"I have worked with Jo Barrass-Short on several of my productions and she has quickly become my number 1 choice as makeup artist for Film and TV.
Jo has all the quality a producer can hope a crew member to have: fast, reliable, positive, friendly, hard working, and creatively involved.
Her makeup work is always rigorously outstanding, and I have only ever heard positive feedback from all the cast members she worked her brushes on.
She only makes friends on set and her attitude contributes to make film-making an enjoyable and successful experience.
Highly recommended artist!!"

"Jo Barrass-Short and I have worked together on several short film projects to date. She is always my first port of call when crewing a new project. She is incredibly hard working and always delivers to a high standard. The demands of projects we have worked on range from classic beauty make up to gory special effects. She is always prepared for any eventuality and is very good at advising and working with directors to achieve their vision.
As well as her strong creative skills, Jo is a joy to have on set. She remains bubbly and upbeat in sometimes incredibly demanding shooting conditions. She has excellent personal skills and works well with both cast and crew.
I highly recommend Jo for any production, she is incredibly talented and a crew member I will continue to work with on future projects."

"As I was shooting my first corporate training product things had to be perfect. There was a huge amount at stake. I had Jo recommended to me by a friend and WOW. Jo's skills as a make up artists are some of the best I have experienced in the acting/entertainment industry.
Not only does she know what she's doing. She managed to make me look "good" on camera. Which I was stunned about. Jo has a really lovely manner about her. She keeps you calm and relaxed, which is really important in such a stressful environment. Jo also has a great sense of humour too which was a massive bonus for me. I love to work and have a laugh at the same time. PLUS...she is always punctual. Very simple you can rely on her to deliver 100%".
