Depends on the laser treatment

If you are having non-ablative procedure done, where you skin is not being peeled or physically damaged, then you should be able to wear make up right afterwards. 
If you are having ablative procedure, like laser peel, fractionated laser, then you will not be able to wear makeup for few days until your skin heals first from the procedure.

Each treating physician has his or her guidelines for post treatment care. Consult with your treating physician as he or she understands the scope of the treatment, the laser used, and the specifics about you.
