My fascination with makeup started at a very early age. As a child, I have a distinct memory of a Halloween when my mother dressed me up as a clown and tried to put mascara on me. Although a bit traumatic (mascara on a two year old?!), still, I was hooked. In 2000, I attended Von Lee Academy in Baltimore, MD, where I studied makeup artistry. In 2003, I packed up and moved to Savannah and it’s been love ever since.
Over the past 14 years, I have worked for several cosmetics companies, most notably Bobbi Brown, who I credit much of my deeper knowledge of artistry to. I learned that what really separates a good makeup artist from a great one, is the ability to create the illusion of flawless skin and an understanding of all skin tones. After years in the retail world, I decided to dip my toes into the spa industry. It was there that I was able to focus solely on my artistry. I had the opportunity to work with many brides and I realized that is where my passion lies. My dream was to go out on my own and share my expertise with brides-to-be.
In the fall of 2012, my husband and I welcomed our baby boy and I decided the timing was right, and Lauren Rossi Bridal Makeup was born. The excitement and anticipation on a wedding day is infectious and I feel so very lucky to be a part that. I strive to make every bride and member of their party feel comfortable, relaxed, and beautiful.
