As the filming of Game of Thrones Season 6 wraps in Belfast the talented team of Makeup artists who work on the show get back to ‘real’ life outside of Westeros which means they’re available to create A list looks for your festive parties and big occasions in early 2016. Dotted around Northern Ireland there’s a chance for GOT fans to have their makeup done by one of the crew of the biggest TV show in the world. I’ve put together their contact details and got their recommendations on their party season essential makeup products.
Having worked with these gals for the past three months I can vouch for their cheery demeanour even at 4 in the morning and absolute professionalism. These gals love what they do and they’ll bring that GOT magic to your makeup. Just don’t ask for spoilers – they’ll never tell!
