Professional Makeup Artist

About Kate

Kate Rose Crean has fast become one of Irelands most sought after freelance make-up artists. Having graduated from DCU in 2001 with an honours degree in Communication Studies, she felt the pull of her creative instincts and discovered her true passion in Theatrical Make Up Artistry, which she studied in Dun Laoighaire.

Kate Rose now has over a decade of experience with brides and continues to work regularly on TV and with Irelands top celebrities and publications. She regularly writes for the RTE Guide and has appeared on the much coveted judging panel for IMAGE Beauty Awards.

Her creative ability, professional warm personality, extensive product knowledge and her finely tuned skill to work calmly and efficiently in every environment makes her a favourite with clients all over.
