New Bridal Set.

I know I am so bad at updating my portfolio here and on my Facebook etc but I am trying to get better at chasing up photographs from brides and photographers I've worked with in the past.
One of those lovely brides Louise just sent me on her full photo set which came out absolutely gorgeous.
Her wedding was held in the Meyrick Hotel, Eyre Square, Galway City in January and her photographer was Michael Dillon who has such an amazing eye for beautiful shots.

Check out more of the photos from that set here in my Bridal makeup tab.

The Natural Bride, Full Face Makeup Lesson (Video)

It's that time of year again where a lot of brides-to-be really begin the investigation process (after many getting engaged over the Christmas period) and an important part of that process of course is the makeup! When I was working with MAC particularly, I often found that a lot of girls who favour the no-makeup or natural makeup look were nervous about booking the makeup, especially as MAC artists have a reputation for doing full-on makeup looks, but as a makeup artist it is beyond essential to be able to cater for every taste and style of makeup, including the most natural of makeup looks.
In this video, I have created a very natural, no-makeup makeup look perfect for brides who dislike the feel and look of makeup on their skin. This is also geared towards ladies who tend towards a drier skin type. I will be following up soon with a slightly more dramatic yet classically bridal makeup look and in that video I will tackle an oilier skin type. If you are lucky enough to be normal in the skin department then you can more-or-less use any formulation of products on your skin.


Fell free to leave any questions or comments for me here below in the comments section or e-mail me at;

Hope this helps!

Makeup MasterClass; March '15.

I started holding Makeup Classes along with my colleague and good friend Hayley Coleman last November, and on Sunday just past, we held our 3rd class to date in the very posh G-Hotel, Galway and we were both delighted with how it went, despite my running at about 30% with a bad migraine. Thankfully Hayley (the legend!) really saved the day, taking the reigns and helping me survive afternoon.
Despite my health issues though, I thoroughly enjoyed meeting everyone!!! 

And we couldn't be more thankful to all our sponsors for the day, which included.....

Heavy Duty Concealers; 5 of the best!

(This is another post I've stolen from my other blog that I think will benefit everyone as most people have at one time or another some skin issues that need serious products to cover them up!)

If I had to choose between foundation & concealer, the concealer would win hands down.... BUT it has to be a really flippin' good concealer!
Obviously foundation can be a girls (& guys) best friend and is

Skin Preparation Tips for Brides;

Getting your skin in tip-top shape for your big day is super important, not only for how you are going to look, but also for your confidence and so too for how you feel on the day!
The photographs taken, on what hopefully will be one of the happiest days of your life, will be with you for years after and you want to look your best from the inside-out so you can look at the pictures 50 years from now and still feel chuffed about how beautiful you looked on the day!

Here are a few tips to help you prepare your skin on the run-up to your wedding day....
