About Me

Laura Loukola and Kiko

Hi! I'm Laura Loukola, illustrator and beauty blogger based in Helsinki, Finland. My background is in Graphic Design, both in print and digital media. I also do freelance photography and styling. I like coffee, cats, climbing and cosmetics.

I am currently working as an intern in Social Media Marketing for a mobile game company. I’m also open for commission and freelance work, as well as blog related content.


Art, Photography and CoMmission

I specialize in creating expressive portraits and character art with digital media. People and their emotional world have always inspired me tremendously and I like to convey inner thoughts with gazing eyes, light and color.

All of my artwork is available for purchase as fine art prints (excluding some commission pieces). I also accept commission work - please email me for more information.

I’m also open for new potential photography clients. Here are some examples what I do: events, style photos, candids and portraits for bloggers, styling and product shots, editing and retouching.

For my media kit, resume and pricing, please get in touch via email:


Laura Loukola Beauty Blog

On my Laura Loukola Beauty Blog I share my passion for high-end make up, skincare and Japanese hand-crafted brushes. After moving back from Japan in 2014 I struggled a lot with my skin and I wanted an outlet to share my experiences, as well as my love for Japanese and other amazing beauty products. My nickname Laurantaina is a word play on a Finnish word 'lauantaina' (=on Saturday).


My views are unbiased and based on my own experience. All products are paid with my own money unless otherwise stated. I value transparency and mark clearly all PR/gifted items with an asterisk(*) and also end of the post.
