"I like to bring the best out of my clients. Makeup shouldn't ever be wearing you -You should be wearing the makeup, feeling and looking your best."

My name is Karen Maher, I am a professional make up artist based in county Kilkenny. My passion & love for all things pretty, creative, sparkly and girly drove me towards my dream career.

My journey as a make up artist began over 8 years ago after I completed my training in the International make up academy. I have a keen eye for colour, and I pride myself in my skillful, beautiful make up applications, which have earned me a very loyal clientele. I always strive for perfection, and depending on your own individual circumstances & needs, I will use a variety of top quality make up products to create the perfect make up result for you.

My Work as a make up artist varies from creating individual & unique make up looks for my beautiful brides & bridal parties, to creating a wide variety of editorial make up looks for photo shoots, magazine shoots & covers etc.
