About

On WeddingWire since 2022

MakeupxSamara is a *natural glow* wedding makeup company located in Raleigh, North Carolina. 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 glowy version of themselves. Wait, this is weird talking in the third person..let me introduce myself.

Introduction

Hi! I'm Samara, and I'm so excited you're here! A little background on me: I have my Bachelors of Fine Arts degree and take color matching VERY seriously. Everything else, not so much. I'm a lover of Bravo, the beach, local news (my last name is a hint), and a skincare and makeup product junkie. Speaking of, let's get to the real reason you're here...to learn what I do!

Services Offered

I offer *natural glow* makeup application for all types of clients...bridal, bridal parties, engagements, family pictures, special events, wedding guests, etc.! In addition to that, I offer one-on-one lessons to teach and empower women (of ALL ages!) to learn how to create a *natural glow* look themselves! Make sure to check out my website to learn more about my Natural Glow Academy.

The MakeupxSamara Difference

One of the first things you'll notice about makeupxsamara isn't anything tangible; it's a feeling. After nearly 15 years in customer relations, I take pride in providing exceptional service and attention to every single client. I am known for my friendly and warm personality, and believe in leading with kindness and honesty always. I am an excellent communicator, I respond quickly to emails and texts and deeply care about making each client feel comfortable and taken care of before, during, and after sitting in my chair.

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. This also means that I am equally grateful and excited to glam wedding guests as I am the bridal party. Oh, and I also don't charge extra for lashes :).

Another thing that sets my business apart from others you might encounter...I never edit or use filters on ANY pictures of myself or clients, ever. No judgment toward those that do, but I don't believe in false advertising, and I'm personally exhausted of the cookie-cutter fake everything look perpetuated (especially to young girls) on social media. What makes us beautiful are our unique differences, and my goal is to enhance YOUR unique beauty.

While I will absolutley answer messages recieved through Wedding Wire, the fastest way to get a proposal from me is to submit a bridal request form through my website www.makeupxsamara.com. Can't wait to create some *natural glow* magic for you soon!

Best makeup artist ever- but for real!

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.

10/10 Experience- Book with Samara!

Working with Samara was amazing from start to finish. She was responsive, answered all of my questions, made me feel comfortable in her chair and my make up was amazing. I usually am nervous about having my makeup done and not liking the final look, but Samara did a step by step check in to make sure I was happy. I looked natural, glowy, and my makeup lasted forever. She even let me take pictures of everything she used that I loved so I can buy them to use at home. I highly recommend Samara for makeup for any occasion! I will definitely be using her again in the future.

10/10 you are in good hands

I lovedddd my experience with Samara and her team. She listened to exactly what I wanted as far as doing a very natural glowy look for my wedding day and she nailed it! She asked for feedback after every step which made me feel so comfortable and confident. I didn't do a trial because I was coming in from out of town yet she still made sure we were on the same page the whole time.
