At his core, Sir John considers himself an artist. He gained a firm grasp on different mediums like brush strokes and nuances of color and shading through studying the arts in his school years, an innate understanding that eventually led him to makeup.
Sir John has built a reputation in the industry for his creative use of color and ability to transform women without masking their natural beauty. Named a L’Oréal Paris celebrity makeup artist in April 2014, he lends his insight to everything from product development and on camera how-to’s to social media initiatives. Sir John got his start assisting industry heavyweights Pat McGrath and Charlotte Tilbury, but it was a fortuitous backstage run-in with Beyoncé at Tom Ford's first women's wear show in 2010 that proved career-changing. Crediting Beyonce as his artistic muse, the relationship catapulted Sir John's industry presence.
He has solidified his role as a respected backstage mainstay in fashion and gives a voice to his work by contributing to esteemed publications as Vogue.com, Style.com, Models.com, The Coveteur, InStyle and Teen Vogue. Sir John's signature versatility and creativity has made him one of the most respected names in Beauty. This young artist has achieved his own star status with snaps of his globetrotting life and behind-the-scenes work on women like Beyoncé, Karlie Kloss, Joan Smalls, Iman, Chrissy Teigen, Serena Williams, Khloe Kardashian, Margot Robbie, and Viola Davis.
"Social media has become a great resource for creative types. The platforms are a very effective way for me to inspire others and get inspired by the masses," says Sir John. As his name has portended, he’s become makeup nobility.
