Bridal Make-up

Sparkle on your big day!


Package for Bride + 3 bridesmaids:

wedding dress

Bridal Trial, worth 80, is redeemable if you choose to buy the full bridal make-up package

Mother of the Bride included at no extra cost!

Pre-wedding Trial - Blitz Facial

Bridal Blits is a 90min treatment which exfoliates, hydrates and evens out skin tone. I redefine and tint both lashes and brows removing any unsightly fluffies on the face. This treatment allows the bride to walk out the door confident, glowing and pristine while being totally bare faced!

Lash in a Flash

Eyelash extension systems  have made it possible to improve the appearance of the eyes without makeup and without creams. Thick lashes that appear to curl upward enlarge the eyes and dramatize their beauty. 
Lash in a Flash transforms your eyes in just 20 minutes  and reduces or eliminates the need for mascara altogether.
Helen was trained in London with Nouveau Lashes and has been actively working with Blink & Go lashes for the past ten years.


Also Included


This package includes Airbrushed Make-up and Lashes for the Bride and Make-up and Lashes for 3 Bridesmaids. Other lash options are available.

About Helen

I am so excited to be finally able to write this page! Having gained more than 20 years experience in the beauty industry , working as both a CIDESCO therapist, a CIATE nail trainer, Derma expert, a salon owner and as a Bridal make-up artist, I can now shout my favourite beauty secrects from the roof tops! I have learned through celebrity make-up artists and world renouned beauty houses in Ireland, Italy and America some amazing tips and trade secrets which I can now share with you here on this site over the coming weeks and months and through my courses. Starting off my career in Brown-Thomas, Dublin with Shiseido skin-care and make-up, upon completion of my training in the Bronwyn Conroy beauty school on Grafton street. I got to work with some really talented people. Working with Anna Keogh in particular, who is the National trainer, was amazing and I feel very fortunate to have been able to get so much experience from her and the team there during my 4 great years as counter manager in Brown Thomas. Always looking for a new chalange I later moved to David Lloyds in Clonskeagh where I managed a team of of 5 girls, always working with the Shiseido brand. Then in 2000 I set up my own salon in Maynooth, the Helen Gray Salon, which was the first Shiseido salon in Kildare. After 11 years I found a new amazing product in Creme De La Mer. While working in Harvey Nichols as a part-time counter manager, I gained a deep understanding of this totally natural product. I now use this product in my Bridal Blitz facial and recommed it to all my brides, it's pure luxury. Currently I am a full time Bridal make-up artist & trainer, my passion for make-up when I was very young, and I have had the very good fortune of working with some of the very best in the industry such as, Annie Cribbin, Serge Lutens (Shiseido, Francesca Petrangeli and Dani Wagner.

Yellow eye shadow  cannot be ignored anymore with its repeat showings in the latest palette launches and on the spring 2018 runways. If you're feeling shy about the sunshine shade, you can limit it to the inner or outer corners of your eyes like makeup artists did at Fenty and Self Portrait

We celebrate Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream

Elemis’s Pro-Collagen Marine Cream is a lightweight yet highly hydrating gel-cream formula designed to firm up the skin and target signs of ageing fast. Key ingredients include a Mediterranean brown algae called padina pavonica - arguably the hero ingredient - rose and mimosa absolutes and gingko biloba for protection against free radicals.

The make-mine-minimal look:

 Less can sometimes be more, so if this is your makeup philosophy, you'll love this eyeliner look from the Prabal Gurung show. First, trace your upper lashline, making a very thin line along your top lashes using a black eye pencil. Next, curl your lashes and add a coat of lengthening  mascara
