Rachel Gallagher Make Up Artist

Experienced professional makeup artist based in St Margaret's House, Meadowbank

Makeup Artist based in Danielle Carr Hairdressing, Morningside. I offer occasion, bridal, vintage and airbrush makeup services as well as cosmetic camouflage and makeup lessons. I have 7 years experience, hold a HND in Makeup Artistry and am fully insured. I use only professional brands such as Illamasqua, Kryolan, Inglot, Temptu and Mistair on my clients to ensure a flawless finish. I am represented by Superior Model Management and I'm the Edinburgh Regional Coordinator for Look Good Feel Better, the beauty industry's charity. I also offer film, theatre and special effects and prosthetic makeup services. I am the head makeup artist for Edinburgh College of Art's fourth year Perormance Costume show and work extensively with Napier Screen Academy.

My plan for today: shampoo & sanitise all of these. Unexpected time off, might as well clean all 200ish of them 💁🏻‍♀️

While I’m here, a friendly reminder to wash your own makeup brushes! 🛁 dirty brushes can hold bacteria and cause breakouts.

It’s really easy, all you need is soap and warm water. Pop the brush head under the tap, later it up and rinse. Keep the metal ferrule out of the water, make sure you’ve got all the soap out of the bristles, gently squeeze the bristles to remove excess water and leave them hanging off a shelf or counter top to allow air to circulate and dry them. I spray mine with Isopropyl alcohol afterwards because (normally) I’m using these on clients and my brushes need to be sanitary as well as clean.

Smee Cast at Imagine That Drama Classes final performance of Peter Pan last night 💖 what a week!
