Gary Cockerill Books & Biography
Gary Cockerill was born and raised in the village of Armthorpe, South Yorkshire. After working as a miner to earn enough money to move to London, he established himself as one of the UK’s top make-up artists without the help of formal training or contacts. Over the past 20 years, he has accumulated a vast collection of celebrity clients and his work features regularly in magazines, music videos, TV shows and advertising campaigns. He is also in demand in front of the camera, appearing on numerous TV programmes. This autumn he will be presenting Sky One’s new flagship show ‘Promzilla’ and is bringing out his own make-up range early next year. Gary lives in central London with his husband Phill Turner and their dogs Dolly Parton and Scarlett O’Hara.
