In 2018, Professional Makeup Artist Lara Gabrielle received her international certification in Beauty, Airbrush, Studio, and High Fashion makeup from the “Harvard” of makeup schools: Makeup Designory Manila.
As a makeup artist, Lara is known to be very detail-oriented and well-organized. She ensures that all her tools are completely sanitized and in order. She takes time in analyzing her clients’ facial features as well so that she could bring out the best in them. For her, it is through understanding what her client needs, and listening to what her client wants, that she is able to do her craft well.
Indeed, nothing gives Lara more joy and pride than finally witnessing her clients’ delight after bringing their beauty to the limelight.
The Beautiful Journey
Having grown up with her grandparents, Lara met her biggest role models and art influences at an early age. Her creative and close-knit family engraved such a huge impact on her that she found herself falling in love with art as early as her formative years.
But it wasn’t until she entered college that she realized her one true passion.
Back in 2012, Lara enrolled in De La Salle University with a dream of pursuing a degree in Finance (yes, she also has an eye for numbers!). But as months passed by, she felt that her heart belonged to something else: makeup. At first, it started out with just a few friends who needed someone to do their makeup. With just her self-taught skills and innate creativity, she decided to give it a try– and the rest, as they say, is history.
After 4 fruitful years in the University, she graduated not only with a diploma and medal but also a renewed passion for art in the form of makeup. Since then, she hasn’t stopped learning and improving her craft– deeply committed to creating one masterpiece after another.
“Makeup artistry is a constant appreciation of a person’s beauty, which you bring in the limelight through your craft.”
