Bebe Newson Makeup Artist

About me

I am a professional Freelance Makeup Artist with strong hairstyling skills and a decade of experience in the beauty Industry. I am a naturally cheerful and creative person which is allowed me to maintain lasting working relationships and am often asked back and referred.

Notable clients include Citv, Itv, Irregular Choice, Scottish Widows, Hyundai , Will Young and Laura Jackson as well as an abundance of director’s, Bands, photographers and brides.
I continuously evolve and learn as an innovative, conscientious makeup artist and all my experience has undoubtably taught me to keep cool under pressure, run an organized yet adaptable team while working with tight deadlines and varying budgets. 

It all began when I started working for Urban Decay in 2007 and quickly realised that being a makeup artist was my calling. I joined MAC Cosmetics in 2008 and quickly attained all my certifications to become a makeup artist and assisted other artists and helped out on photoshoots whenever I could and over the years started doing more and more freelance work.
In December 2015 my journey with MAC came to and end when I decided to go Freelance full time.

Working for such a creative and trail blazing brand allowed me to keep up to date with current trends in the Fashion and beauty world. During my 7 years  I’m proud to say I was part of their prestigious Events team, which provided opportunities to work on Fashion shows, shoots and high profile events affiliated with the Brand such as BAFTA and The Laurence Olivier’s to name a few. I was also part of the management team and Training team which alongside working within a broad field of TV, Commercial, Celebrity and print has refined my skills as a diplomatic communicators helping me successfully and calmly deal with the challenges inherent in this industry.
