Bridal / Fashion / Beauty / Editorial / Celebrity Makeup Artist


Hey, I’m Gemma Rimmington.  I am a professional Makeup Artist and an unapologetic beauty junkie.

I have won several awards over the years for my makeup work, customer service and business ethics including Specialist Bridal Makeup Artist 2021 at the Global Wedding Awards. My work has been published in several magazines publications including Vogue Italia and I am Creative Beauty Director for luxury print British Muse magazine.  

Working with a makeup artist for a special occasion or event requires a level of trust and connection to get the best possible results. My experience and commitment to quality has provided me with a large loyal client base and respect from industry professionals, so you can rest assured you are in safe hands.  I am passionate about creating glamorous yet wearable makeup to enhance your natural beauty.

I work on an appointment-only basis so if red carpet beauty is your thing, please get in touch for a chat or to book an appointment.  I am excited to discuss your makeup requirements with you.

“I cannot speak highly enough of Gemma, what an absolutely amazing person she is! Right from the beginning, at my bridal makeup trial, she made me feel comfortable and I could tell straight away that I wouldn’t want anybody else to do my makeup on such a special day! On the day, Gemma did different makeup styles for everyone, listening to what everybody wanted and creating looks that we were all over the moon with (even those who don’t usually feel comfortable wearing makeup). Gemma is more than a makeup artist, she is a beautiful person and I am so so glad she was with us on the morning of my wedding! Gemma, I cannot thank you enough!”

“I had a 1-1 make up lesson last week with Gemma and it was brilliant. I was a bit unsure what to expect before I arrived. But Gemma was great made me feel really comfortable she showed me how to create a natural day look and then an evening look. She also gave chance to practice everything which was great. She gave me advice on the best colours for me and on all products skin care and make up. I loved how honest Gemma was about products that you could save a bit of money on and get away with spending a bit less. And also about which products and worth spending a bit extra on. Can’t wait to receive my new products and get practicing. Thanks Gemma”

“Gemma is incredibly talented, friendly and adaptable makeup artist!  She is entirely professional from booking, discussing the look you want to achieve through to the application.  I not only trust Gemma with my makeup for special occasions but also with semi-permanent makeup.  Now that’s trust! (Her Microblading skills are phenomenal!).  Recently Gemma has had to put down the brushes and adapt to these challenging times – but this hasn’t stopped her working.  Her online presence has rocketed (my bank balance has plummeted by buying all the products she tests and recommends) and her editorial posts are simply inspiring.  I booked in a makeup session for my niece for her school prom but sadly it got cancelled due to Covid-19 so I rebooked it for her 16 birthday earlier this month.  Rather than let her client down Gemma suggested an online bespoke consultation where she talked me through the makeup application and gave us both a load of beauty tips along the way!  Now I’m no MUA but together we did a fantastic job and her client left feeling a million dollars! A job well done.”
