Tess Laeh is a fierce competitor and an even better makeup artist. Her inspiration comes from her four-year-old son, whom she gave up for adoption, but in whose life she is still very active and involved. She currently works as a mannequin maker at Fushion Specialties. She's strong-willed and doesn't take no for an answer and is a born leader. Tess has a flirty personality and a dynamic edge that stand out. She plans to do the most seamless and beautiful makeup to sweep the judges' votes to win and pursue her dream to move with her husband to Los Angeles.
