My friend sought a make-up lesson from Sam, spending 4-hours with her and walked away with a look that prompted her friends to say “wow, you have never looked better."
Samina is the quintessential makeup and styling fairy godmother. She has a friendly demeanour that puts even the most awkward makeup novice at ease.
Wish I'd done something like this at age 20 so I didn't have to go through all these years of blundering through eye makeup and that mysterious 'smokey-eye'!

I value all my customers as each have a unique need and want. I enjoy the diversity of every single face I have worked on, and all the various jobs I have done over the years working with real women - mothers, photographers, directors, celebrities, models.. Here a just a few for you to read ...
To say that Sam is a Girl’s Best friend, Fairy Godmother and Makeup Stylist Extraordinaire is an understatement, doesn’t quite capture the gift that is Sam. She’s so much more… she is part beauty magician, part hypnotist, part therapist and an all-around transformer. Sam was recommended to me by a friend who “doesn’t wear make-up.” My friend sought a make-up lesson from Sam and ended up spending 4-hours with Sam and walked away with a look that prompted her friends to say “wow, you have never looked better: happier or healthier; what did you do; facial, drinking more water, laser treatment? You look vibrant, polished.” (no one said, “wow, you are wearing a lot of make-up” because you couldn’t tell she had any on).
Like my friend, I had no idea how to put on make-up. But unlike my friend, I wore make-up Monday through Friday (for work), one could say that I liked makeup, but I know now that I had no idea what I was doing, a difficulty compounded by Singapore’s humidity. So, I thought, let’s see what Sam can do for me… I walked away transformed. I realize now that I knew nothing; she taught me so much.
What’s so great about Sam is that she doesn’t represent one brand, but she knows them all, she knows the latest advances, which brands have the best products, the best brushes, the best tips and tricks, contouring, etc.
What I liked most about Sam is how much she cares about her clients; this is a labour of love for her, she seeks to understand her clients’ objectives, their lifestyle, and teaches them how to do their make-up (and take their overall style up a notch). And, she works around her client’s challenges (time-strapped professional women who have no time in the morning; transitioning make-up from day to evening; keeping makeup looking fresh during a frenetic high-stress 16-hour-day without needing powder or touch-ups, etc. or a drawer full of make-up and not knowing how to use it!).
Anyone and everyone who has worked with Sam remains friends with Sam “for life.” She is an amazing source of positivity and encouragement; she radiates beauty and love. My session with Sam was so successful that I had my entire team meet with Sam for a lesson and transformation. Sam is amazing and if you haven’t met with her already, you have no idea what you are missing.
