Zak Liam

Head Reception and Front of House, Make-Up Artist

We are proud to have Celebrity Make-Up Artist Zak Lee Liam Ryan in our team. He has recently been promoted to Head of Reception and Front of House in Rayleigh. Zak’s ethos, his style and his work reflect our philosophy of elegance, pure and natural looks and only-the-best -is -good-enough- for-our-clients approach. Zak’s excellent customer care and people skills, coupled with his experience in media and make-up are very highly valued by staff and client like. Originally working for NARS cosmetics, Zak gained his artistic skills from some of the top makeup artists and influencers in London.

Working for companies such as Bobbi Brown, NARS and Shisheido, Zak’s passion for makeup allowed him to be spotted and relocated to Marbella where he worked amongst the stars from TV shows such as “The only way is Essex”, “Life on Marbs” and “Love Island; allowing him to gain clients such as Natalie Richardson, Pascal Craymer and Essential magazine Marbella.


We love that Zak wanted to move against the hard look of heavy over-used makeup used on reality TV, and approached his celebrity clientele with a natural beauty enhanced finish. He says “make up is not a mask. It is a form of art. A passion. An enhancement of your true beauty!’

What our clients say

I was very happy with my new lips. I will never go anywhere else now! I was given professional aftercare and a review two weeks later to see how my lips were doing. As a client this is very important because it makes you feel comfortable and like you’re in safe hands.
