What an amazing evening with make-up artist Jo Leversuch at this month's Aske event
The doors were flung open for the unseasonably warm evening sun last night as we were taken through a fabulous taster in catwalk make-up secrets. Acclaimed make-up artist Jo Leversuch shared her backstage tips and reinforced what we had always suspected - makeup application can be a real meditation moment
Jo's approach has always been to create as natural a look as possible and she took us through how investing in a few skincare rituals up front helps prepare the skin and surfaces ready for the lightest touch make-up:
"Prepping your skin is like wearing good underwear - it's the basics you have to get right"
Jo advised that massaging in a few drops of facial oil to the skin in advance of a night will help to plump up the skin ahead of any makeup application. It gets the blood flowing and helps you create a natural glow to start
Pick your favourite Night-time Face Oil
The Soap Brow Trend is all the rage in 2022 to shape and set your brows in place, but not just any old soap will do. Our glycerine soaps are perfect for creating those fluffy brushed-up brows that ordinary gel can't achieve
Designed as a facial exfoliator our GLOW Face Polish makes the perfect lip scrub to prepare the lips for that slick of lipstick. By buffing them first with a dab of polish on a Q tip, lips plump up with a flood of natural colour and are smoothed in to the ideal surface for the colour of your choice
Want to try all these tips yourself? We've put together the Loved By Jo Collection - a special bundle of Jo's recommended product at the fabulous price of £70 (usually worth £95). Choose your favourite face oil, soap and add in our face polish and the bundle will be discounted at checkout or just pop into our store at Aske to pick it up in person.
