Toronto Makeup Artist Mimi Lara

Toronto Pro Makeup Artist with 15+ years experience

A 15 year professional, Mimi started doing makeup for the Theatre as a teenager attending Etobicoke School of The Arts. She was raised a performer, having studied dance and dramatic arts starting at ages 4 and 10 respectively. Makeup was always a part of every artistic discipline.

Being of Mediterranean-Hispanic heritage Mimi was raised tri-lingual and at 20 moved to Europe to travel and work aboard the world’s most luxury cruise liners. Beginning this adventure as a beauty shop sales attendant, this soon led to several rewarding years as an International Hostess and Jr. Cruise Director with 2 prestigious cruise lines. Here she was able to indulge her natural ability for foreign languages. She now speaks Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and French in addition to English.

Upon returning to Canada, Mimi started working for MAC Cosmetics in one of few PRO Store locations around the world. During her 5 years with MAC PRO she participated in countless events and fashion shows.

Mimi has longstanding working relationships with many commercial and corporate clients, as well as photographers and wedding planners. Every bridal season Mimi works with a select number of brides in and around the Greater Toronto Area, and specializes in large bridal parties requiring fast work and or a small team of artists. Mimi’s airbrush makeup and airbrush tanning services are sought after among brides and others.

Mimi has also worked with brides throughout the GTA, Brazil, Argentina, Turks & Caicos and Washington DC.
