Asami Matsuda
Make up artist
Editorial | Advertising & Films | Bio |

Known as an “Architectural designer of the face.” Her makeup is based on human anatomy. She often states, “Know the face, know the chemistry, then understand what this person is, who she is, then enhance the part of her you adore most. Bring her personality to her physical look.” Her makeup can be visually striking, but she can also create a simple, natural look that still enhances the subject’s appearance. Her collaborators and colleagues have consistently praised the execution of her makeup and vision. Her visions, her techniques, and her experiences as a sensational idealist keep influencing the industry.


Asami moved to New York and while she was studying English, she attended a workshop held by Linda Mason. Linda noticed Asami’s potential and told her that she should pursue her career as a makeup artist. Asami took Linda’s advice and in 2008, she started assisting Lisa Butler. One year later while she was working as an assistant, a French designer, Catherine Malandrino, discovered Asami and started including her in her projects.


In 2013, Asami was introduced to influencers in fashion such as Zac Posen and Deborah Lippmann, whom she began working for personally as well as professionally.


Asami had worked as key makeup artist for Brooks Brothers Women in collaboration with their creative director, Zac Posen on shows by create each seasonal look from 2014 to 2020.
