MUA Monday: Laura Wisinger

This week's MUA Monday features Laura Wisinger, a makeup artist based in London and working in all areas of makeup.

When did you realise you wanted to become a makeup artist?I've always wanted to be a make-up artist, just thought it was out of reach when I was younger.
Where did you train and did you enjoy it?
I trained at Clydebank college in Scotland for two years receiving HND Make-up Artistry.
Then TV & Film make-up at Christine Blundell's Make-up Academy in London.
Was it hard to become established and get regular work?
Yes it's very a competitive industry to be in but I work as hard as I can to achieve my goals.
I won The Professional Beauty Awards 2013 Make-up Specialist Of The Year which has helped me gain more work and contacts.
What is your favourite style of makeup to do?
I love beauty make-up, making people look gorgeous and also classic vintage styles.
Is there any style of makeup you hate?
I love it all, I am happy to create any type of make-up as its all creative work.

What are your future goals in your career?
To design on more feature films, I designed on my first this year Amar, Akbar and Tony, I had an amazing time and it had such a great cast and crew.
I  also want to enter more make up competitions and win more awards.
I've had a fantastic few years of dream jobs, my favourite being working on the main make-up 
crew for the Olympic Ceremonies, one of the best experiences of my life. So as long as it all 
keeps rolling in like it has been I will be a happy bunny. I feel very lucky to be in the position 
I am at the moment.
What is your top makeup tip?
Really prep the skin properly before you start, never use wipes.
What makeup trend are you most excited about this year?
60's feel, I love all the vintage looks so a fashion twist on 60's Mod is my favourite for Spring/Summer on trend 2013.
SS13’s colour pop statements is a favourite of mine too.
What are your favourite high end and budget brands?
I really like Laura Mercier foundations, they are beautiful on the skin and MAC make-up for the on trend colours.
Loreal do some great budget products too, I love their lip glosses and mascaras.
