A personal service

I would say that I was guided to my purpose as a wedding makeup artist. Having qualified as a Beauty Therapist in 2006, I visited an angel card reader in 2010 and received guidance to pursue another avenue of creativity.
From here I was inspired to pursue a degree in Makeup Artistry in LA Academy in Dublin and within that course, I just knew I had found my niche.
My knowledge expanded from there consistently, working in various countries during my travels, gaining experience of different cultures, trends and styles.

Successfully self employed to date, and renowned for Bridal & occasion makeup, primarily in the Northwest of Ireland, I am blessed in being supported by a strong network of fellow wedding professionals.  I have formed connections with a strong group of like minded wedding professionals and get to work alongside them regularly in many of Ireland’s leading wedding venues.
