Make up artist Lan Nguyen- Grealis is well known for her stunning and innovative make up styles for the likes of Paloma Faith, Amber Le Bon and Bianca Jagger.

Now combining makeup and art, Art & Makeup sees Lan Nguyen-Grealis taking inspiration from famous artists such as Rembrandt, Damien Hirst and Henry Moore to create over 100 new makeup styles.

All of the styles that are featured in the book reflect many different art movements such as Pop Art, Cubism and Modernism. However Lan also explores the world of film by recreating looks from cult classics such as Dallas and Edward Scissor Hands.


Filled with an explosion of colour and texture, Art & Makeup is a bold examination of the artistic skill of one of the most exciting makeup artists working in the industry today.

She is currently the youngest person to have won the Golden Mask Winner for Makeup Art (2013) and was named overall winner at the National Professional Makeup Awards in 2011.

In order to complement the showcase imagery in the main part of the book, the second part focuses on step-by-step deconstructions of the techniques used to create some of these looks. Also included in the book is an insiders guide to the industry, featuring tips and quotes from professionals ranging from professional makeup artists, photographers, fashion designers and celebrity stylists.

Art & Makeup by Lan Nguyen-Grealis will be published by Laurence King Publishers on the 17th September.
