Award-winning Celebrity Make Up Artist Michelle Montgomery studied Beauty Therapy and Theatrical and Media Make Up in Senior College, Dun Laoghaire.

After she graduated in 2008 she went on to perfect her make up skills working for quality make up brands such as MAC, Armani Cosmetics, Smashbox, Dior Cosmetics and Inglot.

Michelle decided to leave Inglot in 2014 and pursue her freelance career. She set up a make up studio within Michele Burke Nails Salon ’53 Main Street’ on the Main Street in Dundrum. During Michelle’s time here she ventured further to work for well known Irish magazines such a Confetti, RSVP, Stellar, VIP and signed a freelance contract for RTE. She worked on TV Commercials for SKY and TV3 and has done MakeUp for TV shows such as Saturday Night with Miriam, Xposè and The Late Late Show.

In 2015 Michelle qualified as a Semi-Permanent Brow Technician. Due to her attention to detail in her make up career, her brow career has flourished.

In 2017 Michelle was appointed overall Winner at The Irish Wedding Awards for Freelance Hair and MakeUp and has been shortlisted as a Finalist again this year.

Due to demand, Michelle left the studio in Dundrum and opened her own studio, MICHELLE MONTGOMERY STUDIOS, in Windy Arbour currently offering MakeUp and Semi-Permanent MakeUp.
