The inaugural Irish Make Up Awards 2018 was a fantastic affair that we’re sure will continue for years to come. The first of these award ceremonies is particularly sentimental for us as one of our own Style Partners took home a very covetable award and title.

Green Orchid in Cork was named the best Semi Permanent Makeup Specialist of the Year South! “I am thrilled and excited to announce that I am the winner in the region of Southern Ireland!

“This year has been amazing for Green Orchid beauty salon!” said owner Magdalena. “It is very satisfying and motivating for me to be appreciated for my passion and hard work.”

Magdalena attended the award show on July 15 at the Dublin Crown Plaza Hotel with over 200 entrepreneurs from the makeup and beauty industry.


Irfan Younis, CEO of Creative Oceanic, organisers of the event, said: “We are very delighted to have welcomed such great Regional Winner Logo _ Irish Makeup Awards 2018-01contenders at the first ever Irish Make Up Awards 2018. It was a very memorable night dedicated to those who have spent their whole career in making people look beautiful.

“We will keep pushing the businesses and professionals forward to showcase their impeccable work and get the recognition they deserve.”

Magdalena said: “This is very important to me as permanent make up is my passion. I have worked on and build up in Ireland for over eight years.”

For those of you who don’t know what permanent makeup consists of, trust us, it’s not as scary as it sounds! Magdalena’s techniques will have you looking beautiful from the moment you wake up to when you go to sleep, for years.

“Permanent makeup is a solution for washing off pencil, smudged eyeliner or non-lasting lipstick. Made right, it should last two to three years on eyebrows and even longer on eyeliner or lips!

“When making new eyebrows for a client, I don’t give them just makeup, I give them peace of mind, more time in the morning, comfort, confidence, satisfaction and power.

“I have created my own Dream Brows technique for the most natural picture perfect eyebrows, as this makeup should be noticeable but not for the wrong reasons!

“With semi permanent makeup, I am able to bring back the smile to the faces of people with Alopecia or after cancer, who have totally lost their hair due to their health conditions.”



This award win comes at the perfect time for Magdalena and her team. Beginning new business ventures can be daunting and time consuming but this win is a big motivator for them. “I am preparing the first Permanent Makeup Academy in Cork, starting this September! Professionals from the beauty industry will be able to start a new PMU path or upskill their own techniques, with the best PMU teachers from Ireland and abroad.”

We can’t wait!
