Welcome to my world. I would like to introduce myself. My name is Joanne aka JAM FACE, but please call me Jo. You are probably wondering why JAM FACE? Well JAM is my initials; Joanne Alison Mackay and I specialise in faces. I love faces and have over 10 years of experience in studying them, analysing them and painting them. I am British born and I’m now residing on the small balearic island of Ibiza.
My love for faces first began when I worked and trained as a makeup artist with MAC Cosmetics in London. Then one day I decided I didn’t want to get on the tube again, work for someone else or travel across London with 20 ton of makeup in the rain and so I branched out as a makeup artist in my own right. JAMFACE was born.
So a little about what I have done… Well I am extremely proud to have an exciting and rapidly growing profile, adding editorial work for Componere Magazine, The Independent, VICE Brazil and many more to my makeup portfolio. I have worked on many high profile events and award ceremonies including The MTV Awards, BAFTA Awards and Gucci and P.Diddy fragrance launch shows. From Take That to Erin O’Connor, Lady Victoria Harvey to Tyrese, David Furnish to Jo Wood, performers and celebrities trust me to create their signature look for any special occasion. My knowledge of makeup, coupled with my wide-reaching experience in beautifying faces, make me a very busy bee.
Fashion is where you will find me at my most creative. Season after season of 6am call times, London and Paris Fashion weeks hold a special place in my brush belt. I have had the privilege to work alongside some of the biggest names in the makeup industry including Kabuki, Terry Barber, Sharon Dowsett, Charlotte Tilbury for designers including Vivienne Westwood, Elie Saab, Giles, Roland Mouret couture and my personal favourite Manish Arora.
After swapping the Thames for the Mediterranean I have been living on the island of Ibiza for several years. I have become a very big fan of the balearic lifestyle and the idyllic scenery I am surrounded by everyday. As my home continues to rapidly grow as the number one wedding destination, I continually feel blessed that everyday I wake up to sunshine and my brushes are busy at work all day long. I am honoured to welcome you to my website… please enjoy my faces.
