Natalie Lanners. Minneapolis Makeup Artist for WarPaint International Beauty Agency.

Natalie - Minneapolis Hair & Makeup Artisan

What makes your artistry unique?: My artistry is unique because I take the extra time to communicate, listen carefully, and build trust with each client. We discuss their vision, likes and dislikes, the occasion, and what they’re wearing. This helps me create a look that is appropriate, meets their expectations, and matches their individual style. I also welcome feedback at the end – this ensures clients get exactly what they are dreaming of!

What inspires you? Learning - As a teacher, learning is so important to me! I am inspired by the fact that there is always something new to learn and improve upon – whether it’s makeup related or not!

Style Icon: Demi Lovato. I love her rocker-chic style.


  • Reading – I love Stephen King and a good murder mystery!
  • The Aviary (aerial fitness).
  • Snuggling with my 2 cats.
  • Trying new foods and restaurants.

WarPaint Artisan Since: October 2016

Specialty: Bridal makeup and hair – I tend to gravitate towards timeless, natural makeup and romantic updos.

Education & Experience: After receiving my Bachelors degree in K-6 Elementary Education from St. Bens, I worked for the MN Reading Corps, and taught 5th grade in Shakopee before attending Faces Etc. of MN. I received my certificate in Multi-Media Makeup Artistry and have since gained experience in many areas of makeup! Although my focus, and true love, is bridal, I love trying out everything makeup has to offer. I’ve worked on a TV pilot, a music video, short films, runway, and I’ve done character makeup for school plays, and zombie makeup for the Zombie Pub Crawl.

Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.
