News From Kate Griffiths, Theatrical Make-up Artist


If you’re a regular reader of my twitter account (@katesfxmakeup) you’ll know that I don’t just do film makeup – I get to work on lots of different projects with bookings that are not just to do with film, tv or theatre.  A lot of my work comes in through Advertising and PR agencies or Event Management companies.  These are often jobs that have a quick turnaround in that an enquiry will come in, a quote is sent and agreed, the job happens and that’ll be the last I see or hear about it!  Occasionally I might see something in a magazine, newspaper or online afterwards but more often or not I’m not able to post information or photos about it.  I recently created "Blofeld" for a big private corporate party but unfortunately there was a photo blackout on the event and I wasn’t able to get any Before & After photos for my own portfolio which was a real shame as it was definitely one of my top ten makeovers!

This video is of the Street Fighter V media launch event in London I worked on for M&C SAATCHI LONDON in the Vinyl Factory in Soho.

There are also some great photos on the Daily Mail Online page here
