I am a trained Skin Care Specialist, Beauty Therapist and Make Up  Artist with over 12 years experience, specialising in both bridal and occasion makeup. I am not affiliated to any specific make-up range so I have no restrictions when it comes to the brand of make up you prefer. I tend mostly to use Estee Lauder, MAC, Armani, Lancome, Bobbi Brown, YSL, Glo Minerals and Bare Minerals but can offer other brands if requested.

I am a perfectionist and passionate about achieving the desired look for my brides. I understand fully how personal make up is and how importantt it is to listen to my client. Some brides to be will like a natural look while others are more comfortable with a dramatic look. 

There is no right or wrong it's about you recognising yourself and feeling that you have never looked better. Also, it is of course crucial that your make up lasts and that it transitions from day to night so it's important that the products used will work in both natural and artifical lighting.

This is why for my trials I ideally like to trial early in the day in natural light so that you get what I would describe as a true trial. My trials also take up to 3 hours as for me I feel there should be no rush involved as this is one of the biggest days of your life and you want to feel amazing. They are of course also a lot of fun as I have a very friendly personality and love meeting new brides to be and hearing all about your plans for your wedding day.

Charlotte is an incredibly talented makeup artist. She understood exactly my personal style and also the preferences of my mum and bridesmaids. My wedding service was early and we were getting ready quite a distance from the church venue and she managed to have each one of us looking our best in plenty of time. Charlotte was very flexible with regards to my makeup trial and worked around my limited availability to come to Ireland before the wedding (as I live in the UK). She was very patient and thorough during the trial and discussed several looks in detail, taking the time to understand my taste and preferences. She uses the highest quality products and takes time to explain exactly what combinations of products she is applying. I feel that the bridal party and I clicked with Charlotte on the day , she is so down to earth and we were able to enjoy the experience on the wedding morning with plenty of good banter and cheer all round. We were all so thrilled with our makeup , I’ve never felt so glamorous in all my life. Charlotte you are a true pro , thank you !

If I could give Charlotte 10stars I would. She is just top class! I knew I was in great hands when I went to my trial and my makeup was flawless! Charlotte is so professional and is just so passionate about makeup. The morning of the wedding I was a bag of nerves and she was just so chilled, cool, calm and witty and made us all feel at ease! She also kept an eye on the time and co-ordinated what we all needed to do and what needed to be done to have us out the door on time! She just goes above and beyond for her brides and their families, Charlotte thank you so so much, I loved loved loved my makeup for my wedding. PS My mother, who is very hard to please when it comes to makeup as she is so glam herself, HIGHLY praised Charlotte and said that she is the only other person other than herself that she would let paint her face!!!!!!!! The ultimate compliment!

Charlotte is fantastic! I would recommend her to any bride. She is professional, easygoing, honest and so friendly. She pays attention to detail, gives her own tips while taking your ideas into account. My sisters and mum also loved her! I would definitely hire Charlotte again for a function. In fact, my sisters asked if we could book her again for my nephew’s wedding! x

Charlotte , thank you so much for my wedding makeup. You arrived early on the day to do 7 faces in total, myself, 3 adult bridesmaids and 3 junior bridesmaids. We were all thrilled with how you made us look. The makeup suited everyone, lasted all day and you put everyone at ease. We all really enjoyed meeting you, you would take no break and kept working, what a professional lady you are. You also are genuine, normal and all round lovely. I have passed your number on to the many people who complimented how we all looked on the day. I’ll definitely book you again for any function as I know you will help me to look my best. I honestly couldn’t have been happier with you...you gave me confidence and a boost on my day and you also made all the bridesmaids happy. Worth every penny. I will unreservedly recommend you to everyone I know who needs a makeup artist. With my very best wishes, Sarah Gillen

I would just like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to Charlotte for everything you did on the morning of our wedding last October. You were absolutely outstanding and so easy to deal with in the lead up. On the day of the trial you knew exactly what I wanted after a few minutes - nothing was a problem for you and from there I knew everything would be perfect on the day. You were so punctual on the morning which kept us all in line!! You made me and everyone so at ease - a true professional. I loved my make up on the day and it was still absolutely perfect at 5am the following morning! The girls were all so pleased with their make up also so I really couldn't have been happier. I would have no hesitation in recommending Charlotte for any occasion you have coming up, a true professional inside and out. Thank you again for everything.

