orann Schindler is just a small-town girl living in a lonely world…wait, that line has been used somewhere before. Okay, take two: Lorann Schindler is a makeup artist based out of the Dallas-Fort Worth area of Texas. Crediting Barbie as her first makeup inspiration, she would get her hands into anything she could find growing up to try to recreate Barbie’s many looks. At the age of eleven Lorann began to work with her local high school’s theatre department doing hair and makeup. By the time she was fourteen she had booked her first clients for homecoming and prom, and in the sixteen years since has not missed a single prom season.

Lorann is a creative who works in all mediums of art with makeup being her focus. She studied photography, and the basics of art and design principles at the University of North Texas before transferring to Tarleton State University.
