Upon arriving in London in Spring ‘79 she discovered that she was one of only a handful of professional makeup artist in the country.
“I am honoured to have been one of the pioneers of this fabulous industry”.
Ariane’s immensely successful career has spanned over 25 years. A leading name in her field, Ariane works with many of the top fashion & beauty photographers and an impressive list of celebrities (see below).
Internationally renowned, Ariane is regularly asked to predict future trends in make-up, as well as give advice and tips on application techniques. Ariane is a regular contributor to many magazines, newspapers and websites.
A regular face on TV, Ariane’s appearances include Style Challenge, GMTV -Lorraine Kelly (beauty presenter for 7 years), This Morning (beauty presenter for 6 years) and the Granada Breeze Make-over Show – ‘Livetime’.

After 4 very successful years as Boots No7’s International spokesperson Ariane launched her own cosmetic range “ariane poole* London Cosmetics” in December 2002.
“As an international make-up artist I’ve had the pleasure of working with celebrities, top models and even royalty. But I get the greatest satisfaction from doing makeovers on real women and showing them how they too can look their best with the right products and some useful tricks of the trade. It has always been my dream to create a line of cosmetics that solves our make-up dilemmas. Products that are easy and quick to use, fun and innovative and above all deliver results. ”My philosophy on make-up is you that should notice the woman not the make-up. When you wear my make-up I’d like everyone to compliment YOU on how great YOU look!”
