October 3rd, 2018

October is our favourite month at Warpaint Towers: back to back shows each weekend and our social channels awash with Halloween images.  What’s not to love?  Everything kicks off this coming weekend with Professional Beauty Ireland 2017 on 7th and 8th October and we can’t wait to head across the Irish Sea for a weekend of makeup mania.  Alongside our Warpaint Live Stage on Sunday 7th and Monday 8th October, there’s a great choice of brands.  From top international names like Benefit Cosmetics to homegrown stars such as Blank Canvas, we can’t wait for the doors to open.
