Cassie Lomas has been working as a makeup artist for 20 years. Based in London, Cassie is a leading industry Artist known for creating looks for Fashion, Music and Advertising. Although Cassie undertakes a wide spectrum of work she is best known for her flawless, iridescent skin and modern pretty aesthetic. Cassie has a beautifully fresh and modern approach to makeup.
Cassie can usually be found travelling worldwide with one of her celebrity clients, teaching at her Makeup Academy or adding new designs to her range of Makeup brushes.
Cassie has recently launched her bespoke Professional range of Make Up Brushes in 2016. After spending 5 years training over 500 artists, Cassie saw the brushes they use had a massive impact on the standard of make up produced. There was never quite the right brush to do what she was trying to teach, especially for beginners. This gap in the market encouraged her to start designing her own range, one that can be used with ease by anyone, not just the professionals. Cassie’s brushes perfectly achieve a professional finish without the need of a Makeup Artist. This pro brush range has quickly become a permanent fixture in the kits of Makeup Artists and Celebrities worldwide.
In 2010 Cassie opened a high end, fashion Makeup school based in Manchester. Cassie Lomas Makeup Academy has firmly established itself as the place to train in the North West with its outstanding reputation and ongoing success driven by her passion to help those artists who are focused, dedicated and passionate. CLMA teaches at an excellent standard combined with a highly regarded aftercare service. Cassie’s priority is always to help build careers during and after training. Cassie Lomas Makeup Academy has become the school of choice for those who want to excel in a career in Makeup as well as providing fun and friendly training days for generally brushing up on your own makeup.
Following on from the success of CLMA in Manchester, the courses will soon be available in London. Cassie prides herself on offering something for all levels.
But how did this all begin?
After a brief stint in front of the camera the intrigue in makeup and all those pots of colour forced a young Manchester girl to realise her dream. This was the 90’s…. inspired by Kate Moss and lip gloss. Having initially trained at a local college Cassie began working in fashion and soon realised that in order to be the best London College of Fashion was a must. After 5 years of hard work in the North West Cassie decided to relocate to London and work even harder to be the best she could possibly be. After just one year her career quickly progressed to travelling the world painting faces and by 2005 Cassie realised this dream was now her job!
Since then, Cassie has built up a wealth of experience in a variety of fields. Her versatility has allowed her to work on a range of projects from working with celebrities and on music videos, to fashion and advertising campaigns. Although her work is mainly in photography, Cassie also works on many TV shows, as well as preparing clients for red carpet events.
Cassie has also led the makeup team at London Fashion Week for designer Clements Ribiero, which has so far been the pinnacle of her career.
Working with leading photographers such as Max Abadian, Rankin and Simon Emmett and designing the makeup on advertising campaigns ranging from Julian McDonald to Adidas has ensured Cassie is now firmly placed as one of the country’s leading makeup Artists.
With a CV full of celebrity clients, ranging from the legendary Lady Gaga with whom she travelled the world on tour, to the 60′s Supermodel, Fashion and Makeup Icon Twiggy, who she spent years admiring, Cassie is certainly known for being a go to trusted Makeup Artist. Music is where her career began and she has shot videos with some of the finest directors around and all over the world from Brazil, to India and back to her favourite location, Manchester.
Having worked as a brand ambassador since 2007 and currently working alongside ‘B’ is for Beautiful, the Superdrug own brand, Cassie is regularly sought after to provide expert tips, quotes and advice for glossy magazines and online beauty pages. With several appearances on TV to help the non-professionals keep their make up bag in fashion, Cassie regularly films beauty videos for shows such as “Lorraine Kelly” on ITV, as well as starring as part of the ‘Style Team’ in the daytime ITV show “Star Treatment”!
In all the glamour of private jets and the celebrity lifestyle Cassie’s true love and focus is to always strive to improve and excel, not only herself but all her graduates from her Makeup Academy CLMA to ensure a long and rewarding career no matter what direction it takes.