I can't recommend Charlotte enough to future brides! She is simply amazing at what she does. She did my make up for my wedding a few weeks ago, along with my mom and bridesmaids, and we all absolutely loved our make up! We all had very different tastes in make up and she knew exactly what to do on each of us. My mother never wears make up but Charlotte put her totally at ease and made her makeup so natural, she looked beautiful. Our make up lasted all day and night, and we danced all night!! My make up even lasted for day 2 celebrations! Thanks so much Charlotte for making me feel like a million dollars on my big day!

I used the services of the talented Charlotte O'Mahony for my wedding, last September. She is an incredible MUA and has amazing attention to detail and will ensure that your look like a Hollywood star on the day. I had my consultation with Charlotte in June of 2019, and I explained that I wanted a natural look for my day. During the makeup trial, she explained everything that she was using, that would suit and it was just brilliant to know that I was in good hands with someone so knowledgeable. She uses amazing high quality products that suit you skin type and tone. We had an early start on the morning of the wedding, as I was having a first look photo shoot before the wedding. Charlotte arrived early and helped myself, 3 bridesmaids and two mammies to look their best. She was great fun on the morning with the chatting and banter. All the bridal party got so many compliments on their makeup, which lasted perfectly into the next day. I highly recommend Charlotte to future brides, as she is a gem and an amazing MUA.

Choosing Charlotte as the make up artist for my wedding was a great decision! Even through the trial, I knew Charlotte was very professional, and a perfectionist in her work. She took it step by step, and didn't move on until you were happy with each part! On the wedding day, she was great fun to be around, but at the same time, she concentrated on her work, ensuring we were all ready in time! I didn't have to touch up my make up once during the day, in fact it still looked good the next day! I would definitely recommend Charlotte to anyone looking for a make up artist for their wedding. They won't regret it! Thanks Charlotte for everything, Katie

Charotte is amazing and from the minute I met her felt so at ease. She is very experienced and can cater your makeup to suit you. The trial was excellent and Charlotte spend over three hours getting the makeup just perfect and the way I wanted it focusing on every detail. Her knowledge of makeup and what shades and colours work well is amazing. She explains clearly her ideas and goes through everything step by step. On the morning she was organised and everything ran so smoothly because of her. I absolutely loved my makeup on the day and so did my three bridesmaids and my mom. My mom had never had makeup done professionally before so was naturally worried but Charlotte listening to exactly what she wanted and tailored it to suit her. My mom loves it so much. Would highly recommend Charlotte for your wedding day. She is amazing

I booked Charlotte for our wedding in June and it was the best decision that I had made for my bridal party! I met Charlotte in the southern brides show the year previous and even from the chat we had on the day I knew we would be in great hands. The trial went so well, my sister came with me and she loved the whole process. Every step of the makeup was discussed fully and nothing was decided until I was 100% happy with everything, even the fact she gave me exactly what I wanted without saying goes a long way! Charlotte was so friendly and welcoming I felt as if I was in a friends house getting my make up done! I left feeling a million dollars. On the morning of the wedding Charlotte helped keep us all calm and we had a great laugh throughout the morning, my makeup was just as amazing as the trial and I loved that I had no worries at all. My bridal party’s makeup was as beautiful and everyone was so happy how they looked, and the compliments were flowing all day. I highly recommend Charlotte as she is an amazing makeup artist, and super professional while being down to earth. Thanks again Charlotte for making me feel like such a ride!!

Charlotte is an amazing make up artist. For any special occasions Charlotte is one of the first calls we make. Her make up is flawless, it lasts for the day/night and its still even perfect the following morning! She puts you at ease from the moment you meet her. We recently had a family wedding and all the bridal party were very impressed with Charlotte's work, it was so natural looking we all felt fabulous. Would highly recommend Charlotte to anyone.

Did you ever get your hair done by someone and think to yourself 'oh my God it looks amazing'? "This person is going to do my hair forevermore"! Well, when it comes to Make-up, Charlotte is that person. I cannot praise Charlotte highly enough for the work she does. I have called on her for every special occasion since my own wedding 5 years ago and not once have I been disappointed. She is the BEST at what she does. She is a total perfectionist and thoroughly loves what she does. She is a pleasure to have around on the mornings of these days and makes it very stress free. She takes her time with each person and truly listens to what they want. If you want to look your best, then Charlotte is the lady to make that happen. My daughter even now says "Charlotte makes mommy beautiful"

Charlotte is the best in the business. Charlotte went above and beyond. Her skill and talent is out of this world, it didn’t even phase her with 9 people in my bridal party she trooped on and even had spare time at the end. All the girls couldn’t get over how good she made them look and all of them commented on how it felt we weren’t even wearing makeup it felt so natural. My sister even said she felt she was sad as she couldn’t get her makeup as nice as Charlotte had made it. My makeup went on early and my god did it last.... I woke up the next morning and it was still perfect. I would highly recommend anyone to use Charlotte she is definitely one in a million. Thanks again for everything you did on the day.

