Colorful, Quirky & Cool: Kate Hannah

Kate Hannah swirls colors, patterns and textures in a phenomenally fabulous fashion (as evidence by her Instagram) and shares her insight with the world via her site, An Artful Life.

We just had to chat her up and see if she'd be willing to share any beauty secrets with us.

How has studying fashion design molded or influenced your perspective of what "beauty" is?


It has definitely influenced my perspective of beauty by expanding it. The crazier and more experimental that I get with my fashion design, the broader my perception of 'beauty' becomes! 

You are pretty fearless when it comes to playing with hair hues. Do you have any color preservation tips?


My number one tip is to wash your hair in cool water, or cold if you can stand it! Doing that prevents as much of the colour as possible from coming out when washing, which is also good if you have multiple colours at once like I do as it minimizes different colours bleeding into each other and mixing.

What is your favorite beauty brand?


I love Sugarpill! They have such colourful, pigmented products, I particularly love their eyeshadows!

Which makeup "looks" do you consider your go-tos?


A vibrant eye is definitely a go to of mine - I love wearing a few different bright eyeshadow colours at once for a fun rainbow look!

Describe your style in five words or less.


Eclectic, colourful, youthful and eccentric!

Anything else you'd like to add?


I do have some exciting news - in a few weeks time I will be graduating from my Curtin University fashion design degree! Mine and my peers graduate show, 'Bespoke', will be held here in Perth, Western Australia on the 4th of December. Tickets have just become available for purchase online, so grab one if you want to come along and see my work on the runway!
