Today we’d like to introduce you to Lauren Wilde.
Lauren went to college to become an opera singer, but she was singing in Italy one summer when the makeup artist needed help and so she assisted her and the experience led to her realization that she enjoyed makeup so much more than performing. From there she dived into the world of makeup, learned various styles and began perfecting her craft. She knew she wanted to do creative things and so she explored film, creature design, and prosthetics and grew into an award-winning makeup artist.
In speaking with her we were blown away by her courage to take on seemingly impossible projects and through sheer determination, skill and intellect transform the impossible into reality. She loves collaboration opportunities to work on things that are strange, unique, weird, or seemingly too hard to execute on – she thrives on the challenge and consistently delivers. She is one of the best examples of LA’s incredibly talented, unique and diverse talent pool – where else can you find someone like Lauren?
