Makeup Artist Katherine Roux discusses makeup, products she uses, her rates, lessons she learned, and more!

Interviews / MUA – It has been a long while since I got in touch with independent Connecticut makeup artist Katherine Roux to discuss some of the things she got going on, so I reached out to her and invited her to do a five-question interview with me to catch up on some things. I hope you enjoy reading the interview!

Internet Hollywood: What’s up Kat?! It feels like it’s been a long minute since we chatted and I’m sure someone as talented as you got a couple of things up her sleeve for the new year. What was the occasion like when you celebrate the coming of the new year and what are some of the goals you lined up to get you started on your quest to fulfill your dream?

_

Katherine: I had a great new year and celebrated with friends. I hope the next year is filled with lots of shoots I’ve been itching to work on new concepts!

Internet Hollywood: Your talent with makeup can’t be denied and you always tend to surprise others with your impressive abilities with makeup. What has become some of your favorite products to use and does your emotions affect the style of makeup you put on each day?

_

Katherine: I am a die-hard Anastasia Beverly Hills fan as well as everything L’Oréal especially their infallible foundation is an all-time fave! My emotions absolutely affect my makeup the better I feel the better the makeup comes out because I’m able to really focus.

_

Internet Hollywood: What kind of services do you offer, what kind of occasions do you offer your services, and do you have any rates set at this time?

_

Katherine: I offer full face for $50 and bridal is $100. I’ve done proms and homecomings and a wedding before and I absolutely love working with clients and making them feel beautiful.

_

Internet Hollywood: Do you plan on starting your own makeup line sometime in the future or does your vision brings your thoughts in another kind of reality for the future?

_

Katherine: A makeup line is one of many dreams I have for makeup but I have waysss to go before I get there!

_

Internet Hollywood: Many people that are interested in doing makeup don’t seem to progress because of their lack of knowledge in how to start off. Judging by your experience as an independent makeup artist, what has been the easiest way for most of the makeup artists you know that progressed to higher stages in their field and what are some things you strongly don’t recommend beginning makeup artists do when starting off?

_

Katherine: For anyone who wants to get into the makeup game my advice is PRACTICE! Any form of skill requires complete dedication and practice. I also would say to know your worth and put in the volunteer time to get better. I didn’t charge for makeup for over a year when I started, and I was lucky enough to have photographers that were willing to work with me and help me improve. (Shoutout to Manny, @cantera_image as one of the first photographers to believe in my makeup.)

_

Internet Hollywood: Last question, what would you say is the biggest lesson you learned last year and did you change anything about yourself to make sure you don’t make the same mistakes as last year and succeed in moving closer to your dream?

_

Katherine: The biggest lesson I learned last year was that the crazier the concept the better! The shoots that were the most unconventional came out best and made the most impact. My favorite of the year was the glitter tops I created (again shoutout to manny as well as the beautiful models I was so lucky to work with they both absolutely killed it!) I learned that once you have a good idea you should take it as far as you can then push a little more.

Internet Hollywood: Thank you for the interview, Katherine!
