What Clients Say

Best recommendation I ever received!!!– Hedy S

A talented make-up artist who is beautiful inside and out! Lorin has the natural ability to bring out your best features in a very subtle way! She listens, hears you, addresses concerns, answers questions and gives advice all while having fun! I have known Lorin for many years, and whatever the job or the setting, she delivers with style and grace!– Hope R

Lorin is a pro. She is the real deal. After being disappointed by a few other artists and a couple of the makeup studios that are springing up in NYC, I was starting to wonder how to find someone who would give me a great look that was tailored to my tastes and my face, and not just some version of the Kardashian/YouTube/Contouring trend. I wanted a sophisticated and subtly sexy look for my recent 10th Anniversary Party, but I didn’t want to look like I was covered under 5 coats of airbrushing. I wanted a modern version of old Hollywood glamour, without being campy. What Lorin achieved with her talents just blew me away. She made my skin look dewy and fresh. She made it look like I was hardly even wearing makeup, but she covered my considerable veins, wrinkles, and lines, and contoured my middle-aged neckline and wide nose. She knocked 10 years off my face with the way she did my eye makeup. Not only that, my makeup lasted all night–through several costume changes and hours of dancing–without smearing or streaking. My friends kept asking me if I had “done something” to my face! Well, yes, I called Lorin Cole!! I cannot recommend Lorin highly enough. She’s an amazing artist and, in addition, she’s a super-fun and cool person to hang with while you’re getting ready for a big event. And she’s very easy to talk to about what you want, what you feel good about, what you don’t feel good about, etc. This is who you need for your big event or photoshoot.– Rachel F from NYC

I first worked with Lorin Cole on Photo shoots in Milan as a Model there. We later worked together many times on Fashion and Advertising jobs in NYC. As an African American model I was even more impressed with her expertise,knowledge and ability to do my makeup that made me look ‘Fabulous” in every shot. Her ability to work with models across the cultural spectrum is remarkable. I would highly recommend Lorin Cole as a top Professional in her field.– Recent Client

BEST. MAKEUP. ARTIST. EVER. Lorin Cole is – hands down – one of the very BEST makeup artists with whom I’ve ever had the pleasure to work! As a Art Director who was in the beauty industry for 4 years, I’ve developed quite the discriminating eye and tend to be a perfectionist when it comes to all things makeup. I had planned to do my own makeup for my wedding until I heard about Lorin from my mom’s close friend. I went to her website and immediately knew that she “got it” and called her and said, “if you can make me look half as gorgeous as you do in the photo on your site…” and we then had a conversation for over an hour about what kind of look I wanted, Lorin’s makeup philosophy, etc. When Lorin arrived at my apartment on the day of my wedding, she was so lovely and accommodating (and gorgeous, too!) and knew exactly what she wanted to do per our conversation and told me about every product she was using and how she was using it. She’s an eyebrow genius and mine are a bit wonky so she evened them out so they looked perfect. Lorin used exactly the right amount of makeup which looked so natural (not at ALL pancake-y or makeup-y but beautiful and perfect for photos) and I absolutely LOVED the end result so much that I happily let my brother take a million pictures at my apartment while I was getting ready when I’d ordinarily shoo him away. I was also happy to learn that Lorin is also an amazing hair stylist and she helped me with my hair as well! Words don’t do justice to how happy and beautiful I felt that night and I owe SO MUCH of it to Lorin. Will 100% absolutely work with her again and recommend her highly to anyone and everyone. Lorin is amazing! – Recent Client

Lorin, I can’t thank you enough!! Lorin taught me not only what colors to use for my skin & eyes (from very natural looking to a gala event) but also what products to use. She answered all of my many questions. I felt beautiful! Not only is she talented in her art but she was fun & very caring. Don’t hesitate to call her. She is the best in her field.– Jackee K

A Genius Makeup Artist – CC

Lorin is hands down my favorite makeup artist! I like a natural look and she always delivers and makes me look super fresh, and radiant. She has not only done my makeup for video shoots and print but I have gotten a private makeup lesson with her as well. She really cares and takes her time to make sure you will be able to recreate the look for yourself later. She is also someone you just want to hang out with – very important during long days of shooting. I can’t wait to work with her again!– Recent Client

Best Bridal Makeup in NYC! After trialing three other makeup artists for my very special day, none of which created the “me intensified” look I was seeking, I found Lorin Cole. As a dedicated follower of fashion for many years, it was a pleasure to find out the someone I had seen in numerous top fashion magazine editorials was available for weddings. My look had to be perfect for the day I thought would never happen. Lorin intensified my look which brought tears to my handsome groom’s eyes when I joined him at the altar. I have since recommended her to everyone who will listen.– Jocelyn

I have worked with Lorin for the past 15 years and her make up is consistently amazing. She instinctively creates the perfect look for each individual. She is fun and dynamic. My clients adore her and request her whenever possible. I highly recommend her. – John O

“Best recommendation I ever received” – HGS

“Lorin is a magician! She is the “Go to” makeup artist in New York City!” – Joanne F

“Lorin Cole is AMAZING! A very good friend set up a make up lesson/makeover with Lorin Cole, for his fiance and myself. After the lesson she styled our hair and re-touched our make up for a photoshoot with Pauline St.Denis. I’d been wearing make-up for years and I thought I already knew what I was doing. Well, I couldn’t believe my eyes…and when I asked my husband if he noticed a difference he said, “Night and Day!!! I think you’ve been selling yourself short for years!” Not only did she explain her technique in detail, she wrote down exactly which products she used and drew a colorful face sketch complete with a dab of each color. She is fun, yet professional and I wouldnt use anyone else!” – Cheri
