Val Garland

Make-up Artist

Val Garland is a London-based make-up artist. After growing up in Bristol, Garland later moved to Sydney, Australia, where she trained as a hair colourist. Her interest in colour led her from hair to make-up, soon becoming a leading practitioner in Australia.

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

In 2004, Garland received the Pantene Pro-V Make-up Artist of the Year Award, and in 2017, she was named as the first L'Oréal Paris Global Make-up Director. 2018 saw Garland publish the book Validated, an anthology illustrating her career through a series of her most seminal images.

In 2019, Garland became a judge on the BBC TV series Glow Up, a competition for make-up artists.
