An on-location airbrush makeup artist for over ten years, Laura's passion and talent as an expert airbrush artist has given her the ability to bring true beauty and life into every woman's face. Her flawless technique and professionalism is the best combination for a perfect bridal experience.


I have always had the gift of seeing a woman's natural beauty and highlighting it through the art of makeup. To me the face is my canvas which I can transform into beautiful works of art.

I had the opportunity to fine tune my art in many facets while working for Mario Tricoci Salon in Chicago. It was there that I was able to learn important techniques, work with amazing color palettes, and customize my own cosmetics for varying complexions. I was also able to work with hundreds of brides and bridal parties as well.

I spent several months working for the renowned cosmetic company Christian Dior as a freelance makeup artist. During this time in my career I was a primary makeup artist in several high profile fashions shows. I worked with designers such as Kenneth Cole, Betsy Johnson, and Calvin Klein.

Out of all my experience as a makeup artist, working with a bride on her special day has been the most rewarding. My goal is to make every bride I work with feel like royalty. My passion and talent has given me the ability to bring true beauty and life into every woman's face.

If I could give Laura more than 5 stars I would. I set up a trial appointment months prior to the wedding and was pleasantly impressed with the results. I immediately booked Laura for day of services. She was on time and a trooper seeing as she had 8 or so ladies make-up to do. All make-up was done and early. I've never felt more beautiful once my make-up was complete, my bridal party was also extremely satisfied with their results as well. My make-up lasted all day and evening. I would highly recommend Laura for any of your make-up needs.

I loved working with Laura for my wedding makeup! We did a trial a month ahead of time and I knew I had made the best choice. She was extremely professional and I loved her style. She got me immediately and we didn't change a thing from the trial. I looooved the fake lashes she applied, everything else felt very light and natural (which is what I wanted). Professional makeup is always more than I'd do on myself, but I still felt like "me" just better.

Laura is incredibly talented and made me feel unbelievably gorgeous on my wedding day. I was really nervous about finding the perfect makeup artist because ultimately you want to look more gorgeous than you’ve ever looked while still looking like yourself, and I didn’t know how I’d be able to communicate that to someone. Luckily I didn’t have to explain that to Laura because she just got it. She nailed the trial run, so much so that I actually had tears in my eyes. Not only is Laura an incredible makeup artist, she’s also a genuinely fun person and a joy to be around. I’d love to have the opportunity to work with her again in the future.

I could not have asked for anything more from Laura on my wedding day in June! I had heard mixed reviews about airbrush makeup online so I was hesitant to set up a trial with Laura, but I was sold the second I saw the results at my makeup trial. She knew what would work best to enhance my face while complementing my dress, veil, etc. The airbrush felt amazing- very light and natural but with great coverage and staying power. I booked her right away. Not only is Laura incredibly talented, she makes you feel comfortable and is such a joy to be around. She has unparalleled professionalism, responds quickly to emails and phone calls, and is very flexible (she was willing to stay an extra hour when my mother-in-law and grandma decided they wanted their makeup done too for my wedding). I highly, highly recommend Laura!

Laura Black was a pleasure to work with for my bridal makeup. The trial run was great and the day of the wedding was even better. The makeup application was flawless and lasted the entire day. Laura also did makeup for three others in my bridal party and they all looked beautiful. On the day of the wedding, Laura arrived on-location early and she was very professional and enjoyable to work with. She made me feel confidant with her process leading up to the day of the wedding. I would definitely work with Laura again for any special occasion makeup application.

I would highly recommend using Laura Black for wedding/professional makeup. Laura is extrememly talented, and professional. She uses the latest top of the line products, and even provides touch-up kits for brides on their wedding day. When doing my trial Laura and I chose a more "evening" look and then I decided later that I wanted my wedding makeup to be more "natural". Without even having to do another trial, Laura perfected the natural look on my wedding day, and I could not have been happier. She was an absolute pleasure to work with, and would absoultely use her for all my future makeup needs!

Highest praise for Laura Black!

Laura did make up for me and my bridesmaids for my wedding and she was absolutely fantastic. Her make up was very natural--flawless airbrushing and the best false lash application imaginable!--but still very striking. Laura is simply a master of her craft and you could not find someone more qualified for your big day (or other glam event). She was extremely patient (I did 2 trials before my wedding) and worked with me so that the make up on my wedding day was exactly how I wanted it. Laura is also a total doll and so great to work with.
