Over the past decade I have carved out a varied and interesting career as a bridal, TV and fashion makeup artist. My first break came in landing the amazing role of Lancôme’s National Makeup Artist, covering events and promotions all over Ireland. I found myself out on the road representing the brand at events such as Dublin Fashion Week and Xposé Live, and at makeover demo’s in Brown Thomas, Debenhams and other promotions nationwide. My early years with Lancôme were a truly invaluable and excellent experience, allowing me to work on everyone from men to mature ladies to fashion models.
I have since been based in my home town of Carlow, and have established myself over the past few years as one of the region’s top bridal and special occasion makeup artists. With a real passion for weddings, I provide a top-notch wedding day call-out service, and offer my clients a fun and relaxing experience when visiting my studio. It’s a real girlie heaven with state-of-the-art lighting, mirrors, a super comfy chair at the makeup bar, and a relaxing beauty bed for brows and facials. I have built up a loyal clientele for my perfectionism in eyebrow tinting & shaping, lash tinting and relaxing facials, as well as all things makeup!
My makeup work from glamour to gore has featured regularly on RTE, TG4, TV3 Xposé, BBC, Sky Sports and Irish TV. I have worked on many celebrity shoots and for publications such as Confetti Magazine, Woman’s Way, The Irish Times, Irish Independent, The Daily Mail, You Magazine, RTE Online Beauty Blog and Surreal Beauty Magazine US. With such experience, I understand the effect of lighting and photography on make-up, and how to make each client look flawless with long-lasting results.
“Every face is different, interesting and individually beautiful. Whether my client wants a dramatic party look, something novel and fresh, a vintage twist, or a classic soft bridal makeup, my job is to create the best result using the best products, making you look and feel fabulous whatever the occasion!”
