WORK LIFE: Career Chat With Bridget O’Keeffe,

Founder of Blush + Blow  



Thursday, 16 March 2017

Entrepreneur, make-up artist, beauty blogger - that’s all in a day’s work for Bridget O’Keeffe, who has also created a haven for swish beauty treats in Fulham. Blush + Blow (top marks for the cute name and dreamy interiors), is now a celeb go-to beauty bar destination with in-house glam squad, so how does she do it?

I open my eyes at… 7am (reluctantly in winter).


The first thing I do is… Let Pickles out (my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel/love of my life) and feed him.


Breakfast includes… My vitamin and omega capsules and a pint of water.


My journey to work is… A total treat. I ride my bicycle to work with Pickles in the basket.


My typical working day begins with… Turning the music on in the salon, lighting the candles and creating a vibe that embodies our brand.


I’m in charge of… Making sure the environment inside Blush + Blow is what my staff need in order to make the business a success.


A productive morning consists of… Writing a to-do list and then preparing to smash it.


Inside my desk draw you’ll find… Everything compartmentalised.


My favourite lunch spot is… Home in winter and under a tree on the green in summer.


I beat the 4pm slump by… Not noticing it because we are always manic around that time!


When I leave work… I notice how sore my legs are from running up and down the stairs all day.


My bedtime beauty essential is… A fully prepped face, complete with a hydration boosting oil capsule from Environ.


A tip for aspiring entrepreneurs? Always be prepared to work harder than anyone you know and longer hours than you could imagine, all with bucket loads of passion.
