The Fashion & Beauty Zone at Upload will be hosted by the incredible Aimee Connolly on Saturday. She has positioned herself as an entrepreneur within the make-up industry, having started her career with Benefit, moving onto Urban Decay and ending up with MAC Cosmetics, her time spent working with these industry leaders gave her a lot of exposure to many other incredible brands and kept her up to date with new trends and products! It wasn’t long before Aimee established herself as a freelance make-up artist and through sheer determination and entrepreneurial spirit she succeeded in paving her career not only in the beauty industry but also in social media.

With over 90 thousand followers tuning into Aimee’s world on social media it’s evident that she is a powerhouse in the world of make-up, and she will be sharing her knowledge, tips and advice with attendees at Upload. Whether it’s running makeup courses & educating, doing wedding makeup, special occasion makeup or TV, Aimee’s career portfolio is testament to hard work paying off! Her ability to branch out across multiple platforms has seen her become a regular columnist for the Sunday World, writing about all things beauty and keeping the nation up to date on new releases and current trends.

Her TV career has seen her as a regular face on TV3's Xpose and Ireland AM and she has worked on campaigns with global brands such as Rimmel, Bourjois, Littlewoods, Primark and Boots.
