Mobile make-up artist in the comfort of your home

I have been working in the beauty industry for over 25 years and I still love it. Originally I started out as a beauty therapist where I trained in Dun Laoghaire Senior College and from there I started working in Beauty salons. I then went to work with Coiffure Transocean Cruise Ships which was a wonderful experience. When I came home I started working with cosmetics where I found my calling. I loved make up and glamour and being part of this world. I worked for Dior for eight years, five in store and three on the road as a make-up trainer/artist. I also worked with Clinique and Shiseido. Make-up is ever evolving so I am always updating my training.

I set up About Face Make-up in 2006 after I had my 2nd child. I love all the excitement of weddings and photoshoots and making sure everyone is happy. I still wanted to work and be around for my 2 young kids at the time. I found there was a niche in the market to work with brides in the comfort of their own home on the morning of the wedding. “Hiring a professional makeup artist reduces the stress of getting glammed up and adds a little touch of luxury and pampering to your big day”. I heard this quote once and I think it is so true. Its it a real privilege for me to be involved in a wedding and not only is it my job to look after everyone well but also in a timely manner as this is the foundation for the whole day.

The last couple of years have been a challenge for anyone in the beauty business but we are all COVID ready and looking forward to getting back to work. I recently did a photo shoot and a stage makeup for Helen Hancock, Soprano and it was great to be back. I forgot how much I missed it. I have included some examples of my work here. I hope you like what you see. I look forward to hearing from you.
