Samuel Paul Morales knew from a young age he was going to be an artist.
The 3rd generation Los Angeles native with a BA in Fine Arts originally intended to pursue a career as a portrait painter; he loved working with the mediums of oil paints and pastels. However with his fondness for photography and fashion he transitioned those skills into makeup artistry.
Samuel was inspired by legendary artist Kevin Aucoin and his ability to transform iconic beauties such as Janet Jackson with the use of makeup.
Samuel also works on several fashion and beauty advertising campaigns such as Forever 21, Paul Mitchell, Dynamite Canada and NYX.
He has had the pleasure of collaborating with incredible photographers Andrew MacPherson, Zoey Grossman, Naj Jamai and Tony Kelly among others.
Samuel continues to explore his love of Fine Art and plans on completing a series for gallery showing. He also sees a future in product development and looks forwards to creating his own line of products
Samuel is currently based in Los Angeles.
