Ahead of her salon reopening, Lynda Strain shows us what she's been upto in lockdown with an exclusive look at her new luxury 'Love Lynda' photoshoot.

It is so good to be getting back to some normality.  I am re-opening my salon in Kerrykeel on Wednesday 1st July and as happy as I am in returning to my work, I am also nervous as the coronavirus is still around but I will take every step necessary to assure the safety of my clients and myself.  

I have been a busy little bee during lockdown, working on the Lynda Strain Makeup Range safeguarding the future of my brand during these difficult times.

I will be doing regular photoshoots to allow you all to see the beauty of my products and I am thrilled to share with you the launch of the first of the “Love Lynda” Luxury Photoshoot Campaigns.

 I hope you all continue to keep safe.

I present exclusively to the readers Of Donegal Woman:


A Photo-shoot takes planning, creativity, imagination and a team of likeminded individuals to bring a true vision into fruition and that’s exactly what we did. 

I would like to thank Terry Burton from Noir Photoique and April from Loco Media who along with myself created this amazing shoot.

Also, to the rest of our dream team, Vivienne Gawley for clothes styling, Francess O’Connell from Belle Hair Studio for styling the hair.

Breda Canning and April McManus, the two beautiful models for their patience and professionalism throughout the day and it is their images who bring this shoot and my products to life.

Another important factor when considering a photo-shoot is the location.  To complement our images for this shoot, we chose a true favourite of my own, the stunning location of the Georgian, family run Rathmullan House, set on the shores of Lough Swilly. Thank you to everyone at Rathmullan House who made this possible.
