  • The make up artist will apply make up that will need little or no retouching throughout the day.
  • Your make up will be suitable for photographic purposes.
  • You will look like an enhanced version of yourself, not someone else.
  • The make up artist will listen to what you want and apply the make up accordingly.

My names Joanne Beckham, I m 28 years old. I work as a senior stylist in Hob salons in Loughton. I love shopping, getting pampered and having fun. My aim one day would be to own my own hair and beauty salon.

What in your make up bag?

I have a fascination for make up by MAC which is great for all types of skin, I love all kinds of eye shadows, at the moment I am using a NARS black eyeshadow called ‘Night Breed which is great for smokey eyes I love MAC eyeshadows too, they are ‘to die for , I m using ‘satin taupe and ‘all that glitters . I also use MAC refined golden bronzer which adds a sun kissed look to your skin. Also in my make up bag I have Laura Mercier tinted moisturiser, it a great two in one product.

What your skincare routine?

I always use Nivea face wipes as they are quick and easy to use, occasionally I get spots so if and when I do I use clean and clear face wash and a little bit of Sudocream for fresh breakouts. I always use Darphin Hydraskin light moisturizing gel which is not too heavy

What one beauty product couldn t you live without?

My Yves Saint Laurent lip gloss in number 11 – ‘Golden Whisper’ – it adds a touch of instant glam

Make Up Trends for A/W 2010

Make Up Trends for Autumn and Winter 2010.

Make Up trends are definitely towards the minimalist look this Autumn. Use a sheer foundation or tinted moisturiser to create the ‘barely there look for your skin and highlight cheekbones with earthy tones. Choose to accentuate either your eyes or your lips, but not both.

Although skin tones may be understated the face still needs some colour. Red lips are always in vogue and strong plum, purple and berry lip shades are trending this Autumn. Outline the lips with a lip pencil or brush and, depending on your chosen look, go for the dewy look with lots of lip gloss or tone lips down by blotting with a tissue.

Eyebrows will be in focus this Autumn/Winter. For that special aura of sophistication your eyebrows should be strong and well shaped, preferably by a professional beautician. Colours for the eyes this Autumn/Winter will be purple, plums and winter browns. Smokey eyes are still big so look out for new burnt orange, golds and strong purple colours to enhance this effect.

Eyeshadow duos and quads will be on all the best make up counters. Both MAC and NARS have an absolutely great range of colours. It vitally important to think through your whole look before making the final choice on eye colours, so make plenty of comparisons before you buy.

Top Tips

  • If your lips are bold, softly define your eyes with muted colours, apply eyeliner thinly and use mascara sparingly.
  • The minimalist look calls for well conditioned skin. Care for yours by taking regular facials, either from a professional beauty therapist or by learning how to do an effective DIY version at home.
  • Drink plenty of water to hydrate your skin and make it a general rule to use a sunscreen with a minimum factor of SPF15 daily.
  • Take specialist advice on the right moisturiser for your skin type and establish a thorough makeup cleansing and toning routine before sleeping.
  • Brighten your natural looking skin with a dusting of luminous pressed power to create a warm and radiant glow through the colder months.
  • If you are choosing a light foundation to achieve the minimalist look test it on your jaw line, not the back of your hand, to find the correct shade for you.

What in your make up bag?

Everything I have in my bathroom apart from the toilet.

Seriously my products change dependent on the time of year and my location. At this moment, what I see as my best friend is:

Clinique Quick Liner for lips

Mac Bronze Shimmer Lipstick

Chanel Rouge Noir nail Varnish

Mac Studio Finish Concealer

Maybelline Great Lash Mascara

Iman face Bronzer

What your skincare routine?

Skincare routine – For make up removal I use Simple facial wipes. I wish I could use Johnson baby wipes, as they really do leave your face feeling as soft as a babies’ bottom. However the result for me is waking up with a face producing enough oil to fry chips.

What one beauty product couldn t you live without?

Clarins Beauty Flash Balm. This product is FIERCE. Everything is smoothed out before you apply your make up.

Who do you most admire for their style and beauty and why?

There are too many style icons to list as I am a sucker for glamour, fabulosity and edgy fashion. However, my own style mixes between Hollywood Glamour and British Rock Chick Fashion.
