At the end of last year I had the most exciting photo shoot, I have been part of to create the new campaign for “Jim Steinman’s Bat Out of Hell The Musical”
Who cannot love Meat Loaf and the iconic album Bat Out of Hell where we have all sung our hearts out, dancing in our kitchens/bedrooms and at the school disco’s to the never ending songs of I’d do anything for Love, You Took the Words Right out of my Mouth (Hot Summer Night), Dead Ringer for Love and more.
I suggest you get your tickets booked as soon as possible for the thrill of your life. You can book your tickets for London...
My last blog of the year I wanted to celebrate some beauty work which I created for the front cover of La Di Da Magazine.

Check out Page 12 for another glimpse of another look created using blue eyeshadow perfect for New Year's Eve party.
I wanted to create the look with colour and emphasis on 1980’s inspired look ready for the Spring/Summer of 2017 which is in our horizon very soon. The look is all about colour but instead of the strong 1980’s pink blusher I opted to use the Instaglam...
I love receiving surprise parcels in the post especially when it involves make-up!
This week I received the Limited Edition for Christmas by Lola Make-up. The limited edition: All in one Mascara and the Duo Kajal and eyeliner.
I had to try them all straight away so I could see what I thought. I personally normally rock the “smoky eye” look and rarely do I try the cat flick eyeliner look on myself.
The All in One Mascara is what is says on the bottle, the mascara wand is a perfect size to create a lushious look on the eyes.
The Duo Kajal and eyeliner I have at the moment...
In my career and running my own business as make-up artist there is never any month, week or even day that I can't say I am proud to be part of a creative aspect in the industry.
Over the last couple of months I have been working on tutorials for a truly amazing brand Veil Cover Cream. I can now announce in my sheer excitement that I am their Make-up Ambassador. This has brought me to tears at the honour of being part of the brand Veil Cover Cream.
Veil Cover Cream was founded in 1952 by Mr Thomas Blake. The cover cream was created to hide post-operative scars and has continued success...

Kiss the Moon last week won the Pure Beauty Best New British Winner 2016 so I wanted to write another blog on one of my favorite products from the range Glow After Dark Face Polish.
There are so many exfoliators in the beauty industry and it can be quite confusing trying to figure out which ones are suitable for you and still gentle on the skin.
There are four sections in the Kiss the Moon range called Love, Glow, Calm and Dream.
The glow range is secretly my favorite as I love the natural ingredients and scent used from sweet aromatic scent of the orange, to the healing aspect of Myrrh...
A day in the life of Jo. No two days are ever the same with my business and recently I was working with photographer Chris Davis whom I have worked with a lot on some major exciting projects. He asked me to work with him to help create this amazing look for the new Jim Steinman"s Bat out of Hell The Musical, which is showcasing February 2017 onwards.
Make-up kit packed and off I headed to the Holborn Studio London and I had goosebumps when I heard the roar of a Harley Davidson motorbike arriving into the studio. The whole focus on the day was to create the make-up with a "modern feel...
Whilst working during London Fashion Week and assisting alongside the one and only truly amazing inspirational and creative Val Garland for the delightful designer Temperley London, I got the chance to try the new make-up collection and lipsticks by Rodial called Suede Lips.
Rodial Skincare was launched in 1999 with the huge success of the famous Dragon Blood range and drive and determination by Maria Hatzistefanis herself to bring this inspirational brand to the industry.
The Rodial Suede Lips were the first lipstick to be launched straight after the Temperley Show and available to buy online...
