An award winning makeup artist Amanda Bell, who counts Sienna Miller and Sir Ian McKellen as former clients, has returned to her native North East and set up her own business after a glittering career in London.
Born in Seaham, Amanda joined Lancôme in 1999 after studying Beauty Therapy and Theatrical Specialist Makeup at South Tyneside College where she won several student awards. She worked as a Makeup Artist in the fast paced and cutting edge environment of Harvey Nichols Knightsbridge and then as a Senior Makeup Artist in Selfridges Oxford Street before being awarded Lancôme’s Makeup Artist of the year in 2003.
More recently, Amanda was the official head Makeup Artist for the BAFTAs several years running, which involved preparing numerous celebrities for the red carpet, including: Sienna Miller, Jessica Biel, Goldie Hawn, Juliette Binoche, Emma Watson, Pierce Brosnan, Jude Law, Sir Ian McKellen, Dame Helen Mirren and Gillian Anderson.
Speaking about her new business, Amanda said: “I love the work I do and really wanted to give the people of the North East a service that is as much for them as for A list movie stars.”
Amanda contacted Pulse Creative Marketing to develop a website for her business. She said: “Working with Pulse was great – we formulated ideas on how best to showcase my work to potential customers via the web.”
Paul Finch, Manager at Pulse Creative Marketing said: “Working with Amanda on this project was a fantastic opportunity in order to build a website that is both visually stunning and shows the very high quality of Amanda’s work. We developed some innovative solutions to display Amanda’s videos and images effectively. We all love the finished article, and I’m really pleased it’s getting fantastic comments from visitors to the site.”
