Laura Zahra is a freelance makeup artist from Melbourne, Australia.
Laura is passionate about the art of makeup and is continuously staying at the forefront of the industry. She has always been fascinated by the way makeup can set a mood, accentuate a person’s features and inspire their confidence.
Laura’s love of makeup began when she was a young girl, watching her older sisters get ready for a night on the town. She would go to her room and apply as much make up as she could and would pretend that she was going out, too!
Laura’s makeup journey so far has seen her study under the renowned Rae Morris, to take part in the L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival 2012 and countless collaborations with fashion photographers on photo shoots. She was also chosen out of many applicants to participate in the “Green Brush Program Mentorship in 2011”. This involved being partnered and mentored with a senior makeup artist in the industry.
According to Laura, “Every makeup sitting is a challenge for me. I learn something from each client and it inspires me to be the best I can be, while helping others be the best they can be as well!”
“I really enjoy the whole process of working with models and photographers to produce an amazing image. It’s extremely rewarding and exciting to see the end result of your efforts.”
Laura mainly uses respected brands such as MAC, Kryolan, NARS and Ben Nye.
From a clean and natural beauty palette to a complex high fashion look or making up a beautiful bride for her special day, Laura has an impeccable eye for detail and is always up to date with current trends.
