La Quanna "LQ" Chong has been on the beauty scene since 2007. After attending Make Up Designory in NYC, La Quanna began working for The Powder Group as a production assistant. She had an integral role in producing The Makeup Show (NYC, Miami and LA). While working, she attended cosmetology school and became the editorial/production assistant for The Powder Group's own "On Makeup" magazine. Once licensed, La Quanna became a full-time makeup artist and hairstylist. Freelancing in the tri-state area of NY, she has had the opportunity to work with a wide array of clients and photographers.
