INTERVIEW WITH KC WITCAMP
HER JOURNEY AS A MAKEUP ARTIST
INTERVIEW WITH KC WITCAMP - THE JOURNEY OF AN ARTIST
Meet Makeup Artist & Hairstylist, KC Witkamp. Learn how she got started in her career that quickly transitioned into consistent work in the print industry as well as occasional red carpet gigs.
Find out how KC became the “Go-To” artist for many photographers, designers and magazines for their editorials, magazine covers, campaigns, look books and other exciting projects. Her work has graced covers and editorials in magazines such as Brides, California Wedding Day, Fashion, GENLUX, Martha Stewart Weddings, The Knot, Weddings Magazine and many others.
Artists often say that there is no such thing as consistent work unless you are located in New York or Los Angeles. KC proves that to be wrong with her constant flow of work, living in little, old San Diego, California. Since finishing her training at Empire Academy of Makeup and beginning her new career in the fall of 2009, KC has had constant published work and magazine covers; in the past few years, she accomplishes this on a monthly basis. And somehow she has found the time to have three beautiful children along the way. And she has continued to produce amazing work throughout her 8 year career. Tune in to hear first hand how she balances being a busy wife and mother with her many dedicated print clients and her active bridal business.
"“I absolutely enjoyed watching this broadcast. The beautiful work that
KC does is what I truly want as my focus on artistry. Her work is my
favorite of all and her quiet personality is what I love as well. I
loved getting to know her through this broadcast and seeing all her
beautiful work. She's amazing! She's a mom of 3, a wide and a
full-time makeup artist and hair stylist. I want to be just like her.
I'm only a mom of 2 little ones and it's been a struggle of guilt trying
to balance the life of a makeup artist and a mom and a wife.
Seeing KC's success and achievements give me hope that it's possible to have the same dream come true if I have the right support system and commitment and dedication on my end. Thank you for giving us your time in sharing your journey with us. Thank you Donna for making this happen. KC's work is stunning! I'm in awe at how beautiful everyone looks with her magic touch. I have googley eyes just thinking about it. I hope to work hard and get to this same success.”
