I am always inspired by the fantastic work of other make-up artists from home and abroad. I have decided to have a weekly feature on the blog where I share some of my favourite make-up that I have seen from the world wide web.

The first in this new series is a post dedicated to Pat McGrath and her recent work in Vogue Italia which was photographed by Steven Meisel. She created a classic look that has been described as “one of the most iconic images of our generation!” Giving the actress Fei Fei Sun a glamerous but modern starlet look.

I adore this flicked block coloured eyeliner with an exotic coloured raspberry red lip. Her cheek bones are well defined with sculpting. The face is kept clean and matt with no blusher or shimmer.
What do you think, do you love this look? Who inspires you? Have you seen any images you would like to share with me?
Lots of love,

This is a fashion film that I was involved with nearly a year ago now. It was all shot on green screen and superimposed onto a cityscape. The idea behind it was that it was a fashionable girl who is reborn as an angel.

This post is long overdue, but I guess, better late than never!
I attended the Irish fashion Awards 2011 a couple of weeks ago to celebrate the best of Irish Talent in the Fashion Industry. It was a great night, I was greeted with complimentary West Coast Coolers on arrival and there were some nibbles making the rounds too.
Everybody made an effort to look the part and there were beautiful dresses, coifed tresses and lovely lashes and lips on display.
I got the opportunity to speak with Faye at the end of the awards. She is a truly lovely person, really warm and spoke to many people there and patiently posed in countless photographs. I asked her what the key to her success was and she said she thinks that it is because she is passionate about what she does and enjoys it.
Here is some information from her blog on why she came up with the awards:
“Perhaps my eyes are only half open, but in most of my time working between Paris, London and elsewhere, I seem to be only one of a small handful of Irish in fashion. Of course, there is no doubt that there are some amazing Irish involved in fashion abroad. But in my mind there should be so much more. Arts and culture are perhaps our greatest strength as a nation. Being creative is in our culture. For example, disproportionately more of our authors are known the world over as compared to perhaps any other nation. But that too should be the case for Irish designers, stylists, photographers and all those involved in fashion.
Admittedly, as a moderately successful 23 year old model, I can’t do very much, but at the very least I can do a little. These awards are my little contribution to fashion in Ireland, creating another window onto Ireland to share with the world. I feel it’s important to reach back to Ireland and try to connect my peers into the world I’ve stepped into. The many incredible international judges we’ll be announcing over the coming weeks are very much part of this effort. It’s only year one, but hopefully it’s the start of something that will grow in the years to come.”
A big congratulations to Zoe Clark for winning Make-up Artist of the Year! I got to assist her eleven years ago when I was only sixteen! (I know I shouldn’t be giving my age away!)

I did a photoshoot a couple of weeks ago in Shebeen Chic with the wonderful girls from Three-o-Troupe. Here are some behind the scenes photos.

Did this photoshoot recently for Aliquo Boutique’s Autumn/Winter collection of Jewellery for The Loft in the Powerscourt Centre. The designer is Alice Moyon and she creates feminine, delicate, pretty pieces of art. I particularly love the drop necklace with the bow and gorgeous hand painted black bead. The brief for make-up was something really simple and refined that reflected the autumn/winter feel of the shoot. We decided to keep the palette pale, shiny and opalescent, which complimented the black, antique gold and blue colours of the jewellery beautifully.
