Self portrait by Lou Read
Hi welcome to Lou Read makeup & art. I have worked as a makeup artist based in central London for over 15 years in fashion, beauty, advertising, the music industry, TV, theatre, bridal, events and tuition. I am also an artist and maker and enjoy working on personal projects at home including painting, drawing, collage, graphic design, up cycling vintage clothes and furniture and making fashion and home accessories. I am particularly interested in making things from found and vintage objects and materials. I created this site to show some of my work and talk about the magic of makeup, art & creativity!
Featured are some past and recent projects.
