Makeup is my passion - I love what I do and pride myself on achieving excellent results in a relaxed environment.
I understand that every client is different and tailor my services to meet the specific needs of each and every one of my customers. Over the years, I’ve worked on a one-to-one basis with people from all backgrounds to make them look and feel beautiful on their special occasions. I always take skin-type and face-shape into careful consideration to ensure a perfectly executed finish.
I have 7 years experience working as a makeup artist for MAC Cosmetics as well as being a freelance artist for the past 11 years. I started my career in the beauty industry at the age of 16 and became a beauty therapist before achieving a Diploma in Image Styling for Performance from the London College of Fashion and a Foundation Degree in Media Makeup from Somerset College of Arts and Technology.
As a freelance artist, I’ve really enjoyed working with brides and bridal parties to get them photo-ready for their big day. I’ve taught technical skills to new makeup artists by hosting practical workshops, and even worked within the TV and performance industry on celebrities.
My previous experience has seen my work published in Kerrang Magazine (April 2016), and working for Fosters and Unilad. I have perfected makeup for celebrities to include Annabelle Wallis, Josie Achaval and Malika, all for live events. I have worked back stage at the British Indepenndant Film Awards and alongside the talented photographer Asiko.
London Fashion Week is always a highlight to work at and has seen me work for designer Roksanda (AW17 & SS18), Preen (SS18) & Craig Green (SS18).

Never did full face make before, so didn't know what to expect. Sinead, was punctual, timely and professional. She talked me through each step she was doing and asked for my input to ensure I got what I desired. Couldn't have asked for more in a first time experience. Highly recommended!! More...

Professional, Simple, Modest and down to earth
Has such a fantastic approach to her passion, which has so deservedly become her profession. She made the models feel at ease. They were confident about how my make-up would look in the final pictures. She made sure our vision meet the theme. She gave every model a smile of confidence on what would be some of the models first shoot and for that we will be ever grateful, she made them all a sparkle!

Sinead did a fabulous makeup job on myself and my bridal party for my wedding last May. She made us feel relaxed and at ease throughout the morning. She was also very accommodating with appointments and I was always able to make contact with her when needed. Thanks so much for everything. More...

Thank you Aoife. It was a pleasure being there with you all.
Sinead was polite, professional and incredibly helpful! Me and my bridal party were complete novices when it came to make up, but she made us feel at ease and relaxed.
We had nothing but nice comments from all of my guests regarding our make up. It was the exact neutral, natural wedding make up that I wanted and I couldn't recommend Sinead enough!
Thank you Sinead More...