What an amazing experience with Charlotte's. She would put any bride at ease and brings a sparkle to the morning. Unbelievable how the make up lasted till 6am, she is beyond talented, I couldn't recommend her enough. She gave everyone in my wedding party great attention, and it's not just a brides morning, it's a real ladies morning.

Charlotte did the make-up for me, my mum and bridesmaid on my wedding day, and honestly, none of us could have been happier. Charlotte is a true professional, which became apparent from the moment we first contacted her and she responded straight away with a comprehensive explanation of her services. At my trial she listened really carefully to what I was looking for (a natural look, as I tend not to wear a huge amount of make-up ordinarily) and consulted with me every step of the way. On the morning of the wedding she was a hugely calming presence in our house - setting up without us even noticing and just getting on with it, having a laugh with everyone and putting us all (especially me!) at ease on what was quite a nerve-wracking morning! I was absolutely delighted with my look, which stayed on perfectly all day and night until the early hours of the morning and beautifully transitioned from day to night. The make-up, rather than making me feel like a different person as I've experienced with professional make-up work in the past, made me feel like the most attractive and glamorous version of me, which was fantastic and such an important feeling on your wedding day! I would (and absolutely will) recommend Charlotte to anyone - thank you for making me feel so superb on my special day!

I have no hesitation in recommending Charlotte. Not only is she an amazing make up artist, with an eye for perfection and delivering pristine make up that lasts the day and night, but she also doubles up as an agony aunt/wedding planner/emergency problem solver and kept us all calm the morning of my wedding. Her presence made our morning perfect, and I can't thank her enough for being part of our special day! Look no further than this fabulous lady.

Charlotte was amazing at doing all our make up for the wedding, it was an absolute dream seeing how she worked and fitted in so well to the morning fun! I am so glad she there as it was so effortless and I cannot thank her enough. My make up was out of this world and the amount of comments I got was unreal especially for my eyes! All the girls and my mum loved theirs too they all lasted well into the early hours of the next day and we all thought the world of Charlotte! She is so talented and such a genuine nice person. Nothing was too much trouble and she went over and above and was so organised and her timings with the girl doing the hair, it was spot on! It really was fantastic. I couldn't recommended her enough.

I met Charlotte at a Wedding Fare in Fota House in 2015, and from the moment I spoke to her I knew she was the lady that I wanted to book to do my make up for my Wedding Day. Her portfolio was amazing and the professionalism and her knowledge of bridal make up was exactly what every bride is looking for. My make up trial was so detailed yet so relaxed and Charlotte herself just made me feel so at ease. As for my Wedding Day, absolute perfection, My make up was natural yet stunning, and my two bridesmaids and my mum were all so happy with Charlottes choice of colours etc and we were all glowing on the day. I'd recommend Charlotte to any bride to be, amazing.

Charlotte was the makeup artist for my wedding back in September. She did the makeup for myself, my two bridesmaids, my mother and mother-in-law. Our venue was in West Cork and not the easiest to find, but this didn't faze Charlotte at all. I had my trial in her house a few months before the wedding, I had only used a professional makeup artist once before and wasn't sure what to expect. She was so welcoming and friendly. I thoroughly enjoyed the full 2 hour trial. She had loads of tips and advice on how to get my skin in its best condition for the big day. On the day of the wedding, Charlotte created a relaxed and fun atmosphere in the house. Her experience really stands to her and she had some fantastic advice on the day. I have very fair skin and don't wear fake tan, so I was nervous about wearing too much makeup. My makeup on the day was flawless and matched perfectly to my skin tone, I was complimented throughout the day on how natural it looked...and lasted right up to 3am! I also have sensitive skin, which reacts very badly to some products. Charlotte spent a lot of time during the trial discussing this and as a result was able to pick the right products for me. My bridal party were thrilled with her and their makeup was tailored to their individual requests, even the two mothers, who rarely wear makeup, were delighted with the results. I highly recommend Charlotte to any future bride.

Charlotte was a delight to work with. From start to finish she was friendly, professional and lovely to be around. She listened to everything that I wanted and gave great advice. The trial in her home was relaxed and comfortable, she was very thorough, ensuring the look we were going for was just perfect. On the morning of our wedding she arrived on time and in high spirits, she made all my girls feel at ease and created flawless finishes for us all. If your looking for a down to earth chatty MUA that can make you look your best then Charlotte is the perfect person to choose! I cannot recommend her enough!!!
