Eyrebrushed Makeup Studios located at No.1 The Parade took to the streets to mark the end of Kilkenny Fashion Week, and set up in the Market Cross. Emma Hogan Eyre Proprietor has remained committed to her promise to bringing Make Up Artists of the finest calibre to Kilkenny, to deliver first class training to local students and makeup artists.

“The best training isn’t always accessible outside Dublin, I’m committed to bringing the best of the best to Kilkenny” said Emma.

Derrick Carberry, a leading celebrity makeup artist both in Ireland and the UK visited the studio last week and presented a workshop and a one hour makeup demonstration for the public in the Market Cross shopping centre.

A large crowd watched as Derrick made over local model Grace O’ Mahony who won the prestigioud fashion scholarship at Kilkenny Fashion Week last year.

Derrick’s extensive client list is a testimony to his work. In addition to working for top Irish publications such as Image, Tatler, Prudence, VIP and RSVP, Derricks hands have also graced the faces of celebrities such as Elle MacPherson, Kevin Spacey, Anjelica Huston, Girls Aloud, Cecelia Ahern and Louise Redknapp, to name a few. Derrick’s advertising campaigns include L’Oreal, Elisabeth Arden, Wella, Brown Thomas, Vaseline, Kellogg’s and Toni & Guy.

“We are delighted to be able to bring Makeup Artists like Derrick to Kilkenny and to work alongside the staff and management at the Market Cross in hosting such events.” said Emma.
