Lydia Devlin

Dublin, Ireland


hi there,
I graduated from LA college of creative arts in April. I have done a few jobs with Andrea Roche and my college since. I have also done some charity work for Irish Cancer society. I love fashion make up and SFX. I keep an make up page on Facebook and regularly update it with reviews of my favourite products or work I have been doing.
I have been published on which was a great accomplishment for me as I also studied journalism so I got a chance to mix the two.
