Born and raised in London, Marie Bruce’s passion for beauty began at the age of 16 after meeting an artist who wore bold, colourful makeup. Following her studies at the London College of Fashion, she honed her craft by assisting Andrew Gallimore, Sharon Dowsett and Isamaya Ffrench.
Taking inspiration from unexpected colour combinations found in mundane everyday life such as packaging and cars, Marie’s playful, vibrant and eclectic work also draws from a wide range of cultural references, particularly from the 1970s and 1990s.
Marie’s work has been featured in Beauty Papers, Vogue Italia, Dazed Beauty, The Face, Twin, LOVE, i-D and 10 Magazine. Commercially, she has worked with Fendi, Kenzo, Prada, Ashley Williams, Dilara Findikoglu, Paul Smith, Pat McGrath Labs and Prada. Her celebrity clients include Rita Ora, Naomi Campbell and Christina Aguliera.
