One of the top questions I get is ” Can you recommend any makeup artists”? I have put together a list of my top favourite MUAs I have worked with in the past, whom I think is incredible and natural. You won’t feel like you are caked in makeup. I have seen these girls at work and they are fantastic at what they do. If you were to choose any of these ladies you will have a lovely experience. Believe me, I know what it’s like to get your make up done, then wanting to cry once you have seen yourself afterward. I remember having to wipe a lot of mine of after a wedding I was attending some years back. I didn’t look like myself, I was caked in makeup and felt like I was wearing another outfit, but on my face. I certainly don’t want this for anyone, let alone a bride on her wedding day.
I also recommend you book in for a trial. So that way you can figure out exactly what it is you want on your day.
Tippy Logronio is a published freelance makeup artist based in Belfast but covers Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland. Tippy also travels all over for destination weddings and elopements. Tippy specialises in beauty, editorial, and natural bridal makeup. She loves nothing more than to make her brides feel beautiful and confident but still looking like themselves – only on a good day! Her favorite look is the “barely there” look and believes skin should still look like skin. I am inclined to agree.

Another amazing makeup artist based in Northern Ireland, is Jennifer Ireland. Jennifers career in make-up began initially as just a light-hearted extension of learning after finishing my degree to blow off some steam before getting a “real job”. Very quickly I realised how much I loved the instant gratification of seeing a look come together, of chatting to someone and seeing how a little bit of make-up made them feel, yet still holding a brush, and working with colours and textures to create.
Her style is very much on the natural end of the spectrum. She prefers skin to look real, healthy, and supple. Eyes and lips to be enhanced but “undone”, and overall, for a woman to look like herself. A big yes to this! Every woman wants to feel beautiful on their wedding day and feel like their make up is “undone”

“I’m all about making you look like you, but on a really really good day!” Heather
Heather is both a Hair and makeup artist. Before becoming a full-time mua and hairstylist, Heather traveled the world as cabin crew with (the worlds most glamorous airline) Virgin Atlantic. It was here she realised her makeup potential after many colleagues began to ask her to do their hair and makeup for down route activities and flights home. Heather favoured a vintage-inspired look, with pin curls, victory rolls and of course a red lip which went very well with the airlines iconic red uniform.
