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!

N I A M H : Last Friday in @trudderlodge was a wet one, but it certainly didn’t dampen the spirits of this chilled bride and her gorgeous friends and family. Beautiful pops of colour in the flowers by @austenflowers, the flower girl’s converse, Niamh’s fabulous @nickihoynecollection shoes 💕 and bridesmaid Zara’s blue dress was her ‘something blue’ 💙

S U M M E R : A love affair that started during lockdown and has become a bit of an obsession… I’ve been slowly adding to my collection of plants and flowers and the results are so worth it 🥰 it takes time and work keeping it maintained but no better excuse to get out in the fresh air and switch off 👌🏻

A blissful walk in the gorgeous Belmount Demense in Greystones today. After so much rain and cold temperatures over the last month it finally felt like summer is just around the corner and I’m so ready for it 😎☀️

B A S E : I’ve always been a minimalist base lover, I just don’t like layers and layers of heavy makeup and over the last 3 years I’ve become more accustomed to very little makeup. However I do like to use some strategically placed product to brighten and even my skin and these 3 products have been my go to for the last few months…

1. @charlottetilbury Wonder Glow:
I’ve been using this since it launched and I absolutely love I. I use it on its own, under foundation or mixed with my foundation for a more sheer finish. A staple in my makeup bag for the foreseeable 💕

2. @narsissist Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser:
Such a lovely base, buildable but light and has a gorgeous finish ✨

3. @ayumakeupireland Instant Under Eye Concealer:
I picked this up at Christmas after seeing lots of great reviews and it didn’t disappoint. A gorgeous creamy texture that blends really nicely and I use it all over, not just under the eyes. Anywhere that needs a little correction. Will definitely be picking up another shade for the summer months 👌🏻

H O L L Y W O O D ✨ E Y E S :

My most used eyeshadow palette at the moment is the @charlottetilbury Hollywood Flawless Eyes Filter. This is the ‘Star Aura’ quad and the shades are so wearable and pretty. Softer shades for day time or a more subtle eye and the darker shade is perfect for adding some drama and depth. Unfortunately these are currently out of stock but hopefully will be restocked 🤞🏻

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!
