Brisbane’s Laura Sharp is all of our makeup goals in one.

This Brissy babe is ruling the instagram universe with her amazing mix of photos and insta-videos showing off her latest creations and newest trends in the makeup world. She is now bringing her tutorials to life, by collaborating with amazing makeup brands such as MAC, and now she’s taking it one step further by releasing her own line of incredible lashes – Laura Lash! Her stunning range of lashes have been modelled on some of our favourite influencers, including Beautifinda feature Alex Paiige. Laura is building her empire right in front of our eyes and we are so lucky to be in the midst of it! Already an enormous year for her, we can’t wait to see what she comes up with next !
