Umber Ghauri is a makeup artist, writer, model and public speaker. With a passion for celebrating marginalised identities, Umber began their journey with a degree from The Courtauld Institute of Art, quickly moving onto a makeup training course. Combining an understanding of historical and current representation within art and media, Umber realised the role of makeup artist was one of great responsibility where LGBTQ people, disabled people and PoC are underserved. Umber believes that we should all experience our beauty in a positive environment, where we have control over how we look and how we are treated.
Umber has experience in makeup for theatre, film, photography, performance, and events.
Clients include Mykki Blanco, The United Nations, Alok Vaid Menon, Travis Alabanza, Katy Jalili, Tate Britain, British Film Institute, QX magazine.
