National Makeup Artist
“I love to inspire women to create their own individual looks for all aspects of their lives. From a romantic soft look to a strong boardroom look to a playful daring look. Even the no makeup look is better with makeup.”
Yves Saint Laurent’s National Makeup Artist, Pamela Morgan’s passion for YSL is rooted in the power of makeup to transform a person. “My career as a dancer always involved using make up for either film or stage. The effects you create with makeup are integral with the character you need to portray or the theme of the show. I was fortunate to meet and train with academy award winning makeup artist Ve Neill. She taught me so many techniques from film make up that translate to everyday life.”
Since then Pamela continues to draw inspiration from the arts. “As a lifelong student of photography and painting, and a self-admitted worldwide travel junkie, I always find my inspirations in my travel photos. Vivid sunsets in Tahiti, botanical forests under cloudy skies in Madeira, the wild terrain of Patagonia, the monochromatic beauty of Paris in the rain. These unique combinations of color, both found in nature and manmade have inspired me to create so many beautiful color palettes.”
Pamela has worked with a roster of actors including Julia Roberts, Johnny Depp, Winona Ryder, Elizabeth Hurley, Wesley Snipes, Michael Keaton, Madonna and Warren Beatty. Her makeup-tips have been used on Glamour.com, Elle.com and Allure.com as well as beauty blogs like Non Blonde, Sugar, and Pop Sugar.
Her simple yet effective makeup applications and techniques have appeared on many local and national TV programs including being a regular guest makeup artist on QVC for 2 years. Pamela’s work has also graced the pages of many prestigious magazines and she has worked on photo shoots and videos for many corporate clients including Disney World, Squibb, Sanofi and Johnson pharmaceutical.
