We caught up to talk inspiration and her own experiences of mentoring.
What fired your ambition?
I studied economics at university, but afterwards I had a lull where I wondered what to do with my life. I started to assist a make-up artist and never looked back. I became a fully-fledged make-up artist, joined an agency and that was it.
What’s the best piece of careers advice you’ve been given?
Don’t come into the industry expecting glamour and money. Make-up artists are the first to arrive in the morning and the last to leave at night.

What makes a good mentor?
It’s important to have practical experience. I’ve been in the industry 25 years and am still learning.
Millie Kendall is Ruby’s business partner. She started her own beauty PR company and is responsible for launching brands including L’Occitane and Tweezerman.
