Irish Beauty Blog Awards return for 2016

Following a successful inaugural event, the Irish Beauty Blog Awards are due to return to Dublin’s prestigious Lillie’s Bordello on May 26, 2016.  

Set to be even bigger and better than last year, the Irish Beauty Blog Awards recognise and celebrate the hard work and dedication of the ever-growing Irish community of beauty, fashion and lifestyle bloggers, who are dedicated to ensuring their followers receive the latest fashion, beauty and lifestyle news. 

The Irish Beauty Blog Awards, sponsored by Tan Organic, sets to bring together Ireland's top bloggers, nominated by the public, giving them the opportunity to step away from their online platform and into reality as they meet and greet each other and their followers in person. 

The night will start with a cocktail reception hosted by Dingle Gin, followed by champagne and a selection of finger food, with sounds by DJ Paddy Davitt. The event design by Miller & Lamb promises style and class. 

Laura Mullet, a celebrity stylist, and Breakfast Republic’s Keith Walsh will entertain as compères for the night.

Last year winners included Pippa O’ Connor (, Suzanne Jackson (SoSueMe), Cliona Kelly (Peaches & Cream), Joanne Larby (The Make Up Fairy) and Melanie Murphy, who are all nominated again this year and are set to be in attendance on the night. 

Building on the success of last year, members of the public have this year nominated bloggers in the following categories:

Award category sponsors include  brands such as Tanorganic, Skinlogic, Professional Beauty Ireland, Glenisk, CB12, Provoke Touch of Silver, Cailyn Ireland, CarePlus, Kinvara Skincare, Fatlashmink, Twiznight and Be Perfect Cosmetics.

Tickets are priced  €15 and all proceeds will go to Breast Cancer Ireland. Attendees on the night will receive a goodie bag filled with products worth €250. Tickets can be bought online from

Noelle O’Connor, chief executive of Tan Organic, said: “Following on from the success of last year’s Irish Beauty Blog Awards, we are absolutely thrilled to be headline sponsors for a second year running.
