Laura Smith realized she was fascinated with make-up at a young age after reading the book "Making Faces" by Kevyn Acoin. The book was so inspirational to Laura that she devoted her time attempting to recreate the looks on all her friends. As the years went on her love and skill for the art prospered.
In the fall of 2009 Laura graduated from Make-Up Designory (MUD), located in New York City. At the school she expanded on her skills and became more qualified to follow through on her commitment to the beauty industry. Soon after graduation Laura began working on: special event make-ups, independent film projects, photo shoots, and runway make-up.
Since Laura has relocated from NYC to Tampa, she focuses on wedding makeup. She feels there is nothing more beautiful than a bride on her wedding day. Laura will travel to various locations to accommodate the needs of all of her bridal clients.

Laura is incredible!! She did my bridal make-up, my mom's and my bridesmaids. The way she puts on make-up makes you feel like you aren't even wearing any, and the make up lasts all day. It has an airbrush look to it without being airbrush make-up. She has a great technique and you feel like the make-up absorbs right into your skin to give you a flawless look. She uses all designer make-up like Dior, Chanel, Bobbi Brown, YSL, NARS, etc, etc. Her prices were very reasonable and she is always on time or early! She has such an incredible personality and I enjoyed the time I spent with her on my wedding day and during my make-up trials. She's laid back and down to earth and honest. You feel like your best friend is doing your wedding make-up and she will design your bridal look to exactly what you request. Look no further than Laura, her make-up is exactly what you see in the photos. I know so many people who use her and I was recommended to use her by another bride! She is worth every penny and her prices are in line with what the other bridal make-up prices are. Love you Laura, you're the best!!

Laura is fantastic! Very sweet and professional. She helped my bridal party and I look beautiful the day of my wedding, and our makeup looked stunning in each photo/video taken! Not only does Laura do amazing work, but she was extremely accommodating and helpful in perfecting what I wanted my "perfect wedding day makeup" to look like. Book with Laura!!!

I had initially planned to do my own make-up on my wedding day, but I am so glad that I changed my mind at the last minute. Hiring Laura was probably one of the best decisions I made when planning my wedding!!
Laura is calm, cool, collected and immensely talented. Her artistry enhanced our looks without being over the top, and everyone looks amazing in the photographs!! Laura is also very professional. She is prompt, responsive and friendly. She is like having a new best friend when she enters your home or hotel room on your wedding day.
It was 90 degrees on my wedding day, and I am happy to say that while I did have to reapply powder (obviously I was sweating a lot!), my make-up remained in tact until I washed my face around 4 a.m. the next morning (it was a long night ...).
Laura's rates are extremely fair for what you get - including trials. Laura also includes fake eyelashes, which are very tasteful and enhance your eyes in ways you cannot imagine.
While I give props to the brides who are able to do their own make-up on their wedding day, do yourself a huge favor and hire Laura! She will take your look to the next level and you will look amazing in your photos!
