Hi my name is Agnes Kealy and I'm a bridal makeup artist based in the lovely village of Borris in Co. Carlow. I work mostly in beautiful locations and venues all over Leinster and Munster.

My aim is to make sure that my brides feel and look amazing on their big day. Whether you're after a natural a makeup look or something a little more glam, I will work with my bride to achieve the look that they want. Creating a look that is timeless will ensure you get a gorgeous look that doesn't date. 

I love the buzz of a wedding morning, and I feel it is important that my brides know that I will be there to help settle any nerves on the morning of their wedding by bringing a sense of calmness and fun.

Agnes was fabulous from start to finish. I'm so happy I booked her! She's an absolute professional but also very kind and warm - it was a pleasure to have her with us on the morning of my wedding. She did such a fantastic job on our makeup, and catered to a range of ages and preferred makeups with no hassle whatsoever. We all felt so beautiful, but still like ourselves. I would recommend Agnes to any bride in a heartbeat, she is brilliant!

Agnes is a true professional. Her talent and dedication played a major part on my wedding day. She made me feel a million dollars with her work of magic with her makeup. There were a few tears through out the day and my makeup did not budge! From the email enquiry to the final touches on the day she made me feel like I was the only bride she ever was dealing with, Agnes was always so quick to respond and nothing was ever was a big ask or a silly question for her! Agnes's ability to work with the hairstylist, videographer and photographer on the day was seamless. She brought the fun to the morning prep! I am just waiting for the next occasion that I can use an excuse to get my makeup done with Agnes again! I would HIGHLY recommend Agnes to all the brides to be currently looking for a makeup artist.
Response from Agnes Kealy Makeup
Rhonda thank you so much for your very kind words. It was a great morning. I had so much fun with you and the ladies. Again thank you for having me as your makeup artist and I really feel that the look you went for was perfect in every way. It was soft, glamorous and with a little bit of sparkle. I loved being a part of your big day. Hope to see you again soon. xxx

Agnes did my make up for my wedding in October and she was absolutely amazing! From the trial to the day itself, she was so responsive. She is professional and such a lovely lady! She was a stones throw away from my venue in Borris which was a plus. Me and my bridesmaids make up was absolutely flawless on the day and I would recommend her to anyone.

Agnes is unbelievably talented at her job. From first communication, to trial and then the wedding morning, she was just so amazing and positive and makes you feel so at ease. She created beautiful natural looks for us which lasted all day and night, even through the mini heatwave we had! I couldn?t recommend her enough

I booked Agnes well in advance of my wedding after hearing plenty of positive things by word of mouth. From the trial to the wedding day Agnes was so friendly, professional and calming it made for a wonderful experience. She is so talented and I was over the moon with my make up, it was exactly what I wanted! I had a bit of a bruise under my eye and she even checked in with me during that week to assure me she had the right concealer! My bridesmaids all loved her too and we had great craic that morning. She is a perfectionist and I can't reccommend her highly enough!!

Hi Jenny

Ah thanks so much. It was such a fun morning. You and all the girls were just fabulous. I loved how your makeup turned out on the day. It was glam but not too much. MACs faux lipstick was the perfect lippy for the day. ??

We just had our wedding and I cannot recommend Agnes Kealy enough. She was a joy to work with, so fun on the day, and after we had an hour delay due to family car troubles we still got out on time, even after having to do 6 people! I never wanted to take my makeup off, and I just felt so beautiful on the day. She helped pick out specific lipsticks for my wedding party, which I then gave as gifts. I would happily work with Agnes again!
Response from Agnes Kealy Makeup
Hi Shauna,
What a morning in Grouse lodge. It was just fabulous.
So I always tell my brides that sometimes things happen, but to stay calm as everything will work out, and it did. I really admired you for that reason. You were so relaxed and didn't let a little hiccup bother you in the slightest.
It was a fairy tale location with a dress to match. Your gown was so whimsical and your flowers complimented this. As for the makeup, I love using the light pink tones on you. It kept your makeup soft and natural which is exactly what you wanted.
Thank you so much again for having me as your makeup artist. I thoroughly enjoyed the morning. Hopefully our paths will cross again in the future. Until then, best wishes. Agnes xxx

Agnes did make up for my three bridesmaids and I on Friday 19th of May 2023 and she was absolutely amazing. From day one she was so great to deal with. She understood exactly the look we wanted and was a lovely, calm presence on the morning of the wedding. An utter professional and very talented make up artist but also a lovely person. I wouldn't hesitate for a minte to recommend Agnes to anyone looking for a make up artist for their big day.
Response from Agnes Kealy Makeup
Ah Grace it was my pleasure. It was such a fab morning and your bridesmaids were stunning too. Thank you also for the stunning flowers you set me. You are too generous. I was delighted with the way the makeup turned out on the day. You epitomised old Hollywood glamour. Stunning. The red lip complimented your hair and your dress just perfectly. I still cant get over the bridesmaids reaction to seeing their makeup, especially your sister. It was such a compliment and it means so much to me as an artist to get a reaction like that. Hopefully I will see you again in the not so far future. Best wishes to you all. Agnes xxx

