Lori Taylor Davis

Global Pro Lead Artist, Smashbox


For 20+ years, makeup artist Lori Taylor Davis has been turning heads with her beachy, bronzy signature look. “It’s perfected, glowy skin,” says Taylor Davis. “A little of this. A little of that. I don’t overthink it.”


This California-casual cool girl draws inspo from her beloved hometown of L.A., where hyper-creative culture collides with breathtaking natural beauty. Mix that with an early affinity for her grandmother’s vanity table—a playground of blush, lashes and wigs—and you’ll understand why the “beauty junkie” gene runs deep in Taylor Davis’s DNA.


Taylor Davis serves as the Global Pro Artist Lead for the camera-ready Smashbox Cosmetics, which was also born and bred in L.A. When she’s not forecasting the latest beauty trends, Taylor Davis is sharing her timeless tips through Facebook Live, on-air at HSN and behind the scenes at the MTV Video Music Awards.


Taylor Davis has worked with everyone from Sandra Bullock and Bruno Mars to Rosario Dawson and Paris Hilton. Her work and go-to glam hacks have been featured around the world in WWD, Elle, More and Brides magazines. She’s appeared on “Extra,” “Good Day LA,” and—no joke—was even asked to put lipstick on a live llama (who, thanks to Taylor Davis, finally found her perfect nude).
