Desiree Lafore

Makeup Artist and Esthetician

Who would have imagined when my journey began in Dallas Texas over 25 years ago launching my acting career in children’s theatre (playing an illustrious whale) that I would build this career in makeup artistry? My fascination with transformation led me to utilize a different facet of my artistic ability to work with local photographers to create a unique look for nationally renowned musicians and photographers in various artistic avenues.

Eventually my ambitions became the driving force behind my relocation to New York which I knew was the central hub for artists. Fortunately, I combined this innate creative sense of artistry and business ability to ensure a niche in the world of makeup. I had worked in all aspects of media from Fashion Runway, Print and Television; my work has been featured in such magazines as Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, Bridal Magazine and People which ultimately led me to become a requested make-up artist for the full spectrum of celebrities to everyday amazing women. My career path has led me to collaborate with shows on A&E, FOX, ABC, CBS, CNN, MTV, VH1 and CMT.

My passion and curiosity led me to further my expertise by becoming a licensed Esthetician and skin care specialist. I continue to search for the latest technology and skin care products so that my clientele is provided an understanding of the skin from the inside out. I envision the human form as a canvas; where my artistic inspiration for makeup design is based on the philosophy that “a woman’s beauty is similar to that of a flower – each flower, though varies in shape, color or essence, possesses its’ own unique beauty.”
