Grainne McCoy
Makeup Artist & Business Woman

Let's Talk

Grainne McCoy is set known for being a Semi-Finalist on The Apprentice UK in 2016. With an average of 8 million viewers tuning in each week. People across the UK and Ireland watched as Grainne was put through her paces by Sir Alan Sugar and his team. Having reached the semi-finals, Grainne’s drive, charisma and tenacity was recognised by the shows producers resulting in h er being asked back each year to mentor the new crop of candidates. First and foremost, Grainne is a professional makeup artist. Her creative flair and precision in makeup has led her to work at Cannes Film Festival and several high fashion editorial shoots for top publications. Whilst living in London, Grainne rubbed shoulders with some of the biggest names in TV and Film as she was head makeup designer at Google & Youtube HQ for their “Google Hangouts” series. Grainne has ¬†utilised her breadth of experience in business and makeup to launch her very own brand, “Grainne McCoy Cosmetics”. Grainne’s lashes and makeup brushes are stocked throughout Ireland and have flown off the shelves since going on sale. She is currently in development stage of further products to launch to the public.

What's On The Agenda?

Nowadays Grainne is a regular panelist on the Elaine Show on Virgin Media One. Having been invited as a one-off guest, the show’s production team recognised Grainne’s personality shining through on screen and offered her the opportunity to become a regular on the programme. Grainne’s engaging presenting skills were also exemplified as she hosted the inaugural Makeup and Beauty Awards 2019. Grainne recognised that makeup artists in Ireland were not being noticed for their creative contributions to the industry. Grainne took it upon herself to orchestrate this entire event by herself. The event was a major success, with national press coverage and widespread praise for the event. Plans are in place for the Makeup and Beauty Awards 2020 which will be an even bigger scale than the first one.¬†
