Introducing our first Makeup Artist of the Week – Lauren Andrew!

About Lauren

Lauren has been a qualified makeup artist for around one year and completed her Certificate II in Retail Makeup and Skincare at ‘Spring Hair into Training’ in Perth City. Lauren is interested in SPX makeup and is currently also studying a Diploma in Screen & Media.

Lauren grew up in her mum’s hair and day spa so the beauty industry has been through the family on the hair industry side, and now Lauren is taking the makeup side of it. Lauren prides herself on being a strong woman who knows what she wants (girl powder!).


Where it all started

“I first had a passion for make-up on myself, constantly buying the cheapest make-up I could find and working with the brightest & bolder colours. I self taught myself through YouTube… tutorial after tutorial, I practised on my friends as my skills got slightly better as they all wanted me to do their makeup for them. It wasn’t until I hit year 10 that I decided I wanted to complete my Certificate 2 to at least qualify me to assist in client make-up and hopefully land myself a job in a retail store.”

“It is an absolute override of joy handing someone a mirror after you’ve just finished beating their face with endless powder and foundation & seeing the smile on their face. Seeing how I can make someone happy with a skill I have learnt. To hear an endless amount of thank you’s! It really does warm something inside me. Making one feel beautiful. My favourite part is that it is always exciting. Every look is going to be different; there is constant change too. You get to meet new people all the time & travel.”

Holy Grail Products – Lauren’s current favourites!

  • Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette – absolute favourite – cannot go anywhere without it! (Tastes good too :P).
  • L’Oreal True Match Foundation – ultimate go-to foundation!
  • Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer – New holy grail that works wonders!
