside my film work and am keen to try all genres of photoshoot - will do Trade for Photo as well as paid work depending on the shoot etc.

*Standard rates for shoots:

Makeup/ Hair Only - £45.00 a day plus travel

Hair and Makeup - £60.00 a day plus travel

Special effects/ Body paint shoot - £60.00 a day plus travel - This covers small/medium scale effects, anything larger rates will be discussed prior to shoot.

Travel expenses will be confirmed prior to shooting as I drive but can travel by train as well. Please note the above rate covers all material costs (unless anything extra is needed for specific shoots that I cannot reuse of course!) and up to and including 3 models, any additional models rates will be negotiated prior to shoot.

NB I also work on a TFP basis depending on the shoot, but ask for travel to be reimbursed *

Katie was on time, well equipped and nailed every different style with skill and finesse. Added the little touches that make all the difference, and was a joy to work with. Interacted well with my model, and will be getting many repeat bookings from me. Highly Recommended. :)

I have had two shoots with Katie one was a pin up girl shoot and the other was a vampire/zombie shoot with another model.

The make up and hair was amazing for both shoots. She is very skilled and can do a range of different styles. The demon rolls for my pin up were incredible. I loved my make up for my vampire look which was very pale with blood dripping from my mouth. Highly skillful.

Would highly recommend if your looking for a make up artist that can do a lot. She certainly has done for my complete portfolio. I am looking forward to working with her again in the near future.

Sorry for lateness of this recommendation I thought I had already done it. May have forgot to press submit.

I worked as Photographer on a recent Zombie / Vampire shot and Katie's make up skills were in full effect. Our models looked excellent and Katie kept them looking good all day. She is obviously very good at her work and also a pleasure to have on a shoot. I recommend her to anyone.

Would Like To Thank Katie Again For Doing The Fx for our Zombie / Vampire Shoot We Did Yesterday, Katie Was Very Professional In Her Approach To The Shoot, Her Communication And Punctuality Was Impeccable, Even Though She Was Travelling 90 + Miles To Do The Shoot, She Was Well On Time.

Highly Recommended.....
