Meet Katrina Hess of Katrina Hess Makeup & Brow Studio in Back bay

Today we’d like to introduce you to Katrina Hess.

Katrina, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I started with Revlon Cosmetics as a National Makeup Artist. After settling down in New England, I worked for Federated Department Stores as a Cosmetic/Fragrance Department Manager. After, I desired a need to do makeup again. I opened Katrina Hess Makeup in 2003, I’ve been located on Newbury Street since.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
It’s been a smooth ride…all the way!!! The only problem is that I need more of me!

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Katrina Hess Makeup & Brow Studio story. Tell us more about the business.
My specialty is makeup application, brow shaping, lashes, and skincare. I’m known for my bridal makeup. I’m most proud of the 5 Best of Boston awards!

Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
My best luck was meeting my husband. He supports me and believes in me. Without him, I wouldn’t be where I’m at today.
