Australian-born, New York-based makeup artist Sam Addington takes a holistic approach to makeup and grooming and is highly sought after for her minimalist aesthetic and focus on healthy, glowing skin. Sam’s education in fashion design, makeup technique for film and, more recently, integrative nutrition, equally influence her work, lending her a flair for both striking conceptual looks and “no makeup makeup”. Sam has collaborated with many cosmetics companies to interpret their collections into inspiring yet wearable looks for campaigns and content. She has also contributed to leading fashion publications such as RUSSH and Oyster as a writer and editor. Sam has a notable roster of celebrity clients for whom she has created looks that are at once red carpet and close-up ready.
