Warpaint Extra

Serving Pro and Student Makeup Artists since 2003

Print / Digital / Competitions / Podcast


The original UK online weekly magazine for the global makeup industry, Warpaint champions the work of internationally acclaimed artists.  Working with leading artists, we take readers behind the scenes of film, tv and theatre productions; include technical information on products and processes; cover trends and inspirations; and feature news products and launches.


Published annually is Warpaint Extra Magazine which covers every aspect of a make-up artist’s brief.  From blockbuster films and TV productions to editorial shoots and red-carpet events, we bring readers the artist’s own career story.  Regular features cover body art, prosthetics, hair, wigs and SFX, as well as fashion, catwalk, editorial and beauty.  Detailed tutorials and product breakdowns by leading artists build up to a library to keep and refer to the future.

With a targeted and focused readership, Warpaint reaches 15k makeup artists, 600+ colleges and schools, 20k beauty, make-up and hair students and 2k tutors and lecturers.

Brand Giveaways

Running over the Festive Season, the 12 Days of Christmas is our giveaway programme that bring a little extra Christmas cheer to our readers.  12 brands, 12 giveaways and 12 chances to win.  Each day from 26th December to 6th January we unwrap a different festive offering to win, with a prize value of £100 per day.

Make-up Competitions

Designed for all levels of artists, our events are used by universities and colleges to provide crucial competition practice.  We organise and host six industry events each year  in London, Liverpool, Glasgow, Dublin and Manchester.  Winners receive trophies and products prizes from our brand sponsors. 


Launched in 2021, Beyond The Brush is a podcast dedicated to the creative industries.  Created as a collaboration between Warpaint and Paintopia, we chat to famous faces from the worlds of makeup, hair, body paint, photography, arts and social media.  Pitched at both students and professionals alike, we aim to educate, inspire and entertain – and ask those questions that you’ve always wanted to answer and never dared.
