Art is the paramount influence in Andrea C. Samuels’ life and work. She began her creative career drawing and sketching people at the age of two, eventually enrolling in art college courses in The School of The Art Institute at age nine. At eighteen, a pivotal moment occurred: Andrea’s passion for art merged into makeup when experimenting with senior prom beauty looks. In 2009, Andrea Samuels enrolled and graduated from Make Up First LLC in Chicago, IL., and has since landed clients including Nickelodeon, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, Maybelline Color Studio, Glossed & Found, Kraft Foods, Elle Magazine and V Magazine. Her work can also be seen in fashion and commercial editorials published nationally and internationally.
