Fantasy look for awards showdown

By Amanda Poole

A Co Armagh make-up artist is calling on the public to help her win a worldwide competition.

Stacey Kilpatrick (29) from Markethill is the only make-up artist from Northern Ireland in the final of the Illamasqua Distinction in Make-up Artistry Awards.

The mother-of-one was in London at the weekend taking part in the live finals of the competition and created a striking fantasy look she has called ‘Lady V’.

She told the Belfast Telegraph the dramatic black, gold, pink and purple make-up look is inspired by Venetian masks. Now she needs people to ‘like’ her work on the Illamasqua Facebook page.

Stacey said: “The winner will be determined by 50% public vote, 50% judging, so it’s important that Northern Ireland gets behind me.”

To vote for Stacey visit Illamasqua’s Facebook page before October 25 and ‘like’ her image available at
