Lisa Luthi is a professional makeup artist in the twin cities metro. She studied Mass Communications with an Emphasis in Public Relations and Theater at UW- Eau Claire. After college, Lisa moved to St Paul where she started modeling professionally. On set she loved learning about all the tips and tricks of the trade. Her passion for makeup came well before that but was really accelerated by her emersion in the beauty and fashion world.

The initial spark for her passion for makeup came early on during her first theatre production of Annie where she had her debut in the makeup chair behind stage. “I wanted to know about everything; from what kind of makeup and brushes they used, to how they applied it to transform you into your character. Makeup is a powerful thing!”

Years later during college she studied theatrical makeup and enjoyed the unique and very dramatic style associated with stage makeup. “You can transform a young 18 year old into a 72 year old woman. I loved it all!” Even though theater was her starting point, what really made Lisa take the leap into being a professional make up artist was the opportunity to help everyday women feel and look their best.

She has a passion for building rapport with clients and finding just the right look for them on their special occasion. With experience in Weddings, Senior Portraits, Prom/Special Occasions, Makeup Consultations, Film and Editorial Makeup there is little she can’t handle. Lisa also loves collaborating with photographers, models, directors or local businesses to help inspire and create a look they love!
