Polly Osmond

Makeup Artist



Known for her flawless skin and a refined eye, Polly Osmond is one of the fashion world’s most sought after make-up artists. Her work has graced the pages of top international publications Allure, ELLE, Glamour, Harper's Bazaar, i-D, Love, Numero, Vogue and W Magazine.

Born in England, Polly originally studied art and theatrical costume design. Her passion for colour, texture, light and photography, propelled her career in make-up. An artistic ingénue, she is constantly inspired by her surroundings. “One of the makeup looks I designed for New York Fashion Week was inspired by a wet winter street in NY.” Polly has worked with legendary fashion photographers Annie Leibowitz, Liz Collins, Mario Testino, Norman Jean Roy, Patrick Demarchelier, Paolo Roversi, Carter Smith, Tom Munro, Peter Lindburgh and Solve Sundsbo.

Throughout her career, Polly has keyed shows in New York and Paris for globally renowned fashion houses such as Nina Ricci and exciting young designers such as Christian Siriano.

Polly works between New York City and her home base in London.
