Makeup for me is not about masking my clients features. I want to enhance the beauty that’s already there. I want to make them feel the most beautiful, confident version of themselves.

Hi! I’m Clare. A professional, freelance makeup artist living in the beautiful County Wicklow. I specialise in bridal and occasion makeup and I’m passionate about all things makeup, beauty and style.

I won Best Makeup Artist in the Mrs2Be Brides Choice Awards in 2014 and was also a finalist in 2016 and 2017.

If you would like more information on my bridal or occasion packages you can get in touch through the contact form or drop me an email on clare@clarehogan.ie I’d be delighted to hear from you!

Why not come say hi on Instagram and Facebook too!

S U N D A Y : We had the best morning soaking up the sun and watching the birds and wildlife at the East Coast Nature Reserve in Newcastle where members of the Birdwatch Ireland team held a Hide & Seek open day. We got to explore the reserve, make apple bird feeders and paper bird kites! Well worth a visit any time of the year and the kids loved it!

H Y D R A T E : Makeup is only as good as the skin it sits on and any makeup artist will tell you that preparation is key when it comes to your makeup looking well. I started using the @vichylaboratoires Mineral 89 Daily Booster on my clients about 6 months ago and have been really impressed. It works so well on all skin types, every client comments on how soothing and hydrating it feels on the skin and a little goes a long way. Definitely one that will be in my kit for the foreseeable 👌🏻

A O I F E : 💕 The definition of a blushing bride. This @thelittlebaker.ie was a dream to work with and we had such a lovely morning. @lisa_molloy_hair_makeup was responsible for her gorgeous hair and it was so good to catch-up with the brilliant @davidmcclellandphotography who was busy snapping away. Can’t wait to see what magic he captured 📸

J O A N : My last bride of 2021 💕 not even a fallen tree blocking the road and relocation of the wedding prep could ruffle this beauties feathers. A fun filled morning with a gorgeous bunch of girls and the perfect way to end the year!

Congratulations to all you newly engaged couples. I’ll be replying to all emails over the next few days and then I’ll be in touch with my 2022 brides to start planning your trials.

Just a reminder I only take bookings through email, clare@clarehogan.ie, it’s just impossible to keep track through any social platforms.
