Professional Makeup Artist

Laura Black Makeup

​I have always had the gift of seeing a woman's natural beauty and highlighting it through the art of makeup. To me, the face my canvas which I can transform into beautiful works of art.

I had the opportunity to fine-tune my art in many facets while working for Mario Tricoci Salon in Chicago. It was there that I was able to learn important techniques, work with amazing color palettes, and customize my own cosmetics for varying complexions. I was also able to work with hundreds of brides and bridal parties as well. I am privileged to have worked with CS magazine on a special Bridal Portfolio as well.

I spent several months working for the renowned cosmetic company Christian Dior as a freelance makeup artist. During this time in my career, I was a primary makeup artist in several high profile fashions shows in which I worked with designers such as Kenneth Cole, Betsy Johnson, and Calvin Klein.

Ever since I was little, I wanted to have the ability to stop time, you know like a superpower. One day I realized that stopping time is actually what I do for a living [mind blown!].

Professionally photographing for 5 years, but a photo enthusiast for much longer. I've always been really into the idea of being able to visit moments of your life whenever you want and it's a true joy to be able to do that for my family, and for all the new friends I meet along the way.
