For this week's Spotlight we met us with mega-talented Make Up Artist Aisling Kelly. Follow this Instaqueen's personal and professional profiles to keep up to date with her work and style!
Describe your personal style.
Oversized. Practical. Glitter but also goth. Usually combining elements of different subcultural styles and always with a touch of gold jewellery.
What ignited your love of make-up in fashion?
Seeing Pat McGrath’s early work with John Galliano in fashion magazines at a young age sparked my now undying love for theatrical fashion and editorial makeup. To me she is the most important pioneer of makeup design and innovation in the fashion world.
What has been the pinnacle of your career so far?
I’ve just finished designing and directing my first short film, which I’m exhibiting next month and am really proud of. It’s definitely my biggest achievement and the beginning of the next exciting chapter of my career. As well as that, it’s been amazing seeing my editorial makeup work reach magazines worldwide as well as in shop windows home in Dublin.
What are your five beauty staples that everyone should have in the day-to-day make up kit?
Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream!! La Roche-Posay 50+ Anthelios XL Sun Protection. Bioderma Sensibio Cleansing Water. Witch Hazel. Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow. Sorry that’s mostly skincare but truussss me, once you take care of your skin it’ll cut your makeup routine time in half.
Where do you see yourself in five years time? Hopefully happier and healthier, travelling the world working with other creative people. Surrounded by cats.
What are you most looking forward this Summer?
I have a couple of really exciting design jobs lined up which I’m really looking forward to. I’ll also be finished my degree so I’m looking forward to sleeping!! As well as that I have tickets for lots of music festivals and gigs so I can’t wait to pardyyyy.
If you could choose one song to be the soundtrack to your Summer what would it be?
At the moment it has to be ‘One Dance’ from Drake’s latest album * insert three fire emoji’s *
We asked Aisling to choose her Top Five Favourite pieces from our website!
