'Make-up - Every bride wants to look and feel her best on the day and so I did my homework when it came to make-up and hair. For make-up I chose the brilliantly talented Edwina Kelly who was based in Dublin but travelled to Killarney the night before our big day. She only charged us her train fare to do so too!! I had eight people getting their make-up done between bridesmaids, mothers and good friends so Edwina bought along her friend and colleague Emma and they both did an amazing job. I’m very picky (as are my friends) when it comes to make-up and we were all thrilled with the results. My make-up stayed on all night and day (it even survived the sweating on the dance floor) without looking caked or trowelled on. I also have to say, that Edwina and Emma were both an absolute pleasure to have around on the day – so lovely, calm and easy to talk to. Since my wedding in October a number of my friends have already booked Edwina to do their make-up for balls and parties – she’s that good!'

‘Let’s face it, our Edwina is a star attraction’
A brilliant young local woman is one of the reasons why our stars of the screen and stage look so fantastic, she has rubbed shoulders with actors, actresses and high profile entertainers for years, she is one our country’s top make-up artists.
In the city we have a young woman who is making a huge impression in the world of make-up and after only 4 years as a freelancer she is now established as one of the more talented in a challenging profession. A combination of determination, a business-like approach and a tremendous skill has ensured that Edwina boasts clients such as actor comedian Mario Rosenstock.
Edwina’s super progress in a career which she loves is encouraging for all young women and men who may choose her profession, she is evidence that hard work and determination can bring success.
We wish you continued success and thank you for the excellent public relations which you are generating for our city and county. Kilkenny is proud of you!
