Icelandic born makeup artist & illustrator Isak Helgason is known for perfecting skin and precise, and beautiful make-up. Isak has enjoyed working with photographers such as Juergen Teller, Silja Magg, Arved Colvin Smith, Kari Sverriss, Pelle Crepin, Theresa Marx & Matt Irwin and for publications including Elle, Glamour, L’Officiel, Sunday Times Style & Hunger, and is the Contributing Beauty Editor of Glamour Magazine (Iceland). His celebrity client base is an enviable mix of actresses, music artists and top models including Dua Lipa, Olga Kurylenko, Katy Perry, Toni Garrn, Anja Rubik, Constance Jablonski, Cara Delevingne, Poppy Delevingne & Nicole Scherzinger. Isak comes from a fine art background and views make-up artistry as just that, a beautiful art form and loves to draw his inspiration from old Russian art, Tibetan tapestry and the colors of India. He spent years teaching make-up workshops to students across Scandinavia on using emotion in your work and has been fortunate enough to collaborate on pieces with respected artist Gabriela Fridriksdottir and recently with Of Monsters & Men on their acclaimed video for 'Little Talks’.

Isak resides in East London.
