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!

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!!!

H O M E : My new favourite corner of the house 💕 I’ve been eyeing up lots of chairs over the last few months but as we’re only renting I didn’t want to buy something expensive but I still wanted something comfy and that looked good. I spotted this grey one in the @lidlireland brochure last week for €118 and I’m thrilled with it. My girls are Bee obsessed and I fell in love with this cushion from @marksandspencerireland so I thought it would go perfectly here. The ideal reading/chilling corner 👌🏻

S E L F C A R E : I am a total moisturiser junkie!!! I always have a few different ones on the go for every day use but I have to say the @elizabetharden Green Tea Honey Drops Body Cream is my go to when I want a real pamper. It smells so good and my skin feels incredibly soft after using it. The little honey drops burst as you massage it in and leave your skin feeling fabulous. It’s around €20 and totally worth it for some self care indulgence 💕 I usually pick one up in @theloopdutyfree when I’m flying out but you’ll also find it on @lookfantastic.
