Makeup Artists Bio

Makeup Artist - Gemma Lucas

Gemma Lucas (Owner, Makeup Artist). Gemma’s inspiration for creating Dollface was due to her experience with working as a Professional Makeup Artist.

She set out to provide a private, professional Studio that makes the everyday lady feel and look amazing, just like a Hollywood Filmstar!

She has 8 years experience in the industry and started in photographic makeup. Working as an Advanced artist for Bobbi Brown Cosmetics. This led to working on events backstage including Britains Next Top Model, Scottish Fashion Awards and The National Wedding Show. This is where she found her passion in becoming a Professional Bridal Makeup Artist.

Gemma also worked for Chanel Cosmetics on luxury Cruise liners conducting Makeup Master classes and Makeovers for the guests onboard. Once back in the UK she then represented Jane Iredale as their regional Makeup Artist for the North West which involved her training other budding Artists.

Her style varies from simple, fresh modern bridal to dramatic and quirky editorial/Fashion makeup.

Lorna Harvey-Oates (Makeup Artist)

Lorna has been working professionally as a freelance makeup artist for 2 years. Her passion started from a young age, which began as just a hobby, and now she feels blessed to call it her career.

When completing her makeup qualifications, Lorna was exposed to some great opportunities including being head makeup artist at London and Manchester Fashion week.

She has gained much experience within 2 years whilst freelancing and created varied looks on all faces of all ages and races. She believes that this has given her the ability to be able to cater to each individual rather than a “one look suits all!”

Lorna specialises in makeup for all special occasions including weddings, proms and also works at a photography studio in Manchester providing photographic makeovers for her clients on a regular basis.

Her style consists of natural and modern, elegant makeup to flawless and detailed evening makeup/ editorial.
