About me
Writer, editor, photographer and podcast host - from newspapers to glossies to video and audio. I'm obsessed with beauty and faces, less obsessed with retouching. All about collaborating and creating beauty/portraits and content that is real. Also host of the BeautyMe Podcast - beauty, beyond the BS.
  • At Home with Beauty Editor Ava Welsing-Kitcher
    At Home with Beauty Editor Ava Welsing-KitcherSuper proud of this week's podcast. It's the first face to face video of 2021, for obvious reasons. Beauty Editor Ava welcomed me into her home - and her bathroom, and beauty cupboard! We compared and shared some of our all-time favourite beauty and fragrance products. Such great fun and so amazing to hang out in such a beautiful space.

  • Photo shoot with celebrity makeup artist Katie Jane Hughes.
    Photo shoot with celebrity makeup artist Katie Jane Hughes.I was lucky enough to spend some time with Katie before she went back to New York, so we recorded a podcast and did a shoot afterwards. If you know Katie, you'll know she's all about real skin, like me, so there is very minimal editing here.

Work history
    FounderCharisse Kenion Ltd
    London, United KingdomFull Time
    Some days I might be working with a major brand on their social media campaigns and writing their blogs; others, I might be shooting products with a new beauty brand or working on a shoot with a hairdresser. The fact that I have worked at literally every level of publishing, off and online means I know how important deadlines and budgets are, but I will never compromise on quality. If that sounds like something you can work with, get in touch! What one of my clients has to say: “We have worked with Charisse for a number of years now, and have always found her to be efficient, professional and full of creative ideas. Apart from the amazing work she does producing our quarterly customer magazine for 50,000+ readers, and providing social media support, she's always happy to give advice on other aspects of our content creation and company branding. She has become an invaluable member of our Marketing department.” David Williams, Marketing Manager, Capital Hair & Beauty
    Co-foundershocreates Ltd
     - London, United KingdomFull Time
    shocreates Ltd provided creative content solutions for the hair and beauty industry. We helped businesses to speak to women about their lifestyle habits, and helped them to engage, build and maintain that audience. As two former journalists and editors, we had spent years communicating with women (and men, in case you're wondering), and with 15 years of experience between us, we knew what worked. During a four year period we worked with huge hair and beauty brands, from ghd to Capital Hair & Beauty, on everything from cool Instagram ads and infographics, mini Fashion Week magazines to full-on corporate (but never boring) marketing materials to keep teams inspired and motivated. was launched as a one-stop destination for women who craved information on hair and beauty, all in one place. We collated news, celebrity trends, catwalk inspiration and expert advice in one stylish, informative and entertaining package.
