Makeup Artist // Co-founder of MYKITCO & James Molloy Makeup School

 

A 20+ year veteran of the makeup world with artistry at his core. An open book regarding education and an advocate for quality tools making the life of a makeup lover looking and functioning the best they possibly can. 
Since childhood, I have always been fascinated with the world of art and fashion and discovered makeup artistry in my early 20s. Beginning my career in retail and quickly expanding into backstage and celebrity makeup artistry, I took inspiration from my global travels as a makeup artist, to create my own unique style of beauty. Some of my career highlights include directing shows for the industry’s biggest designers from Stella McCartney and Moschino to Proenzer Schouler and Ellery, as well as featuring in Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and Numero magazines and working with the likes of Jourdan Dunn, Leona Lewis, Maria Bakalova, Bebe Rexha, Addison Rae and Hailee Steinfeld.
"Celebrate your creativity through the art of makeup"
Returning to the UK in 2015 after many years in Asia, my partner Alex and I thought there was a gap in the market for great quality yet affordable makeup brushes and accessories and combined our years of experience to create MYKITCO. This exciting brand has become an absolute staple in makeup kits worldwide and gained an incredible following from both industry leaders and makeup lovers as well as winning the Harper’s Bazaar’s Best of the Best 2018 for Makeup Brush Range and Cosmopolitan’s Best Brush Set 2019. I am incredibly proud of what we have achieved so far, with huge thanks to you – the makeup lovers – for your continued support. With so many new & exciting products in the pipeline, we can’t wait to see where we take the brand together!

Love,
