Makeup has been a lifelong passion for Dallas makeup artist, Lorann Schindler. Crediting Barbie as her first makeup inspiration, Lorann at a young age found something so perfect about her makeup. As soon as she could get her hands into makeup she was trying to recreate Barbie’s many looks.
When Lorann turned eleven she began working with her local high school’s theatre department doing hair and makeup. At the age of fourteen she had her first client. From there she was booked solid on prom and homecoming. Having always known she wanted makeup to be a part of her life she continued working with it on through college.
Lorann received a BFA in Fine Arts from Tarleton State University. Having a background in art she feels gives her a leg up in the world of makeup artistry. She is highly trained in color mixing, design principles, understanding how a composition should look and more. This makes her more apt to take art direction and see the full picture of whatever project she may be working on. It also makes her a well rounded artist. Lorann is able to do makeup for any job from a clean simple beauty makeup to an avant garde editorial look.
Upon her college graduation, she attended the Makeup Training Academy to hone in on her craft even more. Lorann has now been freelancing full time since 2011. She has worked on many photo shoots, runway shows, and TV and movie sets. Among other clientele she spent a year of working at KTXD-TV as a makeup artist for Texas Living/D Living, The Texas Daily and D: The Broadcast. Lorann is also an artist on staff with Toni & Guy’s European sister company, Essensuals London, located in the Shops at Legacy.
