Tara Wright

Spring Lake, NC

My name is Tara Wright and I am a licensed cosmetologist currently located in Spring Lake North Carolina right outside of Fort Bragg Military Installation. I am a published makeup artist and I have worked as a makeup artist for NYFW (New York Fashion Week) for 2 years now. I enjoy all areas of the cosmetics industry but my greatest passion is makeup. My personal approach to makeup is getting people to see that makeup doesn't just enhance your beauty but it can give you a confidence like you've never known. While working on photo shoots it has been an honor to see models come out of their shy shell and become comfortable in front of the camera. That is how I want everyone to feel after working with me.

I attended and graduated from Paul Mitchell the School in Fayetteville, NC where I was on the Design team and found my passion for makeup. I participated in many fashion shows and photo shoots while in school which pushed me onto my current path exploring the world of makeup and its many uses. My recent work/jobs include:

New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer in Sept 2015 where I applied makeup to models per designer requests while working under VooDoo Makeup Owner/Creator to create some of the specific looks for designers

New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter in Feb 2016 where I directed all makeup artists throughout show with specific looks and approved all work done by makeup artists to ensure the look was correct and perfected to designer’s specifications

Strings – The Movie in Apr 2016 where I applied initial makeup to actors/actresses per Director and Wardrobe Stylist and provided touch ups throughout day to actors/actresses based on what I was seeing on playback tv

Fitness Model Photo Shoot in Apr 2016

Educational Photo Shoot in Apr 2016 where I styled hair and applied makeup per my vision while educating two students under me on hair styling options and makeup applications for photo shoots. Assisted photographer with poses and lighting while educating two students on their role as a HMUA in a photo shoot setting
