Boots Christmas Beauty Panel With Judy Wong, Fiona Cooke And Debbie Blake Carr
Now that Halloween is over, we are thrilled to announce the event of the gifting season with Boots at Jervis Shopping Centre, Dublin. You’re invited to take a seat and listen to some of the beauty industry’s top experts for an afternoon of beauty insights, secrets, and treats.
Join IMAGE editor-in-chief Melanie Morris on November 11th, at Boots Jervis Street, for an intimate panel discussion with professional makeup artist Judy Wong and fragrance expert Fiona Cooke. This lively, information-packed hour will provide you with all the ammunition you need to create the perfect beauty looks and scent combinations as we approach the festive season. Places are strictly limited and on a first-come-first-served basis, so RSVP today!
With more than ten year’s experience in print, commercial and tv makeup, Judy Wong is knowledgeable about all things beauty. Judy will be talking you through creating easy – but beautiful – winter makeup looks using a fabulous range of products available at Boots (which you can shop afterwards). TW, Wong recently walked away with the gong for Irish Makeup Artist Of The Year at the 8th annual Kerry Fashion Week.
Entrepreneur, PR professional, and fragrance aficionado Fiona Cooke is a busy woman. Having set up her own PR firm – The Works PR – in 2012, Fiona and her dedicated team have racked up more than 15 years of beauty expertise by working with some of the biggest names in the business. Her real passion, however, lies in fragrance and beauty. Having worked as marketing manager Ireland for Coty Fragrances before setting up The Works PR, she got a taste (and smell!) for the perfume field. Fiona continued to build her PR skills while honing her love of perfume by training experts and brands within the beauty industry and is now one of the country’s leading fragrance experts.
Debbie Blake Carr
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.”
Debbie’s favourite product is the Kératase Elixir hair treatment which she describes as the “champagne” for hair. This product is a deep conditioning, nourishing treatment, that works really well especially for people who have coloured hair or hard-to-manage hair.
