"It has been 6 weeks since my wedding and I waited until I received the proofs from the photographer to write my praise/review for fabfaces by Lauren, I could write a million great things about my experience but sometimes a pictures worth a thousand words. There are not enough good things I could say about my experience working with Lauren - besides for my bridal party and my makeup looking absolutely amazing Lauren make me feel completely at ease though the whole process (from trial to wedding day). I couldn't thank her enough for making me feel so comfortable, she is so sweet and my bridal party loved working with her as well. I will with out a doubt be booking Lauren for upcoming events and wedding I have to attend! Thank you so much Lauren!!"

"I didn't have time to do a trial run for my make up before my wedding and had never met Lauren before. The day of my wedding she showed up early and proceeded to not only calm me down, as I was a nervous bride, but also applied the most beautiful makeup I had ever seen. My eyes popped! My cheekbones were raised! My lips were luscious! Everything was perfect. Throughout the application I stopped Lauren so I could periodically check the mirror and Lauren was incredibly patient. As an added bonus, by the time my makeup was done I felt like I had a new friend.
I really took a risk not doing a trial run or meeting Lauren before my wedding day, but I couldn't have been happier with the result. I truly felt beautiful on my wedding day, and that was in large part due to Lauren. I HIGHLY recommend her; even for the pickiest of brides!"

"Lauren did my makeup for a photo shoot and did an amazing job! She picked the perfect colors for me and I did not look overdone at all. To top it off, she is super sweet and I had a great time chatting with her for a few hours during the photo shoot. Highly recommend her!"

She then went on to become a personal shopper at Saks Fifth Avenue where she worked for over seven years with some of the world’s top designers, including Armani, Gucci, Brunello Cucinelli and Rena Lange. Throughout her career in the fashion industry she simultaneously became the unofficial makeup artist for her friends and family.
Lauren had a passion for cosmetics and attended classes taught by some of the master artists of Bobbi Brown, Laura Mercier and Nars.

Fox Show with makeup department head Tricia Heine, whose clients include Debra Messing and Kirsten Dunst. Lauren is also known for her work on some of Bravo TV's Real Housewives.
