I was delighted to go this morning for a little tour of Paddy McGurgan's new Makeup Pro Store which is located on Royal Avenue (just a few doors up from the Belfast Telegraph). If you live in Belfast, I'm sure you'll know Paddy. He is Northern Ireland's finest makeup artist and has won many competitions for his work. He recently opened up his own makeup shop which must be every makeup artists dream! They offer makeup lessons (a must for any young girl or someone who just wants to up their knowledge), makeup application and have teamed up with Khara Pringle's photographic studio upstairs for some amazing packages to look your best! Paddy and his staff are so lovely and very welcoming which is always a great thing to feel from a makeup artist- I love getting my makeup done and having a good old chat with the makeup artist!
Paddy stocks a lot of makeup that is both affordable and perfect for beginners right up to pro-makeup artists like himself. With brands such as Makeup Artelier (their HD blush alone is worth going to Paddy's shop to see) to amazing skincare brand Embryolisse (which is a favourite of models and makeup artists around the world), the shop is worth a look! I was also really taken by the fact that Paddy has his own brand of brushes which are AMAZING quality and so affordable. I will be calling back in ASAP to start adding more to my collection. He also told me he has a makeup and a skincare line in talks to maybe add to the store but he wouldn't mention what.... excited to see what they are!
Here are some of my favourite things in the store:
We thought we would ask Paddy 5 quick beauty questions as we had reached out to our Facebook and Twitter followers- let me know if you like having videos on That Belfast Girl and we'll try and do a few more!
