Val Garland is a make-up artist working in London. Val grew up in Bristol, then emigrated to Sydney Australia, where she trained as a hair colourist. It was her interest in colour that led her from hair into make-up, where soon after she was a leading practitioner in Australia.

In 1994 Garland moved back to London where over the last two decades has worked on various projects ranging from highly conceptual catwalk shows for Alexander McQueen to commercial celebrity shoots with Kate Moss, as well as collaborating on publications such as Vogue, Dazed & Confused, i-D and Visionaire. Now firmly established, her innovative ideas have led her to work internationally with Nick Knight and Mario Testino, John Galliano, Chloë Sevigny and Björk.
