About Face - face painting, make-up and body art by Zoë Thornbury-Phillips


After a bodypaint and make up commission…

I just wanted to email to say a big thankyou for doing our make-up for our halloween wedding party. We had such an amazing time and had lots of great feedback about our outfits, make-up etc. Really pleased we went for something a bit different. It makes it even more special and even more memorable. Thanks for being part of it and making it so special for us. We both loved our designs and will 100% be calling on you for future events.


After a birthday party for a 4 year old…

I really enjoyed our day and learnt so much. Thank you. I will keep in touch about further classes. Thanks…


Hi Zoe,

After making up 27 people for new car launch. 4 artists were used for this event…

I just wanted to thank you for the stupendous job that you and your girls did on Thursday night. The make-up was fabulous - exactly how I had imagined it in my minds eye. Not only that, but you were unflappable and produced those lovely results in less than ideal circumstances. Thank you so much. Please pass on my thanks to your team.
It was lovely to meet you and I hope our paths cross again…
With very best wishes and thanks,


Following an exhibition at NEC Birmingham. Making up 6 performers for 9 shows…

I look forward to working with you again in the near future
Kindest regards
