Sophie Dutta is a makeup artist based in London.
I trained in all aspects of Hair and Makeup at Delamar Academy, including Fashion, Film & TV, Wigs, Special FX and Bridal Makeup. Highlights include SKY Atlantic Drama Fortitude, working as Makeup Artist on BBC drama Holby City, various ‘Dailies’ on multiple mainstream TV series’ and working as Wigs Assistant on Matthew Bourne’s Swan Lake at Sadlers Wells. I also really enjoy doing wedding hair and makeup throughout the year, after all variety is the spice of life.
“The service was wonderful from beginning to end, great initial consultation, finding out exactly what I wanted and also advising what would look good. On the day the make up was perfect and stayed there all day. I would recommend Sophie to anybody.”
“Do what you love, and love what you do.”
Experimenting with Drama
Film & TV Makeup
During my time at Delamar, I trained in Makeup for Film and TV, Makeup for Fashion, Bridal Makeup, Special Effects Makeup, Prosthetics as well as Hair Styling and Wig-making. Taught and supervised by industry professionals at the top of their game, I have picked up some fantastic tips and tricks of the trade.
Although the audience isn’t always aware of it, Film, TV and Theatre Makeup are essential in successfully portraying the believable story of a certain character. From Period Makeup looks to more contemporary or natural designs, from Casualty and Character makeup to Prosthetics and Special FX. I’m in my element making up different faces for different themes.
I understand the importance of finding the right colours, products and techniques for each individual woman so that she can be confident as well as comfortable. I always ask if there is anything my clients want to add, take away or experiment with in order to ensure they are 100% happy with their final look. We will not stop until they are happy!

Bridal & Wedding makeup
Bridal Makeup is key to making sure any Bride looks and feels beautiful, happy and radiant on their special day. I understand the importance of finding the right colours, products and techniques for each individual woman so that she can be confident as well as comfortable.
Bold and beautiful styles.
Making a statement
Hair is such an important tool for any working Makeup Artist as it can transform a simple basic or period makeup into an authentic character or an amazing visual treat! Hair completes and enhances any look, whether it’s Bridal, Retro, Contemporary or Character Makeup.
Fancy up-do’s, voluminous waves, textured tresses and loose styles each have their own place in Makeup and Hair Design as they help to achieve the overall ‘WOW’ factor in any look. I love a good hair challenge and I endeavor to always be expanding my hair skills!
Film & TV
I love the variety of genre and recreating looks for both screen and stage. If I know there is an upcoming look or technique required that I haven’t had to do or use in a while, I will make time to practise and perfect it to the best of my ability so that I can be confident I know what I need to do on the day.
Bridal & Wedding
Whether creating classic looks or more of a modern fairytale twist. I understand the importance of finding the right colours, products and techniques for each individual woman so that she can be confident as well as comfortable.
I love a good hair challenge and I endeavour to always expand on my hair skills. There are always new tools and techniques coming out so the possibilities and learning opportunities are endless no matter how long you’ve been in the industry.
Photo shoots are a great way for people to bring their creativity together and produce something visually stunning or intriguing. Photographers, Stylists, Hair and Makeup Designers and Models will each bring their own ideas to the shoot and the results can be fantastic.
