Here is an excerpt:
Laura Nadeau is a professional traveling makeup artist who splits her time between New York City and Virginia, and also runs the mobile makeup and spray tanning service Lo and Co. We talked to Laura to find out what opportunities are out there for makeup and spray tanning in salons, how to accomplish some recent looks that are particularly challenging, and what’s particularly in right now.Where do you get your makeup inspiration?I get inspiration from street style, red carpet, runway and nature. However, my true inspiration comes form each individual and their face. I can do many beautiful looks on a woman, but I’m looking for a look in which she will feel special. I ask questions to find out their “makeup personality” and go from there.I always start with basic corrective makeup and then tailor my work to suit the individual. Sometimes, you need to show them something they didn’t even know that they liked; but when you are in a time-sensitive environment, it’s best to stick to your go-to looks Buy Backlinks PR I carry my iPad with me and have loads of images on my Pinterest account so I can show each client what I’m talking about . Miscommunication happens all the time, so I like to get a verbal and visual confirmation. Read entire interview here:
