I wanted to create something that was timeless and classic, something that would never go out of style. I bring that same energy to my clients and every photo-worthy event in their lives.-Samantha Mitchell
I must admit that I have always been a girly girl. I have loved makeup and all things pretty for my entire life. So it was no surprise to anyone in my family when I entered the beauty industry. For years, I have been a part of weddings and seen my skills grow and grow. Not only did my artistry improve, but I found my love for the craft deepening as I was able to explore my creativity and truly trust my skill. I loved being a part of a bride’s special morning, or an extra pair of hands on set of a shoot. But more than anything, I found that I loved natural beauty even more than high glamour.
This may sound backwards for a makeup artist, but I found my true love of makeup in minimalism. Simple shapes, natural tones, and timeless beauty. As my artistry grew, so did the potential for building a business. But I knew I wanted something different. I wanted something personal, something special. I wanted to break free from the stereotype of the ultra trendy or girly, and build a mature and timeless brand that clients could depend on, built on professionalism and passion. I also wanted to surround myself with industry pros who felt similar to the way I did. And then The Collective was born.
