Mark McDonald

Managing Director

Mark McDonald has over twenty years’ experience working at the cutting edge of the UK Beauty Industry. In that time he has represented some of the most influential and successful Brands on the market, in a variety of increasingly significant roles, all the time building up an unrivalled peer network of key industry contacts.


Mark began his career as a make-up artist for YSL. He remained with the Brand for over ten years, rising through the company, to become at various times, Area Manager, Regional Manager, Training Manager and finally, National Sales Manager. It is this depth of experience, covering everything from the critical, shop floor consumer interface, to setting National Brand Strategy that gives him a comprehensive overview of every aspect of Brand Management. In his time with YSL, Mark was responsible for building the Brand to become one the UK’s top five beauty brands.

In his next role, Mark managed a team which was responsible for implementing the repositioning of the Burberry fragrance Brand in the UK. Mark and his team helped to turn it from a high turnover, into one of the most respected and highest grossing fashion fragrance franchises.

Mark went on to co-found a distribution company, where once again his uncanny eye for spotting and maximising potential, lead to another industry defining hit. Under Mark’s guidance, Clarisonic became the most significant success of recent years, in the process, creating a new and highly lucrative beauty category.

Now, calling on all his experience, Mark has assembled a NEW team of like-minded, proven professionals to form the Mark McDonald Consultancy. His relentless drive and keen business instincts are already paying off. Mark and his team, together, with a roster of formidable Brands combine to make a true beauty powerhouse that will be making waves in the Industry for years to come.
