Steph Lai – hair & makeup artist . One of the most dynamic hair and makeup artists in the industry today, Steph Lai credits her success to her creativity. Having always had a passion for art, she’s combined the craft of making people beautiful with an unparalleled artistic talent and has come up trumps in this competitive field. Steph was once told by a photographer that she “does makeup that doesn’t need retouching” – an unthinkable feat in the current photographic landscape. Having worked with every major magazine in New Zealand from Karen, Fashion Quarterly, Cleo and She to doing shoots with Grazia UK, Bazzar HK and building solid relationships with clients from hardcore fashion labels like Zambesi to commercial beauty icons like Wella, Steph’s experience is as expansive as her love of the job. She’s certainly come a long way from eating her mum’s lippies as a baby and then experimenting on her sister’s face as a child! One to watch, Steph’s star is definitely on the rise.
