Makeup Artist




Galway based Makeup Artist,
Any Style Makeup for Any Occasion.


Hello and welcome to my website!
My name is Siobhán McDonnell, I am a professional freelance Makeup Artist based in and around Galway City & County but freely travel throughout the West of Ireland.
I have over 10 years of experience within the makeup industry with half of that time spent as a MAC Cosmetics Employee (with over 5 years in-house training from the company). 

Having started organically as a self taught makeup artist while in art college, I later went on to train at the Galway School of Makeup Artistry achieving highest ITEC results and qualifying as an internationally recognised makeup artist. Afterwards I worked as resident makeup artist in a makeup boutique before moving to London where I spent a year working for Screenface, London's premium resource for professional makeup, beauty & special effects supplies.
My 5+ years journey working with MAC Cosmetics began at the MAC Pro Store in Soho, London in 2009 and after returning home to Galway I continued my employment with the brand in Brown Thomas. Throughout my time with MAC I received extensive and ongoing training as well as achieving the highest level of certification as retail artist within the company. The skills and experience I acquired over those 10+ years helped me to grow the confidence I needed to go out on my own and I have been working as a successful freelance makeup artist since the beginning of 2015.
Since that time I have specialised in wedding makeup and am also available for all other makeup jobs including occasional makeups, makeup lessons, photoshoots and fashion shows, etc. 
In the past year alone I have worked closely with brands such as Shiseido, Smashbox and IsaDora, having hosted makeup events throughout the country. I have also held makeup masterclasses in Galway and Mayo which allows me to share my passion and expertise with other makeup enthusiasts and makeup artists and I hope to continue doing so in the future.

I also run the popular blog & youtube beauty channel; LetzMakeup.
