About Maya

The makeup artist Maya LewisI’m a trained, professional makeup artist covering London, the Home Counties and the South East.

Trained at London College of Fashion, I enjoy creating beautiful wedding looks, as well as spectacular character transformations for actors and performers.

My regular clients include retail fashion outlets New Look, Selfridges and ASOS. Another is celebrity talk show host Jonathan Ross, as part of the key makeup team for his regular Halloween party.

I’ve worked at London Fashion Week under Lan Nguyen Grealis, and led the makeup and special effects team at exclusive West End club Cirque Le Soir for five years, constantly inventing new looks and visual effects for the club’s infamous stage shows. Other clients have included Google, dating app Badoo, the Royal Academy of Arts and others.

I’d love to be involved with your wedding, event, photoshoot or transformation. Please drop me a message via my contact page, or through my Instagram or Facebook profiles.
