Our founder and Owner, Laura, has been in the makeup industry for the last 25 years. She started as a makeup artist, traveling extensively over the years, working with numerous magazines all the way through to 2018 where she was featured in The Bride Guide Magazine.
Laura has worked on everything from destination wedding looks to fashion events both locally and internationally.
Very early in her career, Laura started to take more of an interest in the quality of production and manufacturing of the products she had been using. She had grown curious as to where and how all of the different brands she was using had been produced and questioned their safety and legitimacy.
It was when her daughter reached for one of Laura’s lipsticks and developed an almost immediate reaction that landed her in the emergency room for several hours that she decided she could no longer trust cosmetic brands and products unless she could be sure that they were locally produced and had clearly labelled ingredients.
This is where “Makeup Addict” came into fruition. She tested hundreds of formulas and developed the most high-quality line she and her clients love! She made sure the formulas are non comedogenic, allergy free, vegan, gluten and sulfate free for all skin types! Products are also made in Canada.
Laura has vowed to stay true to her initial goal of ensuring that all Makeup Addict products are made and manufactured in Canada.
One of Laura’s goals with Makeup Addict is to support local organizations, such as:
Kids help phone
Down's Syndrome organizations
Helping single mothers
And all of those who are being affected by the current hardships that our world is facing.
