Aileen's style of makeup is radiant and natural, the most beautiful version of yourself. Have a look at her photos, the work speaks for itself. Aileen's makeup is flawless, but then again what else would you expect on your wedding day?

 The photos only reveal part of Aileen's skill-set though. As an artist her desire and purpose is to fill you with emotion when you see how beautiful you are, but also she wants to make your wedding morning as pleasant as possible. She is well known for the calming effect she brings with her. She is unobtrusive and yet everpresent. She will be with you until you are ready to walk down the aisle and you will know that you are beautiful. She will organise a trial with you, where together you can create your look and spend the time to ensure you look amazing and feel confident on your very special day.

 Working from the midlands (Athlone), Aileen is 10 years in the makeup business and has enhanced her own natural talent by completing the CIBTAC Diploma in Fashion and Photography Makeup, followed by several master training courses with leading makeup artist Zoe Clark. Aileen continues to work with Zoe, adding such skills as Air Brush to her repertoire.

Hi this was our third attempt at our wedding ???????due to Covid. Aileen stuck with me through it all and constantly reassured me she would make herself available! She was absolutely amazing ???? and her work is so professional and she listens to you 100% and know what suits you. She uses only too of the range products and she is a super girl to deal with. My make up was amazing and I can’t thank her enough and would highly highly recommend her. Dolores

Aileen was a pleasure to have on my wedding morning. She has a lovely calm way about her. My mam never wears makeup & she listened to what she wanted & it turned out beautiful. My makeup didn't move the whole day despite dancing away on the dance floor! Highly recommend Aileen.

Hi Claire - thank you so much for your lovely words! It was such a pleasure to be part of your special day. Your Mum was fab - really enjoyed the chat with her and with minimal makeup she looked stunning. Sounds like you had the best celebration! Aileen xxx

I had originally booked Aileen to do wedding makeup for myself, my mum and my bridal party. With covid restrictions in place I went ahead without my bridal party on Dec 4th 2020. Aileen was so flexible with two date changes and was so accommodating even though it was just make up for my mum and I in the end. I couldn't have a makeup trial because of restrictions but I had full faith in Aileen to make me look beautiful on the day. As I thought I had no reason to worry. She took her time with me to make sure I was happy with every stage of 'the look' and my mum who never wears makeup and was terrified about getting it done felt fabulous as she looked like a stunning version of herself. My makeup was so natural looking and it lasted all day! I was so happy with it. I would recommend Aileen to anyone who need make-up done for a wedding or special occasion. Will definitely call on her again in future.

As soon as I came across Aileen I knew I wanted her to create my bridal look. I am living in Australia and Aileen made communication very easy and she was very professional which put my mind at ease being so far away. For my bridal makeup I didn't want natural but soft glam, Aileen's portfolio showed she was great at both and she did not disappoint on the day. I loved my makeup and my bridesmaid's makeup we all felt and looked amazing. Also on the morning of the wedding Aileen was a calming presence and was lovely to have her there with us.
Response from Aileen Duffy Makeup Artist
Thanks, Nicole - it was a pleasure dealing with you from start to finish. Communication was super always and I was delighted when we met at the trial and also that you enjoyed your stay in Athlone! I loved your makeup on the day - you looked absolutely stunning! Aileen xxxxx

Aileen helped create such a special morning for me and my bridal party - what a truly memorable experience. Aileen's professionalism, creativity and passion is unrivalled, she played a central role in the wedding day preparations for myself, my mother and 2 sisters. Aileen kept us all relaxed, upbeat and the end result was fantastic. Her knowledge of products and listening to our styles/tastes for a truly unforgettable day meant so much to all of us. Would definitely recommend Aileen!

I would highly recommend Aileen to anyone looking for a make up artist. I first met Aileen in 2014 when I was bridesmaid for my brother and she was our make up artist. When I got engaged, I knew immediately that I wanted Aileen to do the make up for my wedding day. She is an absolute dream to deal with. She made me feel very much at ease which was very important to me as I never wear make up. I wanted a very natural look, that would last throughout the day and that's exactly what Aileen delivered. I had 3 bridesmaids and they were all singing Aileen's praises from the day we had the trial. Thank you so much Aileen for everything and for being a part of my wedding day!

