Joanne at Ballyseede Castle, Tralee

"I had Annette O'Brien booked to do my make-up for the day of our wedding (March 2018). She is absolutely brilliant at what she does. She is so cool, calm and collected. She is extremely professional and kept everyone at ease on a morning full of emotion. She completed my makeup, my 3 bridesmaids and my Mam's makeup also. Everyone was delighted with how they looked. She gives great advice and knows exactly what she is doing. Anyone looking to have flawless makeup on their wedding day should book Annette. You will not be disappointed.
I love makeup as do my 3 sisters- so we were fussy customers!! I think we all looked fabulous and we felt it too. Thanks so much Annette - You're brilliant xx Joanne"

The fabulous Louise Duffy

I had the pleasure of beautifying the gorgeous Louise Duffy, DJ Today FM at The Muckross Park Hotel a few weeks back.

The Spa at The Muckross Park Hotel launched The Organic Pharmacy as their new product and Louise was guest of honour on the night.

Makeup by me, hair by Pat O Neill

With Pat O Neill and Noreen Middleton, Spa Manager

A great night of prosecco and canap├ęs plus trying out all the new products, which are amazing!
