Armand Beasley- Make up artist to the Stars
Armand started off his career as an actor and toured with productions such as The Crucible and Midsomer Nights Dream. During his resting periods he decided to gain other skills and so began his career within the cosmetic industry.

In 2000 he decided to focus on the various media outlets where his affable manner and tips became hot property. Regular slots on GMTV ensured that Armand was 'at home' doing live TV. Most of Armands items involved members of the public.
In 2006 Armand created a series for Discovery Home & Health channel called "Fakeover" where he stopped people in the street and transformed them. More recently he has contributed to Channel 4's "How to look good naked" and the BBC's "Magic Number".

Armand is passionate about beauty and the fact that anybody can look and feel great which is why he writes and contributes to columns in publications such as The Manchester evening news, The Herald (Ireland), Hi Society (Spain),Now, Closer and Vogue.
