Starting her career in Film and Tv in the UK, Katie Angus moved to Sydney where she is now based. katie now works within the editorial, fashion and advertising scenes and is represented by DLM 

How did you get your start in the industry?
I got my start in the Makeup industry through interning roles in the UK on TV and Film productions.

Do you have a signature look or style that you are known for?
I'd like to think that my style is pretty versatile although beautiful skin is definitely always a feature!

What was one of your biggest career challenges and how did you overcome it?
My biggest career challenge was coming to Australia and into an industry where I had no friends or contacts. I overcame it by assisting and learning and not giving up! I think that's the best advice I could give any Makeup Artist who is starting out.

Must have tool or products  for your kit?
My must haves are my Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundations, Tom Ford contour and illuminate, Laura Mercier concealers and an eyebrow brush!

Who are the role models who have inspired you?
I have definitely been most inspired from the Makeup Artists I have assisted and who have taught me along the way.

How much creative input do you have when working with a celebrity?
It completely depends on the celebrity and event. Isabelle is the perfect client as she is keen to contribute to the ideas process but also open to listening and trusting our experience. The overall look today was definitely her vision but this isn't always the case.

What's the next big trend you're starting to see sneak in?
The dark lip is definitely becoming a big one at the moment.

What do you enjoy to do when the brushes are down?
When the brushes are down you'll find me on the dancefloor! :)
