TING LAN | founder
Perfectionism. A term that not only describes Ting’s artistic habits as a young portrait painter but also as the makeup artist she is today. Her natural affinity towards painting portraits from the age of 5 eventually gave her the ease she needed to apply makeup beautifully on her clients. Having attended Makeup Designory School and ZMS, she learned about makeup application and hairstyles, eventually attaining her cosmetology license. Her experience touches on all facets of beauty: facials, hair colors/cuts, nails, and etc. Ting knew that pampering a client meant knowing the ins and outs of the industry and how to beautify them from head-to-toe.
With clients in both the fashion and bridal industry, Ting took every opportunity as a learning experience, eventually having the means to create her signature look: the natural bride. For someone who believes makeup should accentuate one’s beauty rather than cover it, it’s no wonder her specialty is flawless skin. Being a perfectionist, she’s known for her impeccable attention to detail in creating natural, flawless looks that make her clients walk away with smiles on their faces.
Jenifer’s love for Make Up Forever products ignited her passion in the artistry. So much, in fact, that she enrolled in the Make Up Forever Academy. Ting and Jenifer were coworkers and friends, so she was ecstatic about joining the team! She believes everyone is unique to their features and creates looks that complement them.
