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, Commercials, Red Carpet (Oscars + Emmys), Runway (Mercedes Benz Fashion Week), Music Videos, Films, Live Concerts, Bridal, Theater, and Press Releases. Throughout my career, I’ve worked with various organizations such as Comcast/NBC Universal, Universal Music Group, Fox, ABC, CBS, MTV, A +E, Bravo, The History Channel, CNN, ESPN and more. 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 LA Fashion Magazine, Makeup Artist Magazine, Beauty LaunchPad Magazine (Winner of Editor’s Pick of the Week), The Wall Street Journal, The NY Times, Philadelphia Style Magazine and Campbell’s Soup. 

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 field, I have written published beauty related articles for Fox News Magazine, Posh Beauty Blog, Style Bistro, Makeup Artist Magazine and MITH Magazine. In addition to performing makeup applications, my career path has branched out to on-camera appearances where I've hosted a beauty TV show, as well as features in commercials, print, promo and music videos. When I have a creative itch, inspiration stems from challenging my skills in national artistry competitions, such as NAHA and RAWards. A career highlight was becoming Winner of Philadelphia’s Raw Makeup Artist of The Year. Also, I have had the opportunity to guest present to the students at MUD (The Makeup Designory, New York), where I teach them about the business of makeup and encourage them to pursue their dreams. 

Makeup artistry is my absolute passion and I enjoy every aspect of working within the beauty, fashion and entertainment industries. As an artist, I strive to continually evolve in my craft and push the limits of art and creativity. My ultimate goal is to bring visions to life, work as a team player, and help others feel beautiful in their own skin.

I am The Facestylist.
