Make Up Artist of the Month for May 2021


Sam Visser is a 21-year-old makeup artist who began his career at just 13 and has been working with A-listers since before he could vote. He has big names like Kim Kardashian, Bella Hadid and Madonna under his belt and seems to just be getting started. This past January, he became the ambassador for Dior makeup, a fitting partnership considering Diore, as well as his, affinity for old-Hollywood style glamorous looks.

He uses his Instagram feed not only to show the makeup, but to cultivate a feeling through the video, the music, the entire look that conveys the emotion Visser is trying to. He describes his aesthetic as “glamorous, but always with a touch of rawness.”
