If you have ever seen an Elaine Turner photo shoot or David Peck lookbook, chances are you have seen the work of Aubrie Layne. The world renowned makeup artist has evolved from the bright eyed beginner, to Global Makeup Artist for Houston based beauty giant Laura Mercier Cosmetics, to go-to girl for the female movers and shakers of Houston. Now, she can add studio owner to that list with the recent opening of Lucky Cat Beauty Studio. Layne, with co-founder, beauty business guru, and fellow Laura Mercier veteran Laura Landry, is on a mission to bringing professional level services and products to the people, especially people like me with a deep seeded fear of the makeup counter.
