For True Editorial Flair

Makeup. Sonia

With a number of campaigns for Harper’s Bazaar Arabia, D&G and Ferragmo under her belt, Makeup.Sonia’s resume is a testament to her skills. Just one look at her Instagram feed will tell you she’s a master of the ‘barely-there’ loos, artfully and subtly accentuating her clients’ natural features to help them feel like the best version of themselves. Her creativity is something she often pours into her editorial work, so don’t be afraid to ask for something a bit more ‘out there’ if you’re feeling brave.
