Sheelagh Powell Makeup Welcomes New Makeup Artist

Busy, Busy, Busy…

I’ve been running my makeup business single-handedly for seven years now and have thankfully seen my services increasingly sought after. Last year in particular, it was with deep regret that I had to turn down a number of wedding makeups and events as I was unable to facilitate everyone. To alleviate the pressure on me and in an effort to expand my business, I decided 2013 would be the year I started working on building my ‘team’ of makeup artists.

Introducing Jane, my new makeup artist…

It is with great pleasure that I can announce my good friend and colleague, Jane Calderwood, has become the latest member of the Sheelagh Powell Makeup team! Jane and I met a good few years ago whilst working at Champneys Springs Health Resort. Jane’s background is in beauty therapy and training and she has a variety of experience in the makeup industry; having completed lots of makeup work for hairdressing photo-shoots, stage shows and competitions. Jane absolutely loves talking about weddings (She never stopped when it was her turn to get married!) so with weddings being the bulk of my work, I knew instantly that she was the right person for the job! She’s very chatty (like myself!) so I know her clients will feel comfortable and at ease with her. Jane will be offering many services including bridal makeup and trials, makeup applications, makeup lessons and photographic/special occasion makeup


With us, it’s all about Airbrush foundation!

I absolutely love my airbrush system; it is without doubt the best way to apply foundation! For this reason I knew I had to get Jane trained up so she could love it as much as I do! Airbrush foundation was designed for high definition TV and film use so it provides the most flawless base you can get – without being digitally airbrushed! As soon as I knew Jane was on-board ‘team Sheelagh Powell Makeup’ I got the kit ordered and the training booked! I am pleased to say that Jane is now fully trained and competent in the airbrush system and raring to go. She is a complete convert and will never be seen again waving around a foundation brush – the air gun is now permanently in her hand!


So I’d like to say a warm welcome to Jane, and to let you all know that she and I are both filling up fast for popular wedding dates, so don’t be disappointed and get in touch fast if you’d like to have your bridal makeup done by either of us.
