Ruby Hammer MBE is perhaps best known for founding Ruby & Milly cosmetics with beauty publicist Millie Kendall in 1998, and she is also of course a renowned makeup artist in her own right. Ruby has worked for the fashion likes of John Galliano and Ghost, as well as TV shows such as Britain's Next Top Model. She was awarded her MBE for contributions to the cosmetics industry in 2007.
