Laura - Wedding make-up artist and hairdresser Central London
Laura is a vital and important part of our team and we are so lucky to have her! As Artistic Director of Make-Up, Laura holds regular masterclasses to ensure all the make-up artists are up to date with the latest trends and products. She also teaches up-and-coming artists in our own academy.
Laura's career has spanned ten years as a successful hair and make-up artist. Her background as a hairstylist led her to follow her ambition to train in fashion, TV, film, special effects and theatrical make-up. She spent seven years working for Chanel in London, Paris and Mexico on haute couture and ready-to-wear catwalk shows for fashion weeks, celebrities and the film Coco Before Chanel.
Today Laura divides her time between fashion shoots with celebrities and models, London Fashion Week, teaching make-up artistry at two of London's leading academies, and her private clients. She’s a busy girl and we are extremely pleased to have her on the team!
Praise for Laura from her brides and colleagues:
"I deliberated about whether or not to get my wedding make-up done professionally - deciding to use Laura is one of the best decisions I made on my wedding day. She did a first-rate job. My make-up was clean, simple, yet totally me and lasted the day without looking or feeling heavy.
"She's so calm, friendly and unflappable and just the sort of person you want around on a morning where you're likely to be a little tense!"
"I've worked with Laura since 2006, acting as head make-up artist on behalf of my photography business Mallinsons Limited."Throughout our time together Laura has displayed exceptional creative skill as well as a reliable and friendly working ethic. She has never let me down no matter how awkward the brief or client. In turn I highly recommend her to you or anyone else who could be interested in considering her."James Hope-Faulkner, Director, Mallinsons Limited
