I had the best experience working with Katrina! Katrina did my makeup for a photo shoot I had that day and it was the best makeup I have ever had! She made my skin look flawless (even with a large blemish I had on my face!) and she matched all the colors she used so well to my skin tone. She even provided me tips as she was working on me on keeping my skin healthy, which I found so insightful! Her studio on Newbury Street is absolutely beautiful and she made me feel so at ease. I would 100% recommend using Katrina Hess for all your makeup needs! She truly made me feel like my best self!

We went to Katrina Hess for my mom's birthday and it was a wonderful experience! Katrina was so kind and generous, it was very comfortable to just be in her artistic space. It was the first time my mom had her makeup done professionally, and she loved how it turned out! Katrina is a true professional and I recommend her services to anyone wanting to look and feel their best!

I went to Katrina for brow shaping, and she’s a true artist who knows her craft. It’s always a risk letting someone change your look but I couldn’t recommend her enough. Her skill and knowledge are so impressive, and she has a beautiful, classic Newbury St space where you feel very well cared for. I will be returning!

I got a private makeup lesson today from Katrina and she was phenomenal. I'm a YouTuber and I've always struggled with putting on my game face before recording and I procrastinate and don't record as often as I should because of that. Now that I know what techniques to use to enhance my natural features, the right tints/shades of colors for my face, and spotting the difference between low quality vs high quality products, with some more practice I will feel much more confident about my appearance and looking professional on camera, thanks to Katrina. :)

Katrina did my make up and my sisters' make up for my wedding. She did a fantastic job. She has great mastery of color and creating a beautiful look for each individual. She also does a great job shaping and tinting eyebrows. My photos for the wedding looked amazing because of her.

I am so privileged to know Katrina and grateful for the mastery she offers her clients in everything she touches: skin care recommendations, perfect makeup options either for day or night. And especially her precision to details and deep knowledge of brow shaping! My brows are very sparse and thin. Upon her suggestion, Katrina tinted them and shaped! They looked so much fuller and perfectly defined!If you need a great level of mastery, an ambiance and luxurious experience, coupled with high expertise and professionalism, I cannot recommend Katrina well enough!!!

Katrina Hess is truly the BEST for BROW SHAPING AND TINTING. My brows are shaped perfectly and the tint is a spot on naturel tone. I always go to Katrina for my make up lessons. She is polite, professional and sanitary. No more big Salons for me, I adore this bright and private studio. She has the value of experience. She knows all the newest techniques and reminds of the classic ones that always work. I love Katrina!

Katrina is a true artist. She has been shaping my brows for over a decade, and I still get complements on them on a regular basis! She also has done my makeup for photo shoots and important events, and I have been thrilled with the results! Katrina is such a class act-- professional, kind, thoughtful, and skilled! Thank you Katrina~

Katrina is wonderful. I was feeling very stuck and uninspired with my makeup routine and products and chose a 1-on-1 makeup tutorial. Katrina showed me how to apply my makeup in a very practical and easy way and introduced me to some terrific new products and color options. Katrina also advised on what was useful in my current makeup bag and what was not working for me. Definitely time well spent and fun.
