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!

B R I D E S M A I D : A little throwback to one of my @tinakilly_country_house_hotel weddings. It feels like a lifetime since I’ve painted a face. Looking forward to meeting all my summer brides over the coming weeks and getting back in to the swing of things.

S A T U R D A Y : My Saturday’s at this time of the year are usually spent travelling to and from weddings, making up beautiful brides and their bridal parties but not this year (or last). Today I took my first trip to a gorgeous garden centre near us called @jolysgardencentre. They have such a lovely set up, all the plants you could want for both indoor and outdoor and the staff were so helpful. Myself and my 6 year old picked out loads of fabulous bee friendly plants that have really brightened up the garden, some strawberry plants and I treated myself to a few large terracotta pots. I’m by no means an expert gardener, I pretty much Google and pick my mums brains as I go 🙈 but so far I haven’t killed anything this year and I’m really enjoying being outside so much. Today really was a day well spent 👌🏻 #notanad

P R O T E C T : The lovely @alysonsmyth was chatting about sun screen yesterday on her grid and I thought I’d share with you what I’ve been using on my face for a few years. I’ve tried lots of different spf products over the years but I found them either too greasy or sticky and just didn’t sit well under makeup. I wanted something I could use easily and effectively every day. I can’t remember who recommended this @kiehlsuki one or if I just decided to try it myself but I found it perfect for what I wanted. It’s light when applying, doesn’t feel heavy on the skin and makeup goes on perfectly over it. Definitely a staple in my skincare routine. Just don’t watch any Gweneth Paltrow videos on how you should apply it 🙈

S T Y L E : I miss my blazers and jeans and jewellery and basically anything that isn’t leggings and joggers 😭 I miss putting on some nice clothes to go somewhere that isn’t Tesco or for a walk around the block. Loosing myself in Pinterest planning my post lockdown outfits 👌🏻

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 👍🏻
