Ashley is a professional make up artist that travels internationally, specialising in beauty, editorial, runway and commercial make up. She can be seen working regularly at London, Milan and Paris fashion weeks.
At the beginning of Ashley’s career she set out in the world of art, training to be an art teacher at the prestigious National College of Art and Design Ireland in 1997. Her early years in the make up industry started on film sets and TV studios where she cultivated her craft. With a wealth of experience and knowledge, she has acquired a sharp eye for detail and loves to show beauty and art simultaneously in her make up. She is constantly striving to innovate and push boundaries and wants to work with like minded individuals.
