Hello! My name is Lara Quinn and I am a Gold Coast based makeup artist that services the Gold Coast & surrounding areas ( including the NSW Northern Coast, Brisbane & Sunshine Coast ).
With 13 years of experience behind me, I learnt all the skills of makeup artistry at the world renowned makeup school 'The Joe Blasco Centre' in West Hollywood USA. Having spent 5 years in the beginning of my career working in the US bridal & entertainment industry, I was extremely fortunate to have been mentored by a some of the top US makeup artists, Emmy award winning & celebrity makeup artist Ashlee Petersen and Mark Bautista, a MAC Pro & celebrity makeup artist.
The experience of learning and working over in the USA is what has given me invaluable knowledge, skills & professionalism, which ultimately led me to become one of the Gold Coast's most premier makeup artist's.
During this time, I have completed over 350 weddings, worked on countless television commercial's, music video's and advertising campaigns. It has always been important to me as an artist to continue to develop my craft and improve my skills so that I am equip with a broad range of skills in all aspects of the industry.
Because of my reputation in the wedding industry as an ABIA award winning bridal makeup artist, I am now receiving bookings and enquiries up to 2 years in advance. If Bride's are looking to book me for their special day, I would encourage them to get in touch asap to reserve their wedding date with me.
For the last 5 years, I have been working as a hair and makeup team with ABIA award winning hairstylist Melissa Jayne. My goal is to provide Bride's and their wedding parties an AWARD WINNING TEAM that is experienced, caring and passionate about what they do. As a combined hair and makeup team, Lara Quinn and Melissa Jayne have been an ABIA QLD FINALIST in both the hair and makeup categories every year since 2013. Please see the AWARDS PAGE for a breakdown our achievements during this time.
