Professional freelance makeup artist.
Over 15 years in the industry

Hi, I am Barbara Toner, I am a professional makeup artist. I’ve been working in the industry since 2001 when I graduated from The Portobello Institute in Dublin after completing my ITEC Diploma in Fashion, Theatre and Media Makeup Artistry. I started my online makeup store Get Makeup in 2015. My blog is also available for you to read on Get Makeup.
Life as a freelance makeup artists is a rollercoaster, very exciting one day and tough going the next. But I do love working in the makeup industry it’s both challenging and rewarding. Every job is different and each day brings something new. I feel lucky to be able to channel my creativity through my everyday work in areas from TV, film, theatre to fashion and bridal.
This variety of work has afforded me fantastic opportunities to work on operas, feature films and tv dramas to weddings and fashion shoots. You can see my work below in my portfolio section and you can get in touch through my contact form at the bottom of the page.
"I was lucky enough to have Barbara do my make up, for not only my two best friend's weddings but for my own wedding day. She is very friendly yet professional and extremely talented at what she does. My make up was so natural and perfect and didn't need any touch ups during the day -even after a few tears of happiness. I honestly couldn't recommend her highly enough."Anna Wedding Day
"Barbara did a wonderful job on my wedding day make-up. She understood just what I wanted and offered great suggestions that I hadn't thought of. My make-up was immaculate from the church to the reception and late into the night.
I couldn't recommend her highly enough - she has done wedding make-up for a number of my friends since and we have all loved the results”Breda Breda's Wedding Day
Just wanted to say a huge thank you for everything on my wedding day. I was delighted with my makeup especially the eye makeup and false lashes. My sister and mother also were very happy with theirs and looked fab for the day. I wish you all the best in the future and would highly recommend you to anyone for any occasion, take care,Paula Paula's Wedding Day
