Hi there and congratulations!

I'm a Professional Makeup Artist, specialising in Bridal Makeup. I am based in Straffan, Co. Kildare, but travel Nationwide.

It's such a pleasure and a privilege to be a small part of a Bride's big day! Bridal Makeup is all about beauty - beautiful polished makeup that enhances your natural beauty and also ensures that you and your Bridal Party look amazing and flawless in your photographs, all through the day (and well into the night!). I have always loved Makeup's ability to totally transform confidence, and having sky high confidence is never more important than on your wedding day! I get such joy from seeing my brides (and clients) float away feeling their absolute best and most beautiful.

I use only the highest quality products in my kit (for example Armani, Charlotte Tilbury, NARS and BareMinerals, for their proven finish and longevity. Bridal makeup package also includes top quality lashes if required. On the day of your wedding, I travel to your location and stay with you until you are all dressed and ready to go, to ensure all touch ups and finishing touches are taken care of.

I have many years of experience in the industry and while Bridal Makeup is my main area of expertise (and my passion!) I have also been lucky enough to have had many other amazing opportunities, including working with Gok Wan (I was lead artist for the Gok Wan and Danielle Mahon Fashion and Beauty events throughout Ireland). I have worked on several seasons of Fox TV's hit show "Name that Tune" and have worked on numerous editorial and corporate video/photo shoots. I travelled all over Ireland running events for skincare/cosmetics giant Shiseido (Masterclasses and in-store events).

You can check out some of my recent work on Facebook “Dee Buckley Makeup” or Instagram @deebuckleymakeup or visit my website www.deebuckleymakeup.com for further information.

If you would like to get in touch I would be delighted to provide you with a quotation and answer any queries you may have...

I look forward to hearing from you!

There?s something truly and undeniably special about Dee. I had the pleasure of having her do my makeup for my wedding & my bridal party girls as well.

Dee was, without question, my saving grace for my wedding morning. She is calm and sweet & as soon I I got in her chair I could breathe. All of the stress of the day melted away. She assured me all way going to be okay and spoke to me calmly, listened to everything I wanted. And executed it perfectly. She exceeded my expectations. I was floored & had told her that she made me look and feel more beautiful than ever. All of that talent wrapped up in the most beautiful energy of a human.

I shall be forever grateful for Dee not only for her sheer talent at what she does, but also for her giving me the gift of being able to savor a beautiful moment.

With 100 thank you and hugs.

One happy Bride, Rachel Scarcella

I have had my make up done with Dee before so I knew that I?d like her for my wedding and it was one part of the wedding preparations that I never worried about. Nothing was an issue and she was very responsive and helpful re timings etc on the admin side in the run up to the wedding too. She calmly did her work on the wedding morning, fitting right in with the buzz around her, lovely, reassuring, calming, friendly. I was so happy with how I looked, I don?t always like saying that but I knew from the comments I got from others and from the photos that Dee had worked her magic. She is the ultimate professional, really good at her job and lovely too, I would highly recommend her and am looking forward to finding another opportunity to get my make up done with her

Dee was fabulous to work with. She was super responsive throughout the entire process. She captured the exact look I wanted! I don't wear a lot of makeup day-to-day, so I really wanted a subtle style. Some of my bridesmaids wanted a lot more glam, and Dee delivered on that style as well! She is the perfect calming presence on the morning-of. I highly recommend Dee!

Dee effortlessly completed the make-up for the bride, 2 bridesmaids, mother of bride and sister of bride. The house was extremely busy on the morning with people everywhere but Dee calmly worked through it all. She has the most soothing and calming manner which made me totally relax. Dee stayed at the house right until I left to make any last minute finishes. She set me up for the day by not only doing an amazing job on my make up but calming my nerves and truly relaxing me for the best day ever. Thank you so much Dee.

I got married at the end of March and I am so happy Dee did mine, my bridal party?s and my mother-in-law?s makeup.

I don?t usually wear makeup, so I was a little apprehensive about finding a makeup artist. I?m also half Italian, half Indonesian, so I was also a little worried about finding someone that will be able to work with my skin tone.

However, from the very first correspondence, Dee was so lovely. When I came in for my trial, she immediately made me feel at ease. She was very attentive to what I wanted and I couldn?t be happier with the result and knew she was the right person for me.

On the day itself, everything felt very relaxed. Dee is not just a talented makeup artist, but she is also a beautiful person that made everyone feel like they were chatting with a friend. She had to work with four people that have very different complexions, and it was no bother to her.

We all felt amazing and the makeup held up so well all day. It actually didn?t feel like we had any makeup on, which for someone who doesn?t wear makeup on the regular, is amazing!

I cannot recommend Dee enough. If you have a special day coming up, you can trust Dee to make you feel your absolute best.

Thank you again, Dee.

Dee was absolutely wonderful. My mom doesn't speak English but it was an absolutely understanding between both of them. She is very professional and warm as a person so it makes the time flies in her hands. Also, she caught what I wanted at the perfection and as me everyone loved it. Thank you a lot Dee.

Dee is incredibly talented. I was blown away with my makeup on my wedding day. I've never been so happy with getting my makeup done.
I was also blown away by her kindness, i just knew i could trust her. I also knew she was going to be amazing as both the beauty salon and hairdresser I go to had praised her. If you haven't looked up Dee's instagram page you need to. You won't regret having her do your wedding make up.
I'm looking forward to getting Dee to do my makeup sometime in the near future! I wouldn't go to anyone else now.
Response from Dee Buckley Makeup
Thank you so so much Michelle! You are stunning and I look forward to seeing you again soon xxx

I have had the absolute pleasure of having Dee do my make up on a few occasions. Dee is such a professional and so friendly and I always come away feeling and looking a million dollars, she has the magic touch! No matter what the occasion she just knows what look suits that occasion! I couldn't recommend Dee highly enough. So if you haven't looked her up you are missing out! See you again soon!

Got my make up done for myself and my bridal party by Dee for my wedding.
I was very nervous as this was my first time every getting someone to do my makeup and I didn?t go for a trial run.
I told her what I wanted and that I.had never worn eyelashes before and was afraid they would be very heavy on my eyes but she reassured me everything would look natural.
When she was finished I could believe how good it looked, I was delighted with the results. Thank you Dee xx

I was really worried about my makeup for my wedding as I never normally wear makeup so I was completely out of my comfort zone. Dee was exceptional at helping me ease my mind. The quality of the products felt like a wasn't even wearing any makeup which was incredible. The make up was beatuiful, she hit understood me completely and I would always recommend her to everyone.

Dee was absolutely wonderful to deal with, so professional and really put at ease that day when the nerves were a little high! She also did my moms makeup which was stunning on her. My mum remarked on how well her makeup lasted during the day. I have since had my face done by Dee as she is that lovely to deal with.
