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!

You kept me and the girls so calm and chilled throughout the morning! It was so enjoyable, I’d love to do it all again!” 💕

L A V E N D E R : 💜 My little obsession continues. I first planted a few Lavender plants over lockdown last year and hadn’t a clue what I was doing. I had no idea you needed to prune them to stop them going woody and I just left them to do their thing. However, this year I did a little research and found a great Instagram account @anya_thegarden_fairy who is the Lavender queen so I’ve been watching her videos and getting lots of great tips on how to really make the most of these beautiful plants and help them thrive. Next step is to propagate some and add to my collection!!!

S U N D A Y : Over lockdown I had the time and space to practice yoga again so I began doing online classes with the fabulous @stretchwithgrace. When Grace announced her Stretch, Forage & Feast event I couldn’t wait to sign up. It was the most relaxing and informative day filled with yoga, amazing food, history, fresh air in the most beautiful surroundings and great conversation.

Thank you @stretchwithgrace @larchillarcadiangarden and @wildfoodevents for all your hard work and for having me.

PS: I left my phone locked away for the day so literally only took 3 pictures at the end and it was so nice being totally switched off!!

S H E I L A : 💕 This beauty got married in @trudderlodge last weekend. My first wedding back in one of my favourite venues in over a year and it was such a laidback, fun morning with a brilliant bunch of girls. I got to work with @tracey_lawler_hairdressing17 for the first time. Genuinely lovely and super talented!