Agnes done the make up for our wedding and she was absolutely amazing. She is so great to deal with, so helpful and had suggestions for bridal make up when I didn?t really know what I was looking for. We done a trial a few weeks before the wedding and Agnes worked with my very vague idea and it was perfect. The bridesmaids all loved their make up, and my mam was delighted too she usually wouldn?t wear make up so she is hard to please. I highly recommend Agnes and she?s such a lovely person too which makes the whole experience better!
Response from Agnes Kealy Makeup
Aoife, thank you so much for the review and a huge thank you for choosing me as your makeup artist. It was a great morning in the Newpark. I had so much fun and great chats with all the girls. I loved the makeup that we achieved on the day. It turned out better than I had hoped. Wishing you both the very best for the future. Agnes xx

Agnes came to our rescue at the very last minute and saved the day !! I didn?t have a trial with Agnes so she had a job on her hands but she was absolutely out of this world and myself and the wedding party could not have been happier! One of my bridesmaids had even booked her for her own wedding since???? my Mam is in her 60?s and Agnes did such a fabulous job on her too! Can?t thank her enough and would highly reccomend. Extremely professional and a very calm person to have around on the morning of a wedding !
Response from Agnes Kealy Makeup
Fiona it was my pleasure to be your makeup artist for your wedding day. I am just so happy that i was free on the day and able to take over the reigns from your other makeup artist. It was always going to be an easy job for me with a face like yours. You look amazing as did all the girls. Thank you so much for keeping me high on coffee for the morning and also for sending me on all the photos. I really appreciate it. I'm really looking forward to seeing you all again later in the year. Ill see you then xxx

Agnes was absolutely amazing on the day of our wedding - Agnes did makeup on myself, bridesmaids, sister in law, and my mum and everyone was super happy with their glam! The make up stayed on so well throughout the day and night. Agnes was super helpful in the lead up to the wedding from the trial to answering questions about products, skincare etc, in the lead up. Agnes had a lovely presence on the day and I would highly recommend Agnes for your wedding!!
Response from Agnes Kealy Makeup
HI Laura,
Well what can I say only WOW! You looked gorgeous. I've had so many brides to be asking if I could do their makeup similar to yours. The red lip was perfect. It complimented your dress and amazing flowers perfectly. Thank you so much for sending me on the up close photos for my website, i really appreciate it. I am so glad that the makeup lasted for the day and night. The look we went for in the end was perfect, a little drama, yet still soft enough to be bridal. Thanks again , Agnes xxx

It was an honour to be part of your big day. Thank you so much for choosing me as your makeup artist. You were so relaxed from start to finish. I loved how the makeup turned out in the end. It was fresh and your skin looked like glass. It was just perfect. I am delighted that we decided to go with the faux lipstick and Charlotte Tilbury gloss in the end. You needed that little bit of colour to finish off the entire look. Thank you so much for the review. I really appreciate it. Oh and thank you also for the photos. Chat to you soon, Agnes xxx

Agnes was amazing. From the moment we met up to my big day she was so supportive in helping me find the right look. Instead say that my make up was stunning on the day of my wedding. It was exactly what I imagined. Agnes was so professional and really helped me calm the nerves. She did my bridesmaids make up and the mothers and we all looked beautiful. The make up lasted the entire day. I would highly recommend Agnes.

Agnes was a dream to deal with, she was MUA for myself, my mother, 3 bridesmaids & my friend. What I loved is that unlike some MUAs she has more that 1 or 2 looks. It wasn?t like we were all copy & paste versions of the same look, she gave us all individual looks. I have her booked for another wedding I am attending as a guest & I would highly recommend any bride to consider her

Agnes was absolutely lovely. She was so friendly but professional and my makeup was amazing! I looked like me but on a really good day. The makeup she did for my family was also brilliant. My sister asked for a more dramatic look and she was more than able to provide it.
Response from Agnes Kealy Makeup
Hi Mary, what a fantastic morning in the Dolmen Hotel. You looked amazing as did your bridesmaids. Ill never forget the heat that day. Thank god for your handheld fans; they were badly needed. I'm delighted that the makeup lasted all day, especially in that heat. Makeup setting spray is a life saver. It was so lovely to see you all and hopefully ill see you again in the future. XXX

Couldn't have picked a better makeup artist for my wedding than Agnes, she is amazing!
So sweet & funny - I knew immediately after my trial that I wanted her for my big day.
She listened super carefully during my trial, asked for feedback and we worked together to create the perfect look I was looking for.
Not only did the makeup look great in pictures but it lasted for the entire day and night. The eyelashes even lasted for days!
Highly, highly recommend Agnes for weddings, special events, parties, debs etc.

Agnes is literally the best makeup artist. After booking her for my makeup as a wedding guest, I booked her straight away for my own wedding. My makeup on wedding day was amazing, I never felt so beautiful my whole life. It didn't budge on myself or the girls and was truly flawless. Agnes is so relaxing to be around and brought great vibes to the preparation on the morning . Shes also an incredibly kind and caring person. We got so many compliments about the makeup. Agnes is a perfectionist who really knows how to do exactly what you ask for. Ive become a regular client due to how great she is. Highly recommend her ????

I cannot recommend Agnes highly enough, not only is she an amazing make up artist, she is also such a lovely person. I don't ever really wear make up and I like my make up to look as natural as possible, she really took that on board and listened to me, and I was absolutely delighted with the amazing job she did. She was a joy to have around on the morning of the wedding,a lovely person and an exceptional make up artist.

Agnes is incredibly talented as a make up artist and if you are looking for someone that has the ability to make you feel like she has a magic wand she is your artist. She did the make up for 4 of us the day of my wedding, including my mother and we couldn't have been happier. She took her time and made sure everything was done to the finest detail, she made our makeup and skin look flawless. I would highly recommend Agnes, I can guarantee you won't regret it.
