And then came #Glowup IRELAND on RTE2! 8 episodes..

From the orignal GLOW UP ON BBC… IRELAND did their own version. Who would have thought that slowly coming out of Covid, this project would show up on my doorstep! I work all over the world and for the first time, this was my opportunity of working with a Top Class Irish Production.

Furthermore this was the 1st time where I would leave my « backstage » to be in front of the camera.

3 strong women, 3 generations … With my wonderful fellow judge Emma O’Bryne and fantastic presenter Maura Higginns, We embarked on this adventure, with

the first generation of Irish Glowup competitors; 10 incredibly talented young people.

Spreading the magic of makeup artistry has been my entire career. GLOWUP IRELAND was an honor and a privilege to be part of.

Welcome to the world of Makeup Magic!

Work with the best, in order to become your best ...

Today, I am excited to be involved in developing Master classes on line, and in person, consulting with Brands, and talking with the actors of the makeup and cosmetic industry at large.

I am an Irish Make up artist growing up between France, the United States and Ireland. I am based now between Ireland and Paris. I work and travel worldwide at the heart of the Fashion world in make up and cosmetics for the last 25 years, in all its different areas.

I have acquired a deep experience at the highest levels; Editorial, Celebrity events, Commercials, Fashion and Beauty campaigns (photographic and film), working with renowned models, photographers, directors and celebrities. (Listed below)

I also work with Pat Mc Grath; the most celebrated make up artist of our time, for the last 20 years. Through working together in the Fashion shows worldwide each season, we research the make up looks for the Catwalks of the top Brands in the Fashion world. Doing an average of 80 shows per year, this also includes working for the events surrounding diverse launches and ensuing campaigns for these brands around the world.

My experience, has allowed me to be at the source of creating many of the new trends in the makeup industry, and contribute to developing and training one of the most talented and polyvalent makeup teams in the industry.

At the beginning of my career, I was given wonderful advice that I share and live by to this day, “Work with the best, in order to become your best”.


Since 2015, I collaborate in the development, campaigns, and launch of Pat Mc Grath’s iconic brand Pat Mc Grath Labs, with the most recent opening in may 2019 Selfridges London.
