Rebeca Riofrio had an exclusive interview with Gal Gadot’s personal make-up artist.
Let’s find more about the talented Sarah Brock.
Please, could you tell us about your background and how it leads to the work you do today?
I’ve been in the industry for 18 years. I started as a bridal makeup artist (working at over 1,000 weddings) & that work lead to me working with every major bridal designer in the UK & to creating the makeup looks for 24 covers of Conde Nast BRIDES Magazine. I have won awards for my work and have also worked for makeup brands helping with product development. I now regularly work with celebrities, have had work published for several covers of OK! Magazine and am a published makeup & beauty writer. I’ve presented on TV as a makeup expert and worked with amazing brands such as CHANEL. My work was spotted by Hollywood Director Patty Jenkins, who loved what I do and asked me to work as the personal makeup artist to Gal Gadot on the new Wonder Woman movie. Since then, i’ve worked alongside Gal creating the makeup looks for her for red carpet and commercials.
Where are you based?
I am based in Wiltshire in the UK but am regularly working in London and travel around the world.
How would you describe your work to someone who hasn’t seen it before?
I am known for the work I do with skin – I love to create the most natural looking, healthy, glowing skin. I love to make women look naturally stunning.
Who else it’s behind your brand?
It’s just me! I’ve always done all of my press/ PR/ website & marketing.
What or who has been the biggest singular influence on your work?
That’s a difficult question, as I am inspired by so many makeup artists – but if I had to name a few, it would be Mary Greenwell, Lisa Eldridge & Daniel Sandler – I worked with Daniel as the Artistic Director of Makeup for his brand and I learnt a lot from Daniel, plus he’s always been such a support to me and my work.
Which project have you enjoyed working on the most so far?
To work for the ‘Wonder Woman ‘ project It’s hard to choose as I’ve always loved what I do – I’ve been so blessed to work in so many different areas of the makeup industry and I love them all – however, working on the Wonder Woman movie truly changed my life – not only because of the amazing people I was blessed to work with, but I learnt SO much. It was the hardest job I have ever done, but I loved every second of my time there and then to see it come to life and see so many people love the movie is amazing.
