Laura Burns

Born and raised in Sydney, Australia, my love of art and beauty began early, drawing portraits and painting canvases. Art is truly my happy place and painting faces was the most natural progression.

Now, living in Manhattan with over 15 years in the industry as a working hair and makeup artist, my career has been diverse, ranging from Editorial, Fashion and Advertising to TV and Red Carpet. 

Whether I'm enhancing natural beauty or completely changing my clients aesthetic, I adore the process and take pride in my creativity, precision and flawless results.
