Thom Walker’s innovative approach to makeup draws inspiration from architecture, using shapes and colours pulled from the urban landscape of his home in East London. Born in Northern England, Walker began his career training with MAC Cosmetics in Paris. Since then, he has gone on to create editorial work for Italian, British, and Chinese Vogue, AnOther, i-D, W Magazine, Double, Luncheon, and Dazed and Confused. His charm and charisma have made him a desired collaborator with photographers including Paolo Roversi, Walter Pfeiffer, Sølve Sundsbø, Tim Walker, Jack Davison, Richard Burbridge, and Nick Knight. He’s also consulted for brands such as Alexander McQueen, Off-White, Hermes, and Thomas Tait, and worked with celebrity clients including Emma Watson, Claire Foy, Kristen Stewart, Mia Goth, FKA twigs, and Rosalía. In 2020, Thom was announced as Chanel’s UK Makeup Artist.
