But with such a wide range of make-up artists on the visual app, it can be quite the maze to navigate. However, we are here to help. We asked the Irish make-up experts Laurence Keating and John Bowes for help and they obliged by telling us exactly who we need to be following right now for some epic make-up enlightenment. And with the IMAGE Business of Beauty Awards 2019 on the horizon, we want all the inspiration we can get our hands on.
