After spending a week catching my breath and getting back up to speed with my work back here in the UK I wanted to take time to post a final peak into my life during show season. As always with its been a busy yet rewarding few weeks, I'm always grateful for the opportunity to work on teams with talented creatives refining my skills and creating my signature perfected skin looks for the designers.
Here are some pictures from behind the scenes in London, Milan and Paris which capture a day in the life of Jo on catwalk shows. From a rare day off in sunny Paris to garment close ups and snaps of products...
It's that super busy time of the year again for me working backstage at fashion week this February in London and Milan with Paris quickly approaching. Here are some final make-up looks so far from teams I have been working with and proud to be a part of, I hope you enjoy them!

2019 has started and we are already now in the 3rd week of January already, I've been busy getting stuck into a new year of exciting and creative work. My latest and first piece I wanted to share with you this year is my work on some looks with award winning hairdresser Marcus King of King and I.
To create the looks for these images I wanted to keep the focus on a very natural appearance as it was all about hair that Marcus has created for this photoshoot.

It's Christmas Eve and 2018 is soon coming to a close so I wanted to share with you a set of gorgeous images from one of my last bits of work this year.
However first I wanted to take a moment to reflect on how grateful I am for the work I have had the opportunity to be part of in the last 12 months. To have graced the pages of beautiful magazines such as Jules B, Belle Bridal, La Di Da and Unveiled. To have participated in workshops talks, demos in the UK sharing and doing work to support the wonderful charity the Teenage Cancer Trust. I have been so lucky to travel working fashion shows...
It's December and we're all thinking about christmas and all things winter. I thought my work for this shoot with Rock N Rose was perfect to share with you especially for this time of year. These beautiful and festive star earrings are truly amazing, I may even have to get these earrings as a christmas gift to myself!
Always such a great company to work with to create very soft and feminine yet powerful images that let their stunning jewellery shine. If you fancy a pair for yourself you can find them here: Adriel Star Hoop Earrings.
To create the look I used:
Here are some images from a shoot I worked at the Newcastle Intu Metrocentre for with Dutch designer clothing company G-Star Raw last weekend. The brand is well know for specialising in iconic denim pieces. For this shoot celebrating the opening of their new store at the Intu Metrocentre the models wore jumpsuits of a classic industrial work uniform style reinterpreted in a creative contemporary way. Therefore I opted to go for a light natural makeup on the models, keeping them looking soft and fresh faced whilst allowing the spotlight to remain on the clothes.
