Q & A with Makeup Artist, Samantha Orr

When did you fall in love with makeup?

I fell in love with makeup in high school. Back then, I used to do a lot of performing; from dance, to cheerleading, and musical theater.  I was in awe of the creativity of makeup and the fact that it instilled so much confidence in me and my performances.

What are your favorites looks?

My favorite daytime look is fresh face including  bronzed, dewy skin, a sweep of nude eyeshadows, feathered brows, mascara, and a little flick of eyeliner.

For night I love a full face with a beautifully blended contour, a dramatic highlight, winged liner, false lashes, and a pouty lip.

Do you have favorite brands?

It’s so hard to choose because I feel a lot of brands have something fantastic. I would have to say my favorites are Tarte, Becca, Urban Decay, Anastasia Beverly Hills, MAC, and NARS.

Who inspires you?

Fyza Ali, Chloe Morello, and Hrush Achemyan; all very talented makeup artists that I follow on social media. I absolutely love them. They’re work is stunningly gorgeous. Some people fall asleep reading books or watching Netflix.  I fall asleep watching makeup tutorials!

Describe your dream job.

My dream job is to be in the corporate sector of the beauty industry. I like the idea of working with marketing for campaigns and product launches. It would incorporate my passion for business and my love for makeup.
