About Orla

Hello, I am a professional Make Up Artist based in North County Dublin and have worked in this wonderful business for over 15 years. During this time I have experienced all aspects of the beauty scene at many levels from retail, product quality, makeup application, teaching and of course my own freelance makeup business. Having started my career in Brown Thomas I quickly developed a strong passion for makeup artistry which led me to follow my dream to be one of the best in the business. My experience has thought me that high end products achieve the best results and consequently I use MAC, Inglot, Estee Lauder and Charlotte Tilbury.

Having completed professional training with LA Academy, specializing in Bridal Makeup, I enjoy working closely with the Bride from our first encounter to understand their personalities and makeup preferences. I always endeavor to achieve a flawless finish and bring a professional attitude to all my clients to complete a look my “Bride to Be” loves and I can be proud of. Wedding makeup should be flawless, long lasting and timeless. On the special day, the bride should look like herself, but at her most beautiful.

My Bridal Clients have brought me to many locations around Dublin and the surrounding counties such as Meath, Kildare, Louth and Wicklow to mention a few. However, many of my regular clients prefer to visit the “One2One” Makeup Studio located in Donabate. The success of “One2One” has continued to grow since I first started in 2011 and recently took on a whole new dimension when I teamed up with Noreen, an extremely talented and creative Hair Stylist. Our one stop service has proved to be very popular with our Brides and regular clientele.

 

About Noreen

I’m a professional hairstylist based in North County Dublin and have worked as a hairstylist for over 26 year’s. In that time I’ve worked in some fantastic salons including Steve n Shane and Ann Harts getting the opportunity to work with some of the best hair stylists in the country. I also enjoyed entering all the L’Oreal hair competitions where I truly fell in love with the whole art and creative side of hairdressing. I subsequently moved to LA Hair Salon as assistant manager specialising in Bridal Hair.

I am always confident and happy to take charge of Bridal parties. To be part of a Bride’s special day is honestly a huge privilege, I just love the whole Art of up styling, to create a look that makes the Bride feel extra special, relaxed and comfortable is a fantastic feeling. Working as a freelance stylist has given me the opportunity to travel all over Dublin and the surrounding counties and getting to attend some fantastic venues.

While working freelance I’ve also had the pleasure to meet and partner up with a wonderful makeup artist, Orla from One2One Makeup, which has been a great success for both of us. Providing both hair and makeup to our Bride’s and other regular clients is a great service, whether it’s to the client’s home, a venue or our studio in Donabate has proved very popular.
