Blogger’s delight at invite to judge Ladies Day at Dundalk

July 10, 2017

Freelance makeup artist, blogger and local fashionista Rosie Kirk is looking forward to seeing what Dundalk has to offer in the style stakes when she joins an esteemed panel of judges for Ladies Day at the annual Racing Post Dual Race Day this Wednesday (12th July). 

Rosie’s unique style and skills have garnered her a growing social media following throughout Ireland, with the Mullaghbawn woman impressing her followers with an eye for cutting edge style and her ability to mix labels, looks and trends to great effect.  Her funky sense of style and beauty have earned her an enviable reputation in the industry and led to the surprise invitation from Dundalk Stadium to join prolific fashion blogger Lisa of Lisa’s Lust List fame on the Ladies Day judging panel – alongside Cool Fm DJ and Marshes Shopping Centre’s new Personal Stylist Rebecca McKinney, and Neil Cole from NI Gossip.

The mother of two told The Examiner she was “shocked and surprised” to receive the invitation to be a judge alongside such high profile fashion and beauty stylists and bloggers but she says she is relishing the challenge and excited to see what creations are showcased on the day.

Rosie has successfully pursued her passion for all things makeup over the last number of years, having completed her training with Ciara Daly Makeup, Paddy McGurgan’s Fashion and Photographic academy, Mario Dedivanovic Masterclass (Kim Kardashian’s Makeup Artist) and P.Louise Makeup Academy.

The popular freelance makeup artist takes regular bookings for brides to be, hen parties, occasional makeup, lessons and special effects along with her bespoke masterclasses. She also stocks a wide range of beauty items including the popular Aluxe sunglasses, sell-out Polished teeth whitening powder, Aimee Connolly Contour Palette, So Sue Lashes as well as several other makeup related products which are now available online at

The talented lady has also collaborated in various styling and makeup shoots and has modelled at Northern Ireland Hairdressing Awards in Belfast as well as making a name for herself with her own distinctive image and fashion choices.
