Joanne Coleman MUA / Make Up Artist and Beautician
In her 20-year career, Jo has provided exceptional makeup results for TV and film clients, national advertising campaigns, music documentaries, fashion editorials, commercial photo shoots and private clients. She brings a unique combination of warmth, fun and flawless beauty expertise to any professional assignment and loves helping clients all over the UK to look and feel their absolute best – whatever the setting.
Jo offers a truly holistic approach to hair, makeup and skincare and believes that the entire experience should be flawless outside and in. “I’m passionate about professional makeup. I’m obsessive about enriching my clients’ outer beauty and for me, that means ensuring they’re happy on the inside too. I’m always mindful that whether I’m working with a musician, actor, celebrity or bride-to-be that I’m often preparing them for something big. I try to create a sense of peacefulness and inner calm as I work with a client – my previous experience as a reiki practitioner and healer definitely helps! Whether they’re in front of the camera or taking centre stage, I want my clients to look amazing and feel their best too.”
Whether you’re walking down the aisle or gliding around the dance floor at an important social event, Jo can create a look that’s perfect for you and for any occasion and requirement, including:
Theatrical/special effects makeup
Making a lasting impression means choosing the right makeup to create an enduring look. Jo draws from her many years of experience working in different environments including TV and film to achieve stunning results that last.
“Over many years, working in varied professional environments, I’ve learnt how different makeup products and techniques perform in different settings. I combine this experience with the best products available to create a look that lasts, whatever the occasion. No matter what the conditions, I work hard to ensure clients look as beautiful at the end of the day as they did when they left my chair.”
Skincare and Wellbeing
In addition to the above Jo also offers Rose Therapy Facials, she says:
“I use Absolute Bulgarian Rose essential oil, which has been used for many years to improve concentration, uplift mood and generally balance the mind. Physically, it plumps, smoothes, soothes and hydrates the skin, whilst promoting cell renewal thus anti ageing.
Other beneficial properties are that it can aid hormonal imbalances and particular problems which relate to the monthly cycle, long before, during and after the time of menopause.
In conjunction with the beautiful Rose Quartz Crystal wands, I concentrate on massaging the shoulders, neck, face and scalp to send you off into a meditative state of rest and pure bliss.”
