About Showmakeup

How it all started

Way back in 1996, my wife and I went on a theatre training course in Doncaster. We met a makeup artist who used Grimas professional makeup and were extremely impressed by how easy it was to use and how professional the results were. We had our first training course with Grimas a few weeks later and started selling their products the following year. We were internet pioneers in those day. Ours was the first website to sell Grimas in the UK.

Who is our shop for?

Our message is that professional makeup is not just for professionals. It is a high quality makeup that everyone can use. It doesn't come gift wrapped in fancy packaging. In fact most of our makeup comes in containers made with recycled plastic. It's not animal tested and it's not sold in countries that require it.

If you are face painting one child or making up the entire cast of a musical, we can help.
