Lauren Smith

Miss Lauren Smith is a highly trained Makeup Artist who works at all our shows and with our professional show teams.

Showing a flair for art as a child, Lauren went on to study Theatrical, Special Effects and Media Makeup at the University College of Birmingham. A four year career at NARS Cosmetics followed where Lauren received training in fashion makeup at the highest level, giving her much skill and beauty industry knowledge to add to her portfolio.

Now a freelance makeup artist, Lauren has worked on professional shows such as the Phantom of the Opera and has spent time at the Birmingham Hippodrome on several productions. Her TV credits include Doctors, The Only Way is Essex and many more. Lauren has also had the chance to create stunning looks for prestigious red carpet events such as the James Bond premier and showcasing looks for the opening scene of ‘Dawn of the Dead’.

Lauren is fortunate to have worked with many celebrities resulting in repeated work and has had a wealth of fashion experience; some of her looks have featured on popular fashion websites and billboards around the UK.

As well as working freelance, Lauren manages to throw time into her new found passion, teaching, where she feels privileged to be able to inspire other budding make up artists.

We are very lucky to have Lauren as our regular makeup artist at the SSPA Academy.
