August 8, 2013

On July 30th we were honoured to meet such an inspirational Makeup Artist as Kate McCarthy  International Makeup Artist for Glominerals.

We were grateful to get some time to talk with such a charismatic and multi-faceted artist with the same passion for the industry as Victoria and I have. Having done some work in LA and working with celebrities Kate discussed the ups and downs she faced when working in such a challenging environment. To hear how she got to where she is now is truly an inspiration.

We at The Beauty Team share the same excitement about glominerals as Kate having used the makeup at photoshoots, television gigs and even on bridal and corporate clients across SouthWestern Ontario.


Jenna being a Glo educator and Makeup Artist for Glominerals, the both of us owning a Beauty Team (where we preach about the brand to our team and to all of our clients), along with working in television and print, we were most excited to hear how Kate grew to love this prestige brand.  She began the workshop by telling the story of how she once visited a dermatologist who told her she needed to change her skin care routine due to some acne issues and was introduced to Glominerals. She was so obsessed with how amazing the product made her skin look that she wanted to figure out how to work for the company. She called the company multiple times and in her cute and quirky way said she actually slightly ‘bugged’ them until she got a job. She now trains women around the world on the benefits of glomineral makeup. Talk about an inspiration,  Kate is also the product developer for the brand!


We admire the way Kate presents herself and the product. With pride, flare and humour. She made the event fun and all the attendees who were staff at medical spas had nothing but amazing feedback about the training session.

Fun Facts:

A self proclaimed Cat lover,  Kate named one of Glominerals lip liners after her cat Delilah. 

One of her all time favourite brushes is the eye texture brush.

As fellow Makeup Artist’s we cannot stress how important it is to blend, blend blend! Kate agrees admitting to having over 8 eye blender brushes in her brush roll.

A great new tip; To keep eyeliner fully waterproof, set with Glo’s clear lip filler.
