Already passionate about make-up artistry, Natalie Vest-Jones got a job at Sephora as soon as she turned 18. There, she found herself curious about the unique vision and story of brands she encountered, discovering the part art direction plays in the creative process and later moving to Southampton to study the discipline at uni. Having created a fantasy-inspired coffee table book for her final project, she’s since launched its spin-off as a standalone magazine, Sanxtuary, which seeks to platform BIPOC and queer talent. Outside of her personal work, she’s also spent time as a make-up artist and art director for brands such as Lazy Oaf, working on their latest spring campaign shoot. Here, Natalie chats with us about the importance of networking in her creative disciplines and how to make a name for yourself in a new, big city.
