ABOUT

Sam Headshot

With an award winning career, I have worked on magazine photoshoots, television productions, fashion shows, live concerts, Hollywood movie sets and more.

I have had the opportunity to work on various Los Angeles based emmy nominated television shows, music videos, films, runway (Mercedes Benz Fashion Week), commercials, special effects, live concerts (Kanye West Yeezus Tour), bridal, theater productions, press releases and more. Throughout my career, I’ve worked with various organizations such as CNN, ESPN, Comcast, CBS, Bravo, The History Channel, MTV, and E!. My experience includes working with high-profile celebrities, politicians, executives and CEO’s.

In addition to television work, I have done an extensive amount of print makeup for clients including The Philadelphia Inquirer, The NY Times, Makeup Artist Magazine, Philadelphia Style Magazine, LaunchPad Magazine (Winner of Editor’s Pick of the Week), Campbell’s Soup and more. 

I am a graduate of The Rizzieri Aveda Institute with a background in Esthiology, which includes a degree and state-board license to provide makeup applications and skin care therapy. In addition, I have also completed a degree graduating with honors in Visual Communications from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM), located in Los Angeles. An active member of The Powder Group and various Pro Artist Organizations, I concentrate on continuing education to expand my knowledge of the rapid growth within the beauty industry, and continue to evolve my unique craft in artistry.

Tapping into another creative art form, writing comes naturally where I have written beauty related published articles for Fox News Magazine, Posh Beauty Blog, Style Bistro, and Makeup Artist Magazine. When I have a creative itch, inspiration stems from challenging my skills in national artistry competitions, such as NAHA and RAWards. A great career highlight was becoming Winner of Philadelphia’s Raw Makeup Artist of The Year. In addition to performing makeup services my career path has branched out to on-camera appearances, such as hosting a beauty TV show, as well as features in commercials, print, promo and music videos. In the past, I have had the opportunity to guest present to the students at MUD, The Makeup Designory (New York) where I encourage them to pursue their dreams within the industry. 

Makeup artistry is my absolute passion and I enjoy every aspect of working within the beauty, fashion and entertainment industries. My ambition to continually grow and experiment within the industry helps to push the limits of art and creativity. My ultimate goals include bringing visions to life, work as a team player, and help others feel beautiful in their own skin.

I am The Facestylist.
