Tiffany Elie Makeup Artistry and Associates is a team of multi-media makeup artists working in beauty, commercial, television, and editorial led by founder Tiffany Elie and co-owner Samantha Schaefer.
Tiffany built her business applying natural looking makeup to enhance clients' existing features. Her goal has always been to make clients feel like the most pulled together version of themselves rather than using makeup as a disguise. Coupled with a commitment to professionalism and unmatched attention to detail, Tiffany has grown a successful roster of long-standing relationships that continues to expand with Samantha in a new leadership role. Clients trust the Tiffany Elie Makeup Artistry team with their appearance for events including weddings, bar/bat mitzvahs, formal events, portraits, and much more.
Tiffany has been working in the cosmetic industry for over 20 years. She started in college working part time at makeup counters and her interest only grew from there. She worked as a cosmetic executive and makeup artist with prestige cosmetic brands such as Stila, Laura Mercier, Clinique and Shiseido -- even managing an Estee Lauder spa. By 25 she had already reached the executive level for department store makeup, overseeing 19 locations. Her extensive knowledge of the cosmetics and skincare industry paired with her meticulousness prompted her to establish Tiffany Elie Makeup Artistry in 2010.
In 2013, Tiffany added Samantha Schaefer to her team as a makeup apprentice. Samantha, a natural creative, quickly proved her talent and became a lead makeup artist. Since joining the team, Samantha completed an associate's degree in photography and earned a Bachelor of Arts in graphic design. With a knack for the arts and love for makeup, in 2021, Samantha made the decision to pursue her passion full-time as a co-owner.
Tiffany and Samantha remain committed to the highest quality of service and continued education in the latest industry trends and practices. Together, they are excited to share their makeup expertise with even more clients, both in studio and on-location.
