Paddy McGurgan, who has made up celebs from Hollywood actress Mischa Barton to supermodel Caprice, has taken up residence on a ground floor of Royal Avenue.

Taking up the top floor is Khara Pringle and her professional photographic studio. Khara is well known for her vast portfolio of commercial, corporate and fashion shoots.

Various feel good packages are being offered by the creative pair including the ultimate makeover package, 'Face Forward', and 'Model Me' which is designed for aspiring or established models to achieve creative and unique shots.

The sleek new space was spectacularly launched on Thursday night.

Brands used by Co Armagh native Paddy include American skincare brand Embryolisse and beauty products by Make up Atelier and T.LeClerc.

Paddy said: "I'm beyond thrilled to be opening up a new store in Belfast as it will not only provide a greater opportunity for me and my team to increase personal rapport with clients by offering a more in depth individual make up and skincare consultation but it also means helping clients achieve the professional look at all times.

"In addition, I will be working more closely with Khara who is as passionate as I am when it comes to making people look their best."

Khara added:"The new studio provides the perfect space to accommodate all clients, whether that be for models during fashion or editorial shoots or for senior managers and business owners looking to create the right image that reflects their business, it provides the perfect backdrop for all."

She continued: "Paddy and I are both passionate about delivering a service which will ensure people are relaxed, happy and most importantly, look amazing. With the right angle, lighting, equipment and make up application, everyone has the ability to really shine."
