"I’ve been working as a Make-up Artist and Hair Stylist for ten amazing years. I love the variety this job brings and I'm grateful for all the wonderful experiences and skills I have learnt from working with so many fantastic creative people."
Laura started her career studying NVQ 2/3 in Beauty Therapy. This solid foundation helped her to perfect skin and eyebrows.
Laura always had an interest in make-up and after eight years of working in a salon, she decided to study for an HND in make-up artistry. On completion (with a distinction), she decided to move to London to follow her dream of becoming a full-time make-up artist.
Here are a few of her career highlights to date:
In 2012, Laura was honoured to be asked to be part of the Olympic make-up team. She worked on the opening and closing ceremonies for the Olympic and Paralympics. It was an amazing opportunity to be part of such a talented team.
In 2013, Laura won the Professional Beauty Awards Make-Up Specialist of the year. In the same year, Laura was make-up designer on the feature film, Amar, Akbar & Tony featuring the comedians Meera Syal, Nina Wadia and Ace Bhatti. This was an exciting project and Laura was thrilled to be part of the director, Atul’s team.
In 2013, Laura, faced a range of challenges working in Lapland and applying make-up in extreme weather conditions. This tested her skills and endurance to the limit!
In 2014 Laura had the pleasure of being Make-up Designer on The Staves ‘Black and White’ Promo, which won Best Alternative Video at the UKMVA directed by the very talented Jack Whiteley.
2015 has been an exciting year that included a work trip to Kosovo to work on a short film with lead actors, Jack O’Connell and Holliday Grainger, and being part of the make-up team who worked on the title sequence for the new James Bond film, Spectre, with director Daniel Klienmen.
