Rimmel London announced they are joining creative forces with top celebrity make-up artist Kirstin Piggott, in her newly appointed role as International make-up artist for the Global Colour Cosmetics Brand. Kirstin, who has previously been supporting Rimmel London as the UK make-up artist since 2009 will now share her expertise across the globe.
It was when studying Fashion Styling for Hair & Make-up at the London College of Fashion that Kirstin really discovered her passion for the world of make-up and has since taken the colour cosmetics world by storm.
Starting her makeup artist career in 2001, Kirstin was already in great demand, frequenting many of the top Fashion Weeks in New York, London, Milan and Paris. By 2004 she started her freelance career, and hasn’t looked back since.
Collaborating with some of the industry’s most renowned photographers, Kirstin’s work can regularly be seen gracing the covers and pages of some of the world’s most influential magazines; Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Another, POP, i-D, Dazed & Confused, the list goes on.
She is equally in demand by some of the world’s most beautiful women who call on her strong reputation for creating the most stunning iconic looks, including of course our own Rimmel Ambassadors Kate Moss and Georgia May Jagger.
Commenting on her new international role, Kirstin says “I am delighted and very excited to take my relationship with Rimmel London to a global level. I have absolutely loved working with the brand for the last 4 years and I can’t wait to bring Rimmel’s cool and edgy London Look around the world. I am also very excited to be working more regularly with two of the most iconic British models, Kate Moss and Georgia May Jagger.”
Friedemann Schmid, VP Global Marketing for Rimmel London, says “We are thrilled to be working with Kirstin as the international makeup artist for Rimmel London. Kirstin is a natural choice for our brand; she has such a great feel for the London fashion and music scene, and how this translates into creating unique and widely followed trends to get that London Look! We very much look forward to working even more closely with Kirstin in the future, and are convinced she is a great ambassador for the Rimmel brand and all its values.”
Renato Semerari, President Coty Beauty, added “As Rimmel London is becoming more and more of a truly global brand it was very important for us to have a global expert such as Kirstin to represent the brand internationally and help us export the London Look”.
Kirstin Piggott will be representing the brand internationally by creating seasonal make-up looks and trends, ‘Get the Look’ tips and being a key Global spokesperson for the brand. Kirstin’s top make-up tips will also be extensively shared across Rimmel’s leading digital platforms.
