Ali Gunn Makeup Artist

About

My makeup career started in 1994 when I attended The London college of fashion studying hair & makeup for 2 years. I have been lucky enough to work in makeup ever since. I love the magic of makeup, how it transforms your look and how it makes you feel.

I worked for M.A.C for 8 years in their Leeds, London & Nottingham stores gaining invaluable experience with regular product updates and learning new techniques from amazing artists including Tom Pecheux and Terry Barber.
Having the opportunity to work on all races and ages every day in store was the best experience. I still mainly use M.A.C products  along with other top brands, Estee Lauder, Bobbi Brown and Benefit.

Further experience includes 4 seasons at London Fashion week with world leading makeup artist Charlotte Tillbury .
Being the official hair & makeup artist for the 2012 Olympic team and having worked on famous faces including Becky Adlington, Billy Piper, Poppy Delevingne and Ulrika Johnson. There have also been numerous fashion shoots, advertising campaigns and music videos.

My clients include Speedo, New Balance, Easy Jet and Boots and recently for QVS global for their makeup tutorials.

Bridal makeup is one of my greatest passions, I work with about 60 brides and their parties each year. It is wonderful to be a part of their special day. I also love making ladies or teenagers up for special occasions and enjoy teaching one to one or group makeup lessons sharing everything I’ve learnt in my 20 years so far in makeup.

Whatever the brief I will always deliver a flawless and professional service working with you to create your desired look.
