Isamaya Ffrench Career
In 2010, she also joined Theo Adams Company. She was inspired by Kevyn Aucoin’s The Art of Makeup, Making Faces, which she saw when she was seven years old, but she did not focus on make-up in her youth, preferring to pursue other physical arts such as springboard diving and ballet. She decided to learn face painting while studying in London in order to supplement her income. She began face painting at children’s parties, and her talent led to her doing the job for children from London’s upper crust.
Soon after, she began painting adults’ faces and assisted on the 2011 spring/summer menswear show for fellow Central Saint Martins alumnus Christopher Shannon. Ffrench’s first fashion photography shoot was in mid-2011 when she did body painting and clay sculpture for Matthew Stone and Alek Wek for a friend. During the shoot, she worked alongside a professional make-up artist, which inspired her to buy her own kit and specialize in face decoration. She was less interested in beauty conventions, having come from a physical arts background, and more interested in face decoration as a form of identity construction and working with the structure of the face. In 2013, she expanded into window dressing with a display for Liberty’s during London Fashion Week.
She stayed with I-D and was promoted to beauty editor in April 2014. She also incorporates landscapes and forests into her facial art. Ffrench left I-D in 2015 to become an ambassador for YSL Beauté, Yves Saint Laurent’s cosmetics line. In October 2016, she was appointed Creative Artist Consultant for Tom Ford Beauty, where she created the Extrême line, which included metallic lip lacquers and eye shadow. In 2018, Ffrench was appointed creative director of Dazed magazine’s newly launched Dazed Beauty section. She was named Creative Director of Byredo Makeup in 2020, where she created and developed the brand’s line.
