I am passionate about Makeup! I take pride in creating and tailoring each and every individual look, I started my career as an account manager for Estée Lauder, then wanting to be the best I could with my artistry I went on to work for MAC cosmetics. Here is where I achieved so much working my way up through the brand to a Fashion cert skill level and also joining the management team of one of MAC biggest brands in the world.

After many years with MAC, I then decided to go solo as I felt my skills allowed me to. I started working as a freelance makeup artist in 2014 and it really took off, I have won multiple awards since.

I then found my 2nd passion in teaching, So I decided to pursue and secured my teaching accreditations. I saw a big demand for my classes and noticed a gap in the market for a top-class Makeup college that is run and tutored by jimmy and he’s a team of current and successful experienced artists.

And that’s when Jimmy C Make-up Academy was born in 2015. I opened my stunning academy in the heart of Limerick city centre where we now offer fully accredited VTCT courses that are internationally recognised in over 100 countries worldwide.
