Saoirse Ronan Amongst Winners At The Xposé Benefit Awards Last Night

So here we have it, the low down of one of the biggest award ceremonies to celeberate Irish Influencers, Tv Stars, Makeup Artists etc. So many Irish celebs attend this event every year such as Pippa O Connor, Saoirse Ronan and this year Caitlyn Jenner even made an appearance. Its pink carpet glamour to the max! There are 13 categories and here you will find who won what and who was nominated:

Best Beauty Influencer

The winner goes to, Miss Keilidh Cashell. For those of you who don't know about Keilidh MUA, I'm sure there's not many of you who don't, she is an MUA from county Monaghan who is taking the makeup world by storm - Watch out SOSUE. She has gained over 160k followers on Instagram and her YouTube is growing by the minute with massive you-tubers such as NikkiTutorials and JamieGenieve following her. Her videos are absolutely hilarious and she 100% deserved the award. It was a tough category to win with the likes of Suzanne Jackson, Marissa Carter, Chloe Boucher and more nominated. Congrats Keilidh!

Best Freelance Makeup Artist

Again, another very tough category but the award went to Michelle Regazzoli also known as mrsmakeup_ie. Michelle is an incredible makeup artist and she has been working in the industry for over 14 years. This is her first award and she absolutely deserves it! She took to Suzanne Jackson's snapchat a couple of weeks ago to ask followers for some votes, looks like it paid of Michelle, well done! Other's that were nominated for this category include, Tara O Farrell, Paula Callan, Ken Boylan and more.

Best Male TV Star

Like all the other categories, this one was just as touch with nominees like Graham Norton, Baz Ashmawy, Louis Walsh and more but the winner deservedly went to Mr. James Patrice. James is an MC, Presenter, Actor and snapchat comedian. Along with that he also prides himself on being a #GlitterGuru. Well done James!


Best Female TV Star

Amanda Byram, Vogue Williams, Amy Huberman and many more were nominated for this category however Lucy Kennedy was the cat that got the cream this time. You will find Lucy gracing the screen with her hit tv show Living with Lucy. The star recently got quite a bit of backlash from fans when she agreed to host controversial guest Katy Hopkins. Seems to have all worked out now, well done Lucy!

Best Fashion Stylist

Courtney Smith took to the stage this time for best fashion stylist. She was up against the likes of Corina Gaffey, Paula Hughes, Roxanne Parker and more. Not an easy call to make. However Courtney is not just an editorial stylist, she is a creative director, writer and presenter and she has built herself quite a reputation from working with top brands such as Louis Vuitton and DKNY. She is now referred to by many as a style influencer. Congrats Courtney!

Wavemakers (thought provokers)

There were so many incredible nominees for this category such as Caroline Foran for 'Living with Anxiety' and Philly McMahon for 'The Choice' and many more but the award went to Mr Breslin, Susan Quirke and the Lust For Life team. A Lust For Life is  is a movement for mental health and well-being in Ireland. It is a registered charity and the the main aim is too transform the way we speak about and treat mental health. There is a website that covers a range of articles on anxiety, stress, wellbeing, fitness, cbt, therapies, minfulness, psychology, depression, personal stories, nutrition and compassion. It is an incredible movement and 100% deserved the award. Well done to everyone involved.


Best Irish Designer

And the award goes to Paul Costello for this category.  You will find some of Paul's collection in Dunne stores. He is absolutely killing the design industry. Well done!

Best High Street Range

Between Body by Byram, Millie Mackintosh, Amy Huberman and many other high street ranges the competition was well in truly tough. But could anyone else other than Pippa O Connor really win this award? POCO by Pippa is killing the denim wear and we are LOVING it.


Best Male Star of the Big Screen

The nominees in this category were absolutely out of this world. Cillian Murphy, Jamie Dornan, Brendan Gleeson, Michael Fassbender, Barry Keoghan, how do you even choose a winner? They all complety deserve the award. But alas, there can only be one and it went to Barry Keoghan. As much as they all deserve it, we cant disagree that Barry went above and beyond his beckoning call. His appearance in Dunkirk, The Killing of a Sacred Deer were absolutely phenomonal. He has been names as a rising star in the US. Could we be any prouder?

Best Female Star of The Big Screen

Some amazing nominees listed for this category but of course the winner was outstanding Saoirse Ronan. She is an incredible actress and has been nominated for three Academy Awards and she has received a Golden Globe. Saoirse has starred in Brooklyn, The Lovely Bones and many more. She is one to watch! Go get that Oscar girl.

Best Session Hairstylist

Dylan Bradshaw was awarded in this category. He was up against the best of the industry and of course it was a very difficult category just like this others. However, the award is in the bag for Mr. Bradshaw. Dylan owns one of the most prestigious hair salons in Ireland. If you want perfect hair, go to a Dylan Bradshaw salon! Congrats to him and his team!

There were just two more awards and they were Best Ensemble TV cast which deservedly went to Emmerdale and also Beauty Icon went to Caitlyn Jenner. From all the snapchats, tweets and instagrams of the award night it looked like it was a great night for everyone involved. Well done to all nominated, you are all winners!
