Vanessa Elles is based in Berkshire and has been working as a freelance hair and makeup artist since 2013.

After qualifying, she went on to pursue her love for makeup as a career, landing her first job assisting makeup agency owner Michelle Court, working on set of her very first music video, which later lead onto representation with the agency Court-on-Camera.

Vanessa has since gone on to assist many more professional makeup artists whilst building her own reputation and experience in the makeup world; including Selen Hurer, head of makeup at ITN Productions, Riona O'Sullivan, a regular artist on the Fashion Week scene and Polly Osmond, one of the fashion world's most sought after makeup artists. With a passion for music videos, Vanessa has worked with international award winning DJ Gareth Emery and solo artist (recently featured on UK Love Island) Emilia Tarrant. It's been an incredible journey so far, the most rewarding was being one of the artists backstage at The Brit Awards 2019.


Whether it be for a commercial shoot, fashion, editorial, music video or live events, her aim is to create inspiring, timeless makeup, with a professional and flawless finish.
