Martha Ryan MUA- This was such a transformation!!


Hiya All,

So as most of you will have seen I was on selfie central last Friday thanks to the fantastic work of Martha Ryan.

I was so lucky to have won a makeover from her a few weeks back and couldn't wait for an occasion to get all dolled up so with the Kings of Leon concert happening Friday, I decided that would be the best time to get to show off!

I made my way to Portmarnock which I didn't realise was pretty far from Killiney but nevertheless it was so so worth it. Here is my very tired before picture;

Martha is super friendly, her workspace is immaculate she has such a good knowledge of makeup there was no guessing what products to use. She is a fellow MAC lover and she knew exactly what I was looking for when I described it to her. I am a big lover of colours and usually pick the cranberry/orange or even navy tones but for Friday's look, I really wanted a bright cream and brown look. I love a smokey eye and all I asked was would she try and make my eyes pop!!

Obviously with getting my makeup done, I can't give you a step by step guide to creating this look but I asked Martha for a product list and she sent it on to me so here you have it;

Smashbox Studio Finish Primer
MAC Cosmetics Studio Fix Fluid 'NC35 & NW20'
MAC Cosmetics Prolong wear concealer 'NW15' (under eyes)
Kryolan supra color palette (blemishes)

 I had such a wonderful time with Martha, I felt completely comfortable in her company and I trusted her 100%. I have been following Martha on social media for months and if you haven't checked out her page you need to click over HERE 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, she can travel to you if the timing suits so I may just have to rope her over to Killiney the next time I have a girly night. We can all look like superstars then. I highly recommend Martha and we have all learned how fussy I have become about my makeup :) Her pricing is fantastic at €35 without lashes and €40 with. If you have an occasion coming up and you want to look flawless book her in she is always busy!