Working with Aileen was amazing. I was nervous about booking vendors because I was planning my wedding from my home in the USA, but Aileen was so responsive to my emails. During my trial, she made sure I felt comfortable with all the options we selected and I knew I wouldn't have to worry on my wedding day. I wanted a natural look that enhanced my eyes and she delivered! I looked beautiful and my makeup stayed on the whole day. Thank you!
Response from Aileen Duffy Makeup Artist
Thanks Emily! It was so lovely to meet you and working with you was just a pleasure. I know we only met days before the wedding so thank you for putting your trust in me... I loved doing your makeup and can't wait to see your professional photos. Hope you loved your trip to Ireland xxxx

I can't speak highly enough about Aileen. She was my bridal make-up artist in June of this year and an absolute pleasure to work with in the run-up and on the big day itself. I knew after I had the trial that it was one wedding planning item I never had to revisit or focus on again which was a great relief during those v.busy last couple of months. The style of make-up for all the party - bride, mother of bride, sister, 3 bridesmaids and junior bridesmaid was just fabulous & it never felt like there was any rushing between ladies. I want to especially praise her on her manner and ability to make people feel at ease. She was just fantastic with our beautiful junior bridesmaid - knowing the age-appropriate level of make-up to apply and how to make her feel extra special. Thanks for everything Aileen!

Aileen was just an absolute pleasure to deal with. I’m so glad Aileen was my makeup artist for my wedding on 5th May 2018. Aileen just put us all at ease on the morning of the wedding and created looks to suit my mum, bridesmaids and myself that complimented our skin tone, dresses and flowers. Aileen put thought into every look and kept checking in with all of us to ensure we all loved our makeup. The makeup stayed perfect all night! I really appreciated the way Aileen stayed right until I was walking out the door to head to the church, constantly doing touch ups and even fixing my hair for some last minute photos! She is such a talented makeup artist and genuine lovely person and I’d have no hesitation in recommending Aileen Duffy Makeup. Thanks so much Aileen from Rachel & Andrew

Thank you Aileen for the fantastic make up job you did for my wedding day. From meeting you during the trial right up to the morning of my wedding was an absolute pleasure. My make-up was natural looking, comfortable to wear for the day and I got so many compliments from my guests. You made myself, my sisters and Mam feel very relaxed on the morning of the wedding and it was a pleasure to have you part of my wedding morning preparation. All the bridal party were very happy with their make-up for the day. I will be recommending you for future friend’s weddings and I can’t wait to get my make-up done by yourself for the next occasion. Thanks again, Ciara

As a rule I don't wear a lot of make up so the thought of choosing a make up artist for my wedding was one of the most stressful parts of the planning. I had trials with three different make up artists with Aileen being the last trial. And even as she was talking and listening to me while doing my make up I knew that I was going to be asking to Aileen to do my make up that Sept. She listened to everything that I said in terms of what I did and didn’t like but what I also love is that Aileen made suggestions for things for me to try and if I didn’t like them then fine (false eyelashes are not me!) but if they did then great! Aileen is friendly and extremely professional. At the venue itself it was completely stress free chatting to my Mum and my sister while Aileen was working. And you have no idea how much we appreciated the last minute help out to my Mum (saved my Dad getting a stern giving out too :) ) As for me, I can't get over how I felt as if I had no makeup on - I loved the look you gave me; it was exactly what I wanted to go with my dress (which I loved wearing!). We had a wonderful day and thank you again for helping to make me feel beautiful!

Aileen did the makeup for me, my mum and my sister on my wedding day in July 2017. I can't say enough good things about Aileen and her talent. I don't often get my makeup done and usually go for quite a natural look. Aileen took this on board and listened to my concerns (I had a bad experience with a different makeup artist in the past). I absolutley loved my makeup on my wedding day and I felt like a million dollars! Aileen really made me look my best. This was down to Aileen's talent and her warm nature. I would highly recommend Aileen for bridal makeup.

Myself and my bridesmaids had such a lovely experience with Aileen the morning of my wedding. It suited us to attend the salon rather than have Aileen come to my house (which she would have been more than happy to do). It is such a lovely modern spacious setting with lots of natural light. Aileen is very knowledgeable in her position and is happy to share tips on skincare and the make up or products she uses (this was through email, my trial and on the day). She has a very calming nature and I felt really relaxed, as did my 3 bridesmaids. From the minute we got there to when leaving she did not stop! I love a natural look and I was so happy with my make up on the day, it lasted right though to the late hours! My bridesmaids looked beautiful aswell! The subtle pops of colour from eyeshadow to blusher and lipstick really came through in the photographs too, which is lovely to see. I love seeing her work through social media on other brides as I know they would have been as happy as I was. I can't wait to have an opportunity to have my make up done again with Aileen.

Aileen was a true professional and a total joy to be around. From the trial and all the interactions leading up to the big day, I felt she knew exactly what I wanted. She provided an excellent, friendly and efficient service, her relaxed manner put everyone at ease, we all even picked up a few hints and tricks! She is a knowledgeable artist, using amazing products and delivers a top class application of make up which lasted the whole day and through the dancing to the small hours, I rarely touched my makeup up through the day, it simply wasn't needed... by any of the bridal party! Her attention to detail on the morning was noticed by everyone! All women want to feel beautiful on their wedding day and I can truely say Aileen made me feel so confident and wonderful, my mother and bridesmaids looked stunning also. I would recommend Aileen to any bride, this woman knows her profession and is a seriously talented artist.

