Lynsey Ruane

Head Makeup Tutor & Student Liaison Officer

Lynsey spent 10 years working in accounts/administrative positions and one day finally made the decision to return to college and train as a make up artist. Lynsey says “It was the best decision I ever made”.

Once qualified Lynsey worked freelance, specialising in bridal make up. In 2010 Lynsey answered an advert to work as a makeup artist for the opening of VanityX and has been with Debbie and apart of VanityX growth since day one. Over the years Lynsey went on to progress and up-skill taking part in many fashion shows, editorials and photoshoots. She also retained her QQI Teacher Training Diploma and began teaching for VanityX.

Lynsey says “I adore bridal makeup, it is the most amazing experience being apart of someone’s special day. I love that no two days are ever the same and that I could be teaching one day, passing on my knowledge and skills to students or doing bridal make up. The most rewarding part is helping and guiding students to achieve their dreams”.
