About Riese Lauriat - Professional Makeup Artist

My love affair with makeup started with a "free gift with purchase". My grandmother was always perfectly put together and gave me her "gifts" from Estee' Lauder...and so it began. I made my friends over in junior high, high school, and everyone else who would let me get near them. When I went to cosmetology school, I realized hair was not my forte. But, obsession with makeup hit a new level and I couldn't get enough. Of course, that was the late 80's where there were no boundries with makeup! My life took a turn into the management and customer service world of salons, but my makeup passion remained. In 2000, I went back to doing makeup full time. I started my own makeup company in 2012, Whip Hand Cosmetics. Please check out our website at www.whiphandcosmetics.com. There you can see more of my work and see what we're about.

Even though I have been doing this for a long time, I continue to attend classes. I love to learn from other people. Because of my intense curiosity and love of all things art, I am able to do everything from everyday looks, beautiful brides, vintage and pin up styles, dramatic ladies, stage work, commercial, and model work. On your special day, you want someone who understands lighting and photo makeup. That someone is me!

Last year, after opening Whip Hand Cosmetics, I couldn't do as many weddings as I would have liked. I really missed it! But this year, I'm excited to be back. I love working with Brides on their special day ;) I am booking weddings in the Grand Rapids and the Metro/Detroit area's. I'd love to chat with you!

I'd love to be a part of your special day. Please contact me for rates...

    Riese performed miracles for my wedding. Riese and her assistant traveled to my wedding site from across the state to work on seven girls in just four hours. My make-up was immaculate, and somehow Riese was able to do something magical that let my make-up stay on for eight (8) hours in 85 degree heat without a hitch. Riese played up all the best features. With Riese's work, I looked polished and kinda timeless in my pictures. I normally don't look that good and I use make-up every day. I recommend Riese to all my friends, my family, and especially to you. A professional make-up artist is worth it - you will be looking at your pictures on facebook and your videos for the rest of your life.

    Riese did an AWESOME job on the makeup for my sister's wedding. She made my sister look absolutely beautiful and I was in love with my makeup as well. I wish I could hire her to do my makeup everyday!! She made my small eyes look bigger and I fell in love with my fake eyelashes!! Thanks soooo much Riese!!

    Riese was a lifesaver for my sister's wedding. We had a hard time finding a makeup artist and so when we finally did it was considered a last minute find. Riese was early for her appointment, fun, energetic and entertaining in her sky high heels. She had everyone done and off to take pictures in the time frame we were hoping for, and made my sister the most beautiful bride. She even covered up all the imperfections on my pizza looking face! Riese did a wonderful job and I would reccomend her to anyone needing makeup services. I almost wish I was getting married again so I could use her:)
