Hi, I'm Film and TV Pro's Laurie Patricia McDonald. Makeup-Guru considered an essential addition to any crew! After over 3 decades of service, I'm still funky, new and uniquely creative.

Discovered by a T.V. Producer, while on set preparing a character (aging & bearding), I was immediately hired to makeup news anchors for a Pay T. V. review show.

By 1987 I was offered a position @ Chum Television where I continued steady employment for numerous channels. Here my skills developed because of the diversity of the many shows I worked on. From conservative more natural makeups for eg. politicians, doctors, authors & athletes to glamour for models, actors , musicians & news anchors, hosts. Also some special effects makeup for comedians, wrestlers & other clientel. My talents vary. For more than 16 years I've done makeup on movie junkets (ie. Film Festival, for stars, producers & directors).

I've worked on film, television, music videos, commercials, industrials, live stage & tv as well as print (eg. mags such as Flare, Canadian Living, Mode 1, Ocean Drive, Star Week, Broadcast Week, MacLeans, Now & many corporate magazines & brochures, as well as CD covers (inserts) & book jackets).

My artistry consistently grows as do I. Airbrushing is one of the mediums I'm proficient in & continue regular work as a freelance makeup artist in the Toronto Canada area.

From October 1987 to March 2016, I worked for Citytv on a full-time basis. Currently, I have been freelancing on music videos, commercial shoots and documentaries.

As an IATSE 873 permittee, I've been requested on daily work & I am a regular crew member of Moxie Productions. Look for my work at moxieproductions.com to see 'Talk with Kate' for example, an ongoing inspirational interview show. Follow me on Instagram @Ladytrycian.

After working with Mary MacDonnell (from Donnie Darko), during film festival, she requested me for the gala & asked "Why aren't you working in L A.?"

Anne Mroczkowski (well known Toronto news anchor), insisted on my personal touch for 20yrs.

The lovely Traci Melchor (entertainment host and reporter) demanded my makeup for the many shows we worked together on.

Chantel Kreviasuk said, "I know I never need to bring a makeup artist with me to Much Music, because you always make me look great!"

Ivanna Santilli repeats, "Laurie's the best!!!" We've hung out for hours at the MMVA's chatting about music and fashion.
