British-born celebrity make-up artist Lauren Whitworth brings 16 years of global industry experience to Nina Mua.

Lauren's journey to becoming a professional make-up artist all began after she graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Photography: she loved the process of what went on before the photography even started. Naturally, her innate understanding of how make-up translates through the camera lens coupled with her talent and attention to detail has made her highly in demand from professional photographers.

Iconic photographers such as David LaChapelle and Steven Klein have booked her to do the make-up on their fashion advertising campaigns such as The Gap. She works closely alongside Oscar and Emmy Award winning directors and producers. She has been spokesperson for global brand CoverGirl and head make-up designer for Vera Wang's runway shows. Assignments have taken her from Moscow to Greece and Lauren has accumulated clients such as Bloomingdales, Kohl's, Sephora and L'Oreal. Her work has graced magazine covers, billboards, subway posters, television commercials. And she has a fiercely loyal following amongst her high-profile A-list celebrity clients, such as Glenn Close, Kathleen Turner, Sally Field, Barbara Taylor Bradford, Sting and band Muse to name just a few.

We are excited at Nina Mua to have an artist who is still fully immersed in the industry who can impart wisdom to her students about everything they need to know to embark on their own journey into make-up artistry.
