Lynne Mills / Founder


Hello & Thank you for being here!

I'm Lynne & the founder of Girl Meets Brush. For those of you that don't know my story already I started out as a MUA back in 2004.

Since starting my career I have been very fortunate to set up & run my make-up team all over the country & work on some amazing projects!

Fashion Work

As well as building my award winning make-up team, I have worked on many amazing shoots, some of which has been featured in Vogue, Marie Claire & Cosmopolitan. I have also worked on projects/briefs for designers Vivienne Westwood, Matthew Williamson & Preen.


Famous Faces

I have also had the opportunity to work with many famous faces over the years, such as the Great British Bake Off Team (the originals - Mary Berry, Mel & Sue as well as Paul Hollywood), Celebrity Juice Presenter Keith Lemon & panelists including Sara Cox, as well as other famous faces such as Anna Friel, Russell Brand, Jimmy Carr, Sheridan Smith, Lauren Laverne, Phoebe Waller-Bridge & Vivienne Westwood.


Back in 2011 I launched my own Eyelash Product line that was stocked by ASOS.com & Harvey Nichols within 3 months of it's launch date, as well as being featured in Sunday Times Style Guide & used by the X-Factor Make-Up Team! This then led me to signing an exclusive licence agreement with Eylure to take the product worldwide!

So anyway this all lead me to Girl Meets Brush! I set up the business in 2015 with the view to 'making make-up simple' for the every day woman but also creating a brand for Make-Up Artists to use with their clients. It's simple really & a win win! Our brush sets are designed to have what you need & with no fluff & impractical brushes that you don't need, but an essential set that does the job!

The next chapter...

Since I launched 2 years ago the business has gone national with our Masterclasses selling out across the UK in over 20 locations

The next stage is launching the ACADEMY which has been my ultimate goal, where I will be creating a range of different courses & opportunities for the beginner up to the working pro, providing on going support with our amazing talented team of Pro Expert MUA's. There will also be business coaching one to one packages from myself available.

Building yourself as a brand & succeeding in business, is not just about the technique of applying make-up & it certainly isn't about pretty 'Selfies'! But it's knowing about how to build that client base, carve your career & be a working successful make-up artist, and this doesn't mean jetting off to London & New York leaving your family behind (although you can if you like I guess!).

My mission is to help & support aspiring make-up artists to produce high quality, timeless & stylish work that will put them ahead of their peers.

It is most importantly building the success right where you already are & in this growing industry the opportunity is all there, trust me!