Aileen did my make up as well as my Mother's and bridesmaids make up for our wedding last year, she was truly super in so many ways. She is a true expert and gives so much detail to everything.  She was able to give me ideas at the trial and gave recommendations on the style of makeup I should go with which I found so so helpful.  On the morning of the wedding she was at the house on time, and kept on schedule with the make up which was so good as it gave us time for pics and there was no rushing.  She stayed in the house to top up lipstick etc just before we left. She made us all feel so relaxed whilst doing an amazing job.  Myself Mammy and bridesmaids were so happy with our make up, n we didnt have to touch it from that morning till early hours of the following morning. I was so lucky to have Aileen do our makeup and would really recommend her.

I would 100% recommend Aileen , my make up was beautiful and lasted all day , I didn't feel like i was wearing it but the my reflection and photos proved otherwise !! Her Personality and professionalism really made the morning of my wedding so relaxed enjoyable. Aileen also did a amazing job on my Bridesmaid and Mother and mother in Law lending her talent to all skin types and considering our wedding was on a island she had everything she needed and more in that magical kit of hers . So Talented and wonderful to deal with from start to finish any Bride would be lucky to have Aileen as her secret weapon on her big day . . .

Aileen did my makeup for my wedding, as well as my maid-of-honours and my Mam's faces. She was brilliant. She is thorough and careful, making sure she matches your pre-makeup skincare to your needs and then meticulously applying your makeup so that it stays all day. And I mean ALL day. I have never been able to replicate it. I am thinking about asking her if she does lessons! I'd love to get a one-off session with her ;) She is also very intelligent and kind, a true artist.

I cannot recommend Aileen enough. So down to earth easy to talk to. Make up was a very important aspect for me as I have rosacea so I can only use certain products on my face. Aileen really respected this and was so accommodating. I wanted a natural flawless look and that's exactly what I got nothing to overpowering just what I wanted. Aileen had a chat with my bridesmaids listened to their own personal preferences while still keeping them all in theme. Love Aileen's work X

Cannot say enough nice things about Aileen! From my initial make up trial I felt right at ease with her. All of my bridal party looked absolutely gorgeous on the day, and I could not have been happier with my own make up, and it stayed in place all day with no touch ups! She even had a little lip gloss for my flower girl to make her feel special :) Thanks a million Aileen, I could not have been happier or asked for anything more. Anita

I felt like a goddess for the day with my very natural make up and fabulous eyelashes. Aileen managed to see me as i was and turn me into the most brilliant version of myself. we discussed style and what i usually wore prior to the trail and right off the bat she knew what to do. Aileen was a pleasure to work with and really added to an amazing day. I highly recommend everyone to book her imminently for your day.

Aileen is the type of person that you instantly feel at ease with, she is the calm within the storm! I loved the make up look on all of my bridal party, and my look was exactly what I wanted. (Red Lip , Winged Liner!) She is very creative and knows the type of tones and looks that work for each individual. Her make up trials give you the opportunity to try out different styles that will work for each individual bride, even though I promise you will be happy with the first trial Aileen does. She has a fabulous personality and is highly reliable! I just wish I could do it all over again!

Aileen was my makeup artist on my wedding day and I cannot speak highly enough of the job she did for both myself and my bridal party. Aileen was really helpful in advising the different colours and tones that would suit my skin in the run up to the wedding. On the morning of the wedding Aileen arrived at my home bright and early and got to work on my bridal party, ensuring that she spent the allocated time on each of the girls which meant there was ample amont of time to work on my makeup and no one felt rushed. Aileen was extremely professional but also knew exactly how to relax me as the nerves started to set in! She stayed right up until it was time for me to leave for the church adding her final touches and to say I was delighted with the outcome is an understatement. I absolutely loved mine and the bridesmaids makeup, it was so flawless and we all got so many compliments on the day. I would highly recommend Aileen and her service to any furture brides.

Can't thank Aileen enough for providing a make-up lesson in Athlone for my hen party. Aileen was exactly what we were looking for. She used me as the model and gave really useful tips to the rest of the girls as we went along. I was so pleased with the finished result. Aileen then spent time with each of the girls helping them to apply their own make-up. She was very generous with her time and all of her fabulous make-up. After the lesson all we had to do was pop upstairs to change our clothes for the night out. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Aileen for any occasion. She really knows how to get the best out of everyone. Thanks again.

