Welcome! My name is Kerrin Jackson and I have been working as a makeup artist for film and television for the last 25 years.

I’m hoping to share some insights and experiences about my favorite makeup and skincare products. As well as techniques and tips and tricks of the trade. I want to learn about some new products myself and help you with your beauty concerns and curiosities along the way too!

Over the course of my career I have made up everything from aliens to werewolves, centaurs to zombies and created beauty looks from the 1800s to the present day. With such a broad makeup career behind me, it will be very exciting to talk about products and techniques and all the things we all love about makeup, and why we love them.

However, I’m not just a makeup artist! I’ll also be sharing some of my interests outside of makeup as well. Gardening takes up a lot of my spare time and I am passionate about animals and the natural world. I also have an appreciation for art, new and old and am an avid movie lover. Where do we stop?

I have enjoyed a great deal of traveling over the years. My location work has seen me fortunate enough to visit some beautiful and exotic places across the globe. I look forward to sharing some of these experiences along the way.

Creating a little Basil Gogos homage in makeup form

Film and television makeup work is fast-paced. It can be stressful at times and often means working long hours. It is intensely grueling and somewhat removed from the glamour that the end product may lead you to believe. However, it is utterly addictive and rewarding!

Well, with all that said, I’d love to again say welcome aboard! I hope we can have a laugh along the way, perhaps learn a thing or two as we go 🙂

So, welcome to my musings!!
