Welcome to The Facial Tuneup!! I am an a North Carolina State graduate with a Chemistry degree.  After I graduated I did a lot of soul searching and wanted a career in an industry that I was passionate about.  After careful consideration I enrolled in the Aveda Institute of Chapel Hill to pursue a licensure in esthetics.  Upon completion of the program I immediately started working with the cosmetics department of Nordstrom at the Streets of Southpoint.  During my time at Nordstrom I was the business manager for Clarins and Anastasia.  I also worked with Clinique, Lancome, Smashbox, Julep, and Trish McEvoy, where I gained a great deal of knowledge about both the skincare and makeup techniques from nationally renowned trainers. 

Many of my clients consider me the "brow arching" expert and I believe the perfect brow both structures and lifts the face. Along with shaping, tinting, and educating my clients on proper filling in techniques, I can help achieve the perfect brow for any client!

Most recently, I became trained and certified by Elleebana in lash lifting and henna brow tinting. The industry leader in all things lashes and brows.

Katie is amazing! My brows are pretty sparse towards the ends, and I've had a really hard time getting a good arch myself or when I've gone for waxing at the salon. Katie is a game changer - she is so talented and such a good listener! She mapped out the shape she was envisioning before she started shaping my brows, so I knew we were on the same page. My brows look amazing, even before I use pencil on them. It's like my whole face is lifted and framed - which is what everyone says brows are supposed to do, right? I'd just never experienced it myself until now. Go see her. She does not disappoint.

Really excellent brow and lash tinting! I have had this done for years in various cities including several places in Chapel Hill and Katie is the BEST in Chapel Hill, hands down. Painless, perfect color, terrific application, no raccoon eyes! So glad I found you, Katie

She is amazing, I never trust anyone to come near my face with anything I saw her work and gave it a chance and she exceeded my expectations. She is a perfectionist and it shows in her work. I highly recommend her to anyone!
