House of GlamDolls is a creative hub of all things makeup, founded by industry experts David Horne and Chinyee Chu. David is both an academic (who has worked at London College of Fashion) as well as a professional makeup artist with 24 years experience in the industry so you really do get the best of both worlds when being taught by him. He has held managerial and directorial roles at MAC and created the fabulous cult Illamasqua products Skin Base, Skin Base Lift, Hydra Veil and Matte Veil to name a few.
The other half of the dynamic duo is Chinyee. She started life off as a Window Stylist at Harvey Nichols and was a Bespoke Jewellery Designer to private celebrity clients. She joined MAC in the 90s and has since had managerial roles at MAC and Illamasqua. Since pioneering the House of GlamDolls her interior and furniture designs have flourished, if you see something cool in the studio, Chin probably made it! She deals with the daily management of the brand and keeps David in check. She also has the loveliest young daughter Ochre, who I’m sure will be taking I’m sure will be taking the world by storm once she’s older!

I’ve completed three courses at House of GlamDolls and will soon be interning with them. The brand is close to my heart as I’ve been following them from the very beginning and they represent everything that is right with the industry. The brand only launched in September 2014 and has shown incredible growth in just four months. I think it’s safe to House of GlamDolls is one to watch!
