….beauty video production, looking your best from head to toe.
We’re proficient in producing beauty video content creation for haircare, skincare, nails, tanning, make-up and cosmetics.
Equally as comfy in the studio or the freedom of the outdoors, we can create looks that best reflect your beauty brand, in the hands (or on the skin) of your model. We’ll make sure the lighting’s right and get the most from every pixel.
Working with cosmetics and beauty products is actually quite similar to how we tackle some of our food & drinks projects, finding vibrancy and depth as often as possible. We’re also frequently asked for similar shot types, from flat lays to those including human interaction.
In the last year, we have created a branded beauty video for new haircare brand HairO, and also delivered our first set to TV adverts destined for the far east. Although one of our favourite highlights was coming face to face with an exceptionally large cow while sat in a cow pat in a field. This was while shooting for bodycare brand Byre, incidentally, we didn’t just sit in a cow pat in a field 😉
What we can do
We love shooting beauty video for brands, capturing both faces and products. There’s something about this sector that allows for a huge amount of creativity and experimentation.
While a good amount of our work is used for social media, we also deliver beauty video products for broadcast and advertising, in print for magazines, and larger for out of home billboards, and exhibition stands.
Amongst our usual deliverables, we currently create social media content for engagement, before and after looks, product demos, how-to videos and tutorials, beauty videos for product launches and influencer events and creative product imagery for our current beauty clients. We work with some on a regular basis to create content for engagement or project-by-project.
Who we’ve worked with
Our client list for beauty videos is quite expansive, from regular projects with Yardley and Byre, to campaigns for James Read Tan, social content and products for Urban Veda, nail and beauty videos with Leighton Denny, and wellbeing studio videos for The Healthy Mummy. The diversity is huge!
While we love working for the large brands, there’s something very satisfying about helping emerging beauty brands too with their visual content. It’s often here that we can be a little braver to help them stand out with our use of beauty video production.
A great example
One of our most collaborative relationships is with beauty PR agency CatalystPR, who we work on a number of brands with, from Yardley, to new skincare brand Byre, DrPawPaw and others. We’re commissioned to cover events, launches and social media content in both video and still form. This is a great example of where having a range of services all under one roof can work so well.
We’ve tried to make the commissioning process for creating beauty videos as easy and digestible as possible. We’ll discuss your brief in detail prior to filming which will allow us to understand the full scope of what you’re trying to achieve. We can either quote from the ground-up or work to a pre-set budget – we know everyone will have different spending requirements and limitations for their beauty video, and we do our best to accommodate that budget when providing video production services.
Once we know what we need to deliver in the finished beauty video, we’ll finalise the creative approach with you, organise the dates and capture your footage. The edit process almost always takes longer than production, so we’ll allow for multiple days of work to include time for review and changes. We’ll deliver digital online viewing copies in the run-up to sign-off, but you’re also welcome to join us if you’d rather edit in person.
The great thing about working with video is the options available, and we can usually scale the beauty video production services we provide up or down to find the best quality and budget fit.
For techy readers, we shoot using the latest Panasonic cameras, from the new S1H series. They use some of the latest imaging technology, meaning that they produce exceptional images and respond better than most in challenging lighting conditions. This forms the centrepiece of our video production services, and will allow us up to 6K in resolution and higher quality slow motion.
We complement the cameras with our range of fast lenses to make the best of the full frame sensor. We have super sharp primes, flexible zooms and macro abilities for high quality at all focal lengths.
In addition, we have upgraded clients to work with RED, Blackmagic, Canon C Series and Kinefinity Mavo cameras where we have needed to provide bespoke solutions. These have enabled capture up to 6K with greater detail and higher impact slow motion capabilities.
As standard, we come with sound and lighting, and a number of creative options such as slider movements, gimbals, GoPros and more can be added on.
We have the vast majority of what we need to provide quality beauty video production services in house, right from pre-production, planning, scripting, talent and location sourcing – through to production, edit, QC and delivery.
Our studio space in London Waterloo gives us a great base to handle all kinds of beauty video productions in-house too.
We use strategic partners to support us, from talent directories, to specialist equipment hire, studios and more.
You’ll also find some of our recommended suppliers here who provide everything from agency services to digital, design and web services.

What They Say
“The Pocket Creatives team really helped us achieve our vision and worked solidly and enthusiastically throughout the day. We had ideas of what we wanted, and Steven used his expertise to make that happen. An absolute delight to work with and would highly recommend.
Steven and his team understood what our brand was about from the very beginning, offering creative input that projected our own ideas even further. Thrilled with the photos and they have transformed our brand imagery.”
Tanya Shah, Urban Veda
“We were recommended Pocket Creatives by our PR agency, and have been thrilled with their professionalism, responsiveness, willingness to implement feedback and flexibility. Our internal challenges often mean we’re a little last minute and work to short deadlines, but Pocket have exceeded our expectations and created a high standard of work with very little guidance. We’ve already commissioned additional activity and will be continuing to send work their way in the months and years to come.”
Hayley Hall, Innovaderma/Skinny Tan
“Pocket Creatives were just what we had been looking for. Having a creative team that understand how the brand must communicate, with consistent and clean imagery is critical and PC really capture this. A lovely team to boot, who are obsessed with the detail and getting the most from the brief. Great team, multi-disciplined and talented bunch.”
Susie Willis, Romilly Wilde
“The Pocket team were a pleasure to work with, not only were they super prepared, on time and professional but the quality of work they delivered in a short space of time was fab. I would recommend Pocket Creatives, we couldn’t have asked for a better experience and are thrilled with our short video.”
Holly Sud, DrPawPaw
“We were in need of new digital collateral and after a great recommendation we worked with Pocket Creatives on a video to showcase the brand in a new light.
From going through initial concepts and interpreting our brief, to sourcing location and of course the filming and direction on the day, Steven and the team were amazing and have a great eye for the details.
We are thrilled with the end result, it was beyond expectation. We can’t recommend them enough and are looking forward to the next shoot!”
Vernice Walker, Leighton Denny Expert Nails
“I would highly recommend Pocket Creatives. A fantastic team to work with, extremely professional and always there to help. 4 months on from producing amazing photography work and a great video, Steven is at the other end of the phone helping me with questions I have. The quality of work is outstanding as well as everything else!! Thank you guys, you are amazing at what you do 😊”