Aileen was a dream to deal with in the run up to and on morning of our wedding. I had a trial prior to the wedding and, as well as doing my make up to perfection, she was full of little tips and advice that I used on the day. She was very calm, accommodating and unobtrusive on the morning of the wedding, and made a beautiful job of my mum, my bridesmaids and my make up. I got lovely comments throughout the day, particularly about my eye make up, she did an amazing job and I could not have been happier with my look. I can't recommend Aileen highly enough, she will work with you to achieve the look you want and making you look the very best you can for your Big Day! Thanks so much again.

I had Aileen Duffy as my make-up artist for my wedding, and have used Aileen’s services for other special occasions. I would highly recommend Aileen to any bride-to-be or anyone looking to have their make-up done professionally for any occasion. Aileen was a pleasure to deal with, both in the make-up trials before the wedding and on the day. She listened to requests for certain shades etc. and also offered advice and recommendations on what shades and make up suit your skin type. She was a very calming presence on the morning of the wedding. She did the make up for my three bridesmaids and my mother and had us all ready in plenty of time. Our make-up really looked fantastic in the photos and that is thanks to Aileen’s expertise and experience in bridal make up. I would recommend Aileen to anyone who wants to feel extra fabulous for a special occasion!

Thank you so much, Aileen, for your help on our wedding day. I was confident that you would be able to give myself, my bridesmaids and my mum a make-up look we liked and would be comfortable with. At the make-up trial, you took so much care making sure the foundation worked with my skin, that I felt comfortable and that I liked the look. On the day itself you made the preparations an absolute pleasure, getting us all ready on a tight schedule. Our make-up stayed in place all day and night and didn't need any top-ups. I would highly recommend you to any Brides-to-be. Many thanks. Kelly July 2013

Aileen did the most wonderful job for both myself, my sister and my mother. We had a small private ceremony first and then a large reception several weeks later and Aileen came to our house on both occasions to do our makeup. Not only were we delighted with her work, which made us all feel so beautiful and looking our best, but she was an absolute joy to have in the house on both mornings. She is so courteous, efficient and helpful. I cannot recommend her highly enough and would not hesitate to use her again for any future events.

Just a quick note to express my sincere thanks for the fab make up you always done for me. I've always found Aileen extremely professional and more importantly friendly and very welcoming. She made me feel at ease from the moment I walked in and I always felt nice and comfortable. Aileen uses fantastic top of art make up which i just adore and the range she has is every girls dream. I live in envy. I don't know how she does it but the make up just goes fantastic, absolutely flawless and it just stays on absolutely amazing all day long. It's like Aileen can read your mind for the type of make up you want. I often find that you tell make up artists/beauticians want eye make up you want and you end up with something completely different, that they didn't understand what I meant, but not with Aileen. She always gets it bang on the mark. The proof was definitely in the pudding as they say when Aileen did my make up for my Xmas party in Edinburgh. Aileen did my make up that morning before I left, so around 8 hours later, which included a bus journey to the airport, a flight to Edinburgh, another bus journey into the city and a walk to our apartment and the numerous drinks we had along the way and all i needed to do before we went out that night was throw on the guna and re apply my lip stick which is pretty darn amazing. Usually id be all shiny and my make up would be all cakey and it d just be a pure disaster but with Aileen's make up it was like she had only done it before I went out that night. I would completely recommend wholeheartedly Aileen to everyone. She'd def be on the top of my list for my make up if i was ever getting married, cause I've tried and tested and love the results I've seen.

Aileen was so professional throughout the whole process. She made me feel so comfortable from the minute I met her at the trial run and especially on my big day. She made me feel so relaxed on the day away from the rest of the madness at my house!! She did a fantastic job on the bridesmaids, my mum and even took the time to put a little gloss on my little flower-girl. She did a fantastic job on my make-up for the day and the photos are testament to that. She ensured we all looked lovely and natural and most importantly like ourselves. I would highly recommend her to anyone for their wedding day!!

Just dropping you an email now that things are back to a little post wedding normality! I really can't thank you enough for all of your hard work at transforming us ladies on the morning of August 6th at Roundwood House! It was the perfect start to a very special day, despite the trepidation of whether the rain was going to hold off!! I just couldn't have been happier with my make up or more at ease with you in charge.You were the very embodiment of calm! Everybody commented on how professional, personal and proficient you are as a make up artist. You made us all feel a million dollars! Actually Mum was bemoaning the fact that she didn't have your magic touch for my brother's graduation last week! Thank you as well for doing Grandma's make up at such short notice - I know it put the time table out but it made her feel like the Queen Bee! I can't wait to see the pictures and relive it all! Given I am very far from being a make up guru and have had more than one make up disaster, I searched far and wide to come across a make up artist's style that sat comfortably with me for my wedding day. I wanted to look glamorous but not over done - Aileen you achieved both without me ever even articulating it once! Thank you! AND to think that you were so close to home, just out the road in Ballinahown! Huge huge thanks again.
