Who’s style suits you?

Whether you’re looking for a soft glam or a full smokey eye smoulder, choose the makeup artist who’s style speaks to you! One of the first steps you should take is finding your own signature makeup look and seeing which makeup artist best suits your favourite style.

We recommend Paddy McGurgan who has stores in Belfast, Derry and Newry and can accommodate to any makeup style so you’re sure to feel like a star as you strut the aisle…

Book a trial run

The last thing any bride wants on her wedding day is a last-minute makeup disaster! To be sure you’ll love your look, it’s crucial you book a trial run ahead of the wedding. This will give you time to see if this is the right makeup artist for you and will help you figure out exactly what look to go for.

We recommend the reliable Olivia Muldoon in Dungannon who makes brides feel comfortable and confident for their day ahead…
