Heather Minchin Make Up Artist divides her time between running her own business as a Make-up Artist in Carlow Town specialising Bridal Make Up Artistry, and her mid-week Job as a Brow Specialist and Beauty Therapist in Rustiq Carlow.

Heathers career in the Art of Beauty has spanned over 8 years, as a fully qualified Make-Up Artist and Beauty Therapist there is nothing in this industry that she hasn’t turned her hand to from 5-star Destination Spas to busy city salons both here at home in Ireland and across the Atlantic in New York. After a just 2 years in working as a beauty therapist she began to focus on her art with the help and guidance of two Irelands most successful make-up artists, Paula Callan and Derrick Carberry. Under the watchful eye of Paula and Derrick Heather learned the trade from bridal to editorial, high fashion to commercial, as well as assisting on fashion shoots and catwalks. It was here her love for the Make Up Artistry was gilded. Heather then moved to stateside to New York City and worked alongside some of the best in the industry on shows such as ‘The Gossip Table’ and ‘The Nick Lacey Show’ as well as MUA assisting other artists on jobs such as the Transformers Premier, National Aids Campaign Commercial. Assisting was a huge part of Heathers day to day living in New York learning alongside industry renowned artists such as Randall Tang, Gigi Shaker and Robyn Watson Hamilton.

Heather has always had a passion for education and training with an extensive certificates and credits, just last year she began a post graduate ITEC course in Teacher Training and is now teaching VTCT Make Up course in Gorey Institute of Beauty.
