Linda Mason - Makeup Artist


Linda Mason is known for her creative and exciting use of color. Born in Sunderland, in the northeast of England. Linda’s mother, who expertly imitated the hottest designer fashions of the day and whose eccentric home renovations transformed their neighborhood, inspired in her a fascination for artistic expression.

In 1967 Linda studied and then worked for Lancôme in Paris. From 1970 till 1975 she modeled for five years before becoming the premier makeup artist for Helena Rubenstein. In 1979, the fashion world was rocked by a revolution, with makeup artist Linda Mason at the forefront. Designers brought fashion to an art form creating runway shows that weren’t simply a marketplace, but full throttle theatrical performances.

Linda worked on early collections for Jean-Paul Gaultier, Anne Marie Berretta, Theirry Mugler, John Galliano, Commes des Garcons, Yohji Yamamoto, Giorgio Armani, Issey Miyake and many others. The diligence, skill, and ingenuity of these designers inspired her to further develop and refine her own work.

In the early 80s, Linda moved to New York, where her cutting-edge work with renowned photographers Deborah Turbeville, Richard Avedon and Steven Meisel continued to make headlines. The Wall Street Journal stated that “Mason…took face painting out of punk and into high fashion.” Linda also worked with many celebrities, including Cameron Diaz, Kate Moss, Uma Thurman, Brooke Shields, Carol Alt, Joan Jett, Deborah Harry, Naomi Cambell and Charlize Theron.

Linda launched her makeup company, Linda Mason Elements, inc., in 1987. Her products have been carried in Barney’s, Henri Bendels and Nordstroms. In 1998 Linda opened “Linda Mason, the Art of Beauty” her shop and gallery in Soho, New York City the space also houses a workshops for professionals and as an experimental space to create her hand made compacts, makeup accessories and Art.

Since 1985, Linda has published five books about makeup. “Makeup, The Art of Beauty” is used as the handbook for her classes; it is now out in paperback and sold across the world. “Teen Makeup” published in 2005, “Eye Candy” released in May of 2008, a best seller already in reprint in the US, Japan and Russia. Her latest book “Makeup for Ageless Beauty” was launched in the spring of 2011 together with her Freestyle Makeup video Glorious Technicolor.

Linda continues to break boundaries with her fusion of Beauty and Art and to continue to develop and show her visual Art, painting, mixed-media collage, photography and glass art. Her pieces range in style from classical to abstract, reflecting her dynamic personality and variety of sources of inspiration. A selection can be seen online or at her Gallery in Soho, 26/28 Grand St. NY. NY. 10013.
