I trained at London College of Fashion, where I achieved a Foundation Degree and a BA (Hons) Degree in Specialist Makeup for Fashion and Editorial.
I have over 10 years experience as a make-up artist and hair stylist working in fashion, music television and celebrities.
I have worked for Marie Claire, Vogue Nippon, Sugar, Red, Psychologies, OK and FHM and celebrities including The Saturdays, Sting, The Script, Annie Mac, Selma Hayek, Jamie Winston, Amy Childs, Scarlett Moffatt and Metallica.
My TV work includes Goks Fashion Fix, The Voice, Britains Next Top Model, & Dragons Den.
I pride myself on being able to create a look for any individual suitable for any occasion based on style, personality, skin tone and age.
I have a varied kit which contains brands such as Armarni, Laura Mercier, Mac, Urban Decay, Nars, Bobbi Brown and Clinique.
"Lauren turned up early on my wedding day which helped to keep me (the bride) calm! She was professional, hard working and charming - she catered to everyone's needs and was flexible and fun. She was an asset to the day and made us all look so well. She did an amazing job on my hair and I felt gorgeous. I will be recommending her to my friends. Thank you Lauren."
"Lauren did my hair and make up for my wedding and also did my mum's hair and nails. She was an absolute pleasure to deal with! Lauren was on time for the appointment and for the trial a few weeks earlier. She is very calm and polite. This is particularly helpful on a rather stressful day like your wedding day! Lauren very professionally and with the minimum of fuss did a lovely job of our make up and my hair. I'm very pleased with the results. The wedding pictures look a treat - Lauren knows from experience how to get the best results on photographs. Thank you for helping to make my special day a real joy Lauren!"
"When Lauren arrived on the morning of my wedding she brought such warmth and calmness that the whole getting ready process was an absolute joy. Lauren worked on all my loved ones first so efficiently that they all felt beautiful and I never once checked the time or felt nervous. Even when it was my time as the Bride and chaos was all around she made me feel utterly calm. She never once minded other people interrupting while she was working. The end result took my breath away, I still look at my wedding photographs and can't quite believe they are me. Lauren is a true talent but more importantly simply lovely to have around on a special occasion."
"Lauren was fantastic on my wedding day. She was a calming influence even when there was 5 girls all crowded into one room getting ready! She was really accommodating and everyone said how amazing my hair and make-up was, I was really pleased with how I looked. Lauren really listened to what I wanted. I would highly recommend her!"
"Lauren did the hair and make-up for both me and my bridesmaid on my wedding day. Both the hairstyle and make-up were spot on and Lauren translated my description into reality perfectly. She was very organised, quick and turned up perfectly on time. All in all I felt I was in good hands and she helped the day go to plan. I would thoroughly recommend her for anyone's wedding day."
