Let's get to know Laura!
Where were you born?
Halifax. I came to Saint John as a child and have lived outside the city in Hampton or Kingston for the duration of my time here but I love working uptown. ?
How long have you been a part of the Uptown Scene?
I?ve been most involved with the uptown scene since joining Perfumes Plus six years ago. It has connected me to so many people throughout my time here.
What is your favorite thing about being a makeup artist?
I love when I can help a woman to gain some confidence. Teaching how to apply makeup is probably my favorite thing as it inspires and empowers women to feel good about themselves for the long term which happens when you learn any new skill really. It is very life affirming to see someone light up when they figure out a new technique or approach. ?
I have two Yorkshire terriers who are actually uptown girls as well! They come to work with myself and my husband every day and hang out in his doggie friendly office. They love King Square and have visited Kate?s pup at Silver Daisy from time to time.
What?s your uptown ?insider tip?'
Enjoy the city on your feet. You end up meeting lovely people and there is always a good cup of coffee around the corner. I really think that gives you the best picture of Uptown Saint John.?
