How did you get started in makeup? I was always fascinated with the glamorous people, the ones you see in magazines and on tv, even as a child.  I started, of course, playing with my mom’s make-up trying to re-create what I had seen…as a teen, I did hair and make-up on my friends and family.  after
beauty school, I started out doing nails, but found myself being drawn to doing make-up…I did my first wedding party at 21…it was crazy and stressful, but it taught me all about timing!

If you didn’t do makeup for a living, what would you be doing instead?

I think I’d be involved in the arts…something creative.  painting was always my first love…oils, acrylics, watercolors.  I had aspirations of art school but chose beauty school instead.

What are some of your hobbies? This sounds boring, but i love to
read…I’ve got three books i’m juggling right now.  I’m very into music, and usually have my mp3 on when i’m not working.  I still paint when I when I can…try to keep the creative juices flowing!

What is the craziest wedding experience you’ve ever had? There is one that comes to mind.  it was the largest wedding party my assistant and i did together, just the two of us, and it was a party of 13.  There were so many people in the suite, and we were both working on two people at a time…rolling one girls hair in hot rollers, finishing another’s hair while it was
setting.  it was madness due to the sheer volume of people…there were nannies and little kids there, too.  but when it was all said and done, each girl looked amazing  and we were able to get everyone done on time!

What is the best wedding experience you’ve ever had? There are so many…and so many brides that i have bonded with, cried happy tears with, and shared personal stories with.  When I come home tired and worn out, covered in layers of make-up and hairspray, and I can smile knowing that the bride and her bridal party looked radiant and lovely, then its truly a great day…the best wedding experience ever…until the next wedding!

Name an exotic location you’d like to visit soon. Tahiti, hands down!  warm breezes, breathtaking sunsets…who wouldn’t love that?

Why do your clients choose you over some of your competitors? Wow, tough question.  Well, first of all, I love what I and make-up are my passion.  Beyond that, I’m super concerned with my brides wants
and needs.  I strive for perfection with everyone I work on…
focused no matter what is going on around me.  really, I’m so calm and low-key I think it helps to keep the bride calm, and that’s a good thing on such a big day.

What is the best piece of advice you can offer a bride and groom on their wedding day? The day will go by so quickly…just remember to have fun!!

Anything else you’d like to share? Honestly, I’m blessed to be doing what I love for a living.  everyone should be so lucky!

  1. I started out with Lori 23 (Yikes!) years ago…and I’ve seen her grow from a fantastic manicurist to the amazing artist she is today. Her singular focus on each and every client I have ever seen her work on is what I think makes her the best…the world can be crumbling around her, but when she is with a client, nothing else exists…I know if you try her out, you won’t be disappointed.

    I’m just sayin’…

  3. Lori did my hair and makeup (and that of my 4 bridesmaids, Mom and flower girl) for my wedding in October, 2009. Not only did she make me look the best I’ve EVER looked- she was a pleasure to spend the day with. Her work is amazing! Her calm demeanor is contagious- which is something you need on such an important and hectic day. I can’t say enough good things about her. Thanks, Juliet for providing such a great spotlight on her! And for recommending her to me. 🙂

  4. You don’t know how happy this makes me!! I’m glad Lori was the right fit for you Kelly and you looked beautiful! She is patient and very calm and so talented!

  5. Is there any other way to contact Lori White than by phone? I want to use her for my wedding. I have called her several times but there is no answer or voice mail. Maybe someone has her email address and can help me get in touch with her. Thank you!

  7. Lori did my hair and makeup for my wedding in March. She did an amazing job and was a pleasure to work with! She worked with my crazy schedule and came right to my hotel room armed with all her tools ready to get to work! I would recommend her to any bride (or bridal party) in the Vegas area. Thanks Lori!
