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 K I N C A R E : Santa was given a pretty big hint this year that I’d like this in my stocking. I’ve followed @carolinehirons for a long time and I love her straight talking, no-nonsense approach to skincare and skincare products. I’m not finished it yet but loving every page so far 👍🏻

1 Y E A R : What a difference a year makes. This seems like so long ago when we see where we are right now. Myself and @clairebarryhair had such a lovely morning with Orla and her bridal party. Happy Anniversary 💕

B R E A T H E : Today was definitely a day for getting out and breathing in that fresh air... we’re so lucky to have this on our doorstep. I couldn’t not live by the sea 🌊

6 Y E A R S : Happy Anniversary to these two, Niamh & Anthony from @trudderlodge. Always such a huge supporter of mine, it was a pleasure to work with Niamh for her own wedding day. It’s still one of my favourite venues to work in. If you’re getting married over the next few years you need to check it out. You won’t be disappointed 💕

G R E E N F I N G E R S : Is it just me or has anyone else become a bit obsessed with bringing more greenery inside this year? I spent so much time outdoors and in the garden this summer I feel like I need to be surrounded by more plants now we’re going to be stuck indoors more. I picked this beauty up in Tesco during the week and I just love it 💕 let’s hope I can keep them all alive now 🤞🏻

J O A N N A : A little throwback because, well, because it’s quiet on the wedding front and I’m looking back on all the beautiful brides I’ve had the privilege of working with. Here’s hoping 2021 will be kinder to all you gorgeous couples planning your big day and to all the suppliers and venues struggling at the moment.

N I M A : Here’s a closer look at the set of @nimabrush’s I purchased last week. This is the latest launch called ‘A Taste of Nima’ and it includes 5 brushes. It’s the perfect starter set for any budding makeup artist or even just a beautiful addition to your makeup bag. Super soft, well made and a gorgeous colour. I haven’t used them yet but I already know I’m going to love them 💕 These would make a fab gift for (dare I say it???) Christmas ☺️ if you’re one of those super organised people, which I’m not!!!
