About Me & Client Testimonials
I'm Ali, a Makeup Artist and Hair Stylist and I split my time between Bath and London. I'm a life long makeup addict and am really happy to be working freelance full time doing my dream job. I use 100% vegan, cruelty products - no animal testing, no animal derived ingredients - picking the best products from a from a range of luxury brands, with few high street gems thrown in, including Charlotte Tilbury, Too Faced, Anastasia Beverley Hills, Eylure lashes and more. I often use airbrush makeup for high definition, and prefer to use OCC skin bases for this as they're lightweight but provide a long lasting finish and flawless coverage on the skin.
I started Bombshell Makeup UK to provide an easy to book mobile glam on the go service - simply make your booking, then relax and let me take care of the rest. If I can't be there, I'll recommend one of my personally selected artists to glam you up. I know some fantastic artists who I trust to help you look and feel your very best.
I studied media makeup at BAMM and most of my work is based around photography and helping people look camera ready and feel their best, whether that's for their wedding day, or simply for a glam night out or special occasion such as a photoshoot, boudoir makeover or magazine feature. As soon as I finished my time at BAMM I started working for MAC Cosmetics, and their fashion forward approach to makeup definitely influenced my style as an artist and inspired me to follow trends and keep my work bang up to date. I'm thrilled to offer my expertise to all my clients and aim for us to work together to bring your ideas to life.
My clients include the Welsh National Opera, Badoo dating app and Spinefarm/Universal Records.
As well as my other work, I am also a beauty writer and have had feature articles in BBC Eating and Living Free From magazine as well as some other great online and printed publications.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions - I'm always able to accommodate my clients' individual requirements, whether that's allergies, or specific preferences when it comes to how you wear your makeup. The services I offer are inclusive and LGBT friendly (of course!), so if there is anything I can do to assist you during the booking process for your appointment please do drop me a message.

"Ali is the perfect part of any dream team or solo hair & makeup artist. I love working with her and would strongly recommend her fabulous skills to anybody. Being made beautiful by Ali feels like you're being danced on by fairies!' - Rio Wild, Founder of Miss Pinup UK
"I wanted to say how lovely it was to meet you and how amazing your work for me was....I don't think I can put into words just how much this meant to me. I felt absolutely awesome and created an impression" - Celia, following her makeover
"You made me feel like a pinup for the day!" - Kasia, after her vintage makeover
"Fantastic make up, you really captured the brief well and the essence of the characters came through strongly. Make-up is such a fine art. When blown up on the big screen, make up can really make the look of a character come alive. You brought a calm and professional air on set, and kept up a level of energy through-out the shoot, working in any space you were moved to without complaint." - Zoe Solanki, Producer of 'Through The Mirror Darkly'
