L’Oréal Paris has named Val Garland its global makeup director, a role which will see her involved in everything from product innovation to makeup artistry for the brand. A familiar face backstage at London Fashion Week, where she creates the beauty looks for shows such as Erdem and Preen, Garland is also one of Vogue’s most frequent collaborators and was responsible for the make-up on the cover of the new June issue, starring Alexa Chung.
“I can’t wait to get inside the science labs at this number one beauty brand and co-create the makeup that I want to use – and that I think women the world over will want to use too.”
“I’ve always said we don’t need to spend a lot of money to get brilliant, innovative, superior quality make-up products and L’Oréal Paris proves that. I’m looking forward to the challenge of taking on the creative make-up direction at this global brand,” said Garland.
She’s drawn freckles on Taylor Swift for Vogue’s November 2014 issue, created prosthetic cheekbones for Lady Gaga’s Born This Way album and pioneered the “just-snogged” lipstick trend that beauty editors fell in love with at London Fashion Week autumn/winter 2017 – Garland is, without doubt, an inspired choice for such an established brand.
