About Katie

Katie McGowan is a professional makeup artist in the Boston area.

Katie is trained under the internationally renowned makeup artist, David Nicholas (DNI International) where she learned all aspects of artistry.

Katie has always had a love of makeup and a natural ability to create different looks. Through her training with David Nicholas, Katie built off of her natural ability and learned all the intricacies of makeup artistry.  Katie believes makeup is not about covering up but rather bringing out one’s natural beauty, whether enhancing a beautiful eye color or highlighting a perfectly structured cheekbone. She also loves creating a dramatic look. No matter what your need, Katie specializes in a beautiful, custom look for each client.

Says one of Katie’s brides, “I felt like she took the time to find out what I wanted. She made a lot of great suggestions and showed me colors that would work best on me based on my best features, skin tone and type.” A wedding planner says, “Katie is fun, nice to work with, and her skills as a makeup artist are amazing.”

I feel blessed to be able to do something I love and enjoy. There is nothing like observing the emotion of parents seeing their daughter for the first time on her wedding day. It is a privilege and an honor to be a part of such an important event.”

Katie resides north of Boston with her husband and three children.

Katie specializes in bridal, professional headshots and more.
