Our Event Mission Statement

Make Up Artist London’s Founder and Director, Camilla Collins, was trained at renowned Makeup School, Greasepaint, in Hair and Makeup for TV, Film and Theatre. This included all aspects of hair and makeup styling as well as wigs, prosthetics and SFX makeup.

After qualifying, her journey began in the filming industry where she spent several years working on a variety of filming projects from short films and features to music videos and commercials.

It wasn’t until 2012 that she assisted on her first Wedding, and after experiencing the buzz and excitement of the wedding morning and the sheer joy and happiness that the bride and her bridal party expressed on completion of their hair and makeup design, she was hooked!

She spent the next few years building up her bridal business, Camilla J Collins Hair and Makeup Artist, looking after around 50 brides and their bridal parties each year.  Still wanting to exercise her creativity to it’s full potential, she worked on photo shoots and editorials and when Halloween came around, her special effects kit was in full use, transforming the staff of bars and clubs as well as corporate clients and private individuals.

As time went on, Camilla began branching out into the Events Industry, trying to find a way for more and more companies to use the feature of makeup prior to or during events and in 2015, Makeup Artist London was born!

Our mission statement is:

“We want to combine the skills and techniques of makeup artistry normally reserved for TV, Film and Theatre with the magic and excitement of live events – making it accessible for everyone!”

We know that the personality of event professionals is of the utmost importance and plays a huge part in the experience of the hosts and guests of the event. With this in mind, Camilla set out to form an exceptional team of highly skilled, dynamic and professional artists to really bring their A-game to any event and create an impact.

All of the team are fully trained in all aspects of TV, Film and Theatre Hair and Makeup, apart from our 2 specialist Henna Artists. When selecting team members, being a great makeup artist just isn’t enough, we require out going and dynamic personalities to match as well professionalism and reliability.

The artists on the Make Up Artist London team are constantly working throughout the Film and Fashion Industries as well as in the corporate sector, keeping their skills and creativity up to date and ensuring they don’t lose their artistic flair.

WE LOVE the variety of work, WE LOVE that no two days are the same and WE LOVE engaging with new people and surroundings to enhance our skills and allow us to create new and better things!

If you think the Make Up Artist London team could you help you with any event or project you are planning, then we would just love to hear from you!
