About Us

Welcome to the extras from Warpaint Magazine, the original UK title for the professional and student makeup artist.

Originally launched in 2003 as a print title, in 2014 we ushered in a digital format. With new stories posting each week, we feature interviews, news stories, trend editorial, events and awards from the creative world of the professional makeup artist.  Independently run, Warpaint champions makeup pros and students alike – bringing you the work of both internationally-acclaimed artists and homegrown starters, as well as keeping our readers updated with the latest in cosmetic launches and new collections.

Here you’ll find information on our termly print title, our podcast series, Beyond The Brush, created with sister organisation Paintopia, and our makeup competitions and masterclasses, along with events that we’ll be attending or hosting.

Covering every aspect of a make-up artist’s brief, Warpaint ventures behind the scenes of blockbuster films, TV productions, editorial shoots and major events to get the artist’s own story.  Featuring body art, prosthetics, wig work and SFX as well as high fashion, catwalk, editorial and beauty, we bring to both pro artists and aspiring students the sense of community and recognition of the incredible work our leading artists achieve.  You can read our features when they post via Bloglovin’ and WordPress or subscribe below for our weekly newsletter.
