My name is Claire Dempsey and I'm an ambitious but dependable makeup artist primarily, but I am also an aspiring photographer and retoucher. As my background is in fine art painting and photography I am very creative and have a great understanding of colour theory, studio lighting, composition etc.
I have experience in beauty, fashion, bridal and also theatrical makeup, working as the makeup designer on shows such as:
'Playboy of the Western World' (Lyric Theatre, Belfast)
'Macbeth' (Lyric Theatre, Belfast)
'Mixed Marriages' (Lyric Theatre, Belfast)
'Hansel and Grettel' (Lyric Theatre, Belfast)
'Our Country's Good' (Lyric Theatre, Belfast)
'A Comedy of Errors' (Theatre at the Mill, Newtownards)
I now offer airbrushing services which is superb for close-up beauty shots as you can achieve a flawless, even complexion without looking caked in makeup.
If you are interested in my services or have any questions at all please don't hesitate to contact me. I would love to hear from you! Also, even though I now live in Northern Ireland I am still open to working on shoots in Dublin/Wicklow/Wexford, just send me a message.
