Meet Katie

Owner + Lead Artist

I know this sounds cheesy but I have been in love with beauty my whole life. Seriously! My earliest memory is when I would visit my grandma's house... I would always find myself in her bathroom trying on her lipstick, painting my nails, and spritzing on every single perfume I could find... I even sprayed myself in the eyes with her Givenchy perfume one time. I can still feel the burn but beauty is pain as they say...


The perfume incident didn't detour me because that same infatuation I had with beauty has not only carried over to my adult life, but has flourished into a passion to make women look & feel like the gorgeous creatures they are. 

I founded Kiss by Katie in 2010 and am best known for my fresh and polished aesthetic with a glamorous twist. I'm a total sucker for beautiful glowing skin, fluttery lashes, and tousled wavy hair. My work has been featured in Adorn Magazine, Brides of North Texas, Dear Gray Magazine, Style Me Pretty, Brides of Houston, Magnolia Rouge Magazine, and for all you true crime fans like myself, I've even had the pleasure of working for NBC Dateline. (Yes, I got to meet Keith Morrison. I died.) 


Plain and simple I love what I do and I love the women I do it for. When you sit in my chair, you are a queen. I analyze that beautiful face of yours and bring your vision to life by listening to your ideas and needs. I make it a point to have open communication with you so that we are always on the same page at all times. My core belief is that when a women feels confident, she is a powerful force to be reckoned with. You may even think you're Beyonce herself and do a little shimmy shake and hair flip when I'm done with ya.

When you become a Kiss by Katie client, my ultimate goal is to serve you from the moment you contact me, until you're married to your dream beau and eventually start a family whether that be human babies or fur babies... Whatever your preference, just know that I got you girl.
