Martha Ryan Makeup Artist

Working as a Professional Makeup Artist for 10 years, this sacred craft has become not only a profession, but a therapeutic passion. I believe that all art is healing and that does not exclude makeup artistry. I use makeup as a tool to enhance and celebrate the unique features of women that are already there, waiting to be uncovered and capable of shining.


With over a decade of experience, my work has been featured on CNN, The National Lottery, The Irish Sun, The Voice of Ireland, Don't Tell The Bride, The Irish Star, TV3, Exposé, RTÉ and many other publications alongside the faces of thousands of beautiful women across the country.

Nominated for Bridal Makeup Artist of The Year in 2016, my unique perspective combined with an eye for detail allows me applaud the individuality of each woman that relaxedly sits in my presence.


My purpose as an Artist, is to enhance beauty, rather than masking.

Authentic Beauty

Real Beauty Shines From Within...


Ethics & Ethos

My products are sourced from ethical, cruelty-free companies with a minimal environmental impact, where possible. I am also a volunteer for 'Look Good Feel Better' - a charity which uses the power of makeup to help rebuild self confidence for women who have gone through cancer treatment.

I believe we each have attributes that deserve to be celebrated for their individuation. Authentic Makeup Artistry, to me, means providing each client a unique recognition of their own inner and outward beauty through the power of this art form. Wherever this journey takes me, I simply hope to contribute to this industry in a positive, forward-thinking way.

I am ever so grateful for my life as a Makeup Artist which enables me to leave my own mark of beauty on the world and a positive imprint on each and every one of my clients.

"The Makeup was Flawless"

"I'm a qualified makeup artist and entrusted Martha to do my makeup for a family event. I can honestly say hands down, that no-one has ever done my makeup as perfect as Martha has. The makeup was flawless and the craic we had while she was dolling me up was great. Martha is a complete professional and I would highly recommend her to anyone"

 Laura Fogarty

"Completely At Ease"

 "I had my makeup done by Martha for my 21st birthday. I had never gotten my make-up done before and wasn't really sure what look I wanted. I completely trusted Martha and was over the moon with how my look turned out. To say I was in good hands would be an understatement! I was nervous when I arrived but Martha had me completely at ease the entire time. I could not recommend her more!"

 Edel Costello

"Professional & Kind"

"I got my makeup done off Martha about 3 years ago and it was stunning. She is so professional and kind, truly one of the most genuine people I’ve met. Her passion for makeup really shows when she's in the process of doing it! I’ve recently just finished my one year makeup artistry course and I hope to be nearly as good as her in the future!"

 Sharon Smith

"She Has that Kind Soul About Her"

"Martha is so professional but with that nice friendly approach that not all makeup artist have. I could feel her gift of making me over with every stroke application, and it was a real treat. I promise to make another appointment soon, and I am so happy to see her doing what she does so well...she has that kind soul about her, so thank you for my experience ♡"

 Kayleen Griffin

"I Felt Completely Comfortable"

"Martha is super friendly, her workspace is immaculate she has such a good knowledge of makeup there was no guessing what products to use. I had such a wonderful time with Martha, I felt completely comfortable in her company and I trusted her 100%. She is so talented, I mean if I could ever get to the skill level she is at I would happily dedicate my life to makeup! I will absolutely be back to Martha again"
