Just in time to get you a little more hyped about the upcoming Warpaint Ireland Championships in Dublin, we’re back with a bit more information on the fabulous judges. From a variety of backgrounds and with a staggering number of specialities, here they are:
First up is Maria Malone-Guerbaa, whose incredible portfolio showcases some of her many talents. Trained at CMBA before moving into a career in film, TV, and theatre, Maria’s makeup moment came when she was asked to help with some facepainting at a school event: from there, she’s never looked back, and her hundreds of thousands of Instagram followers couldn’t be happier.
Róisín Leacy has been working in the beauty industry for over fifteen years, and has been working hard to ensure a new generation of talent is nurtured. Having worked in some of Ireland’s most prestigious salons and spas, Róisín decided to open up the Gorey Institute of Beauty, where she continues to educate a huge number of successful makeup artists. She’s also the proud owner of Airbase Makeup Ireland, a brand she loves and supports, and she provides makeup services to the public out of her custom salon in Gorey, The Airbrush Makeup Studio. Catch her on Instagram here.
Last but certainly not least, Nuala Campbell, professional makeup artist and managing director of Titanic Creative Management and Titanic FX, is joining us once again this year. From working with Vogue to fashion week, Nuala has had many career highlights, but hasn’t settled down yet. In 2014, she opened a new chapter in her life with Titanic Creative Management, the leading training academy for prosthetics, SFX makeup, and props and wig making in Northern Ireland. In 2016, Nuala further built on this success by opening Titanic FX, a retail company which imports and exports a range of professional makeup effects products, as well as manufacturing and exporting Nuala’s own creations around the world. This no doubt contributed to her being voted one of Northern Ireland’s Most Inspirational Women by Business First Magazine in 2016.
