Today we’d like to introduce you to Laura Morales.
Laura, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I started doing makeup for family and friends for Halloween and family gatherings. I enjoyed every time I create a new “look” for everyone and the smile on their faces. I decided that if I was going to do makeup I would like to be educated in various aspects of the makeup, skin, and industry. I have attended several schools from Beauty to Special FX. I have enjoyed learning about the art of makeup and the history of makeup. When I’m on set I make sure to make people feel comfortable and feel their best.
Has it been a smooth road?
The road has been challenging I believe due to the many makeup artists that do not put their best foot forward while being on any set. Challenges come from clients and other makeup artists.
What moment in your career do you look back most fondly on?
The proudest moment is when I received my first Magazine Submission approval and was able to show my family my accomplishment. In the same moment is when I Volunteered at American Cancer Society and one of the ladies was so happy to see how much different she looked after we showed her how to apply makeup while going through Cancer treatment.
Every story has ups and downs. What were some of the downs others might not be aware of?
There are a lot of times when there is a struggle due to small budgets or locations, I believe the reason why I continue is because I love what I do and what I create.
What’s your outlook for the industry in our city?
Our city can help out starting artists by doing more Networking events (free) especially for someone that is just starting.
