The former model, entrepreneur, style expert and motivational speaker runs a company called Make Up Your Mind which offers instructional courses to aspiring make-up artists.

With Hollywood’s clients including Geena Davis, Jenna Redgrave, Kimberley Elise, TLC’s Chilli, Gloria Govan, Capone, Rodney Perry, Idris Elba, Hugh Laurie, Nigel Havers, Lyfe Jennings and Robin Williams, Kim is ready to give London the touch of glamour with her exclusive make-up master courses.

“I will be launching my sought after one week intensive classes in London where I will be teaching some of the newest Hollywood techniques. I’m extremely excited to return to the UK where I resided for many years, and I can’t wait to teach all the aspiring make-up artists the wonderful and fulfilling world of Make-up Artistry,” said Kim.

The beautiful mother who has a 10 year old daughter with Hollywood star and Golden Globe winning actor Idris Elba is also hoping to provide the make up courses in London schools yearly.

Prior to starting her own company, Kim worked for the BBC in London and at Colombia Tristar in Hollywood. She attributes much of her current success to her many years at these major studios, where she honed her skills and built lasting professional relationships.

Kim is keen to share her skills with make-up artists aspiring to join the trade.

We will soon feature an exclusive interview with Kim Elba on Pauline Long’s Celebrity Corner.
