Kate O'Shea

I began my career studying theatre and television where I developed skills in stage, film and TV, both in front and behind the camera. My passion for the industry led me to train as a makeup artist.

I trained at the Academy of Makeup Melbourne Australia, with award winning makeup artist Louise Constad and at Neill Gorton Studios learning the art of prosthetics, sfx and character makeup.

I have worked with brands such as John Lewis, NIKE, Yamaha, Missoma, Under Armour and JD. In 2019 I was a part of a project that won Gold at Cannes Lions for a campaign on Domestic Violence ‘The Not-so- Beautiful Game’. I have worked with various sports personalities, artist and actors; Anthony Joshua, Chelsea football team, Sebastian Chabal, Alexis Sanchez , American singer Ally Brooke, The Pearl Hearts, Biffy Clyro and actress Laura Main. My work has been featured in Vulkan magazine, Solstice magazine and In London magazine.

What I love about makeup is the variety and expressiveness of it as a medium. I enjoy working with different people in new environments. I care for my clients and I take care of the job at hand.

I am efficient, enthusiastic and pro active in my work and always looking to collaborate with creatives to broaden my skills and experiences in the makeup industry.

I look forward to working with you.
