Katya Gudaeva is a makeup artist from Moscow, now living in Seattle.

She started in 2010 and is self-educated. She attended a course at the Makeup Designory (MUD) school in Los Angeles to expand her skills in beauty and fashion makeup.

Always having a goal to perform with high level of professionalism, dedication and respect Katya has been working with different clients such as Subaru, Amazon, Samsung, King5, Totokaelo, Asolo, DVF Studio, Macklemore, Zola Jesus, etc.

Working on art projects and editorial photo shoots gives Katya the opportunity to be creative and explore colors, textures, styles and new techniques. Being able to see how her makeup and hair can compliment fashion styling to change a model’s appearance and create a story is a great feeling!

The main lesson she’s learned working as a makeup artist is to notbe afraid to try – going beyond what’s comfortable can expand our horizons and make us even better.
