Colette Cassidy Make Up has been seen in Irish Tatler, Image, Vip, Hotpress, Sunday Independent, Ireland Am, Irish TV and Tv3 Xpose.
I have been a professional make up artist for over ten years. Having worked for top luxury brands Make Up Forever, Giorgio Armani Cosmetics and Yves Saint Laurent I have received training in the UK and Paris from some of the biggest names in the fashion and beauty industry. I keep up to date with the current trends and I know to achieve flawless make up looks designed for the red carpet.
I have been involved in many aspects of the fashion and beauty industry, having also owned and run a successful make up and beauty salon in Dublin for many years. I have played an important role for many years on special occasions from weddings to photo shoots and black tie balls. I have worked on countless brides throughout Ireland and I have enjoyed been part of their special wedding morning.
My make up style is subtle but eye catching. I like understated make up with focus on a clear glowing complexion and emphasis on the eyes. I like creating soft smokey eyes and I customize the makeup to suit each of my clients. I have the right products and tools to create any look requested.
With a background in Art & Design, and Costume Design I will be able to create a look to suit the clients overall style and personality.
I also have an interest in millinery and hat design, it comes hand in hand as I have been adjusting mother of the brides hats for years! With a background in design and having studied various millinery courses you may see my name come up in connection with hats! That's me! On quiet midweek days when I am not replying to brides or doing make up trials or weddings, you will find me sewing and creating hats while having ten cups of tea!!!
I use my favourite products from various leading brands including Yves Saint Laurent, Smashbox, Mac, Glo Minerals, Mac, Inglot etc. My make up kit is full of essentials from individual lashes to the iconic YSl Touche Eclat.
I work freelance in Dublin, Meath and Kildare. I can call out to your house or chosen venue so you can have your make up done in the comfort of your own home. I also have a private studio space in JH Hair Rathgar, Dublin 6.
