About makeupxsamara

Samara Perchick


MakeupxSamara is a *natural glow* makeup company based in Raleigh, NC. What is a *natural glow* you might ask? Well, after looking through the images on this page you might notice a theme...natural, radiant, glowy, NEVER CAKEY, makeup. And that's not a coincidence. After 5 years in the industry, owner Samara Perchick has become known for her effortless, soft-glam style that is recognizable and sought-after throughout the Triangle. Her main goal is for clients to look in the mirror and recognize their reflection and feel like an elevated but natural version of themselves.

I think one of the most unique things about my business model is the pricing structure. As a recent bride myself, I don't believe in charging more JUST because you're the bride. In fact, I think it's unfair and borderline ridiculous to do that. I charge the same for EVERY client because I put the same amount of care and focus into each face I have the privilege of working on. Anything thing that sets my business apart...I never edit or use filters on ANY pictures of myself or clients, ever. What makes us beautiful are our differences and my goal is to enhance YOUR unique beauty.

    When I decided to walk down the aisle a second time, my priority was finding the right person to help my daughter and me look our best on our big day. I was so fortunate to have found Samara! Samara came highly recommended by a friend, and I couldn't have been happier with our experience. As an older bride, I was worried about looking overdone, but Samara's expertise put me at ease, and once she worked her magic, I truly felt like a glowing bride! We had many compliments on our makeup that day – and I was so pleased to see how fabulous we looked in our photographs. Samara puts the “artist” in makeup artist – she has an eye for accentuating your best features and making you feel like a million bucks.

    I hired Samara last minute after my original plan for makeup for my rehearsal dinner fell through. I could not have asked for a better, more talented makeup artist. Samara made me feel instantly at ease with her friendliness and professionalism. More importantly, she made me feel the most beautiful I’ve ever felt in my entire life. If I had known how skilled and professional Samara was, I would have hired her to do the makeup for me and my bridal party on my wedding day. She has a lot of experience with different types of makeup and is used to working on all ages and skin types, which I found out after I later hired her to do makeup for another event with my mom and grandmother (it goes without saying that everyone was thrilled with their makeup and the party guests were gushing about how great we all looked). I’ve had my makeup done by dozens of people, but no one makes me look as gorgeous as Samara does.
