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!

R O I S I N : I was back in @ballybeghouse last weekend for another Roisin and a beautiful bride she was. Such a relaxed morning with her mum and two bridesmaids and check out her stunning dress. ✨ One of my favourite people to work with, @clairebarryhair was on hair duty 👌🏻 and @pairsandpeaches created her magnificent bouquets 🌸

W I N T E R G L O W : It’s that time of year when I have the house full of candles and that warm, soft, flickering light fills the room ✨ one of my favourites is the Lavender + Eucalyptus from @cleanslate.ireland. The packaging pleases the designer in me and the smell is divine. What’s not to love!!

B A L L Y B E G : A little recap of Saturday morning for Roisin’s big day in @ballybeghouse. Thanks so much to @lisar_makeup for your help, beautiful work as always and gorgeous hair by @michelle_conroy_hair. A busy morning meant no footage of the bride herself but I’m looking forward to seeing what @atomcreates captured throughout the day!

R U T H : A beautiful morning spent with a fabulous bunch of ladies. The wet weather certainly didn’t dampen their spirits. My first time working alongside side @caracameronhair and it was an absolute pleasure.
Stunning flowers by @fleurtiquebray 🌸

C A N O P Y : this fabulous new shop in Wicklow is my new little piece of heaven! I spent a gorgeous hour this evening at their customer night browsing all their stunning stock and making my Santa list 🤩. Sarah and Gillian from @lilypad_homeaccessories and @lalli_and_moo came together to open a shop under one roof and that’s where the name Canpoy came from. If you’re in the town I highly recommend a visit, I dare you to try leave without buying something! Thanks for having me ladies x

S K I N : One of the beautiful faces I got to paint this weekend. Cody had the skin of dreams and doesn’t wear a lot of makeup so we kept it soft, creating subtle definition using cream products to give a natural glow and light layers of powder where needed. Beautiful warm tones brought out those fabulous blue eyes.

D R E A M T E A M : It’s no secret I’m a die hard @kiehlsuki fan and these 2 are staples in my night time routine. I always stock up whenever I see @arnottsdublin doing their 20% off, which is a great deal for such fantastic products. I’ve tried so many lotions and creams over the years but with so many choose from and all the promises that come with them you can spend a fortune and be left with so many half used jars and bottles. I can’t afford to be spending my hard earned money on skincare that doesn’t work for me and my skin. I just really love these as a combo so will be sticking with them for the foreseeable. Have you tried them or what’s your favourite Kiehls product?

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.
