Jo_Drake_about

I’ve been a makeup artist since 1992 having achieved an HND at The London College Of Fashion in hair and make-up fashion styling , my talent for creating the right look has allowed me to work on a diverse range of productions, including BBC ‘Attenborough At 90’, BBC Breakfast News, Crimewatch, Made In Chelsea, The BBC 999 Awards, GMTV, John bishop In Conversation With.., Have I Got News For You, and Sky Sports’ Soccer AM. Film work has included Ralph Fiennes’s Coriolanus, while my flair for interpreting the current makeup trends has seen my work appear in ads for Wispa and Debenhams, and in fashion and editorial shoots for magazines including Vogue, Elle, Hello, and OK!.

During the course of my work, I have made up a huge variety of public figures and celebrities, including Trevor McDonald and Kirsty Young on a regular basis, as well as Jon Snow, John Cleese, Carol Vorderman, Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, Dustin Hoffman, Lenny Henry, Rick Edwards, John Barrowman, ‘White Lies’, ‘Fightstar'(Charlie Simpson of former band ‘Busted’) and The Stereophonics.

Alongside my TV and magazine work, I also specialise in make-up for special occasions, giving makeup lessons and also skin camouflage including temporary covering of tattoos.
