Makeup By Jo

My name is Jo and I am a freelance makeup artist with experience in bridal, glamour, everyday makeup and one on one lessons. I have a very strong passion for what I do and hope that my clients can take something away with them, whether it be a new tip for applying eyeliner, the courage to experiment with a different colour or just a little more confidence in their appearance.

My love for makeup started when I was young, being a member of a dance school from the age of 6 meant that I have had hundreds of occasions where I had to wear makeup for performances. The getting ready was just as much fun as the performing and I never wanted to take the makeup off afterwards.

Growing up I became the girl who did everyone else's makeup for a night out, which I loved (Even though it always only left me with 5 minutes to get myself ready)

Since then I have worked for Mary Kay helping to teach people how to apply their own makeup whilst recommending and selling products. I have also done a handful of weddings including brides, mothers of the bride and numerous bridesmaids.


I have experience in bridal, glamour, theatre and everyday/natural makeup looks. I use a large range of products including high end - MAC, Clinique, Daniel Sandler and Illamasqua through to lower end - Rimmel, Loreal, Sleek and Barry M. This way, if preferred I can also base your makeup look in line with your budget.
