From creating new trends on the catwalk to winning numerous beauty awards, Mary continues to be one of the best makeup specialists in the industry.

Iles Formula Women : Mary Greenwell

Editorially she’s worked with Vogue UK, Vogue USA and Vogue Italia alongside legendary editors Grace Coddington and Liz Tilberis on cover shoots featuring supermodels Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista, Stephanie Seymour and Cindy Crawford. Whilst her celebrity clients range from Cate Blanchett, Jessica Chastain, Amanda Seyfried and Uma Thurman to name a few.
