I’m Ruth and my journey into a career of makeup
started from an early age. I spent my summer holidays working in a local beautician and at the age of 16 I assisted at my first wedding and I was hooked! I absolutely loved the buzz and excitement of a wedding morning and still do so to this day.
When I finished my studies, I went on to train with the super prestigious Ciara Daly Makeup Academy in Ireland and in more recent years I have trained with Kristina Gasperas Academy in London. Kristina is a wedding industry awards judge and previous national award winner. I continue to develop my skills and knowledge with regular training with top industry professionals. I have never felt more fulfilled and happier in my career choice. I really have to pinch myself that I get to do something I love so much for a living. I feel truly honoured when someone books me to be their makeup artist.
I believe that my many years of experience within the makeup world has enabled me to try so many different brands and products. I only use industry established brands that I know really work like Estee Lauder, Charlotte Tilbury, Bobbi Brown, Nars and Laura Mercier.
On a personal note I’m Irish and a country girl at heart, I spent most of my childhood in a pair of riding boots on horseback …. And this is still a passion of mine to this day, I married my best friend in 2019 and we live on a farm in the heart of Herefordshire. I like to travel, try new things, laugh often and really don’t take myself too seriously. I hope you feel like you know me a little better now and I look forward to getting to know you and help you feel like the most beautiful version of you!
" I cannot speak highly enough of Ruth.
So knowledgeable, so clever, so professional and just so lovely. Her makeup is amazing.
Felt as if I'd know her for ages, she made me feel so relaxed and so comfortable.
My search for a makeup artist is over - I'm so glad I found her"- Cath
