Samantha Cooper

Makeup Artist
Mens Grooming

Hair on Request

Sam's interest in skincare and beauty was evident from an early age. In order to nurture this interest into the beginnings of  her career, she sought specialized treatment training at Champneys Spa Group. Through hard work, talent, and determination, she was awarded a place at the prestigious Glauca Rossi School of Makeup in London, studying fashion makeup. Sam now has over 20 years experience within the industry and has built up an extensive portfolio of talent and loyal clients.

After being offered a position at Lancôme as part of the 'Artist' team for Selfridges, she was invited to apply her skills at The BAFTA Awards. This proved to be the catalyst needed to launch her into a career of decorated achievements and a list of clients with whom she still feels truly humbled and honoured to be working with.

Her editorial work includes Elle, GQ, Attitude Grazia, and Rolling Stone Magazine. Sam's professionalism and adaptability have proven invaluable in the pressurized environment of live TV work, music videos, and film. She has worked with amazing talent such as Gillian Anderson, Gwendoline Christie, Olivia Coleman and Emma Mackey.

Sam has extensive experience in male grooming, having worked alongside Hollywood actors such as Simon Pegg, Kit Harington & Stephen Graham, iconic figures such as David Tennant and Tom Daley, and internationally famous comedians such as Eddie Izzard and Ricky Gervais.

Her trademark is her lightweight application. Samantha feels, "skin should always be glowing and natural. I am a great believer that less can often be more, not to mask features but to enhance." Coming from a skincare background, she has vital experience with the finest products on the market and builds relationships with brands to ensure she has access to the very latest innovations and best products, resulting in an amazing finish tailored for each individual.

Clients: Amazon, Apple, Billboard, Bvlgari, Disney, Elle, GQ, Harrods, HBO, L’Officiel Homme, Mercedes, Monica Vinader, Netflix, New York Times, Paramount, Rimmel, Rolling Stone, Samsung, Sky, The Body Shop, The Guardian, The Times and Wonderland Magazine. 

Talent: Aimee Lou Wood, Andrew Scott, Ashley Walters, Brett Goldstein, Chari Howard, Charlie Heaton, Emma Mackey, George Russell, Gillian Anderson, Gwendoline Christie, Hero Fiennes, Indira Varma, James McAvoy, Jon Hamm, Kit Harington, Martin Freeman, Michael Ward, Natalie Dormer, Olivia Coleman, Raheem Sterling, Simon Pegg, Tom Felton, The Libertines and Mia McKenna-Bruce.
