Kent Makeup By Jo
Professional Makeup Artist
Bridal | Film | Print | Fashion
I am based in Broadstairs, Kent and have been working in Makeup for the past 15 years since graduating from the Delamar Academy of Makeup & Hair in 2004.
I believe that the perfect wedding makeup artist should be able to listen to what you want, advise on the best way to achieve that and then bring your idea to life to give you that perfect bridal makeup look. It isn't just about looking amazing on the day, I want your look to last till you bid farwell to your guests at the end of the day and I will always strive to achieve that. We will spend time at your trial detailing everything you want, looking through a digital portfolio for inspiration or discussing looks you have already found. This time ensures that your actual wedding day makeup will be everything you want it to be.
Since graduating I have worked all over the UK and across Europe and on international projects. During my working career I have supported celebrity makeup artists Sue Sian and Lisa Stokes on numerous shoots and programmes. My work on the short film 'The Run' was nominated for Best Makeup at the Malibu Film Festival.
I work with many high quality brands including MAC, Smashbox, Urban Decay, Benefit, Bobbi Brown, Makeup Geek, Make Up Forever, Airbase, Estee Lauder, Laura Mercier, Clinique and many more. I can also work with your own makeup or advise on specific products for a particular skin type.
Having worked in fashion and print I fully understand the impact of flash photography on makeup, the harsh strobe of the camera will often bleach your features, I will balance your makeup to give you a subtle & flawless look to the eye but with the weight to give the definition needed to survive all those photo calls on your big day.
