“Every job presents me with a fresh canvas to work with, which is what I love. The most important thing to me is achieving an immaculate finish no matter what the job is.”
Hi I’m Alyson, I’m a professional makeup artist based in South Dublin specialising in Bridal Makeup. I discovered my passion for makeup while I was training as a beauty therapist over a decade ago! I’m one of those annoying people that loves their job! 🙂
My Qualifications & Awards:
I trained alongside leading make up artists Kate Conkey, Zoe Clarke and Louise Constad. I completed a Diploma in Fashion, Theatre & Media Make Up, CIBTAC, CIDESCO and I’ve continued to develop my skills and knowledge within the industry.
Where i’ve worked:
Over the years I’ve worked with Confetti, Social & Personal, The Gloss, Bash, Image brides, The Sunday Times, Woman’s way, U magazine, One fab day, Xpose, Ireland Am, and The today show. Although I really enjoyed this aspect of my job my real love is weddings!
Helping a bride get ready on her wedding day is such a wonderful experience, it’s amazing to be part of this process.
Some of my real brides have featured on beautiful wedding websites One Fab day, Confetti, Image, Weddingsonline and Mrs2be.
Why you should work with me:
Having worked in the bridal industry for 15 years I have worked with hundreds of Brides who all had their own unique styles.
Before your big day I will meet you at your trial where we can discuss your make up styles and ideas. I encourage Brides to bring photos of what makeup they like so I can get an idea of what style she likes. On that day we will discuss all things about your Wedding day.
On the morning of your wedding, keeping calm and lowering the stress levels is so important as well as time keeping! Anyone that knows me will agree I’m a bit of a perfectionist, and I carry this attention to detail over to every Bride I work with.
On your big day, I will travel to where you are getting ready and I will stay with you until you are ready to leave ensuring everyone looks fabulous! If you require a hair stylist, I can highly recommend Dancing with the Stars hairstylist Sian Sharkey! We have a similar style and approach and love working together.
Every Bride is different so if you have a burning question feel free to reach out to me and I would be happy to answer you! Or browse some of my previous bridal photos.
