It’s that busy time of the year again where our days seem longer, and there’s not a minute to spare. With that, we’re hosting a special masterclass tomorrow at Boots Jervis Street to get you Desk To Dancefloor ready this festive season!

You’re invited to join IMAGE editor-in-chief Melanie Morris on November 11th at 4 pm, at Boots Jervis Street, for an hour of fabulous makeovers with beauty influencer and makeup artist Aimee Connolly and senior styles at Brown Sugar Debbie Blake Carr.

As we approach the festive season, Aimee will show you how to take your beauty look to the next level in a flash with the season’s latest looks, hero products, and styling tools, while Debbie will walk you through the best hair tips from drying to styling so your locks look as good as you do the whole day long. Look, learn and have a few laughs too as we get set to party. Places for this great chat are strictly limited and on the first-come-first-seated basis, so RSVP today!

She’s only halfway through her twenties and Aimee Connolly’s already laid the groundwork for a business empire with two beauty startups. Best known as a beauty influencer and celebrity makeup artist, rocking a social following of more than 90,000, Dubliner Aimee Connolly’s also a very serious businesswoman. Just two years out of UCD Commerce and French, Aimee’s already a proven entrepreneur- she’s taken her passion for makeup and created Sculpted, her own line of products and achieved nationwide distribution (look for them in The Loop, pharmacies and department stores). She’s also running courses at Sculpted The Makeup Academy and continuing to personally provide sessions with private clients for weddings, TV and special occasions. Aimee is an intuitive marketer with plenty of practical learnings to share about her experiences which is why this event is not to be missed!

Debbie began her career in hairdressing at the young age of 15.  Hairdressing wasn’t Debbie’s first career choice, however, once she began working in the industry she knew it was for her. She went on to become a fully qualified hairdresser aged just 17. Debbie began working at Brown Sugar when it opened six years ago and is now a senior stylist at the salon. She previously worked with salon owner Mark O’Keeffe in one of Ireland’s leading hairdressing chains and has now worked with Mark for almost 18 years. Some of Debbie’s clients have included Samantha Mumba, Bláthnaid Ní Chofaigh, the Seoige sisters and The Original Rudeboys to name but a few. She has also done work for RTÉ’s fashion programme Off The Rails. Some of the previous Brown Sugar photo shoots have showcased Debbie’s handiwork including the up-coming images of our most recent shoot, which Debbie was on hand to lend her expertise to

Top-Tip from Debbie: “It is really important to look after the condition of your hair and it is imperative that you trust in the recommendation from your stylist. Some people might shy away from salon products as they can get a cheaper version in the local supermarket, however, once salon products are used properly, they can work out much cheaper and more beneficial.”
