Leading award season make-up artists to follow for year-round inspiration

Great make-up is not just for award season.


And breathe. Award season, the Super Bowl, the 2020 general election – it’s all over.

We’re at the height of fashion month so you don’t have to wait too long to catch a celebrity look glamorous – we will be continuing to cover every great look and gorgeous eyeliner to hit a red carpet or runway. In the meantime, if you’re mourning the vacuous thrill of seeing a celebrity looking their best, meet their leading make-up artists. They’re here all year round creating incredible, trend-setting beauty looks that make you think, “huh, maybe I could swap my everyday brown eyeshadow for a little graphic pink eyeliner detail.”

Take Jo Baker, for example. If you’re interested in the make-up artists who create incredible award seasons beauty, chances are you already know Jo Baker. Her work with Lucy Boynton has singlehandedly raised our red carpet beauty expectations – we don’t want a classic red lip anymore! We want eyes embellished with the sequins of your dress! Jo Baker’s Instagram is filled with her inspirations of everything from fish to bugs to high vis vests and every look she creates makes you want to revisit your beauty look, whether it’s sunshine yellow eyeshadow, graphic eyeliner or spikey, clumpy mascara.

Scroll on down for the leading celebrity make-up artists whose pages we’ve been refreshing all 2020…
