I've been a professional makeup artist for 21 years. My work spans fashion, TV, commercial work to beauty writing, teaching both professional courses and private lessons and bridal make-up. I have felt the adrenaline of working backstage at London Fashion Week, stood for 12 hours in freezing fields on music videos, trained others how to become make up artists and applied the final touches before seeing beautiful brides off to be married. Each experience is equally rewarding, hard work and exhilarating.

I spent several years working in London for MAC Cosmetics and then as a tutor at The Jemma Kidd Make Up School. I've painted the faces of everyday men and women and also well known actors, musicians and fashion models. I returned to Dublin in 2012 continuing on a freelance basis.

 In my experience, what never changes is every woman's desire to look absolutely gorgeous and yet still feel like themselves.

My work includes: London Fashion Week, BAFTA, The British Soap Awards & Hardy Amies at the V&A & The People Of The Year.

Some faces she has painted include: Erin O'Connor, Barbara Windsor, Vogue Williams, Jenna Coleman, Daisy Lowe, Cat Deeley, Meat Loaf, Stephen Fry, Poppy Delevigne, Little Mix, Andrea Corr, Grainne Seoige & the cast of Coronation Street, Eastenders and Emmerdale.

Danielle was amazing to work with both ar trial stage and on the wedding day itself. She has such an amazing talent for crafting a make up look to different features, instead of just piling the make up on. On the day of my wedding Danielle had 6 faces to do and she was so calm,everybody was delighted. My own make up didnt budge all day. I highly recommend Danielle, she is a true artist!
Response from Danielle Murphy Make Up Artist
Thank you Alana, It was such an honour to do your wedding make up and I'm so flattered that you thought to use me years after meeting each other in your modelling days. It was such a lovely morning with your gorgeous family and bridesmaids. Wishing you and Rory a long and happy life together x

Excellent service - she did a great job on the day. I felt I was in good hands as she knew exactly what she was doing. Also, she supported the kind of look I wanted.

Had two very relaxing makeup trials in Danielle's lovely home to decide on a makeup look. On the day itself, she arrived early and put us all at ease with her calm manner. She was super relaxed while at the same time making sure that everyone's makeup was done in time. It was such a pleasure to have her with us on the morning of my wedding. And the make up was FAB! Highly recommend

I used Danielle for my wedding and I cannot recommend her highly enough! She was extremely reliable, fabulous to deal with and her make-up talents are amazing! Organising wedding suppliers from overseas I thought would be tricky but she helped to make everything a breeze. And her beauty tips in the lead up to the big day was a real bonus. I should also add that I work with make-up artists on a regular basis in my home country so I knew exactly what I was looking for. Danielle certainly delivered and went above and beyond on the day and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to future brides!

Danielle was great. She really listened to what everyone wanted. As the bride, she made me look so natural and gave me lots of tips to take home! She had 4 faces that morning and everyone was really pleased with the results.

Hi Danielle, We had a great day at the wedding, thanks, and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole day. The ceremony, etc., went really well and there were no hitches. Thanks very much for your calm and professional manner, and the make-up job you did was really brilliant. I felt great by the time I left the house.

Apologies it has taken me so long to thank you for the amazing job you did with my make up on my wedding day. You did an amazing job as always and I will of course call upon you for any future events.

The whole day was great criac, including getting our makeup done :)

Danielle was my make-up artist for my wedding day. I was so lucky she was free after being let down by someone. Her work lives up to her oustanding reputation. Thank you again Danielle.

I have had the pleasure of having my make up done by Danielle for a birthday celebration. I loved the experience, she is so relaxed and dedicated while applying the make-up I really felt like something wonderful was happening. and it was, the creative colours and shades used suited me so well. I absolutely felt fantastic and wish I could get it done every day but it is the best thing to splash out on for a special occasion.

Danielle did my wedding make-up and I could not have asked for anyone better! Not only did she take on board all of my comments but she was also an absolute pleasure to work with. She did such a good job that I didn't need to worry about touching up. I would recommend Danielle to anyone, she was absolutely brilliant."

Danielle was the makeup artist for my wedding and did a fantastic job at making me and the bridal party look amazing on my special day. Based on my photos, friends have booked Danielle for their wedding. Danielle not only listens to what you want but knows what look will work no matter what the occasion. She is passionate about what she does and since my wedding I've learned some top tips with a one to one makeup lesson!

I regularly use Danielle Murphy for both commercial and fashion jobs. On editorials I have found her an innovative and directional make up artist who is on top of the latest fashion trends, while on commercial jobs she brings a high level of professionalism to every job and has the ability to take direction and work as part of a team"

As a model, I get to work with many different make-up artists. The minute I met Danielle, I instantly knew that not only is she confident and in control but that she is capable of any look, which is so important. She is definitely one of my favourite make-up artists."

Danielle was introduced to me by a friend about four years ago. Since then I have used her for balls, corporate events, evenings out and advice on make up products. Danielle clearly knows what looks good and has on several occasions exceeded my expectations and totally transformed me! I have absolute confidence in Danielle's abilities and have even booked her for my wedding. I trust Danielle implicitly and can safely say I haven't met a make-up artist so skilled and personable. Danielle's friendly, honest and great fun! I have absolutely no doubt in recommending her as the best in her field!
